Raja Dharam Bux Khan[1] (1812-1832) was the 45th Ruler of of the Chakma Circle gained the throne after his ancestor the 44th ruler Jabbar Khan (1801-1812). At that time the capital of the Chakmas was Rajanagar, Ranguania in the foothills of Chittagong[2].

He married Rani Kalindi who was born in the village of Kudukchari near the Rangamati-Khagrachari highway in present-day Chittagong Hill Tracts region of Bangladesh and belonged to a commoner father named "Guzong Bujjye" which literally means "bent old man". Raja Dharam Bux Khan had two more wives , Atakbi, the second wife; and Haribi, the third wife. His only daughter Rajkumari Menaka was by his third wife Haribi. It was difficult for Kalindi Rani to assume the throne after her husband Raja Dharam Bux Khan died in 1832. Chakma monarchy generally follows the law of primogeniture, which means that the eldest son succeeds the father. This could not be applied in the case of succession of Raja Dharm Bux Khan.
