List of the princes (thavadi)
List of the Georgian noble families of the 19th century
There were two orders in the Georgian nobility: Thavadebi - heads of a feudal clan (princes) and Aznaurebi (petty nobility) - lower order of the feudal nobility.
On this alphabetical reference you can see: names, positions, titles and clerical ranks of the Georgian Thavadi (prince) families of abovementioned century; hereby are information about their family members and their relations as well. In the historic sources their ages are written just in the list of the Samegrelo-Svanethi families and therefore we noted them in the round brackets.
There is information related to the following Georgian regions: Qarthli-Kakhethi [q-k], Imerethi-Ratcha-Lechkhumi [i-r-l] and Samegrelo-Svanethi [s-s]. Unfortunately we have not such records on other regions. Our abbreviations in these square brackets in the reference point at their belonging to the regions.
