Artavasdes I King of Armenia 
Artavasdes I of Armenia (also called Artavazd, Armenian : (reigned 160 BC -115 BC ) was the son of Artaxias I and Queen Satenik .
Artavasdes repelled several attempts by Parthians to invade Armenia but was eventually defeated by Mithridates , who annexed parts of Eastern Armenia and took his son, Tigranes the Great as hostage.
According to Professor Cyril Toumanoff , Artavasdes I can be identified with the Armenian king who, according to the medieval Georgian annals, interfered in Iberia at the request of local nobility and installed his son, Artaxias , on the throne of Iberia, thereby inaugurating the Iberian Artaxiad dynasty .
