Zenobia, Queen of Armenia

Zenobia of Armenia was a royal Iberian princess of the Pharnavazid dynasty who was a Queen of Armenia from 51 to 53 and 54 to 55 during her husband’s reign, King Rhadamistus.

Zenobia’s father Mithridates reigned in Armenia until her husband, Mithridates’ nephew, and son-in-law Rhadamistus usurped the Armenian throne through the sudden invasion. Her husband destroyed her entire family.

After the execution of her entire family, Rhadamistus became king in 51 and she became his queen. Armenians revolted soon after and, with the Parthian support of prince Tiridates I, forced both to flee back to Iberia.
