III/73a Seljuk Turks matches bids 4: The City of Konya (4 points)
III/70c Georgian wins the battle, 4-1. III/73a Seljuk Turks are now the vassals of Queen Tamar of Georgia, who exults in revenge for the virtual depopulation of her kingdom by an earlier Seljuk dynasty. The Sultan Kayhusraw is brought before the Queen in chains by her triumphant husband Prince David Soslan, but soon unbound, and allowed to dwell in Tblisi for the rest of her reign. The supine Seljuks of Rum are given titular control of The 12 Baronies of Achaea (2 points), The Ghisi Brothers (1 point), and The Knight in the Panther’s Skin (1 Point).
