The Kidarites (Chinese: 寄多羅 Jiduolo) were a dynasty of the "Ki" clan named after their ruler Kidara. They were part of the complex of tribes known collectively as Xionites or "Hunas". Referred to as the "Red Huns", they established the first of four major "Hunic" states in Southern Asia, the next ones being in chronological order: the Hephthalites, the Alchon, and the Nezak.

In 360-370 CE, they established the Kidarite kingdom in the eastern regions of the Sasanian Empire, when they replaced the Kushano-Sasanians in Bactria.Thereafter the Sasanian Empire roughly stopped at Merv.
