The Georgians suffered bitter defeat at the Battle of Garni, and the royal court with Queen Rusudan moved to Kutaisi, when the Georgian capital Tbilisi was besieged by the Khwarezmians.

The defeated Georgians were ordered to change religion and become Muslims, but refused and almost the whole population of Tbilisi was massacred.
