Gabriel of Kakheti

Gabriel (Georgian: გაბრიელი) (died 881), of the Donauri family, was a Prince and Chorepiscopus of Kakheti in eastern Georgia from 861 to 881. He succeeded on the death of his uncle Samuel. His reign was marked by the vigorous religious building spearheaded by the Kakhetian-born priest Illarion the Georgian (822–875). In contrast to his predecessor, Gabriel was at enmity with the Arab emir of Tiflis, Gabuloc' who dispossessed him of the district of Gardabani. He was succeeded by Padla I of the Arevmaneli clan.
