Several different powers rose and declined, passing control of Armenia down the centuries. It was ruled by the Sassanid Empire in AD 428, became the Emirate of Armenia in AD 636, ruled by the Bagratuni dynasty from 884, the Byzantine Empire from 1045, the Seljuk Empire of the Turks in 1071, the Zakarid noble family from the early 12th century, the Monguls from 1230's, and the Ottoman Empire from the 16th century until 1908, when the Young Turk Revolution overthrew the government.
Armenia was annexed and incorporated into the Soviet Union on 4 March, 1922. The reforms initiated by Gorbachev in the 1980's led to the eventual declaration of independence by Armenia on 23 August, 1990. It was the first non-Baltic republic to leave the Soviet Union. Its independence was officially recognized when the Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991. Today Armenia is a presidential representative democratic republic.
