Late HH Uthradom Thirunal Marthanda Varma Maharaja of Travancore with his wife Ammachi Panapillai Amma Srimathi Radha Devi. Although Uthradom Thirunal was eternal Dasa of Sri Padmanabha Swamy, Radha Devi herself was a staunch Shiva Bhakta.
She used to worship Mahadeva first thing in the morning and chant Shivashtaka & Shiva Stuti everyday. After she passed away in 2005, Uthradom Thirunal himself immersed her ashes at Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga temple of Ujjain.

Srimathi Radha Devi with her children Paravati Devi and Padmanabha Varma. Usually the children of Maharajas from their Nair wives were known as Thampi and Thankachi. But since matrilineal tradition was eased, the son kept father's royal surname.
