Why was Shanta adopted in Ramayana?


King Dasharatha and his first wife Kausalya had a daughter - Shanta - before Ram and his brothers were BORN.
Kausalya's elder sister Vershini was married to the King of Angadesh - Raja Rompad - but the couple weren't blessed with a child.
So Vershini once joked around asking for a child, to which Dasharatha promised she could adopt his daughter Shanta.
As the promise had to be kept, Shanta was adopted by Raja Rompad and Vershini, and grew up as the princess of Angadesh.
