Why bhishma took pratigya ?

Report as

Bhishma took the bhishana pratigya so that Shantanu, his father, could marry a fisherwoman named Satyavati. This vow essentially forced him to remain celibate during his lifetime serve whoever sat on his father's throne. Bhishma was originally named Devavratha.
