Historical background


Maurice Tiberius

(13/08/582-22/11/602)

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.
