      Georgian Orthodox Church declares 2013 "The Year of Queen Tamara"
      Tbilisi, Georgia, February 4, 2013 Patriarch Ilia II of All
      Georgia announced during his sermon on Sunday that the Georgian Orthodox Church
      has declared 2013 the year of Queen Tamara, reports Trend.az.
      The Patriarch said that 2013 is, as most historians believe, the 800th
      anniversary of Georgian queen's repose. Although other theories exist regarding
      the exact year, the Georgian Church has decided to set the celebration for this
      Queen Tamara is one of the most revered saints of Georgia. Her reign was the
      most successful period in that country's history. Unfortunately her grave has
      not yet been discovered.
