Budvydas was born on an unknown date in Lithuania to Skalmantas and died 1295 in Lithuania of unspecified causes. Ancestors are from Lithuania.
Butvydas (or Pukuveras) (Belarusian: Будзівід; also known as Боудивидъ, Liutauras, Pukuwer or Pucuwerus) (died 1295) was the Grand Duke of Lithuania from 1292 to 1295. His influence was strong during his brother Butegeidis' reign. This led some historians to believe, that they were co-rulers, much like the grandsons Algirdas and Kęstutis. During his short reign Butvydas tried to defend the duchy against the Teutonic Knights; he also attacked Masovia, an ally of the knights. He was a direct ancestor of the Gediminids.
