If a king ended up not having a son, his younger brothers' progeny would be crowned the heir.For instance, Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar, one of the most celebrated Wadiyar kings, had no children and chose his nephew Jayachamaraja as his successor.

After the change of guard, Tirumalaraja's wife Alamelamma took all the royal ornaments and escaped to Talakadu, an area in the vicinity.

According to historians, Alamelamma was upset about what she considered was her husband's unceremonious ouster from the ruler's chair.

When Wadiyar's soldiers tracked her down to confiscate the ornaments, in order to escape arrest, she committed suicide by jumping into the Cauvery river.

But not before she uttered ominous words cursing the Wadiyars to an heirless future.

"May Talakad turn into a barren expanse of sand; may Malangi (a village on the banks of Cauvery) turn into an unfathomed whirlpool; may the Wadiyars of Mysore not have children for eternity," she is said to have chanted as she took the leap to her death.
