Tigranes V, also known as Tigran V (16 BC - 36 AD), was a Herodian Prince and served as a Roman Client King of Armenia in 6-12 AD. Tigranes was a member of the Jewish Herodian dynasty - his father Alexander was the son of King of Judea, Herod the Great and his wife Mariamne. Tigranes' mother was an unnamed Armenian princess. In the year 6, Artavasdes III who served as King of Armenia was murdered by his subjects, as he was an unpopular ruler with the Armenians. After the death of Artavasdes III, Augustus revised his foreign policy and appointed Tigranes as King of Armenia. Tigranes was accompanied by Archelaus and Tiberius to Armenia, where he was installed as King at Artaxata. Tigranes was overthrown in 12 AD for an unknown reason and recalled to Rome.
