Created: 20th November 2014
Update:  17th October 2021
Notes: Unfortunately no Parthian inscriptions with complete genealogies exist, so any genealogy is based on limited texts, cuneiform records and  numismatic evidence (coinage).
There are several variants and the connection of some kings is very conjectural. Also many regnal dates are uncertain. Numbering of kings also uncertain.
All the Parthian kings of the Arsacid dynasty took the name Arsaces after the founder, giving rise to some confusion.
My main pupose to include this stemma is to illuminate the dynastic connections to the other Eastern royal houses and not to document the many variants, therefore I have made a choice
based on "Brill's Chronologies" and Sullivan's stemma, now updated with Assar's analysis.
AE = Arsacid Era, beginning 14/15 April 247 BC
For some reason the many kings named Phraates do not have separate entries in the Realencyclopädie.
Note confusion between Meherdates (revolted 116), Mithridates IV of Parthia (king until 147) and Mithridates king of of Armenia 72/76.

However I do not understand why Assar accepts Moses of Chorene's number of 26 years' reign for Arsaces II moving his reign from the traditional date of 211/210-190 
to 211-185, since he does not accept Moses' other numbers for very long reigns for other kings e.g. 53 years for Arsaces III.
 By going for 26 years it just makes it possible (but very unlikely) that Mithradates II was a brother of Mithradates I. 
In later articles Assar does not seem to maintain that Mithradates I and II were brothers.

Assar convincably demonstrates that Mithradates I died in 132 BC and not 138 as previously thought.

Changes 2017.05.05: PIR references updated to reflect PIR2 letter V; RE references added; many articles added; dates and stemma for pre-50BC kings revised based on Assar's articles (IN RED).
2017.10.19: added book by Karras-Klapproth and minor updates. 
2021.07.03: added books by Curtis etc, Ellerbrock, Sellwood and Sinisi and articles by Assars (Iran under the Arsakid and Arsaces IV), Curtis, Koshalenko and Olbrycht. 
Dating (in black) now follows Sellwood (1980) with later updates. Assar's dating (in red) updated to his 2011 article. Some changes, thus Vologases III now 
considered a son of Pacarus II, not Vologases II, who likely does not exist.
2021.10.15: expanded Arsacid kings of Armenia to when monarchy was abolished 428.
2021.10.17: included Arsacid descendants under the Byzantines. Added items by Settipani (Continuite etc) and Esbroeck.
