The winds of fate had scattered many Georgians across distant lands in XV-XIX centuries. Some Georgians had been kidnapped, others captured during wars and raids while still others were sold into slavery by Georgians themselves, in some cases by their own families.
From the Ottoman Empire to Yemen, from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco to the rolling hills of India, there was hardly a land where Georgians had not left an imprint. In fact, in some places, the Georgians slaves managed to gain political power and lead.
Apart from a few exceptions, the fate of these Georgians remains unknown and their names lost in the sands of time. This book seeks to introduce the reader to select stories about Georgians that have been so long lost in the foreign lands.
