Tiridates I was the founder of the Arsacid dynasty of Armenia. He was crowned king of Armenia by the Roman emperor Nero in 66 AD.

In addition to being a king, Tiridates I was also a Zoroastrian priest and was accompanied by other magi on his journey to Rome in 66 AD. In the early 20th century, Franz Cumont speculated that Tiridates was instrumental in the development of Mithraism which became the main religion of the Roman Army and spread across the whole empire. Furthermore, during his reign, he started reforming the administrative structure of Armenia, a reform which was continued by his successors, and which brought many Iranian customs and offices into it.

There is an ancient statue of Tiridates I in the Museum of Louvre, Paris.
