The Kauravas

To quote from Mahabharata, Sambava Parva, Section CXV

And during the time when Gandhari was in a state of advanced pregnancy, there was a maid servant of the Vaisya class who used to attend on Dhritarashtra. During that year, O king, was begotten upon her by the illustrious Dhritarashtra a son endued with great intelligence who was afterwards named Yuyutsu. And because he was begotten by a Kshatriya upon a Vaisya woman, he was subject to the constant taunts of the kauravas.

“Thus were born unto the wise Dhritarashtra
a hundred sons who were all heroes and mighty chariot-fighters, and
a daughter over and above the hundred, and
another son Yuyutsu of great energy and prowess begotten upon a Vaisya woman.'”
