Historical background


SASANIAN - SASANIAN KINGDOM - KHOSROW II

(590-628)

Chosroes II (Khusro) is the grandson of Chosroes I (531-579) and the enemy of Justinian I (527-565). Successor of his father Hormizd IV (579-590), he was the last great Sassanid king. Allied with Maurice Tiberius (582-602) and learning of the latter's assassination, he invaded the Byzantine Empire but the Sassanid kingdom succumbed under the combined blows of the Byzantines who won a great victory in 628, the Avars and especially the Muslims. Omar (634-644), Commander of the Faithful, takes Ctesiphon in 636 and Jerusalem two years later. The last Sasanian king was overthrown in 651.
