Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Khosrov III the Small (Armenian:, Khosrov III Kotak; c. 330-339 AD) was the Arshakuni king Armenia. He was the son and successor of King Tiridates III and a member of the Arshakuni Dynasty. He was a man of short stature, thus his name. He founded a hunting ground (which was named after him) and the city of Dvin, which later became the Armenian capital.During his reign, two generals, Vache Mamikonian and Vahan Amatuni, distinguished themselves for their valor in battle, often coming to help the king. During these years, pro-Sassanid and anti-Mamikonian sentiment grew in Armenia and so did anti-Roman sentiment. Pro-Sassanid groups gained popularity so much so that they were successful in assassinating Catholicos St. Aristaces I, son of Gregory the Illuminator.show more
