23. BAHRAM or VARANES VI. SHUBIN, a royal prince, reigned from A. D. 590 till 591.
This is the great general mentioned in the preceding article. Unable to maintain the throne against Khosrew, who was supported by the emperor Mauricius, he fled to the Turks, once his enemies, by whom he was well received and raised to the highest dignities.
It is said that he was poisoned (by the Persian king ?). Bahram was one of the greatest heroes of Persia, and his life is very interesting.
