Georgia reached the peak of its political and economic strength during the reign of David IV and Queen Tamar, in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. At the beginning of the 19th century, Georgia was annexed by the Russian Empire. After a brief period of independence after the Russian revolution of 1917, Georgia was annexed by Soviet Russia in 1921. From 1922 to 1991 the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic was one of the fifteen federal republics of the Soviet Union.
