Lot of 6 Coins, Crusaders, Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia, 12th - 13th Century A.D.
Outside the Armenian Highland and distinct from Armenian the Kingdom of Antiquity, Armenian Cilicia was formed by refugees fleeing the Seljuk invasion. In 1198, with the crowning of Levon the Magnificent, Armenian Cilicia became a kingdom. The capital was originally at Tarsus, and later at Sis. Armenian Cilicia thrived economically, with the port of Ayas serving as a center for East to West trade. Armenia adopted Western European feudalism and customs for the nobility including chivalry, fashion, and the use of French titles, names, and language. The fall of Sis and the fortress of Gaban to the Mamluks put an end to the kingdom in 1375. The last king, Levon V, was granted safe passage, and died in exile in Paris.
