King Tamar, the Monarch of integrated Georgia, was named as «The King of Kings and the Queen of Queens of Abkhaz, Georgians, Rans, Kakhs and Armenians, Shirvans and Shakansh and Lord of the entire East and West, greatness of the universe and faith, messenger of Messiah.”
Georgians call the period of her reigning «Golden Era». During this period towns, citadels, churches, monasteries, bridges were being built, books were being translated, churches were being painted and icons pounced.
During the reign of King Tamar Georgia was the richest and most powerful country in the Caucasus.
Grandeur of the woman-leader, her purposefulness and the epoch, founded by the King Tamar, served as the inspiration for the represented collection.
The collection is divided into three histories:
Titularity –fragment of the epoch, which reached us and now is decorating the museum. It is considered that with this very kingly sign she was approving all the documents, orders and regulations being drawn up on state level. Inspiration – coin of the period of King Tamar, which describes itself the grandeur of that epoch.
Battle of Basiani – one of the most outstanding battles in the history of Georgia - it is distinguished for its result and tactical military decisions, upon which Georgia became the leading country in the Asian near East. Inspiration - the minutes when the King Tamar is blessing the army leaving for the battle.
