  Heraclonas
Heraclonas, Byzantine emperor (February—September 641), was the son of Heraclius and Martina.
The premature death of Constantine, in May 641, left Heraclonas sole ruler.
This was the first time a reigning emperor had been subjected to mutilation, which was a practise probably borrowed from the Persians; in this case, Martina's tongue was cut out, and Heraclius' nose was cut off.

 Roman Emperors DIR Heraclonas
The emperor Heraclonas, because of public pressure after the death of Heraclius Constantine, crowned his nephew Constans as co-emperor in September of 641, at the age of 11.
Soon afterwards, Heraclonas was deposed and Constans ruled as sole emperor.
In accordance with a treaty negotiated under Heraclonas' reign, the Byzantines evacuated Alexandria in September of 642.

 Roman Emperors DIR Heraclonas
Heraclonas (Heraclius II) was born in Constantinople in 626 to the emperor Heraclius and his second wife Martina.
Heraclius Constantine, age 28, was the only son of Heraclius' first marriage to Eudokia (Fabia) while Heraclonas, age 15, was the eldest son of Martina, Heraclius' niece and second wife.
Even though Heraclonas was co-emperor, his young age and inexperience allowed Martina to control him totally and thus rule the state through Heraclonas.

 Coins of the Byzantine Empire
Grandson of Heraclius, born in Constantinople on 7th November, 630, Constans was crowned co-emperor by his uncle, the teenaged Heraclonas shortly before his eleventh birthday.
When Heraclonas and his regent Martina were deposed that same winter, the child Constantine, universally called Constans, became sole emperor.
He must have grown quickly, for as emperor he gained the nickname Pogonatos due to the thickness of his beard and appears to have been acting independently as ruler from his mid-teens.

 Constantine III of Byzantium
He was also the older half-brother of Heraclonas, who was the son of Heraclius' second wife Martina.
Constantine became emperor when Heraclius died in 641, and during his reign the Arabs conquered Egypt.
He died of tuberculosis after only four months, leaving Heraclonas sole emperor; it was rumoured, however, that Martina had him poisoned, which led to instability during Heraclonas' reign.

 Birth of Great Bulgaria, Khan Kubrat
Running the risk of worsening relations with Byzantium, upon the death of the emperor in 642 AD, khan Kubrat supported his widow Martina and their children to whom he had been strongly attached, in their battle for the emperor's throne.
The decisive support of khan Kubrat to Martina, widow of his friend, the emperor of the East Roman Empire Heraclius, and her son Heraclonas, is described in the Chronicle of John, Bishop of Nikiou.
This Chronicle, written by the Bishop of Nikiou in Greek in VII century, is translated in Arabic and subsequently in Ethiopian in 1601.

In the aftermath, Muslim armies reconquered Syria and slowly began to tighten the noose on Constantinople.
He died within four months of tuberculosis, but rumors spread that he was poisoned by Martina, the mother of Heraclonas, who sought to rule through her adolescent son.
The mother and son proved unpopular, particularly after rumors of the poisoning began to circulate, so that by September 641 Heraclonas had been deposed and exiled to Rhodes (with his mother, whose tongue was cut out) in favor of Constantine III's eleven year old son Constans II.

 The Arab Invasion of Egypt part 4
Whether he died a natural death, or whether he suffered from foul play at the hands of Martina, is uncertain: but the charge of murder was openly made by Constans against the Empress, and the suspicion of it haunts the records of the time.
When Valentine heard of the death of Constantine and of the Philagrius' disgrace which followed, he came with his army to Chalcedon, where Martina was, and demanded Philagrius' reinstatement.
It is clear too that he had won over Martina to his pusillanimous counsels, that the party of Martina was the party of peace at any price with the Muslims, and that her policy was the policy of surrender incessantly preached by Cyrus....

La muerte de Fabia debido a la epilepsia tras nacer el pequeño en 612 motivó que el emperador volviera casarse con su sobrina Martina, matrimonio que no resultó atractivo a la Iglesia y ni al pueblo.
La muerte de Heraclio provocó problemas sucesorios ya que el testamento obligaba a compartir el Imperio entre sus dos hijos Constantino III y Heraclonas, a pesar de la diferencia de edad entre ambos -el primero tenía 28 años y el segundo unos 15-.
Esta muerte motivará que Heraclonas se haga con el poder pero una revuelta generalizada provocará que el Senado entregue la soberanía a Constante II.

La prematura muerte de Constantino III en mayo de 641, probablemente por una tuberculosis, dejó a Heraclonas como único soberano del imperio.

 History of the Macedonian People from Ancient times to the Present - Part XVI, by Risto Stefov
Unfortunately, the climatic conditions were not favourable for the Pravoslavs when a violent sandstorm struck them head-on giving the Muslims, who were used to this kind of weather, battle advantage.
The stressful situation was exhausting mentally and physically for Heraclius and caused him to fall seriously ill. Feeling that he may no longer be able to rule, Heraclius performed the ceremony of succession and appointed his two sons Constantine and Heraclonas as his successors in 638 AD.
With the succession settled, Heraclius spent the last years of his life trying to settle the debate between the monophysites and the monotheleties, centering on the nature of Christ.

His wife Martina used all her power to ensure the crowning of her son, Heraclonas, heir over Eudocia's son Constantine.
On June 4, 638 Heraclius performed the ceremony of succession choosing Heraclonas.
With the succession settled, he spent the last years of his life trying to solve the religious problems besetting the empire, the debate centering on the nature of Christ and hotly argued between two camps: the monophysites and the monothelities, but to no avail.

En 632 Heracleonas había sido nombrado Cesar; y el 4 julio del 638 se convirtió en coemperador, su hermano David fue nombrado Cesar (debía ser hermano menor de Heraclonas) y sus hermanas Augustina y Anastasia en Augustas.
Es curioso que habiendo un joven de 28 años, Constantino, con dos hijos, fuera preciso que su hermanastro Heraclonas fuera designado coemperador.
El 26 de mayo moría Constantino, quedando Heraclonas como único emperador, y de inmediato Martina empezó a eliminar a los partidarios del fallecido entre ellos a Filagrio el tesorero que fue forzado a convertirse en monje.

 Byzantine Empire 610-1095 by Sanderson Beck
After saving the empire with the military victories he personally led, Heraclius suffered miserable health as the empire shrunk from the Muslim onslaught, and he finally died in February 641.
In his will Heraclius made both 28-year-old Constantine and Martina's 15-year-old son Heraclonas Co-emperors with Martina as empress; but Constantine III died three months later, and Martina reinstated the monothelete Cyrus as Alexandria patriarch.
Heraclonas crowned Constantine III's son Co-emperor; but in September 641 the Senate deposed Martina and Heraclonas, making sure they would never rule by cutting off her tongue and his nose.
