Pandavas had 13 sons: Do you know them all?

Even after you have read, watched and heard so much about Mahabharata, there are numerous stories and facts that are new to you. I was recently reading this chapter from Mahabharata when I came to know about the lineage of Pandavas.

It is well known that all of them wedded Draupadi, and of course they had their individual wives also. Bheema (Bhima) in fact was the first one to be married amongst them, but the woman was from a Rakshasa and therefore was not entitled to be the king (weird). Arjuna also had other wives apart from Draupadi and Subhadra, who bore him sons, but they stayed in their mother’s kingdom.

In this article, I will try to list down all the sons of the Pandavas, often called as Upapandavas.

Incidentally, there is no mention of any daughter being born to any of them. This happens in lot of descriptions when it comes to giving the account of a dynasty.
