(this Rituparn was the same Rituparn who was the friend of Nal - see also 1-Ikshwaaku-Bhavishya-1; and  3-Ikshwaaku-Vikukshi

Chandra's son was Shrutaayu - he was killed in Mahaabhaarat war.
--This shows that there was only 15 generations gap between Raam and Krishn,
Raam -> Kush -> Atithi -> Nishadh -> Nal -> Nabhaa -> Pundareek -> Kshemdhanvaa -> Devaaneek -> Aheenagu -> Shastraashwa -> Chandraavalok -> Taaraapeed -> Chandragiri -> Chandra -> Shrutaayu. Shrutaayu was killed in Mahaabhaarat war and Krishn was present in MBH War.

Ikshwaaku Vansh (Lineage)-in MBH
It was in Sat Yug when Manu was the Lord of the age.
Manu's son was Prasandhi,
Prasandhi's son was Kshupaa,
Kshupaa's son was Ikshwaaku.
Ikshwaaku had a 100 sons. The eldest of them was Vinsh,
Vinsh's son was Vivinsh
Vivinsh had 15 sons - all of them very powerful. His eldest son was Khaninetra
Khaninetra's son Suvarchaa - Suarchaa was continuously doing Punya so his treasury started getting empty. When his treasury got empty the
      other king started giving him trouble, but they could not kill him because his power was in his righteousness. In the last moment he blew
      his hand with his mouth and this produced a lot of force was called Karandham also.

Suvarchaa's son was Avikshit - the first Karandham, was born at the beginning of the Tretaa Yug, he was very brave and could not be
      defeated even by immortals. He performed hundreds of Ashwamedh Yagya in which Maharshi Angiraa himself was the priest.
Avikshit's son was Marutt who surpassed even his father in qualities.

* There are two kings whose name was Nal - one was the son of Nishadh and the other was the son of Veersen. The Nal of Nal-Damayantee was the son of Veersen, and his son was Indrasen

** This seems a bit strange as there should be a gap of at least 864,900 years between Raam and Krishn according to the time scale - Sat, Tretaa, Dwaapar and Kali Yug. Treta Yug is of 1,296,000 years and Dwaapar is of 864,000 years. So, since Raam's exact date is not known, we can safely assume that He ruled not later than during the last years of Tretaa Yug - although it is not written anywhere, as it is written about Krishn that the day He went to His Dhaam, Kali Yug came on Prithvi. Thus it is sure that there is a difference of at least 864,900 years between Raam and Krishn's existence; and it seems impossible that only 15 kings ruled for 864,900 years.
