Summary/Abstract: n 1490 united Georgian feudal government was dissolved and in its place were established kingdoms of Kartli, Imereti and one principality of Samtskhe. This principality which later was called Samtskhe-Saatabago, had quite successful economy and politics and didn’t draw back from the other kingdoms. There was times when its power exceeded those kingdom’s power. Territory of Samtskhe-Saatabago was equal to one third (1/3) of Georgia. Due to its convenient positions it was never forgotten by Georgian kings and foreign invaders. Samtskhe was ruled by famous dynasty of Jakelians. Their Georgian origin was doubtful for Turkish historian M. Kirzioghlu. We tried our best to show that opinion of Turkish historian is unreasonable.
