Abgarowicz (armen. Աբգարովիչ) is a Polish Coat of Arms of Wallachian origin. Borne by several families of the Polish gentry during the times of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, it is most commonly associated with three clans of Armenian origin: the Abgarowicz, Wartanowicz and Zachariasiewicz (or Zachariaszewicz).

History[edit]

The earliest bearers of the coat of arms settled in Stanisławów (Ruthenian Voivodeship) in 1670. They received indigenate and their Wallachian coat of arms was accepted. Around 1730 Abgar-Soltan, an Armenian merchant, had two sons. One of them, Krzysztof Abgarowicz adopted the coat of arms' name as his surname. Descendants of the other son, Zachariasz, adopted the surname Zachariaszewicz.
