Bustanai, Ben-Chaninai

(c. 618-70)
   Babylonian exilarch. His marriage to a captive Persian princess had halakhic implications in later gaonic literature, where the descendants of his Jewish wives wished to assert their precedence over those of a Persian wife. It was later acknowledged that Bustanai had first freed her and converted her to Judaism.
