The history of the Armenian people was widely covered on various Internet resources. That fact is quite noteworthy, especially given the aggressiveness of Armenians’ newly-born neighbors with a donated statehood called Azerbaijan, who have been trying to show and prove their non-existent identity and relation to the territory they inhabited for the past hundred years.
Both Azerbaijan and Turkey have been pursuing a policy of total falsification of history for a long time, but the most turbulent period of the Turkish policy is oddly related to Bolshevik Russia and the USSR, from the government of which the Turks received and continue to receive assistance, sometimes indirect, but mostly direct.
The process of falsifying the history of Armenia is not a new thing. We have known cases of falsification of Armenians’ history since the times of Rome, especially during the reign of Tigran II the Great.
At least two outrageous cases of Roman falsification have reached us. The first case is connected with one of the sons of Tigran the Great. It is known that the eldest son of Tigran Zareh (or Zariadres) rebelled against his father and got the support of Rome to take away the throne of the King of the Kings, for which he was executed.
This is refuted by the coins of that time on which the eldest son of Tigran the Great was inscribed accompanied by the inscription “King of the Kings Zareh”. But the story about the second son (whose name is not known) taken from Greco-Roman sources looks at least ridiculous. According to Greco-Roman sources, the second son also rebelled against his father.
During one of his walks, Tigran the Great fell from his horse, and his head diadem rolled into a ravine. The son rushed to search for the royal diadem. Having found it, he put it on his head, for which he was executed on the spot.
The same source also looks ridiculous for its information on the battle of Tigranakert. The chronicles have written some absurd data on the results of losses of the battle.
For example, according to them, the Armenians lost 150,000 soldiers in the Battle of Tigranakert and the Romans only five. As for their shameful defeat at Aratsani, the Greco-Roman sources justify it by the fact that the Roman soldiers missed their native land so much that they turned back and left the battlefield.
Does that mean that the falsification of the Armenian history is at least 2000 years old? The main problem is that this period, as well as many other periods in the history of Armenia, has been poorly studied mainly because of the scarcity of information.
However, all the pathetic attempts in the matter of falsification and lies are in vain since modern science and genetics make it possible to unerringly reconstruct the events of the most remote times of the history of mankind.
The below video (in Armenian) is on the origins of the Armenians.
