Sadyattes, son of Ardys II, of the house of the Mermnadae was King of Lydia from 624 BC to 619 BC. He was succeeded by his brother Alyattes II.

Sadyattes began a twelve-year war with the Ionian Greek maritime city of Miletus that was continued by his brother Alyattes II.[1] He appears to have married a princess of Mysia, and thus brought this country under Lydian sway, but their children were evinced from the throne by Alyattes.
