The Bavandi dynasty (in Mazandarani: Bävendiyun) was an Iranian dynasty that began in the early 7th century. Its rulers reigned for about 700 years over Tabaristan, on the southern shore of the Caspian Sea. The name of the dynasty comes from Bäv, who ruled from 665 to 680. He was a grandson of Kavadh I, the Sassanid emperor. The Bavandis were originally Zoroastrian, but they later converted to Islam.
