Correct option is
A

Dantidurga

In the seventh century, the big landlords and other chiefs were acknowledged as Samantas by the kings. These chiefs grew in power and assumed independence in some parts.
Rashtrakutas was one among them who assumed independence from Chalukyas. Dantidurga, the founder of the Rashtrakuta dynasty, performed a ritual called Hiranya-Garbha, which means now the person is "rebirth" as Kshatriya.
