Krishnadevaraya caste confirmation

Srikrishna devaraya is not a balija cast person he is a purely varma(kshatriya) cast .in teenage he loved balija cast women . but his parents reject the these things.after they arrange a marriage to kings daughters(sriranaga pattanam king).currently iam working for project on srikrishna devaraya.i met his related persons. 

Devaraya are belongs to different communits of Andhra Pradesh. 

Sangama Vamsa are belongs to KAMMA community 

Veera Vijaya Bukkaraya 

Saluva Vamsa are also belongs to KAMMA Community 

Thimma Bhupalaraya 

Latter on Vijayanagar clan rulled by Tuluva Vamsa which belongs to KAMMA and BALIJA (Intercaste/marriages are performed between two communitys)And also we can observe that Tiluva Narasanayaka does not having RAYA tittle in his name.The title RAYA is adopted from Sangama/Saluva's by Tuluva's 

Veera narasimharaya 

Aliya Vamasa are belongs to KAMMA community(Araveedu Aliya Ramaraya married Sadasivaraya's daughter and came into rule Viajayanagara) 


If any one need any clarifications,can refer Rayala Charithra and also can get clarify with Mr. Krishnadevaraya who settled in America (Mr. Krishnadevaraya is great grand son of Srirangaraya).

This is the review that was given by a student and there was a great grand son of krishnadevaraya was alive and this was the information given by him
