George VIII or Giorgi VIII (1417–1476) was a king of Georgia, though already fragmentised and dragged into a fierce civil war, from 1446 to 1465. Defeated by his rivals, he was left with an eastern province Kakheti alone, where he reigned as George I from 1465 until his death, founding a local branch of the Bagrationi royal house.
