Shishupala (शिशुपाल) or Sisupala was son of Damaghosh, king of Chedi, by Srutadeva, sister of Vasudeva. Therefore he was not only cousin of Krishna, but also Krishna's implacable foe, because Krishna had carried off Rukmini, his intended wife. He was slain by Krishna at the great sacrifice of Yudhishthira in punishment of opprobrious abuse.

In Mahabharata

Shishupala (शिशुपाल) (III.13.27)
