Guaram III of Iberia

Guaram III of Iberia

Guaram III ( _ka. გუარამ III), of the Guaramid dynasty, was a presiding prince of Iberia (Kartli, eastern Georgia) from before 693 to c. 748.

Guaram III was bestowed with the Byzantine title of curopalates, and thus, must have succeeded his father or grandfather Guaram II shortly before 693, i.e., before the resurgent Caliphate ousted the Byzantines from the Caucasus region.Suny, Ronald Grigor (1994), "The Making of the Georgian Nation: 2nd edition", p. 27. Indiana University Press, ISBN 0253209153] The c. 800 chronicle of Pseudo-Juansher also refers to the princes Mihr, Archil, and the sons of the latter – Iovane and Juansher – in this period. It should be noted, however, that neither of these individuals were presiding princes of Iberia, but the provincial rulers of Kakheti in the east.Rapp, Stephen H. (2003), "Studies In Medieval Georgian Historiography: Early Texts And Eurasian Contexts", p. 383. Peeters Bvba ISBN 90-429-1318-5.]

Guaram III had a son also called Guaram (or Gurgen), and two anonymous daughters one of whom married the Chosroid prince Archil, and the other married the Bagratid prince Vasak. His son, Guaram/Gurgen was married to a Nersianid princess, daughter of Adarnase III, and fathered Stephen III.Rapp, Stephen H.
