Herakleios was the son of the Exarch of North Africa of the same name. He and his father revolted against the usurper Emperor Phokas in 608, the revolt succeeding in 610. His reign is most noted for the wars against the Avars, Sasanians and, ultimately, the Caliphate. He was controversially married to his niece, Martina, and tried to intervene in the dispute between the Chalcedonians and Monophysites, leading only to the Monothelite "heresy".
