In 614 the Sassanian Khosrau II of Persia removed it as a trophy, when he captured Jerusalem.
Thirteen years later, in 628, the Emperor of the East Heraclius defeated Khosrau ("Chosroes") and retook the relic, which he at first placed in Constantinople and later, took back to Jerusalem.
Around 1009, Christians in Jerusalem hid the cross and it remained hidden until it was rediscovered, in 1099, at a moment when it was sorely needed, during the First Crusade.
