Events[edit]

By place[edit]

Byzantine Empire[edit]

  • October 4Heraclius arrives with a fleet from Africa at Constantinople. Assisted by an uprising in the capital, he overthrows emperor Phocas, who is killed by the mob. Heraclius gains the throne with help from his father Heraclius the Elder. His first major act is to change the official language of the East Roman Empire from Latin to Greek (already the language of the vast majority of the population). Because of this, after AD 610 the Empire is customarily referred to as the Byzantine Empire (the term Byzantine is a modern term invented by historians in the 18th century; the people of the Empire itself always referred to themselves as "Ρωμιούς" – in English, Romious).
