As per Mahabharata Vana Parva , Parashurama's maternal grandfater was King Prasenajit.

As per Valmiki Ramayana Ayodhya Kanda Sarga 110 verse 13, one of Lord Rama's ancestor was Prasenajit

Are they the same person ? Looking for a scripture reference

    Very interesting. it seems plausible since Prasenjit would have been born in the 19th Mahayuga much before Shri Rama's time in 24th Mahayuga. – Dr. Vineet Aggarwal May 6 at 17:03

    @Dr.VineetAggarwal - I think so too . There seems no good to reason to mention Prasenjit from Ikshvaku lineage in Ramayana as being the second child he was not even heir to the throne – Carmen sandiego May 6 at 17:13

    Furthermore , grandfather of Prasenjit (from Ikshvaku dynasty) is King Mandhata. Mandhata is said to have been born in 15th Treta Yuga - hinduism.stackexchange.com/a/21996/18974 . So for sure Prasenjit was born in or after 15th Treta Yuga. – Carmen sandiego May 7 at 4:11
  • Rama was Kshatriya and Parshuram was Brahmin from birth. – Sanatan Darshan May 7 at 4:46
  • @Sanatan Darshan - No one is denying that. – Carmen sandiego May 7 at 6:06
