Leon II of Abkhazia
Leon II of Abkhazia (Georgian: ლეონ II) was King of Abkhazia, a country in the northern Caucasus Mountains, from 767/68–811/12. He was descended on his father's side from the Anchabadze royal clan, but was also a grandson of the reigning Khagan of the Khazars (possibly Bihar or Baghatur). Leon recognized the Khazar khagan as his overlord during much of his reign.
