On January 6, 1198, Levon the Magnificent was crowned king, establishing the Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia. Located in the Cilicia region in southeastern Anatolia, this medieval principality was formed by Armenia refugees fleeing the Seljuk invasion of the Armenian Highland. Levon, known in the West as Leo, was the first of a dynasty that included his daughter, Queen Zabel. He was a major figure in the Third Crusade, and ”Little Armenia“ continued to be a Christian bulwark against Islamic expansion until its fall in 1375. This remarkable collection features six issues from medieval Armenia. Close-Out was $195; new price: $145!
