    * Bahram 4 *

    بهرام چهارم

    Bahram 4th was twelfth Sassanid King of Persia (388–399), son and successor of Shapur 3rd of Persia (383–388), under whom he had been governor of Kerman; therefore he was called KermanshahHe later founded the city of Kermanshah in Western Persia which was called after him.Armenia had been divided during the reign of Shapour 3 according to the terms of a peace treaty. But this arrangement barely survived the reign of Shapour 3. By about 390, Khosrau 3, the King of Armenia under Persian suzerainty grew wary of his subordination to Persia and entered into a treaty with the Roman Emperor Theodosius I who deposed Arshak 3 and made him the king of a united Armenia in return for his allegiance. Enraged Bahram 4 took Khosrau prisoner and confined him to the Castle of Oblivion and made his brother Vram-Shapuh upon the Armenian throne. Khosrau had appealed to Theodosius for help but the latter refused to intervene as it would constitute a breach of the peace of 384.Bahram 4is often regarded as a harsh man who entirely neglected his duties. His conduct, it is recorded, grew so unbearable that he was ultimately assassinated by his own troops who surrounded him and shot him with arrows.
