But Amba?

Amba, from the beginning, wanted to marry the king of Salwa. She requested Bhishma to send her to that prince. He accordingly agreed and sent her away. But the Salwa king refused to marry her as she had been taken away after victory in a battle.

Amba came back to Bhishma and entreated him to marry her. An avowed celebrate, he did not wish to depart from that state of life.

Amba knew that Bhishma highly respected Parashurama and would not say 'no' to the latter's words. So she went to him and narrated her story. Parashurama thereupon accompanied her to see Bhishma and said: 'Bhishma, marry this girl.'

'I cannot do so. If I do, it would be breaking my vow.'

Parashurama and Bhishma thereupon engaged themselves in a battle and the fighting went on for many days. Both were valiant and could not be vanquished. Ultimately, they stopped fighting and returned to their places. Amba, a dejected damsel, threw herself into fire and died. Later she was reborn as Shikhandi and took revenge on Bhishma.
