Kavad

   King of Persia (q.v.) from 488-531, and father of the greatest of all Sassanian kings, Chosroes I (qq.v.). Overthrown in 496, he was reinstated in 499 with the aid of the Ephthalites (q.v.). His support of Mazdak (q.v.) can also be viewed as a means to consolidate his power. He went to war with Anastasios I (q.v.) from 502-507 over the emperor's (q.v.) refusal to pay for the defense of the Caspian Gates (q.v.), and again from 527-531 due to rivalry over Iberia and Lazica (qq.v.).
