Historical Background[edit | edit source]

Ėrivan Gubernia [province] was one of the gubernias in the Caucasus Viceroyalty, centered in modern-day Yerevan. In 1828, the area was annexed as part of the Armenian Oblast. It was later established as a gubernia in 1850, and abolished in 1917. This gubernia roughly covers most of what is currently modern central Armenia, the Nakhichevan Exclave of Azerbaijan, and the Iğdır Province in Turkey.
