The Duchy of Jraberd

Historically the Armenians of Karabagh were governed by principalities or duchies. The Five Duchies were Khachen, Jraberd, Varanda, Dizak and Golestan. Jrebard, Chondzoresk, and Kasim Ushak (Kazanbulak) are historically Armenian towns in the Northern Duchy of Jraberd in Karabagh. In a fascinating political system there were Armenian Princes or as we say in modern times Governors even while Karabagh was a Moslem governed Khanate. At times these Armenian rulers had so much autonomy they were virtually independent and at other times they were merely a buffer between their people and other leaders.

The essence to this is control and for the Armenians it was very much like the Kizil Bash system for the Azeri. People were controlled by leaders of their own type.
