It is a matter of Treta Yuga; Kausalya was the princess of Kosala and the first queen of King Dasaratha of Ayodhya. King Dasaratha also had two other wives: Kaikeyi and Sumitra.

While Queen Sumitra always respected Kausalya, Kaikeyi did not like Kausalya and often taunted him. Unfortunately, King Dasaratha loved the young and beautiful Kaikeyi the most.

Kaushalya was very happy to hear this and started distributing sweets and gifts to everyone. Kaikeyi’s maid Manthara, could not see all this; she poisoned Kaikeyi’s mind. Manthara said, “You have always teased Kausalya and not even respected her. Now, after Rama becomes king, she will take her revenge and make you her slave,” she told Kaikeyi.

Kaikeyi impressed King Dasaratha and asked for two boons, due to which Bharat got the throne, and Rama had to go into exile for fourteen years.
