After the usurper John Shavliani seized the throne Bagrat fled to Constantinople and lived there for some time until he returned to Abkhazia in 887/888, deposed and put to death Adarnase Shavliani (the son of John Shavliani) and reclaimed the throne. He was married to the daughter of Guaram Bagrationi, the ruler of Tao-Klardjeti and had a son Constantine who succeeded him to the throne of Abkhazia.
