|Sasanian| |Empire|, |Sasanian| |Empire,| |Hormizd| |IV,| |579| |-| |590| |A.D.||drachm|
Hormizd IV (also spelled Hormozd IV, Hormadz IV, or Ohrmazd IV) was noted for religious tolerance, declining appeals by the Zoroastrian priesthood to persecute Christians. He slaughtered the high aristocracy and Zoroastrian priesthood, and elevated the landed gentry. He faced constant warfare including an indecisive war with the Byzantine Empire begun under his father. His general Bahram Chobin defeated the Turkic Khaganate. Instead of rewarding him, Hormizd IV had him disgraced and dismissed. Bahram rebelled. Another faction led by his brothers-in-law deposed, blinded, and later killed Hormizd IV. His son Khosrow II was made the new shah.

Huizong, one of the most famous Song Dynasty emperors, spent most of his life surrounded by luxury, sophistication, and art, but ended in tragedy. An artist, Huizong neglected the army, and Song China became increasingly weak. On Jan 18, 1126, after the forces of the Jin had crossed the Yellow River and came in sight of the Song capital, Kaifeng, Huizong abdicated in favor of his son Emperor Qinzong. The Jin entered Kaifeng on Jan 9, 1127, and many days of looting, rapes, and massacre followed. Huizong and Qinzong were captured and demoted to commoner. Huizong was deported to northern Manchuria, where he spent the last eight years of his life as a captive.Huizong
