Biography Prince Ivane Javakhishvili was born in Tbilisi, Georgia (Georgia (country)) (then part of Imperial Russia (Russian Empire)) to the aristocratic family of Prince Alexander Javakhishvili, who served as an educator at the Tbilisi Gymnasium. Having graduated from the Faculty of Oriental Studies of the St. Petersburg University in 1899, he became a ''privat-docent'' of the Chair of Armenian (Armenian language) and Georgian Philology at his alma mater. From 1901 to 1902, he was a visiting scholar at the University of Berlin. In 1902, he accompanied his mentor, Academician Niko Marr (Nikolay Yakovlevich Marr), to Mount Sinai where they studied medieval Georgian manuscripts. After the first volumes of Javakhishvili's monumental, but yet unfinished, ''kartveli eris istoria'' (A History of the Georgian Nation) appeared between 1908 and 1914, the young scholar quickly established himself as a preeminent authority on Georgian and Caucasian (Caucasus) history, Georgian law, paleography, diplomacy, music, drama and other subjects, producing landmark studies in these fields.

film power

''Power Trip (Power Trip (film))'' by Paul Devlin (Paul Devlin (filmmaker)). In 2003, AES sold Telasi to a Russian company Inter RAO UES. The Russian company paid $26 million to AES for Telasi and in return AES paid off $60 million of Telasi debt, in effect paying Inter RAO UES $34 million to take Telasi off their hands. The sale took place less than a year after AES-Telasi CFO Niko Lominadze was found murdered in his apartment and numerous other threats were made to AES-Telasi management. In the end, AES lost more than $300 million on the Telasi episode. Function thumb 100px 16th-century pistol holster from Tbilisi (File:16th-century pistol holster from Tbilisi, Georgia.jpg), Georgia (Georgia (country)) Holsters are generally designed to offer protection to the handgun, secure its retention, and provide ready access to it. The need for ready access is often at odds with the need for security and protection, so the user must consider the individual's needs. Choosing the right balance can be very important, especially in the case of a defensive weapon holster, where failure to access the weapon quickly or damage or loss of the weapon due to insufficient retention or protection could result in serious injury or death to the user.

'''Tbilisi''' ( ), formerly known as '''Tiflis''', is the capital (capital city) and the largest city (List of cities and towns in Georgia (country)) of Georgia (Georgia (country)), lying on the banks of the Mtkvari River (Kura River) with a population of roughly 1.5 million inhabitants. Founded in the 5th century by the monarch of Georgia's ancient precursor Kingdom of Iberia (Caucasian Iberia), Tbilisi has since served, with intermissions, as the Georgian capital. Formerly, the city had also served as the seat of the Imperial administration (Caucasus Viceroyalty (1844–81)) of the Caucasus during the Russian (Russian Empire) rule from 1801 to 1917, the capital of the short-lived Transcaucasian Democratic Federative Republic in 1918, of the Democratic Republic of Georgia from 1918 to 1921, of the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic from 1921 to 1991, and the Transcaucasian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic from 1922 to 1936.

Located on the southeastern edge of Europe, Tbilisi's proximity to lucrative east-west trade routes (Silk Road) often made the city a point of contention between various rival empires throughout history and the city's location to this day ensures its position as an important transit route for global energy and trade projects. Tbilisi's varied history is reflected in its architecture, which is a mix of medieval (medieval architecture), classical (Neoclassical architecture), and Soviet structures (Stalinist architecture).

Historically, Tbilisi has been home to people of diverse cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds, though it is overwhelmingly Eastern Orthodox Christian (Eastern Orthodox Church). Notable tourist destinations include cathedrals like Sameba (Holy Trinity Cathedral of Tbilisi) and Sioni (Tbilisi Sioni Cathedral), classical Freedom Square (Freedom Square, Tbilisi) and Rustaveli Avenue, medieval Narikala Fortress (Narikala), pseudo-Moorish (Moorish Revival architecture#Moorish Revival in Europe) Opera Theater (Tbilisi Opera and Ballet Theatre), and the Georgian National Museum.
