Ashoka was a great king of the Maurya dynasty who ruled a large empire in the Indian subcontinent roughly in the 3rd century BC. Among the many violent wars he fought, the most famous is the war of Kalinga, which Ashoka won but only after immense violence and bloodshed.
The war of Kalinga moved Asoka so much, he subsequently gave up violence and converted to Buddhism. He is subsequently known for building many Buddhist structures and spreading the religion in and out of the subcontinent.
Among the structures he commissioned is an emblem which is now the official Emblem of India.
Assuming that 'Asoka' is the same as 'Ashoka' (Which I believe it is), he sent missionaries all over the world to spread the message of Buddhism, while still valuing their culture and religion.
king asoka was famous for:- philonthropic rule; ideal kingship; secular emperorship; true kingship (rajah) of people; heroic administration; goodnatured human being.
