PRINCE KURD VACHUTYAN: LIFE AND WORK

 

TIGRAN PETROSYANTS

 

Prince of Princes Kurd Vachutyan was a prominent political figure from the 1220s up to the 1270s. The eldest son of Vache Vachutyan, Prince Kurdis referred to as reigning alongside his father in 1221, but by the mid-1230s he became the sole sovereign. Under Mongol domination for nearly half a century, he played a crucial role in the life of post-Zakarid Armenia. In contemporary records by his heirs and foreigners, he is remembered as a prince and a great figure. He participated in the defence against Mongol invasions and, in the post-war years, restored and strengthened the region of Ararat which was under his rule. Friendly relations were established with a number of noble houses, in­cluding the Hamazaspyan-Mamikonyans, Khechen’s Dopants and the Ukanants families. Prince Kurd was so reputable that he hosted Hetoum, the king of Ar­menian Cilicia, in his castle near the village of Vardenis as he travelled to and from Karakorumin 1254-1255. The vestibule of the Yeghipatroush church, and also the Katoghike church and its vestibule, as well as the library of the church of Saghmosavank were constructed under the patronage of Prince Kurd and his wife Princess Khorishan.
