[HUNA602] Huna IV (son of [BAB2591] Crown Prince Nathan, see BABYLONIAN EXILARCHS - SECOND DYNASTY), 24th Exilarch (415-442).

[HUNA611] Mar-Zutra I the pious, 25th Exilarch (442-56). He was executed by Shah Yazdagird II (438-57) see PERSIA).

[HUNA621] Kahane/Kahana II, 26th Exilarch (455-465), retained hope of restoring the Judaic Nation, yet aware that his nation was gradually slipping away from the monarchy-in-exile, Zionism, and gradually losing any loyalty to their religion, Judaism, or the "Promised Land". To counter this, the Exilarch placed great emphasis on the rabbinic academies, and the rabbis began passing judgments on all Jews everywhere.

[HUNA631] Huna VI, 29th Exilarch (484-508), was installed in office after the persecutions had abated and there had been a change in the political climate; moved seat-of-government to Ctesiphon; obtained from the Persian Shah Balash the right for the Jews to bear arms to protect themselves.

[HUNA642] Hava/Havah (only child & daughter & heiress of Huna) married [BAB2631] Haninai (see BABYLONIAN EXILARCHS - SECOND DYNASTY).
