Kavadh I (Middle Persian: kw?t' Kawad, Persian: ?????? Qobad) (c. 473[1] – September 13, 531[2]) was the Sasanian king of Persia from 488 to 531. A son of Peroz I (457–484), he was crowned by the nobles in place of his deposed and blinded uncle Balash (484–488).

His reign saw the uprising of Vakhtang I of Iberia, as well as the Anastasian War and the Iberian War against the Sasanians' archrival, the neighboring Byzantines. During Kavadh's reign, massive fortification activities were conducted in the Caucasus, including Derbent.
