The Kandyan Kingdom could not annexe the Four Korales. King Buwanekabahu succeeded in keeping it under his
control. Yet, Sena Sammatha Vickramabahu came to power in the Kandyan Kingdom. This prince carried on an
independent rule, for at least 37 years. Some
scholars say that this is proved by inscriptional
evidence. However, there is also evidence to say that there was constant unrest in the Sinhala areas.
