After becoming king, Agha Mohammad Khan of Qajar dynasty took back Georgia which was captured by Russians in 1873. Catherine was determined to counter the attack by a punitive action. Her army set out in April 1796 from Kizilyar and captured Darband on May,10. In June, the Russian army overran most of the Azerbaijan territory including Baku, and Ganjeh. Catherine's death in November and Iranians counter-attacks forced Russians back thus marking an end to their short victory.
