Soyudlu was a village in the territory of the Aghbaba area (nahiya) of the Kars uezd of the former Kars province, later in the former Amasiya (Aghbaba) district, and present-day Shirak province. It was located 35 km to the northwest of Amasiya and 10 km to the west of Lake Arpa. The name of the village was noted in “The Iravan Province Review Book” and marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.
The original inhabitants of the village were Azerbaijanis. The village was inhabited by 73 Azerbaijanis in 1886, 118 in 1897, 89 in 1908 and 179 Azerbaijanis in 1914. The village was devastated as a result of attacks of Armenian armed formations in February 1920 and the inhabitants were expelled. The village was integrated within the Aghbaba area into Soviet Armenia according to the Treaty of Kars in 1921. After that, the village inhabitants migrated to Türkiye. It was reduced to ruins after 1922.
The toponym was coined on the basis of the name of the Turkic Soyudlu tribe.
