    Georgia and Byzantium had friendly relations and wars in IX-XI centuries , Georgians (Chans) lived in the Trabzon Empire. Why Ignore you this huge fact? I have many books and Pdf s about Georgian Medieval Army .

    Georgian troops move in to Trepzin region when Queen Tammara sent them to re-inforce the Empire of Trepzin. It is true that Basil 2d made a campaign in Georgia but there were no georgian troops in his armies untill Komnenean dynasty.The Empire had enough soldiers untill 1071AD tto allow defend its self without foreign soldiers. I saw the exact same post in SSIP submod in SS and your effort to promote georgian trops in mods. Georgians are diffrent story than Armenians. End of story.

    Are you annoyed? is there any problem? The Kingdom of Georgia and this Georgian Army really existed. Disintegrated Armenia was part of Georgia. 1-2 Georgian units will be Beautiful for game.

    I just think it's your approach. Your enthusiasm, mixed with language is misinterpreted as pushing Georgia. I can understand passion for a subject matter, nevertheless the various kingdoms that make Georgia /Iberia are off map.
    The kingdom of Tao ruled by Davit supported Phokas rebellion with cavalry, against emperor Basil II. (Roman civil wars 988 and 979
    Davit -Upper and Bagrat -Lower Tao (Kartali) were in war of their own in 988-79
    Bagrat submitted both Kartali and Tao to the Romans for land and titles. Davit was given title "Kouropalatates".
    But in 1000 as by treaty Davits lands were left to empire.

    i personally like the idea of a georgian cavalry mercenary unit. we have some exotic units in existence so far, like the tibeatian ermed ghulams or many dailamy or black african units. georgian units didn´t play much preority right now and the armenian roster fit in very well so far.
    there are rosters like serbia, moravia, the islamic factions and bulgaria that need our attention first.
