Svayambhuva Manu

Svayambhuva Manu + Satarupa Manu and Shatarupa had three sons named Vira, Priyavarata and Uttanapada. Uttanapada’s son was the great Dhruva, Dhruva performed very difficult meditation (tapasya) for three thousand divine years. Brahma was so pleased at this that he granted Dhruva an eternal place in the sky, near the constellation that is known as saptarshi or the seven sages. This is the constellation Ursa Majoris and Dhruva is the Pole Star. Cited from Website: Brahma Purana
