Het'oum was the eldest son of Levon II and his successor. In 1293 Het'oum abdicated in favour of his brother, T'oros III, in order to enter a monastery. Asked to resume the throne in 1295, a year later Het'oum's other brothers Smbat and Gosdantin usurped the throne while Het'oum and T'oros were away in Constantinople. Retaking the throne from his brothers in 1299 to become king for the third time, Het'oum was eventually killed in a dispute with a Mongol general in 1307, while regent for his nephew, Levon III, to whom he was trying to leave the throne so that he could re-retire to a monastery.
