Kuvrat

   Khan of the Onogor Bulgars (qq.v.) who rebelled against the Avars (q.v.) ca. 635 with the support of Herakleios (q.v.). In 619 Kuvrat visited Constantinople (q.v.), was baptized a Christian, and awarded the title of patrikios (q.v.). The timing of the revolt was perhaps influenced by the defeats that Herakleios inflicted on the Avars and Persians (qq.v.) between 626-630. However, future emperors lived to regret Herakleios's support of this revolt, for under Kuvrat's son Asparuch (q.v.) a Bulgarian state was established in Byzantine territory.
