and, eventually, the Principality of Abkhazia. The area of increasing tourist interest, part of this region was detached by the Tsar’s decree of December 25 1904, from the Sukhumi district (Abkhazia) (Kutaisi guberniya) to become part of the Black Sea guberniya. The Black Sea district was only thinly inhabited since the Russian Empire took control of the area forcing thousands of locals to become ''Muhajirs''. Encyclopaedia Britannica 1911, Black Sea District The region was also inhabited by a significant number of Armenians and Georgians. thumb Georgia in 1311 AD, before repulsion of Mongols and subsequent unification by George V (File:Caucasus 1311 AD map de alt.svg) King George was on friendly terms with the influential Mongol prince Choban (Chupan), who was executed by Abu Sa'id Khan (Abu Sa'id (Ilkhanid dynasty)) in 1327. George used this loss as a pretext to rebel against the already weakened Ilkhanate. He stopped payments of tribute and drove the Mongols out of the country. The following year he ordered great festivities on the Mount Tsivi to celebrate the anniversary of the victory over the Mongols, and massacred there all oppositionist nobles. In 1329, George laid siege to Kutaisi, western Georgia, reducing the local king (Kingdom of Imereti) Bagrat I the Little to a vassal prince. In 1334 he reasserted royal authority over the virtually independent principality of Samtskhe, ruled by his cousin Qvarqvare I Jaqeli. Having restored the kingdom’s unity, he focused now on cultural, social and economic projects. He changed the coins issued by Ghazan khan with the Georgian ones, called George’s tetri. Between 1325 to 1338, he worked out two major law codes, one regulating the relations (Regulations of the Royal Court) at the royal court and the other devised for the peace of a remote and disorderly mountainous district. Under him, Georgia established close international commercial ties, mainly with the Byzantine Empire, but also with the great European maritime republics, Genoa (Republic of Genoa) and Venice (Republic of Venice). George V died in 1346. He was succeeded by his only son, David IX (David IX of Georgia). He was buried at the Gelati Monastery near Kutaisi, western Georgia (Georgia (country)). In 1462, George took Samokalako (Kutaisi and the surrounding area) from its owner, a royal kinsman, Bagrat (Bagrat VI of Georgia) for his support to the rebel prince Qvarqvare II Jakeli, a powerful atabeg of Samtskhe. In 1463, Bagrat allied himself with other oppositionist royal subjects, dukes (''eristavi'') of Mingrelia (Principality of Mingrelia), Guria (Principality of Guria), Svaneti (Principality of Svaneti) and Abkhazia (Principality of Abkhazia). The rebels met and defeated the king at the Battle of Chikhori. Subsequently, the king lost all western provinces and Bagrat was crowned king of Imereti (Kingdom of Imereti). In 1465, George attempted to subdue Qvarqvare II of Samtskhe, only to be attacked and taken prisoner at Lake Paravani. The situation was immediately exploited by Bagrat of Imereti, who seized control of Tbilisi and declared himself king of Georgia. Atabeg Qvarqvare, who now considered Bagrat as his major rival, freed George. The latter, unsuccessful in his attempt to recover his crown, was only able to establish himself as a separate king in the easternmost province of Kakheti. There, he substantially reorganised the administration, subdividing the kingdom into much smaller and easily controllable ''samouravo'' (counties) instead of autonomous ''saeristavo'' (duchies). Unlike to other Georgian polities, he put ecclesiastic lords (bishops of Bodbe (Bodbe Monastery), Alaverdi (Alaverdi (monastery)), Rustavi, and Nekresi), generally more loyal to the crown then secular nobles, in charge of special military districts, ''sadrosho''. In 1478, his father Bagrat VI (Bagrat VI of Georgia) died and Alexander became king of Georgia, initially ruling its two major regions, Imereti in the west and Kartli in the east. Alexander was expelled from the kingdom by a rival prince Constantine II (Constantine II of Georgia). Alexander retired to the mountainous western provinces of Racha and Lechkhumi. Alexander recovered Imereti after Constantine’s defeat at the hands of Qvarqvare II Jakeli, a powerful atabeg of Samtskhe, in 1483, but lost the capital Kutaisi to Constantine again a year later. In 1488, Alexander took advantage of the Ak Koyunlu Turkoman (Turkoman people) invasion of Kartli, and seized control of Imereti. In 1491, Constantine had to recognise his rival as independent sovereign, and to confine himself to the government of Kartli. He was the son of Demetre, son of the king Alexander I of Georgia. In 1465, together with his uncle, the Georgian king George VIII (George VIII of Georgia), Constantine was taken prisoner by the rebel prince Qvarqvare II Jaqeli, atabeg of Samtskhe (principality in southern Georgia). He managed, however, to escape the captivity, and taking opportunity of the Imeretian king Bagrat VI (Bagrat VI of Georgia)’s absence at the campaign in Kartli, vainly attempted to seize control of the Imeretian capital Kutaisi. Despite the failure, he considered himself king and later won some power in Kartli. However, only with Bagrat’s death in 1478 was Constantine able to drive out Bagrat’s son, Alexander II (Alexander II of Imereti), and become king of Georgia, though already fragmentised and torn apart with the bitter civil wars. In 1483, he was defeated by Qvarqvare II of Samtskhe at the Battle of Aradeti. Alexander took advantage and established himself in Imereti but lost Kutaisi to Constantine again in 1484. In the winter of 1488, the Ak Koyunlu Turkomans (Turkoman people) led by Halil Bey attacked Georgia’s capital Tbilisi, and took the city after a long-lasted siege in February 1489. Though the foreign occupation of the capital did not last long, the situation was immediately exploited by Alexander who seized control of Kutaisi and the rest of Imereti. From 1490 to 1493, Constantine was compelled to ''de jure'' recognise his cousin Alexander I of Kakheti and Alexander II of Imereti as independent sovereigns and to grant Qvarqvare II significant autonomy. Constantine himself was left with Kartli as the extent of his kingdom. Thus, by the end of the 15th century, Georgia was divided into three independent kingdoms (Kartly, Kakheti, and Imereti) and five autonomous principalities (Samtskhe, Mingrelia, Guria, Abkhazia, and Svaneti). * '''UGKO''' (KUT) – Kopitnari Airport – Kutaisi, Georgia (Georgia (country)) * '''UGSB''' (BUS) – Batumi Airport – Batumi, Georgia (Georgia (country)) birth_date WikiPedia:Kutaisi Commons:Category:Kutaisi
