Giorgi I Gurieli

Giorgi I Gurieli (Georgian: გიორგი I გურიელი; died 1512), of the House of Gurieli, was eristavi ("duke") and then mtavari ("prince") of Guria from 1483 until his death in 1512.

Giorgi I Gurieli was a son of Kakhaber II Gurieli by his wife Anna and his successor as the ruler of Guria, a semi-independent polity which emerged in the process of dissolution of the Kingdom of Georgia, finalized in 1491. As a result, the ruler of Guria became a prince-regnant (mtavari), formally a vassal of the King of Imereti. Giorgi Gurieli remained more or less loyal to his royal suzerains, Alexander II and Bagrat III,[1] and held the rank of Grand Master of the Household (msakhurt-ukhutsesi) at the court of Imereti. Around 1511, he lost to Mzechabuk Jaqeli, Prince of Samtskhe, the Black Sea provinces of Adjara and Chaneti, which his father had gained from Mzechabuk's predecessor.[2] Mzechabuk's charter, granting the rights over the Zarzma Monastery to the see of Atskuri, mentions territorial acquisition from the Gurieli.[3]

Giorgi Gurieli died in 1512. He was succeeded, with the blessing of King Bagrat III, by his son Mamia I.[1]
