Biography

Bagrat was the third son of King Konstantine II of Kartli (r. 1478-1505, and until 1484 also of Imeretia). Bagrat’s elder brothers were Davit X (king of Kartli 1505-25) and Giorgi IX (king of Kartli 1525-34). His younger brother Melkisedek was Catholicos of Georgia from 1538 to 1541. Their mother Tamar entered a convent shortly before her death in 1492, as did Davit X (as Damiane), Giorgi IX (as Gerasime) and others of Bagrat’s siblings.
