Nakchivan Khanate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (463 words)
According to Russian envoy to Persia Alexandr Griboyedov, the number of Armenian population resettled to Nakhichevan in 1828 exceeded all reasonable limits, and this resulted in tensions between the newcomers and local mainly Muslim population.
Griboyedov requested Russian army commander count Ivan Paskevich to give orders on resettlement of some of the arriving people further to the region of Daralagoz to quiet the tensions.
Nakhichevan khanate was dissolved in 1828, its territory was merged with the territory of the Irevan khanate, which in 1840 was renamed the Erivan province of the Russian Empire.
