Hint: Mirabai, was a 16th-century Hindu mystic poet and devotee of Lord Krishna. She is a celebrated Bhakti saint, particularly in the North Indian Hindu tradition. She was married to the eldest son of Rana Sanga, ruler of Mewar in western India.

Complete answer: Meera bai Mirabai was born into a Rajput royal family inPali district, Rajasthan, Mira then spent her childhood in Merta, Rajasthan. She is the only important female figure in the Bhakti movement culture of North India. She was known for her devotion to Lord Krishna, her treating Lord Krishna as her husband and being persecuted by her in-laws for her religious devotion. She has been the subject of numerous folk tales. She was known for her passionate praise of Lord Krishna and was widely prevalent in the Indian tradition and these hymns were most widely sung in Rajasthan. Meera bai is also the subject of a large number of Bhajans. She was married to the eldest son of Rana Sangha who was the ruler of Mewar.
Let's examine the option one by one :
A : Vikramaditya was a legendary emperor in India. He was mainly known for his generosity, courage, and patronage of scholars. He was born in 102 BC. So he was born much earlier than Meera bai so this is a wrong option.
B : Udai Singh II was the Maharana of Mewar and the founder of the city of Udaipur in the present-day Rajasthan state of India. He was the 12th ruler of the Mewar dynasty, while Meera Bai was born in the 16th century. So this option is also wrong.
C : This option is wrong because Chandan Singh was not the husband of Meera Bai.
D : King Bhojraj Singh was the eldest son of Rana Sangha who was the ruler of Mewar in western India. He was the husband of Meera Bai. Meera Bai unwillingly married Bhojraj Singh because of the pressure by her family. So this is the correct option.

So the option D, King Bhojraj Singh is the correct answer.

Note: There is a confusion regarding Meera Bai’s personal life because she was fully devoted to Lord Krishna and considered her as her husband. But it was king Bhojraj who was the real husband of Meera bai so try to remember that.
