    was a soldier and Byzantine Emperor who ruled from 582-602. He was one of the most important rulers of the early 'Byzantine' era, whose reign was troubled by almost unending wars on all frontiers. Maurice had to continue the war against Persia. In 586, his troops defeated the Persians at Dara. Despite serious mutiny in 588, they managed to stand up to the Persians for two more years, until Prince Khosrau II and Persian commander-in-chief Bahram Chobin in 590 overthrew King Hormizd IV.

Although the Senate advised against it with one voice, Maurice lent an army of 35,000 men for Khosrau II to regain his throne, and in 591 the combined Roman-Persian army under generals Narses and John ...

  • Dark Ages - The Plague of Justinian

    By the middle of the 6th century, the Emperor Justinian had spread his Byzantine Empire around the rim of the Mediterranean and throughout Europe, laying the groundwork for what he hoped would be a long-lived dynasty. His dreams were shattered when disease-bearing mice from lower Egypt reached the harbor town of Pelusium in AD 540. From there, the devastating disease spread to Alexandria and, by ship, to Constantinople, Justinian's capital, before surging throughout his empire. By the time Justinian's plague had run its course in AD 590, it had killed as many as 100 million people -- half the population of Europe -- brought trade to a near halt, destroyed an empire and, perhaps, brought on the Dark Ages. Most historians consider the reign of Justinian (527-565) as marking a signif...

Maurice finally brought the war to a successful conclusion . After his victory on the eastern frontier, Maurice was free to focus on the Balkans. The Slavs, having pillaged the Byzantine Balkan provinces for decades, probably began settling the land from the 580s on. The Avars took the strategically important fort of Sirmium in 582, using it as a base of operations against several poorly defended forts alongside the Danube. In 584 the Slavs threatened the capital and in 586 Avars besieged Thessalonica, while Slavs went as far as the Peloponnese. In 591 Maurice launched several campaigns against Slavs and Avars - with good prospect of turning the tide. In 592 his troops retook Singidunum from the Avars. His commander-in-chief Priscus defeated Slavs.

Romania has a unique status among the Byzantine nations for being a Latin and an orthodox people. Romanians has originated from Thracians and Romans. From the end of the sixth century B.C. the native Thracian origin were called Getae / Dacii (Dacians). The movie explores the Romanian history from the Roman republic through the transformation of Rome to Empire and the establishment of Constantinople as the new center of Roman- Greek Byzantine sphere of commonwealth that included the nations between the Euphrates; the Nile and the Danube. Dacia had long been in Rome's political and cultural sphere of influence; it was annexed among the imperial provinces. The empire followed an organized, official colonization policy, granting land even to those who were not Roman citizens & founding cities, The official protective policy, the massive infusion of Roman settlers, and the integration of the Dacians into a higher civilization through Romanization transformed the new province from the very first into a thriving economic region Toward the middle of the thirteenth century voivodates dependent on Hungary began to form, but evidence shows that they soon sought independence from the Hungarian crown. Three voivodates were established in the future Wallachia in 1247, in accordance with the Diploma granted the Knights Hospitalers by Bela IV The unification of these realms was probably hastened by the arrival of Romanians from beyond the mountains that had fled the imposition of Catholicism Moldavia and Wallachia became principalities in the fourteenth century by rebelling against their suzerain, the king of Hungary. The dispute with Hungary was both political and religious From the time that Moldavia and Wallachia were founded, the princes had adopted the attitude of crusaders defending the threatened borders of Europe. The Romanians considered themselves a bastion of Christianity, a barrier to the foe from the south who threatened to destroy Europe. The crusader spirit can be seen as early as Vladislav I of Wallachia, the first voivode to come into direct military conflict with the Turks (1371). Throughout the fourteenth to early eighteenth centuries, Moldavia and Wallachia also received a steady flow of refugees from other countries, mostly from the Balkans: Bulgaria, Serbia, and Greece in particular as the Christian states south of the Danube fell to the Ottoman empire.

By the middle of the 6th century, the Emperor Justinian had spread his Byzantine Empire around the rim of the Mediterranean and throughout Europe, laying the groundwork for what he hoped would be a long-lived dynasty. His dreams were shattered when disease-bearing mice from lower Egypt reached the harbor town of Pelusium in AD 540. From there, the devastating disease spread to Alexandria and, by ship, to Constantinople, Justinian's capital, before surging throughout his empire. By the time Justinian's plague had run its course in AD 590, it had killed as many as 100 million people -- half the population of Europe -- brought trade to a near halt, destroyed an empire and, perhaps, brought on the Dark Ages. Most historians consider the reign of Justinian (527-565) as marking a significant break with the Roman past. This is difficult to support—Justinian not only considered himself the emperor of all of Rome, including the territories occupied by the Goths, but also spoke Latin as his primary language. After the fall of Rome, the Byzantine emperors never gave over the idea of reconquering Rome. They did, however, take a lesson from the fall of Rome and all throughout the fifth century, the Byzantine emperors wrought a series of administrative and financial reforms. They produced the single most extensive corpus of Roman law in 425 and reformed taxation dramatically. Most importantly, however, they did not entrust their military to German generals—this had been the downfall of the Latin portion of the empire. They could not, however, maintain a powerful military—the loss of territory in the west had dramatically shrunk their financial resources. Justinian was perhaps the last emperor that seriously entertained notions of reconquering the west—the institution of the western emperor fell permanently vacant in 476 and the Byzantine emperors claimed as theirs. His expeditions against Italy, however, failed. Although he conquered North Africa and retook Italy from the Ostrogoths, this Gothic War drained the Byzantine Empire of much-needed resources. Most importantly, the Gothic War devestated Italy economically. The economic destruction of Italy was so total that it destroyed Italian urban culture for centuries. The great cities of Rome and her allies would be abandoned as Italy would fall into a long period of backwardness. The impoverishment of Italy and the drain on Byzantium made it impossible for the Byzantines to hold Italy—only three years after the death of Justinian, the Italian territories fell into the hands of another Germanic tribe, the "Long Beards," or Langobardi (Lombards).

In 1469 Grand Prince Ivan III the Great of Russia married Sophia Palaiologina, a niece of the last Byzantine emperor Constantine XI. Upon this, Ivan adopted the concept of Moscow as the Third Rome, the heir to Rome and Constantinople (the Second Rome) as capitals of the true Christian faith. Since then, Russia uses the Byzantine Double headed eagle as its coat of arms.
