To save the mighty kingdom of Vijayanagara from these dangers, Narasimha Saluva deposed his worthless master and acquired the throne for himself in 1485 AD. The SANGAMA dynasty thus saw its end through the 'First usurpation'. An efficient ruler Narasimha regained the territories that were lost and won the support of people, nobles and grandees. He placed Immadi Narasimha Saluva on the throne as he was badly wounded in a battle. The affairs of the state was still managed by him as its de facto ruler.
