Russian wars in the Caucasus
in the 19th century

After Georgia joined the Russian Empire in 1801, many bloody wars were fought in the Caucasus and Transcaucasia throughout the 19th century: with Persia in 1804-1813, 1826-1828, and the Ottoman Porte (Turkey) in 1806-1812, 1828-1829, 1853-1856, 1877-1878. However, the longest was the Caucasian War (1817-1864), the beginning of which dates back even to 1801, according to some data.
