  • Notes 
    • Heraclonas; born 615; died 641?
      Also spelled Heracleonas Byzantine emperor for a brief period in 641 w ho was accused, probably falsely, of complicity in the death of his ha lf brother, Constantine III.
      Heraclonas was the son of the Byzantine emperor Heraclius and his seco nd wife, Martina. In 638, through his mother's influence, he obtaine d the title of augustus, and, after Heraclius' death, was proclaimed j oint emperor with his half brother, Constantine III. The premature dea th of Constantine in May 641 left him sole ruler.
      Although Constantine probably died of tuberculosis, rumours that he ha d been poisoned on the orders of Martina and Heraclonas led to a revol t and to the mutilation and banishment to Rhodes of the supposed offen ders in September 641. Nothing is known of Heraclonas following that e vent.
