Bagrat IV of Imereti

Bagrat IV (Georgian: ბაგრატ IV) (1565 – died after 1590), of the Bagrationi Dynasty, was a king of Imereti from 1589 to 1590.

According to the mainstream Georgian scholarship, Bagrat was a son of Prince Teimuraz and a grandson of King Bagrat III of Imereti.[1] Professor Cyril Toumanoff considered Bagrat to have been a son of another Teimuraz, son of Prince Vakhtang of Imereti.[2]

Enthroned through the support of George II Gurieli, prince of Guria, Bagrat briefly ruled during the civil war in Imereti until being deposed by the rival king Rostom in 1590.[1]
