A historically Armenian-populated geographic region in present-day southwestern Azerbaijan and eastern Armenia, extending from the highlands of the Lesser Caucasus down to the lowlands between the rivers Kura and Aras. It includes three regions: Highland Karabakh (the ancient Armenian province of Artsakh, and later the kingdom of Caucasian Albania; now present-day Nagorno-Karabakh), Lowland Karabakh (the southern Kura-steppes) and a part of Syunik.
