Constantine II was the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople from 754 to 766. He was deposed and jailed after the discovery of Constantine Podopagouros' plot against Emperor Constantine V in June 766, in which the patriarch was later implicated. In autumn 767, he was paraded through the Hippodrome of Constantinople, and finally beheaded.
