Just before going to “List of Suryavanshi Kings (Suryavansh) (Suryavamsha) (Solar Dynasty) family tree (members) names“, let us know a brief, basic and very important information.
Lord Sri Rama was born in the great family of Suryavansh (Suryavanshi) (Suryavamsha) (Lord Surya / Solar Dynasty / lineage). In India, the Suryavansh (Suryavamsha) or Solar dynasty was founded by the great King Ikshvaku.
Few of the great people belonging to this great Suryavamsha (Suryavanshi) (Suryavansh) (Solar dynasty) are: Mandhata, Muchukunda, Ambarisha, Bharata Chakravarti, Satya Harishchandra, Dileepa, Sagara, Raghu etc.
We all Indians should be highly proud of being born in this greatest country Bharata (India). We have born in this greatest country as we may have done some ‘punya karma‘ (good deeds) in our earlier lives.
Note : Kindly note that, the below information is taken from Srimad Valmiki Ramayana and Srimad Bhagavatam. The names may vary as per few other Puranas, this is because one person is known by multiple names.
All the below mentioned Kings and Queens lived thousands of years. For e.g., Dasharatha lived almost 9k+ years. Lord Rama was present physically for more than 11k years on this earth.
King Muchukunda lived even during the Dvapara Yuga, that is, he lived for lakhs of years. This is the amazing part of this great clan of Suryavansh (Suryavanshi) (Suryavamsha) (Solar Dynasty).
Now let us move on to know the “What is the Suryavamsha (Suryavansh) (Suryavanshi) (Solar dynasty) family tree“.
Sri Suryavansh (Suryavanshi) (Suryavamsha) (Solar Dynasty) family tree was first started by svayam (directly) Bhagavan Sri Maha Vishnu / Srimann Narayana.

Ikshvaku : Ikshvaku was the son of Manu (Vaivasvata Manu) and Shraddha Devi. Ikshvaku children names are: Kukshi, Nimi, and 98 sons.
Since Ikshvaku was great and divine in this lineage, Lord Rama’s lineage is known as Ikshvaku Vansh (Vamsha).
From Nimi , the great lineage of Janaka Maharaja (Seeradhwaja) (Goddess Sri Sita Devi father) and Kushadhwaja proceeds further.
Kukshi : Kukshi was the son of Ikshvaku. | Vikukshi : Vikukshi was the son of Kukshi. | Kakutstha (Puranjaya) : Kakutstha or Puranjaya is the son of Vikukshi.

Through Muchukunda (Using the fire from his eyes), Lord Krishna kills a demon King called Kalayavana.
Ambarisha I : He is the son of Mandhata (Mandhatri). King Ambarisha was a great and divine devotee of Lord Vishnu.
Because of this great and divine King Ambarisha, we are aware of the great and divine Ekadashi vrata (Ekadashi fasting).
King Ambarisha was so divine and devoted to Lord Vishnu, even the avatar of Lord Shiva, that is, Rishi Durvasa (Lord Shiva avatar) was not able to do anything to this devoted King Ambarisha.
Purukutsa I : Purukutsa I is also another son of Mandhata (Mandhatri). | Kuvalashva (Dhundhumara) (Dhundhumar) : Kuvalashva (Dhundhumara) (Dhundhumar) is the son of Purukutsa I.
Since Kuvalashva kills a demon named ‘Dhundhu‘, he is also called as Dhundhumara (In Sanskrit pronunciation) or Dhundhumar (In Hindi pronunciation).
Kuvalashva (Dhundhumara) (Dhundhumar) sons names are: Dṛḍhāśva (Dridhashva), Kapilāśva (Kapilashva) and Bhadrāśva (Bhadrashva).

Some how Trishanku persuaded the great Brahmarishi Vishwamitra and even tried to go Svarga Loka in his material body. But, Lord Indra didn’t allowed Trishanku to enter Svarga Loka in his material body.
Thus, Brahmarishi Vishwamitra built an artificial Svarga Loka for Trishanku. Trishanku = Tri + Shanku = Three + Sins. He is the person who had made three ghastly sins.
Satya Harishchandra : Satya Harishchandra was the son of Satyavrata (Trishanku). Satya Harishchandra was one among the legendary Kings of the Solar dynasty (Suryavanshi) (Suryavamsha).

This poison was given to Sagara’s mother when she was pregnant by other wife of Bahuka.
Since Sagara was born with the poison during his birth, he was given this name Sagara. Because of this great King Sagara (Pronounce as – सगर / ಸಗರ / sagara), the ocean is known as Sagara (Pronounce as – सागर / ಸಾಗರ / sāgara).

King Raghu is the great king of Suryavansh (Solar Dynasty) (Suryavamsha). Because of him Lord Rama is called as ‘Raghavendra‘ (Indra among the Raghu family), ‘Raghava‘ (Son of the Raghu family), ‘Raghu Nandana‘ (Son of King Raghu), ‘Raghu Kula Tilaka‘ (Gem among the Raghu family),
‘Raghu Shreshta‘ (Best among the Raghu family), ‘Raghu Pungavaya‘ (Scion among the Raghu lineage), ‘Raghu Natha‘ (Lord of the Raghu dynasty), etc.
