in 1821, King Bagrat IX of Georgia put down an Armenian revolution and instead of punishing Armenians he decided to grant them nominal autonomy. Bagrat did not stop there, in order to strengthen his kingdom he decided to unite Caucasus into a Single State. Princes of Vainakhia and Circassia were against the proposal at first thinking that their power would become obsolete but Bagrat promised to allow them to continue their rule over their respective provinces and thus Treaty of Gori was signed in 1822
