The Armenian millet (Turkish: Ermeni milleti) was the Ottoman millet (autonomous ethnoreligious community) of the Armenian Apostolic Church. It initially included not just Armenians in the Ottoman Empire but members of other Christian churches including the Coptic Church, Chaldean Catholic Church, Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, and Syriac Orthodox Church, although most of these groups obtained their own millet in the nineteenth century.[1]
