Who was Sulkhan-Saba Orbeliani?
Sulkhan-Saba Orbeliani (Georgian: სულხან-საბა ორბელიანი), (1658-1725) was a Georgian Writer and diplomat. Orbeliani is noted in part due to his important role as an emissary of Georgia to France and Vatican, where he vainly sought assistance on behalf of his beleaguered King Vakhtang VI. In modern-day Georgia, the story of Orbeliani’s diplomatic mission to France would become a symbol of how the West neglects Georgian appeals for assistance.
