Historical background

Maurice Tiberius


Maurice succeeded his stepfather Tiberius II. After great victories over the Sassanids, he wiped many setbacks in the Balkans and could not prevent the installation of Slavs and Avars. A military plot overthrew 602. He was killed while trying to flee from Chosroes II.
