Telerig

   Khan of the Bulgars (qq.v.) from ca. 770-777 who revived Bulgaria (q.v.) as a military power to be reckoned with. Constantine V (q.v.) responded by marching into Bulgaria in 773 and forcing Telerig to sue for peace. However, in the same year Telerig invaded Thessaly (q.v.), creating another confrontation that ended in defeat of the Bulgars. For some reason, Telerig fled to Constantinople (q.v.) in 777, where he was baptized, rewarded with the title of patrikios (q.v.), and married to a niece of Leo IV's (q.v.) wife.
