The Ardavai Exatai was the second dynasty of the Satar, a powerful nomadic culture who invaded the known world and conquered the Sesh Valley. The older Exatai of the Satar had fallen in the War of the Crimson Elephant, and its heartlands came under the domination of the Moti and Seshweay, but the Accan Macrinus accepted the acclamation of the defeated Satar armies and led his forces to triumph over the depleted allies, reclaiming the Sesh and founding a new Exatai at Magha, the Ardavai. This state would endure for a surprisingly long time before its centuries-long struggle with the Holy Moti Empire ended in the War of the Three Gods and its destruction.

It was succeeded by the Karapeshai Exatai.
