The Armenian–Parthian War (late 80s BC to 85 BC) refers to when the armies of Tigranes the Great victoriously entered Northern Mesopotamia and the kingdoms of Osroene and Atropatene pledged their loyalty and support to Tigranes the Great. Many rulers and kings of the time called Tigranes, the "Kings of Kings" because of his wealth and power.
