activities life

worked as a court lawyer in Ganja, Sukhumi, Batumi, Kutaisi. Once he was appointed Assistant Prosecutor of Yekaterinodar county court, he began to be involved in socio-political activities. Life He was the son of Prince George, son of Constantine I of Georgia. Around 1455, he was granted the title of Eristavi (duke) of Samokalako (Kutaisi, western Georgia, and the surroundings) by the Georgian king George VIII (George VIII of Georgia). In the early 1460s, Bagrat supported the rebel prince Qvarqvare I Jakeli, atabeg of Samtskhe, and the king took Bagrat’s duchy away. In 1463, Bagrat led a coalition of western Georgian nobles who met and defeated George VIII at the Battle of Chikhori. Subsequently, Bagrat captured Kutaisi and was crowned king of Imereti. But in return for their aid, the new monarch was obliged to create a principality ('''''samtavro''''') for each of his four allies. Henceforth the Gelovani clan in Svaneti (Principality of Svaneti), the Shervashidze (Sharvashidze) in Abkhazia (Principality of Abkhazia), the Dadiani in Odishi (Mingrelia), and the Vardanidze (House of Vardanisdze) in Guria (Principality of Guria) ruled as semi-independent princes. Eliava was arrested, but granted his amnesty in a few months, and joined the reconstructed armed forces of Georgia (Military of Georgia) retaining the rank of colonel. On October 18-19, he organized a revolt at Senaki and marched on the city of Kutaisi. The mutiny collapsed, however, and Eliava and his 30 supporters hid out in the Mingrelian forests in western Georgia. Later, he demanded the resignation of President Shevardnadze. Despite the Georgian government claimed he was involved in organized crime, smuggling and Mafia activities, no serious measures were undertaken to detain him. Subsequently, he was granted another amnesty in 2000. However, he was arrested in the town of Zestaponi, on July 9, 2000, and, according to an official version, shot to death when trying to take a policeman hostage. On October 18, 1998, approximately 200 Georgian soldiers led by Eliava left their barracks at the town of Senaki in western Georgia and marched on Kutaisi, the second largest city in the country. The government forces under the personal command of Defense Minister David Tevzadze intercepted the rebels before reaching the city. Next day, after a brief shootout which left at least one rebel dead, the mutineers agreed to return to their barracks. 31 rebels were arrested, but Colonel Eliava and his 30 followers escaped. King Solomon II of Imereti (1792-1810) attempted on several occasions, though unsuccessfully, to bring the area back under the Imeretian rule. The Russian Empire intervened on Mingrelian side that resulted in the fall of Solomon's kingdom and incorporation of Mingrelia into the Tsarist empire as an autonomous entity. In 1857, the Russian authorities abolished the Principality of Mingrelia and Lechkhumi became a part of Kutais (Kutaisi) Guberniya. Together with the neighbouring region Svaneti, it formed the Lechkhumi Mazra from 1867 to 1930, when the Tsageri Rayon was created. 2013 UEFA U-21 qualification (2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship qualification Group 5) Kutaisi, Georgia (Georgia (country)) WikiPedia:Kutaisi Commons:Category:Kutaisi
