Ghadana of Armenia was an Armenian princess[1] and daughter of King Vologases I. Through her marriage to Pharasmanes II,[2] she became Queen of Caucasian Iberia.[3]

After his death, their son Ghadam ruled for three years. In 135, Ghadam was succeeded by his one-year-old son Pharasmanes III. Ghadana then acted as regent for her grandson because of his youth.
