About Hamada Surameli, eristavi of Kartli

Hamada Surameli (ჰამადა სურამელი), a son and successor of Bega II, was a loyal courtier and commander of the king David VIII of Georgia. During the 1290s, he led the struggle against the Alan incursions in Kartli and laid siege to the Alan-occupied Gori, which he was compelled to relieve after the Mongol intervention. Hamada stood by the side of David VIII during the king's rebellion against the Mongols.[14] His daughter, whose name is not recorded in the sources, married David as the second wife, becoming the mother of the short-lived king George VI.[11]
