Ancient Armenia-icon.png Ancient Armeniaball was a Caucassia kingdom, disputed between SPQR-icon.png SPQRball and Parthia-icon.png Parthiaball.

History

Ancient Armeniaball born shortly before Urartu-icon.png Urartuball died. He was then adopted by Achaemenid-icon.png Achaemenidball until becoming independent when Macedon-icon.png Macedonball defeated Achaemenid-icon.png Achaemenidball.

In first century BC he rose to his greatest power, getting his independence from Seleucids and expanding his clay stretching from modern-day Georgia to the Mediterranean Sea by defeating Seleucidball, who was in his last years already. After a few decades SPQR-icon.png SPQRball and Parthia-icon.png Parthiaball hacked him back down to size though. He was allowed to exist because both SPQR-icon.png SPQRball and Parthia-icon.png Parthiaball knew that if one of them took his clay, the other would invade them. He was good friends with both though. He disliked Sassanid-icon.png Sassanidball however, for killing his friend Parthia-icon.png Parthiaball. He Was of mighty Pagan-icon.png Pagan who followed glorious dragon-remover Vahagn and golden mother Anahit until 301, when he decided to become Christian-icon.png Christian (first country to do so), partly to piss Sassanid-icon.png Sassanidball off. He then made his own Elvish alphabet, that modern Armenia-icon.png Armeniaball still uses. Eventually, his clay was divided up between Byzantine-icon.png Byzantineball and Sassanid-icon.pngcSassanidball. He did not really die though, merely got passed from empireball to empireball for a few centuries, resurfacing in the 800's AD as Bagratid Armenia-icon.png Bagratid Armeniaball.

Had four main dynasties:

  • Orontid (570 BC - 200 BC)
  • Artaxiad (189 BC - 12 AD)
  • SPQRball Rule (12 AD - 54 AD)
  • Arsacid (54 AD - 428 AD)

Relationships

  • SPQR-icon.png SPQRball: Mostly a friend, though he is overbearing sometimes, and he wants my clay. As Arcasidball he beat him to become Christian first. But you claimed my throne!
  • Ancient Greece-icon.png Ancient Greeceball: We were good friends before SPQRball absorbed him. Similar culture and religion. Even borrowed his alphabet for a while. But the Anahit statue is of mine! It's not a statue of Aphrodite or Artemis dammit!
  • Seleucid-icon.png Seleucidball - Get anchlussed! Ha!
  • Parthia-icon.png Parthiaball: Best friend, we also have similar culture and gods. Glory to Mihr/Mithra! But you claimed my throne!!
  • Kingdom of Pontus-icon.png Kingdom of Pontusball: My little friend. Don't worry, I'll protect yuo.
  • Sassanid-icon.png Sasanian Empireball: Boo, bring friend Parthiaball back! Just for that I'm converting to Christian!
  • Caucasian Albania-icon.png Caucasian Albaniaball: Cute little wannabe of me.

How to Draw

Orontid Ancient Armeniaball was too old for flag, but Ancient Armeniaball had two flags later. In some comics Artaxiad Armeniaball is drawn as a rectangle similar to Reichtangle, owing to the time that he conquered much of the Middle East.

Artaxiad Armeniaball:

  • Draw a circle
  • Draw a golden star/flower with eagles on each side with their heads turned toward each other.
  • Color background purple.
  • Draw the eyes and you're finished.

Arsacid Armeniaball:

  • Same but draw two birds facing one another, with a golden sun design in between, against a blue background.
