Abgarowicz coat of arms
|Alternative names||Abgarowicz, Sołtan, Wartanowicz, Zachariasiewicz, Zachariaszewicz|
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).
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.
