About Haninai al-Nehar Peḳkod ben Bustanai bar Adai, Exilarch & Gaon of Sura
The descendants of Haninai appear to occupy the gaonate of Sura for several generations and may also be ancestors of the Maharal of Prague.
Prince Haninai's father, Bustanai (d. 660/5), was the first Jewish Exilarch to be recognized by Arab rule. His father's birth and much of his life is surrounded by legend. His father's second wife was the daughter of King Shahrijar III of Persia.
King Shahrijar's mother was Miriam, the daughter of the Byzantine Emperor Maurice.
The Bahai religious leader Bahá'u'lláh's ancestry can be traced back to Haninai's father, Shahrijar Yazadagird III of Parthia
