Yeghegis

Medieval Yeghegis was one of the richest cities in Armenia and seat of the Orbelian (Proshian) family in the 13th-14h centuries. The Orbelians and their kinsmen the Proshians ruled most of Zangezur (present-day Vayots Dzor, Siunik, Gegharkunik, Ararat and Kotaik) but by the 15th century they were a spent force, defeated by the armies of Timur lenk (Tamerlane; Timur the Lame), Turcomen and Persians. Ruined during earthquakes, the city was abandoned by Armenians forced into exile into Persia and renamed Alayaz by later inhabitants. Refugees from Sumgait (Azerbaijan) populated the village in 1988, renaming it Yeghegis after its original name.
