Budvydas was born 9999 in Lithuania to Skalmantas and died 1296 Lithuania of unspecified causes.

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 State of the Teutonic Order; he also attacked Mazovia, an ally of the knights. He was a direct ancestor of the Gediminids.
