Events[edit]

By place[edit]

Byzantine Empire[edit]

  • September 18Battle of Kapetrou: A combined Byzantine-Georgian army (50,000 man) under the Byzantine generals Aaronios and Katakalon Kekaumenos (supported by the Georgian duke Liparit IV) is defeated by the invading Seljuk Turks led by Ibrahim Inal (a half-brother of Sultan Tughril) at Kapetrou (near modern-day Pasinler). Ibrahim is able to safely withdraw the Byzantine territory, laden with spoils and captives, including Liparit.
  • Winter – Emperor Constantine IX sends an embassy with gifts and a ransom for the release of Liparit IV to Tughril. However, the sultan magnanimously sets free Liparit on condition that he will never again fight the Seljuks.
