1865 25 December 1864 , Georgia in Kutaisi – 20 December 1934, Leningrad (Saint Petersburg)) was a Georgia (Georgia (country))-born historian and linguist who gained a reputation as a scholar of the Caucasus during the 1910s before developing his linguistic "Japhetic theory" (Japhetic theory (linguistics)) on the origin of language (from 1924) and related speculative linguistic hypotheses. frame Nicholas (Nikoloz) Marr with his mother (Image:Marr mother 1870.jpg) Marr was born in Kutaisi, Georgia (then part of the Russian Empire), in the family of the Scot James Marr (aged more than 80 years) who initiated the botanical garden of the city, and a young Georgian (Georgians) woman named Agrafina Magularia. His parents spoke different languages, and neither of them understood Russian (Russian language). +55%: Kaluga Kiev Kostroma Kutaisi Minsk Mogilev Nizhny Novgorod Podolia Riazan Smolensk Tula (Tula, Russia) Vitebsk Vladimir Volhynia Yaroslavl In the autumn of 1225, Georgia (Georgia (country)) was attacked by the Khwarezmian shah Jelal ad-Din Mingburnu, pursued by the Mongols (Mongol Empire). 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. A year later Jelal ad-Din (Mingburnu) took Tbilisi on 9 March 1226. The citizens fought courageously and over 100,000 lost their lives when the city fell to the Khwarezmians. The defeated Georgians were ordered to change religion and become Muslims, but refused and almost the whole population of Tbilisi was massacred. In February 1227, the Georgians took advantage of Jelal ad-Din’s failures in Armenia, and retook Tbilisi, but soon were forced to abandon the city – which they themselves had set alight in their battle with the occupation forces. Rusudan made an alliance with the neighbouring Seljuk (Seljuk Turks) rulers of Rüm (Sultanate of Rüm) and Khlat, but the Georgia (Georgia (country))ns were routed by the Khwarezmians at Bolnisi, before the allies could arrive (1228). * WikiPedia:Kutaisi Commons:Category:Kutaisi
