Heraclius was Emperor from 610 to 641 AD. The eldest son of Heraclius the Elder, he was possibly of Armenian or Arsacid descent. He became emperor following a successful revolt against the Emperor Phocas, who he captured and executed on the spot. His reign introduced many reforms to reduce corruption from Phocas’s reign and reorganisation of the military.  Heraclius is remembered for the recovery of the True Cross from the Persians.
