QUEEN MARY OF BYZANTIUM AND GEORGIA

Abstract

The paper discusses the life and political activities of Mariam Bagrationi in Byzantium and Georgia through historical sources and literature. His aspirations for supremacy at the Byzantine imperial court were associated with great conflicting struggles.


Mariam Bagrationi was a great political figure and experienced many hardships in her life. She actually ruled the Byzantine Empire and became such a successful figure that although the Byzantines did not spare other nations than the Greeks, the Byzantine historians of that time could not hide their admiration for her mind and beauty. The queen, who was the first person in the superpower of the world, did not forget her country and helped to introduce the necessary reforms, build Georgian churches and monasteries and educate Georgian youth.


 Key words: Georgia, Byzantium, Empire, Queen, Constantinople, Turkish-Seljuks, Reforms
