Constantine II of Constantinople

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Constantine II was the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople from 754 to 766. He was deposed and jailed after the discovery of Constantine Podopagouros' plot against Emperor Constantine V in June 766, in which the patriarch was later implicated. In autumn 767, he was paraded through the Hippodrome of Constantinople, and finally beheaded.
