Aspad Gushnasp, known as Gousdanaspa in Byzantine sources, was a Iranian aristocrat from Firuzabad, who led the supporters of Kavadh II against his father, king Khosrau II. Khosrau was captured and imprisoned in the house of Mehr-Sepand, another Persian who supported Kavadh II. Kavadh then ordered Aspad to lead the charge of accusations against the deposed king. Khosrau, however, rejected all accusations one by one. Aspad was probably the same person, who was the adopted brother of Kavadh II mentioned by Theophanes, who led the peace negotiations with the emperor Heraclius.
