Last week, several members of different branches of the Georgian royal family issued a letter of protest against their cousin Prince David Bagration-Mukhransky. The letter reads as follows:

 

An Official Letter of Protest

The Bagrationi Family Association is an international organisation uniting the majority of Bagrationi descendants. In 2006, a Memorandum was officially signed by the majority of Bagrationi Family Association members recognising the direct male descendant of the late ruling King of Georgia, Giorgi XII, HRH Crown Prince Nugzar Bagrationi-Gruzinski [as] the Head of the Royal House of Georgia.

We officially declare that neither the Bagrationi Family Association nor the representatives of the Bagrationi-Gruzinski royal line, recognise Tavadi (Prince) David Bagration-Moukhransky as the Head of the Royal House of Georgia or representative of any royal family of Georgia. Consequently, Tavadi (Prince) David Bagration-Moukhransky, as an ordinary member of the Bagrationi Family Association, does not hold any rights to represent Bagrationi family interests officially or unofficially. At any international events, involving royal, business, or political circles, Tavadi (Prince) David represents himself personally and bears full legal and moral responsibility for deliberately misleading the public and the media on his status.

On behalf of the Association:

Crown Prince Nugzar-Bagrationi-Gruzinski

The Head of the Royal House of Georgia,

The leader of the dynastic union “House of Bagrationis”

Prince Giorgi Bagrationi-Japaridze

The Deputy leader of the dynastic union “House of Bagrationi”

Prince Jansug Bagrationi-Davitishvili

The Deputy leader of the dynastic union “House of Bagrationi”

Prince Nodar Bagrationi-Davitishvili

The Deputy leader of the dynastic union “House of Bagrationi”

 
Prince Nugzar Bagrationi-Gruzinski (b.1950) is the son of Prince Peter Bagrationi-Gruzinski. Prince Giorgi Bagrationi-Japaridze (b.1948) is the son of Princess Nino Bagrationi of Imereti, the last member of that branch in the male line, and Prince Avtandil Japaridze. In 2009, Princess Anna Bagrationi-Gruzinski (b.1976), the daughter of Prince Nugzar, and Prince David Bagrationi-Mukhransky (b.1976) married in Tbilisi. The couple welcomed the arrival of their only son Prince Giorgi Bagration in 2011. Anna and David divorced in 2013.
