Stephen III of Iberia
Stephen was installed by the Caliph in the place of his maternal uncle Nerse who had revolted against the Arab rule. By 786, when Nerse’s Christianized Arab servant, Abo, was martyred, both Nerse and Stephen had disappeared from history, and the Guaramid power had vanished once and for all.
Stephen is probably the unnamed young Iberian prince mentioned by the Armenian chronicler Ghevond Yerets among the Caucasian dynasts executed at the hands of the Arab viceroy Khuzayma ibn Khazim.
