* Prince Andriantsimitoviaminandriana
* Prince Andriantsimitovizafinitrimo, Prince (Printsy) of Ambatomanoina
Andriambelomasina was also the grandfather of the great Merina King,
Andrianampoinimerina. Feeling that the part of the Merina Kingdomhe was ruling was menaced, Andriambelomasina had the strategical idea to marry his daughter Ranavalonanadriambelomasinato the King Andriamiaramanjakaof Ikaloyand Anjafy, a Zafimamy/ AlahamadintanyKingdom in the North of Ambohimanga border. This historical wedding gave birth to the greatest King in Madagascar history, Andrianampoinimerina, who unified the Merina Kingdom during his reign, and extended it to the whole highlands of Madagascar. The resulting conquests of Andrianampoinimerina set up the basis of the unification of all the Madagascar clan Kingdoms, continued by Andrianampoinimerina's son, King Radama I(1810-1831), and was almost realized at the end of the 19th century.
