About Country

Georgia, situated at the dividing line of Asia and Europe, is an ancient country of rugged mountains and very determined people. Inhabited since the Paleolithic era, the first proto-Georgian tribes arrived by the 12th century BC.

Throughout the 12th and 13th centuries AD, the Georgian Kingdom reached its peak, and the country expanded its cultural and political influence.

It further expanded under the rule of Tamar, Queen of Georgia, in the late 1100's to early 1200's.

Tamar built upon the success of the rulers before her, and controlled the Caucasus until her death in 1213.

In the two decades following Tamar's death Mongols attacked the area, and the Georgian Kingdom collapsed. The aid of King George V, that the Kingdom of Georgia was restored.

The newly revitalized kingdom didn't last long after King George's death, and in its weakened state the Persian Empire overpowered the eastern region of Georgia, while the Ottomans took control of the western region.

Georgia didn't recover its territory until 1762 - however, by 1801, the country found itself annexed by Russia, and was unable to regain its sovereignty until 1918. Georgia declared their independence on May 26, 1918, after the Russian Revolution of 1917.
