Shapur's fire was caled the king of fires possibly because it was identified with the Gushnasp fire of the warriors, which was later designated 'the victorious king of fires', but the text is not clear), or maybe the king's fire was called the king of fires simply as a manner of speaking.

Mussolini is threatened by a nit-wit of a king and the treasonable scoundrel of a crown prince.
The cornerstone in their case has long been the spurious Hitler quote, “Who, after all, speaks today of the extermination of the Armenians?” Certainly, the argument that Hitler himself cited the world’s lack of reaction to the fate of the Armenians and was encouraged by it, must be very poignant to Jews.
The horrendous events of World War II overshadowed the Armenian genocide, and it is only recently, through the peaceful efforts of the Armenian groups, that the rest of the world has once again begun to recognize the col!ectiye agony of the Armenian people.

 R. Thomson - Khorenatsi's 'History of the Armenians' - 4a
Although the Armenian script was not invented until the turn of the fourth and fifth centuries A.D., Moses claims that there were written records in Armenia long before that time and records about Armenia kept in foreign archives.
Moses berates the early Armenian kings for not keeping archives like those of the Greeks or Persians; for although the Armenians then had no script of their own, they could have used Greek or Persian—as was the custom for private families or for local records in his own time (I 3).
If the Armenians themselves kept no archives, Moses claims that the Parthian Arsacids (to which line the Armenian Arsacids were directly related) did keep records about Armenia in their archives.
