Principality of Khachen

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Principality of Khachen (Armenian: Խաչենի իշխանություն) was a medieval Armenian[1][2][3] principality, in part of historical Artsakh (present-day Nagorno-Karabakh).[4] The regions of Artsakh and Utik were provinces of the Kingdom of Armenia in Antiquity. From the twelfth century the Khachen principality dominated the region. The Byzantine emperor Constantine VII addressed his letters to the prince of Khachen with the inscription "To Prince of Khachen, Armenia."[5] Today the region is recognised to be part of Azerbaijan.
