Mahajan rightly states that there are many sources for knowing the Gupta Empire (319-535 CE) as Literature works of  that time; Tour memoir  by Fahien a Chinese traveller; Inscriptions, Seals, Monuments,  and other literature after Gupta era too.

It is unknown about the land from where Gupta family started the rules.

From the reports of various Historians as Mahajan etc. (2), the following outlined data is available about Gupta emperors  (almost all Indian subcontinent  barring a couple of  south sates )  –
