About Kavadh II, king of the Sasanian Empire

Kavadh II (Shiroe, or Siroes), twenty-third Sassanid King of Persia, son of Khosrau II (590–628), was raised to the throne in opposition to his father in February 628, after the great victories of the Emperor Heraclius (610–641). He put his father and eighteen brothers to death, began negotiations with Heraclius, but died after a reign of a few months.

Kavadh II was the son of Khosrau II, the king of the Sasanian Empire, and Maria, daughter of Maurice, the emperor of the Byzantine Empire. Kavadh was later imprisoned by his father who wanted to ensure his succession to his favorite son Mardanshah, the son of his favorite wife, Shirin. His father's reputation had been ruined during the last phase of the Byzantine–Sasanian War of 602–628.
