Armenians are the most ancient community of the Christian world. However, they have been organized and grown as a different sect of Christianity and separated their ways in 451 A.D. from the Byzantium Church headquartered in Istanbul due to political infighting and doctrinal differences. They are named Armenian Apostolic Church but called by the western sources, with some belittlement, Gregorian ( Orthodox ) which is not used or recognized by the Church.

Having lived in the past dispersed in the Caucausian plains and in Eastern Anatolia and not constituting a majority of the population anywhere they have lived, they came to Istanbul to live upon the order and invitation of Sultan Mehmet II ( the Conquerer ) after he seized the City. And over a long period of time, they have spread all over Anatolia.

Mr. Türker has arguments.
The two top-priests are not just ignorant history and facts.
