After having prevailed with the help of Emperor Maurice in a civil war against the usurper Bahrām Čōbin, in 591 ce, the king attacked the Roman Empire after the fall of Maurice in 602. By 622, the Persians had conquered Syria and Egypt, but after the failure of the siege of Constantinople in 626, Chosroes, whose empire was attacked in the east by the Turks, was overthrown by dissatisfied aristocrats in 628. After his death, civil wars broke out that decisively weakened the Sasanian Empire in the wake of the Islamic conquests.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2020-05-28T09:50:19Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2020-04-30</dcterms:issued> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2020-05-28T09:50:19Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
