582 - 602 AD EF Maurice Tiberius Roman Byzantine Empire Gold Solidus Sear 477. A prominent general in his youth, Maurice fought with success against the Sassanid Persians. Once emperor, he brought the war with Persia to a victorious conclusion. Maurice also campaigned extensively in the Balkans against the Avars - pushing them back across the Danube by 599.

He also conducted campaigns across the Danube, the first emperor to do so in over two hundred years. In the west, Maurice established two large semi-autonomous provinces called exarchates, ruled by exarchs, viceroys, of the emperor. In 602, a dissatisfied general Phocas usurped the throne, having Maurice and his six sons executed.

This event would prove cataclysmic for the empire, sparking a devastating war with Persia that would leave both empires helpless in the wake of the Muslim invasions. Maurice stands out as one of the last emperors whose empire still bore a strong resemblance to the Roman Empire of previous centuries.
