Krishna had 16,108 as claimed by Srimad Bhagavatam. There is a beautiful story behind 16.108 wives of Krishna. Actually, Demon Narakasura captured 16,108 women and Shri Krishna came to save all these women from the demon. Krishna defected Narakasura and saved all the 16,108 women. But the parents and husband of all women denied them to accept because they all become impure in the company of Narakasura. Then all 16,108 women appealed Krishna to accept them otherwise they will commit suicide. Then Shri Krishna accepted all women as his wife.
