Historical background


Parthia - UNITED PARTHIAN - Vologeses III

(105-147)

Vologeses III succeeded Pacorus II. He had to face the Parthian campaign of Trajan (115-117) and was forced to flee his capital Ctesiphon, which was taken and ravaged. He had to accept a Roman protectorate over Armenia and butchering of the kingdom with the creation of the Roman provinces of Adiabene and Mesopotamia. He had to deal with theft of Osroes I (109-129) and Phartapaspates (116). He died in the reign of Antoninus Pius (138-161).
