Then he went to Ani, capital of Armenia, took it. As well as he married the daughter of King Kiwrike' and the daughter of the Georgian king IV. Bagarat's sister. At that time Armenian King Gagik was at Kars. Sultan, who was astounded and arose with his entire army and went to Kars to see Gagik. He made peace with him and clothed him in royal garments. Gagik prepared a great feast for the sultan and his troops. In so doing, Gagik peacefully got free of him; and in a few days he gave Kars to the Byzantines [in exchange for which the Byzantines] gave him Caesarea. And thus was the House of the Armenians overturned. But after three years (1068) Alparslan turned upon Iberia, capturing Tiflis, he gave it to the amir of Gandzak, P'atlun. Alparslan and Bagrat died at the same year (1072).
