Gagik I (reigned 989 - 1020) was a Bagratid King of Armenia. His brother Smbat II the Conqueror (reigned 977-989) preceeded him.

Gagik followed the footsteps of his predecessors in building churches and religious buildings. After his death, his elder son, Smbat III, was crowned king while his younger son, Ashot, rebelled against Smbat and proclaimed his independence in the Kingdom of Lori-Joraget.
