|Duryodhana's wife is Bhanumathi, daughter of Bhanuman. I am not so sure of the kingdom. I am not sure whether Duryodhana had a son too. Let me check and post again.|

|Duryodhan had one son Laxman who had killed abhimanyu.Regarding Karna his wife was Vrushali,another saarthi's daughter.They had a very happy and content married life according to Mrutyunjay.they had 4 sons, and unfortunately all of them were killed by Arjun,one during Draupadi's swayamvar and the rest in mahabharat.|
He married one more lady,who was very close to Bhanumati,and Bhanumati had requested for this marriage on insistance of her friend.
I have no idea regarding Dushasan's marriage.

|Duryodhanas wife Bhanumathi and is called "satiratna" in mahabharatha.|
She shown as a model of wife who is ready to sacrifice anything for the happiness of her Husband..
This is shown during the time of marriage of Subhadra. She gets ready happily to agree for the marriage of Subhadra with Duryodhana when Balaram proposes subhadra for Duryodhana.

|Karna had several sons and the names of nine of his sons are mentioned. Of the nine, only one survived the Kurukshetra war. Vrasasena; Sudhama; Shatrunjaya; Dvipata; Sushena; Satyasea; Chitrasena; Susharma(Banasena); and Vrishakethu. |
Sudhama died in the melee that followed Draupadi’s swayamvara. Shatrunjaya and Dvipata died in the Kurukshetra war at the hands of Arjuna during the days when Drona commanded the Kaurava forces. Sushena was killed in the war by Bhima. Satyasena, Chitrasena and Susharma died at the hands of Nakula. Karna’s eldest son Vrasasena died during the last days of the war when Karna was the commanded the battle forces. Vrasasena was killed by Arjuna.
Vrishasena’s death is described in all its gruesome detail:
Vrishasena, angered at the death of Duhshasana and Chitrasena, rushed at Nakula, desiring to fight with his father's enemy. A fierce battle then ensued between those two heroes. Vrishasena managed to kill Nakula's horses and pierce him with many arrows. Descending from his chariot, Nakula took up his sword and shield, and making his way toward Vrishasena, he severed the heads of two thousand horsemen. Vrishasena, seeing Nakula coming towards him whirling that sword like a discus, shattered the sword and shield with four crescent shaped arrows. Nakula then quickly ascended Bhima's chariot. As Arjuna came near, Nakula requested him, "Please slay this sinful person." Arjuna then ordered Lord Krishna, "Proceed toward the son of Karna. I will kill him within his father's sight." Unsupported by anyone, Vrishasena challenged Arjuna releasing many different kinds of arrows. He pierced Arjuna's arm with ten arrows and Krishna also with ten. Arjuna became enraged, and exclaimed loudly to the Kaurava kings including Karna, "Today, O Karna, I will kill your son as you unfairly killed my son, Abhimanyu! Let all the warriors protect him if they can. I will kill him, and then, O fool, I will slay you; and Bhima will slay the wretched Duryodhana, whose evil policies have brought about the great battle." Having threatened Karna, Arjuna struck Vrishasena with ten arrows that weakened him. With four razor headed arrows, Arjuna cut off his bow, his two arms and his head that was adorned with beautiful earrings. Beholding Vrishasena killed, Karna wept bitter tears, and his eyes were red with rage. He then proceeded toward Arjuna challenging him to fight.
Vrishakethu was the only son of Karna that survived the horrific slaughter called Kurukshetra war. He later came under the patronage of the Pandavas. During the campaign that preceded the Ashvamedha –yaga, Vrishakethu accompanied Arjuna and participated in the battles with Sudhava and Babruvahana. During that campaign Vrishakethu married the daughter of king Yavanatha (perhaps a king of the western regions). It is said, Arjuna developed great affection for Vrishakethu, his nephew.

|This is something which I never knew ,I thought all the sons of Karna had died in the war.If one(Vrishaketu} was surviving then the question of who will rule for Pandav was not a problem at all,it should have been him only.As he was the son of the eldest brother and also the eldest surviving inthe next generation and brave as well.Then why the need for Uttara's son to be revived after the attack by bramhastra from Ashwathama.Then it only means Pandav still didnot recognise the lineage of Karna and his son.|

|Vrishaketu was smallest amongst all and His mother refused to make him King.Because she dont want any more war and blood shed. But Vrishaketu spend all his life with Krishna and Arjuna. Uttran Mahabharata describe the affection of Arjuna toward his nephew Vrishaketu. Also Vrishaketu was last person on earth to know the use of Brahama Astra, Varun Astra, Agni Astra and Vayu Astra.|
Krishna order him not to pass on his Knowledge to anyone as the age of Kalyuga was coming near, this knowledge can cause mass destruction.

|this is really wonderful place to be with ,with so many people giving such wonderful information,I am happy to be a part of it.The information given by Kamble is again new to me,but I would like to differ that Vrishaketu could not be smaller than Abhimanyu's son who was still in Utero and thats why I had commented he could have become the king as it is known to us as Uttara-SAbhimanyu's son was the last surviving Pandu clan apart from Pandav ofcourse.|

|Vrishaketu was killed by Arjun's son Babruvahan and he was not alive when pandavas left for Himalyas and Parikshit was crowned.|
And not all stories given in Mrityunjay are present in mahabharata. The story of Karna's son Sudhawan being killed by Arjun in Draupadi's swayamvara is not given in any version of Mahabharata. And as per Drona Parva of Mahabharata, Shatrunjay and Vipath were foster brothers of Karna not his sons.
