    Hanuman's adopted father Kesari wasn't the king of any empire. He was just an ordinary Vanara. Oct 2, 2017 at 14:08

    Then the movies portrayed it wrongly. The throne of Kishkindha went from Riksharaja to Vali to Sugriva to Vali to Sugriva to Angada. (Yes, I intentionally mentioned Sugriva and Vali twice.) Oct 2, 2017 at 15:15

    @Surya Riksharaja was the father (or technically mother) of Sugriva and Vali. He's mentioned in various places in the Ramayana, but his full story is told in the Uttara Kanda: ancientvoice.wikidot.com/src-vrm:ram7-41 Oct 2, 2017 at 15:40

    Hanuman was being asked to protect Sugriva from Vali, that's why he was staying with Sugriva. Later he became minister of Sugriva also. Besides I am not fully sure who asked Hanuman to Protect Sugriva. May be Guru (Sun God) of Hanuman asked as guru dakshina.
