George was the syncellus of Patriarch Elias II before he became patriarch about 797. During the final years before the repose of Patr. Elias, Syncellus George sent a delegation to western Europe to Charlemagne to gain the help and protection of the Franks against the Muslims in the Holy Lands. Patr. George was succeeded by the deacon Thomas Tamriq upon his death in 807.
