He was the charioteer of great archer, Arjuna in the Mahabharat war.  In his early life, he killed Kansa.  His brother was Balrama and he is also believed to be a avatar of Lord Vishnu by some texts.

In the Puranic texts, he is mentioned as one of the ten avatars of Vishnu, usually as the ninth one. Siddhartha was born in a royal Hindu Kshatriya family. Gautama was famously seated under a pipal tree—now known as the Bodhi tree—in Bodh Gaya, India, when he vowed never to arise until he had found the truth. His companions believed that he had abandoned his search and become undisciplined, left. After a reputed 49 days of meditation, at the age of 35, he is said to have attained enlightenment.

    This is to the mythology what a pail of water is to the ocean.

    Mythology is history clouded and obscured by time. Before it was myth, it was legend. Before it was legend, it was history. Before it was history, it was news.

    The mythology has been primarily lost. The genealogies in the last Upanishad(I believe) was the key to the mythological story.

    Ironically, the very same mythological story is the basis for such classic tales as King Arthur, Robin Hood, Lord of the Rings, Carnivale, Star Wars, the Jewish mythology of the twelve tribes and the bible.

    The bible was taken from the Jewish tenets, which were taken from the Vedas of Advaita Vedanta.

    The most comprehensive explanation of the basis of the mythology is actually found online as the "mythology of Carnivale". The creator of the series has not revealed anything more than an obtuse statement regarding how he came up with the story.

    This mythology is one of the reasons that Shiva is sometimes known by the moniker of " Rudra".

    They are in fact two different individuals but are direct counterparts in the mythology. This is directly correlated to the story of Star wars, in the fact that darth vadar is the direct counterpart to Obie won kanobe. They are the yin to the yang. Light to dark.

    Shiva is not Rudra. They are opposites.
