Queen Tamar – one of Georgia’s most notable persons

Tamar the Great (c. 1160 – 18 January 1213), of the Bagrationi dynasty, was Queen Regnant of Georgia from 1184 to 1213. Tamar presided over the “Golden age” of the medieval Georgian monarchy. Her position as the first woman to rule Georgia in her own right was emphasized by the title mep’e (“king”), commonly afforded to Tamar in the medieval Georgian sources.

Scientists believe that in 2013 year could be 800 years since the date of death of Georgian queen Tamar. Georgian church recognized her to the holy troop. The Queen descended from Bagrationi dynasty reigned in 12-13th century. These times traditionally called “golden age” in the history of Georgia. The decision of the Georgian Orthodox Church is to proclaim 2013th as “Year of Queen Tamar”.
