The two central characters in The Knight in the Panther’s Skin are Tariel and Avtandil, both courageous and chivalric knights. Much of the narrative is concerned with the quest these two knights embark on in order to rescue Tariel’s true love, Nestan-Darejan. The story culminates in a battle with Kaji the demon king, who holds Nestan captive. The poem was written by Kartvelian author Shota Rustaveli and remains an important part of Georgian culture. In fact, up until the 20th century, a copy of the poem was included in the dowry of every Kartvelian bride.
