Author: Hovhan Dardel
Hovhan Dardel was a 14-century French clergyman and chronicler, a bishop, ordained by the Pope, as well as the confessor and secretary of Levon VI the Lusinyan, King of Cilician Armenia. Written in French, his “Armenian Chronicle” describes the history of Cilician Armenia from the beginning to the year of 1384. The work was translated into Old Armenian (Grabar) by Khoren Galfayan (Nar Pey), from which the current translation of Ashkharabar is done. The book may interest Armenian readers in general, especially those who are interested in issues, concerning Cilician Armenia.
