Kingdom of Iberiaball is an ancient Georgian countryball who was established by the great King Parnavaz back in 301 BC. Actually, Iberia is a hellenized version of his Persian (Virshn) and Armenian (Virk) names, but his native name is Kartli. Friends might include his big brother Colchis-icon Colchisball, also friend with Kingdom of Pontus-icon Pontusball, Ancient Armenia-icon Armeniaball and Caucasian Albania-icon Caucasian Albaniaball. Since he was between SPQR-icon SPQRball and Parthia-icon Parthiaball, he had to make alliances with both of them, depends on who was stronger. Later frenemy with Byzantine-icon Byzantiumball and DEFINITELY enemy to Sassanid-icon Sassanidball.


Born as a 2ball, territories of Iberiaball were conquered by Achaemenid-icon Achaemenidball for a long time, but Macedon-icon Alexander helped to end Persian reign. King Parnavaz was the first king who united all Iberian territories in battle near Artaani back in 301 BCE. Since then Iberiaball became a strong kingdom with great culture and army. Sadly he became weak and even lost some of his clay to Ancient Armenia-icon Ancient Armeniaball. But in 326 CE, thanks to St. Nino, he became a Christian and new religion made him stronk again! He reconquered his lost territories and had interesting religious life, which only enriched his unique culture. He wrote 2 historical books "Conversion of Kartli" and "The Georgian Chronicles" (Or on the native language "Moktsevay Kartlisay" and "Kartlis Tskhovreba") which are our main sources about his history. Later in 479 CE, great king Vakhtang Gorgasali built a new capital, the famous Tbilisi-icon Tbilisiball which became a new cultural centre of the kingdom. Too sad that less than a century, in 532 CE, he was killed off by Sassanid-icon Sassanidball.

Today, most of Iberiaball's territories are owned by his rightful descendant Georgia-icon Georgiaball and Turkey-icon Turkeyball. The minor parts are also in Armenia-icon Armeniaball and Russia-icon Russiaball.

How to draw

Iberiaball hasn't a flag or a vexillum. So, there's this unofficial way to draw it:

  1. Color the basic circle shape of white
  2. Draw a Red cross
  3. Draw the eyes and you've finished.
