Yazid II

   Caliph of the Umayyads (qq.v.) from 720-724, remembered for his edict of 721 that ordered the destruction of all images, which he viewed as a form of idolatry. Despite the fact that this decree was issued several years before a similar one by Leo III (q.v.), there is no evidence that Yazid II's decree inspired Leo III's Iconoclasm (q.v.).
