    Yeah the mod starts in 1174. Capital of Georgia is the mighty fortress of Tbilisi.

    I believe that Georgia was in very bad times around 1080. Tbilisi was under the Turks and Georgia was centred more to the west around Kutaisi.

    On the front page! Great stuff, congrats.

    Hopefully will get a few more people interested. Not many Georgian factions included in mods, Georgians must be happy especially with this awesome roster

    Tadzreuli...I'll ask it to you cause you know everything about Georgia!
    Was Kutaisi under Georgia or the Turks in 1080?
    Although I found lots of informations about Georgia out there I couldn't seem to find this little one...

    Between 975 1122 Kutaisi was the capital of Kingdom of Georgia, and in the 15th century-1810 the capital of the Imeretian Kingdom.

    About tbilisi, in 1068 tbilisi was once again sacked, only this time by the seljuk turks under sultan alp arslan.
    In 1122 after heavy fighting with the seljuks the troops of the King of Georgia David the Builder entered Tbilisi. After the battles for Tbilisi concluded, David moved his residence from Kutaisi to Tbilisi, making it the capital of a unified Georgian State.

    bravo, Arsen ! that's right, but at 1122 AD Georgia was almost unified, Tbilisi was surrounded by the Georgian lands.

    no, Kutaisi (proper medieval name is Kutatisi) was temporary capital of Georgian kingdom.

    at 1080 AD Tbilisi was ruled by old Arabian emir dinasty - Japharid's with civil administrators, like senators. Arabian rulers of Tbilisi was vassals of Turks.

    It was almost unified? Was it not completely unified by the time David took back tbilisi? - Or maybe you say almost because there was still small threats and that there was some issues georgians had to deal with until they are total secure. But practically Georgia took back those lands in 1122

    Thanks! I can see now that Tadzreuli is not the only Georgia Specialist out here!

    no, Kutaisi (proper medieval name is Kutatisi) was temporary capital of Georgian kingdom.

    Thanks Tadzreuli!

    I think Tadzreuli know aloooot more then me about georgia overall

    Actually, I think Kutaisi is pretty accurate itself. Depending on what timeframe it is. Kutatisi is more ancient I think.

    as I remember, "Kutatisi" is medieval name of modern "Kutaisi", the ancient name is - Aea/Aia.
