Kālidāsa's Abhijñānaśākuntalam was one of the first works of Indian literature to become known in Europe.It was first translated to English and then from English to German, where it was received with wonder and fascination by a group of eminent poets, which included Herder and Goethe.A legendary king named Vikramāditya is said to have ruled from Ujjain around 1st century BCE. According to Srinivasachariar, writers from 8th and 9th centuries hint at the existence of three noted literary figures that share the name Kalidasa.A section of scholars believe that this legendary Vikramaditya is not a historical figure at all. These writers include Devendra (author of Kavi-Kalpa-Lata), Rajashekhara and Abhinanda.
Eminent Sanskrit poets like Bāṇabhaṭṭa, Jayadeva and Rajasekhara have lavished praise on Kālidāsa in their tributes.Another legend states that he visited Kumaradasa, the king of Sri Lanka formerly known as Ceylon and, because of some treachery, Kalidasa was murdered there.Several ancient and medieval books state that Kalidasa was a court poet of a king named Vikramaditya . Narayana Sastri, believe that all the works attributed to "Kalidasa" are not by a single person.Lakshmi Dhar Kalla (1891-1953), a Sanskrit scholar and a Kashmiri Pandit, wrote a book titled The birth-place of Kalidasa (1926), which tries to trace the birthplace of Kalidasa based on his writings.
He concluded that Kalidasa was born in Kashmir, but moved southwards, and sought the patronage of local rulers to prosper.
Scholars have speculated that Kalidasa may have lived near the Himalayas, in the vicinity of Ujjain, and in Kalinga.
