Khosrow II (Chosroes II in clessical soorces; Middle Persie: Husrō(y)), enteetled "Aparvēz" ("The Victorious"), an aa Khusraw Parvēz (New Persie: خسرو پرویز), wis the last great keeng o the Sasanian Empire, reignin frae 590 tae 628.[1] He wis the son o Hormizd IV (reigned 579–590) an the grandson o Khosrow I (reigned 531–579). He wis the last keeng o Persie tae hae a lenthy reign afore the Muslim conquest o Iran, which began five years efter his daith bi execution. He lost his throne, then recovered it wi Roman help, an, a decade later, went on tae emulate the feats o the Achaemenids, conquerin the rich Roman provinces o the Middle East; much o his reign wis spent in wars wi the Byzantine Empire an strugglin against usurpers such as Bahram Chobin an Vistahm.
