... Ashod, surnamed the Great, obliged the Caliph Motovakkel to acknowledge him independent governor of Armenia, with the title of "Prince of Princes" (A.D. 859, which as afterwards changed by the Caliph Maatmed into the full title of "King" (A.D. 885).  Thus was founded the Third Dynasty of native Armenian kings, some of whom reigned under the pompous title of "Shahan-shah," that is, "Prince over Princes."
