Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Angati:King of Videha; he ruled atMithilā. His chief queen bore him a daughterRujā,all his other 16,000 wives being barren.

His ministers were Vijaya,Sunāma andAlāta.

He questions an ascetic,Guna,as to the various moral duties,and following his advice,devotes himself solely to pleasure. Ruja,however,is virtuous and tries to deliver him from his heretical beliefs,but it is not till the Bodhisatta - who had been born as the Mahā Brahma Nārada -comes down to earth in the guise of an ascetic,and frightens the king with descriptions of the various hells,that Angati is convinced of the error of his ways.

He was a former incarnation of Uruvela Kassapa. J.vi.220-55.
