Maharaj Sagar, Shri Ram's ancestor whose sons accused Maharishi Kapil of stealing their Ashwamedh horse and for whose redemption Ganga Maa came to the earth? Keshni was his first wife.
True, that the only Keshni I've ever read of. Sometimes her name is spelt 'Kesini'. She is the daughter of the King of Vidarbha, wife of Sagara and mother of Asamanja.
^^ The show actually does tell us she's Jarasandh's daughter, and they even have her call him to Mathura to give Kans pep-talks as and when necessary (like during the Durvasa visit, remember). And after Kans's death she does fulfill the role that Asti and Prapti did in the sources which mention them, i.e. instigating Jarasandh to fight Krishna for her revenge. There is a slim chance of either of the girls being named Keshni in some other source, because one of the Puraans (I don't remember whether its Bhaagvatam or the Padma Puraan, will have to check) call Kaikasi (Ravan's mom) Keshni in their summaries of Ram Avtaar.
