Today in history: Verbitsa Pass, Krum, and the Byzantine emperor who lost his head.

I originally posted this article 2 years ago yesterday, on the anniversary of the Battle of Verbitsa Pass. Few people were reading my blog then, and I still think this is a pretty interesting and colorful event in Byzantine history, and as yesterday (July 26) was the 1,204th anniversary of the battle, I thought it was topical. Enjoy!
