The Early Khazars and Turks in the Byzantium-Persian Wars of Late 6th and Early 7th Centuries

Cover Page


The article is devoted to the political and ethnic history of the Early Khazars and Göktürks in the Ciscaucasia and the problem of balance of forces in this region during the Byzantium-Persian Wars of late 6th and early 7th centuries. In the author's opinion based mainly on Arabic and Byzantine sources, the Western Turkic Khaganate was the main ally of the Byzantine Empire in these wars, and the Khazars remained a part of this Khaganate until at least 630.
