Vijayanagara was only the capital. Though he mentioned in the body of the text that the empire was called Karnataka, he chose Vijayanagar in the title because he knew Kannada and Telugu groups would fight if he called it Karnataka. Most Indian historians, like B. Saletore, P. Desai and Ram Sharma, also knew it was called Karnataka.

Desai titled his novel Vijayanagara Samrajya Sthapane. In , they celebrated the 6th centenary of the foundation of the empire. There were great scholars like Saletore, P. The Indian Council for Historical Research requested Dr Shrinivas Ritti, who also called the empire Vijayanagara in his works, to bring out a compilation of all published inscriptions.
In the introduction to the second volume, he says the empire was never called Vijayanagara; it was called Karnataka and that Mrs Filliozat was the first to point out, and that Sewell knew about it. He said historians chose the name Vijayanagara since it was better known but forthcoming scholars should think of using the correct nomenclature. Could you independently verify the name of the empire? In all official mentions, it was Karnataka. Dr Ritti has also quoted more than 30 inscriptions that show it was Karnataka empire, right from the beginning.
Karnataka or Kannada Nadu embraced some parts of Andhra and Maharashtra. The Maharaja of Mysore, in his inscriptions, used to say he was king of Karnataka.
Even later, Thanjavur, Vellore, and Madurai were ruled by Nayaks who were vassals of Karnataka kings and called themselves Nayaks of Karnataka. The British called the two styles of music in India Hindustani and Carnatic because the northern Mughal Empire was Hindustan and the southern Karnataka. They exhibit their idiocies because there is a difference between the empire and the state that exists today. It makes me feel very sorry. How willing are historians to take a fresh look at ideas that are widely accepted?
And if he is a foreigner who has said something, they repeat it and they take it as gospel truth. I am not sure if it is a lack of original study or plain jealousy. How important is it to call the empire Karnataka and not Vijayanagara? Do you expect it to provide a new context in the study of history? It definitely will. If you are a good historian, you should say what is in the text and not conform to general perceptions. When you study the Hoysala empire, do you call it Dwarasamudra empire or Belur empire? Do you call the Chalukyas the Badami empire? Why should you call Karnataka empire by a different name?
You should call a thing by its original, correct name. In this particular case, the correct name solves several problems. When you say Karanataka empire, the big question about the date of and story behind the foundation of the empire vanishes. The untrue legends of Vidyaranya and Bhuvaneshwari showering gold vanish too. So, when and how did the Karnataka Empire come into existence?
In There was no foundation as such.

It was decided that to face the northern invaders, there must be only one kingdom and one king for the whole of the south. He realises a stronghold in this area can stop invasions from the north. Hampi answers his problems because of its geographical situation—it is on the banks of the Tungabhadra, not far from his northern frontiers, and surrounded by rocky mountains that serve the purpose of fort walls. Hampi was in the hands of Kampila, a minor chieftain whose capital was at Kammatadurga, not far from Hampi. Ballala III got him killed and took control of Hampi. Ballala III was treacherously killed by the Madurai Sultan in , after he was invited to go unarmed to sign a treaty.
Ballala IV comes to the throne in but there are no inscriptions about him after that. He was in his 60s and must have died. To publicise his victory, the king makes a grant to the Sringeri Sharada Peetham in That marks the beginning. So there was no foundation as such. The study of inscriptions gives you this picture.
It was done over a long period. Madurai, the Yadavas of Devagiri were originally Hindu kingdoms but occupied by Muslims at that point. Most temples in these areas were closed and no rituals were performed. They were fighting among themselves for further aggrandisement of territory. The Hoysalas had a lot of vassals holding small areas. So Vidyatirtha must have advised that the south must be united.
