Following the Seljuk invasion of the 11th century, the Armenians and Iranians found themselves under one rule, and the ancient historical and cultural ties between these two neighbouring nations became once again close and versatile. The similarity of their historical destinies appears to be more evident in the 13th-14th centuries, when Armenia and Iran were incorporated in the Mongol Empire.Among the Sāhīb Dīvāns, the highest ranking officials in the hierarchical system of the Īl-khānid state, a special place belongs to Šams ad-dīn Muhammad Juvainī, famous for his civilised personality and attainments. The present article tries to elucidate those details of the biography of Javainī, which concern Armenia and Armenian-Iranian relations of his time. Along with the Armenian and Persian sources, the author has made extensive use of the data obtained from the Georgian chronicles, which considerably improve the picture of the historical reality.
