The Armenian Chess Federation was founded in 1927. Armenia’s first National Championship was held in 1934, and was won by the great Henrik Kasparian, who went on to win this title ten times. Kasparian was the first Armenian Master, and is renowned internationally as among the greatest chess composers ever. The former World Champion Tigran Petrosian was bestowed Champion of Armenia three times. Armenia has been a member of FIDE since 1992, following the breakup of the Soviet Union and its rebirth as an independent country.
