QR – Cure – Quizzing Realms – 298

Happy Holi to all of you!

Here's an easy one.

X's father was beheaded at the behest of the king because he was asking for better governance. X received his higher education under Katyayan in Takshashila, and went on to become a great amoral political theorist and kingmaker, dethroning the royal who killed his father and replacing him with a person of his choice. Identify X.

Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!
