Amba pleaded with Salva, whom she considered her true love, to accept her. But Salva reiterated Kshatriya dharma and refused to accept her.

She appealed to various kings to defeat Bhishma and do her justice, but all of them refused. Finally, she went into the forest. Finally, she went into the forest.
