Heraklonas, 4 July 638 - October 641 A.D.
Joint rule as junior emperor with Heraclius (his father) and Heraclius Constantine (his half-brother), 4 July 638 - 11 January 641 A.D.
|In 638, Heraclius created a buffer zone or no man's land in the heartland of Asia Minor. In the mountainous terrain of Anatolia, the Byzantine forces used defensive guerrilla warfare, known as "shadowing warfare." They avoided battle with major Muslim invasions and instead attacked raiding parties on their return when laden with booty, captured livestock or prisoners.|
