The Knight in the Panther’s Skin is a Georgian medieval epic poem, written in the 12th century by Georgia’s national poet Shota Rustaveli. A definitive work of the Georgian Golden Age, the poem consists of over 1600 Rustavelian Quatrains and is considered to be a “masterpiece of the Georgian literature”. Until the early 20th century, a copy of this poem was part of the dowry of any bride. The poem takes place in the fictional settings of exotic “India” and “Arabia”, and tells the friendship of two heroes, Avtandil and Tariel, and their quest to find the object of love, Nestan-Darejan, an allegorical embodiment of Queen Tamar (known as Tamr the Great, she reigned as the Queen of Georgia from 1184 to 1213).
