After the death of his father King Artabanus 2, Goodarz had to fight the first five years of his reign with his brother Vardanes who had also issued coins of his own. They fought indecisive battles several times and it seems that they finally came to a peace term agreement. When Vardanes was assassinated in 47, Gotarzes proclaimed king of the whole Parthian Empire.
The Roman emperor Claudius sent an army headed by Prince Mehrdad, who crossed the Euphrates in 49, but was defeated and taken prisoner by Goodarz 2.
