The Paduspanids or Baduspanids (Persian: پادوسبانیان) were a local dynasty of Tabaristan which ruled over Royan, Nur and Rostamdar. The dynasty was established in 665,[1] and ended in 1598 when the Safavids invaded their domains.[2]


The founder of the Paduspanid dynasty was Paduspan I, (also known by the Arabicized form Baduspan), who was the son of Gil Gavbara,[2] the founder of the Dabuyid dynasty. Thus making the Paduspanids of Sasanian descent like the Dabuyids.
