Who was Constantine I of Imereti?

Constantine I of Imereti, from the House of Bagrationi, was king of the western Georgian kingdom of Imereti from 1293 to 1327.

Son of the Georgian king David VI Narin by his first wife Tamar, Konstantini succeeded to throne of Imereti, a large portion of Georgia, upon his father's death in 1293. In spite of having the title of the “King of Kartvelians and Abkhazians, etc”, he actually reigned only over the western part of Georgia and held court at Kutaisi. He remained independent from Mongol rule, but faced serious internal problems. Unsuccessful in a civil war with his younger brother Mikeli, he lost the provinces of Racha and upper Imereti to the rebel prince.

He died in 1327, having had no children, and his brother Mikeli succeeded him as the king.
