Butvydas or Pukuveras (Belarusian: Будзівід (Budzivid); also known as Боудивидъ, Liutauras, Пукувер (Pukuvier) Pukuwer or Pucuwerus) (died 1295) was the Grand Duke of Lithuania from 1292 to 1295.[1] His influence was strong during his brother Butigeidis's reign.[1] 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.
