Abraham Yerevantsi

Abraham Yerevantsi also known as Abraham of Yerevan (Armenian: Աբրահամ Երևանցի) was an 18th-century Armenian historian who lived in the late Safavid and early Afsharid era's.[1] He is known for being the author of one work, which was edited later on, known variously as the History of the Persian king,[1] The History of the Wars 1721-1736,[1] or as the History of the Wars fought by the Ottomans over Armenian and Persian cities. The work contains valuable information on the Afghan invasion, the Ottoman-Persian Wars, Nader Shah's coronation at the Mugan plain, as well as of the defense by the local Armenians of the Yerevan Province against the Ottoman invasion in 1724.[1] The work is located on the San Lazzaro degli Armeni.[2] A copy of the edited version was brought to Soviet Armenia in 1928 and was published in 1938.[1]
