Another medieval Arab writer al-Yagut Hamaui said: 'Borchali – the name of areas in Arran. " Another Arabic writer Gardizi styled the region 'Beruchelyu', that is, 'steppe wolf', a renowned historian and statesman, late XIII – the beginning of the XIV century, the author of the multivolume "Jami attavarih 'Fazlullah Reshidaddin term 'Borchali' uses and as a place name, and as ethnonym. Author of 'History of the country's Albanians' Moses Kalankatuatsi (VII century), well-known modern Turkish historians Togan and F. A.

In the very name of the Georgian sources found in the region as 'Gurdis heavy' ('Wolf Valley'), in srednepersidskih ('Pehlevi') sources 'Gordman' – 'Country people Volk'.

It is advisable to focus on the data themselves do the Georgian sources, among which attention is drawn to a set of 'Kartlis tskhovreba' ('Life of Kartli ") and' Moktsevai Kartlisai '(' Appeal to Christianity Kartli '). 'Kartlis tskhovreba' begins with the events of the VIII century, ie, reflects the relationship between the Khazars and the Turks-Kartli region, then a brief description of the fall of the Sassanid Empire under the blows of the Muslim Arab forces, as well as the emergence and history of Tiflis Emirate. The manuscript chronicles 'Moktsevai Kartlisai' a tale of conversion to Christianity of the population of Kartli (eastern Georgia), was found in 1888. Two years later, the famous historian E. Takayshvili it was published in Georgian, and in 1900 – translated into Russian. Chronicle begins: 'When King Alexander to flight and drove them into the midnight country, then it is the first time I saw the fierce tribes buntyurkov living downstream Hens in four cities and their suburbs – Sarkin, Caspi, and Urbnisi Odzrahe, and their strength: a large fortress Sarkin, fortresses Caspi, Urbnisi, Odzrahe: Then came the breakaway Chaldeans warlike tribe of the Huns, and begged the lord buntyurkov place subject to pay tribute, and they settled in the curtain.

However, the king David in order not to spoil relations with the Muslim world, visited the Juma mosque in Tbilisi and has forbidden the Christian population of Tiflis contain pigs. As a result of the campaign in 1386 in Georgia, Turkic settlement north of Tiflis subjected Tamerlane. With the collapse of the state of Nadir Shah after his assassination in 1747 in Azerbaijan was formed more than two dozen khanates and sultanates, including Borchali sultanate. In 1880, the tsarist authorities eliminated Borchali sultanate, creating instead Borchali county as part of the Tiflis province. In 1929 Borchali county was abolished, the name 'Borchali' survived only in relation to the current Marneuli. In 1949 there was a replacement – instead of 'Borchali' came to be called 'Marneuli'. Thus, ethnic Azerbaijanis living in Georgia roots go back to living on the historical territory of another Borchali the last centuries before our era – in the first millennium AD, the Turkic tribes (buntyurki, Barsils, Bulgars, Khazars, Kipchaks, Oguz, garapapagi). Azerbaijanis living in Georgia are the indigenous population of their lands and not displaced.
