The House of Ispahbudhan or the House of Aspahbadh was one of the seven Parthian clans of the Sasanian Empire. Like the Sasanians, they claimed descent from the Achaemenid dynasty.[1] They also claimed descent from the legendary Kayanid figure Isfandiyar,[2] who was the son of Vishtaspa, who according to Zoroastrian sources was one of Zoroaster's early followers.[3]
