Artavasdes III: king of Armenia (r. 4-6 CE).
In the year 4 CE, the pro-Roman king Ariobarzanes of Armenia, who was not from Armenia but from Media Atropatene, died in an accident.note[Tacitus, Annals 2.4.] He was succeeded by his son Artavasdes III,note[Augustus, Res Gestae 27.] who was murdered two years later, perhaps because he did not belong to the Artaxiad dynasty. The Roman emperor Augustus sent Tigranes V to Armenia, a prince who did belong to the royal family of the Armenians.note[Augustus, Res Gestae 27.]
