Historical background


Sassanids - UNITED Sassanid - I KAVAD

(488-496 and 498-531)

Kavad I is the son of Firuz (Peroz I). He spent two years in prisoner Huns Hephtalites because his father could not pay the ransom after his capture. Peroz was eventually killed by them. Brother Peroz, Valkash succeeded him for four years before being dethroned by his nephew and blinded in 488. Kavad first promotes the movement of Mazdak who wants to reform the Iranian society. Kavad is expelled in 496 and two years remains locked in the "Castle Oblivion" before escaping. With the help of the Huns, he took over power to his brother Zamap (496-498) who had taken his place. During his second reign, he finished in 529 by eliminating mazdékites who were massacred. Khusrau (Chosroes) his son, succeeded him.
