Topic: Kavadh I of Persia


  
  Kavadh I of Persia
Kavadh I, son of Peroz, was a Sassanid king, crowned by the nobles in 488 in place of his uncle Balash, who was deposed and blinded.
Kavadh gave his support to the communistic sect founded by Mazdak[?], son of Bamdad[?], who demanded that the rich should divide their wives and their wealth with the poor.
Kavadh, however, escaped and found refuge with the Ephthalites, whose king gave him his daughter in marriage and aided him to return to Persia.

He was a younger brother of king Kavadh I and was installed on the Sassanid throne upon the deposition of the latter by members of the nobility.
Byzantine accounts of the episode (Jashua the Stylite and Procopius) mention that Kavadh was deposed because of his determination to spread a new "religion" that preached redistribution of property.
