The tale is still quite popular in Armenia to this day, and is still a part of their folk history. Incidentally, the earliest written records of the tale were written by early Christians, who shunned ideas of magical resurrections (finding it too similar to the story of Jesus). There is evidence that in the original versions Semiramis ''was'' successful in resurrecting Ara. Ara was worshiped by the pagan Armenians as a WarGod and of rebirth. Ara the Handsome may or may not have been based on the RealLife King Aramu, the first king of Urartu, an empire from the 800's to 500's BC which comprised of much of modern day Turkey and Armenia. And Semiramis may have been based on the RealLife Queen of Assyria, Shammuramat, who was Aramu's contemporary.

* HijackedByJesus: Christians adopted the DownerEnding version where Semiramis instead produces a look-alike of Ara to discredit pagan beliefs. Ara also came to be looked at in Christian times as the ideal faithful husband for resisting Semiramis and staying with his wife Nvard, while this probably wasn't an important moral value when the tale was first told.

The tale begins with Queen Semiramis asking King Ara to marry her. She had heard of his beauty and would stop at nothing to have him, having even driven her husband away because of her lust for Ara. But Ara declined, because he already had a wife named Nvard. When he refused, Semiramis declared war on Armenia, and sent her armies to attack the country and bring Ara back to her alive. However, during the war he was slain, later on his body was found among the bodies of dead Armenian soldiers. Semiramis was furious. However, in order to both calm the Armenian armies who now wanted to fight to avenge Ara's death and fulfill her obsessive lust for Ara, she vowed to use black magic to resurrect Ara. She placed Ara's body upon her castle and called upon the spirits of hounds to lick his wounds clean and heal him, but this was unsuccessful. Grief-stricken, she instead had Ara buried at the foot of a mountain and dressed one of her lovers as Ara to convince the Armenians that she had resurrected him, and the war was concluded.
