Name:  Phocas
Brief biography:  Byzantine Emperor 602-610.
Nationality:  Byzantine
Occupation:  Emperor
Date of birth:  c.547
Period of rule:  602-610
Date of death:  610
Place of death:  Istanbul

Phocas was a Byzantine soldier who became Emperor after the army revolted against Maurice. The execution of Maurice and his family gave the Sassanian Emperor Khusrau II an excuse for war, which he took. Apart from the war with the Persians, Phocas's reign was marked by internal revolts, most of which were violently ended. In 608, the Exarch fo North Africa, Herakleios, sent his son, also called Herakleios, and nephew, Niketas, to depose Phocas in favour of the younger Herakleios. The Herakleian revolt was succesful in 610, and Phocas was executed. The subsequent success of Herakleios and his descendants at holding onto the throne for nearly a century probably contributed to Phocas's poor reputation being exaggerated.
