IN THE SERVICE OF THE MOST ANCIENT
ORTHODOX ROYAL LINE
On Christmas Eve of the 2007. year of our Lord, our Board for Heraldic and Genealogical Studies concluded yet another very complex and prestigious Royal heraldic project.
Namely, our team of Heraldic Artists, comprising of Prof. Ljubodrag Lj. Grujich and Ing. Srechko Nikitovich, under the guidance of the Reverend Father Deacon Nenad M. Jovanovich in the capacity of the Herald, completed a new version of the Arms of His Royal Highness Prince Giorgi Bagration-Muchraneli, Duke of the Lasos and Prince of Kakhetia, Kartalia and Mukhrani, Sovereign Head and Grand Master of the Order of the Eagle of Georgia and the Tunic of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
His Royal Highness is the Head of the Royal House of Bagration-Muchraneli of Georgia, a descendant of the ancient Royal Lineage, an Orthodox and Noble Line that can be traced all the way back to the IV century AD, according to Tradition, originating from the Biblical Israelite Saint King-Prophet David The Psalmwriter. The Bagrationi ruled Georgia (and for a period of time Armenia as well) uninterruptedly for an entire millennium (IX cent.-XIX cent.).
His Royal Highness is the son of His Royal Highness Prince Irakly Bagration-Muchraneli, Duke of the Lasos and Prince of Kakhetia, Kartalia and Mukhrani and Countess Maria Antonietta Pasquini of Costafiorita.
He was married twice, has two sons and a daughter from the marriage with the Princess Doña María de las Mercedes de Zornoza y Ponce de Leon and one son from the communion with the Princess Doña Nuria Llopis i Oliart.
Besides that, His Royal Highness is closely related to the Imperial House of Romanov of Russia, Imperial House of Hohenzollern of Prussia, Royal House of Bourbon and Bourbon-Two Sicilies of Spain, Royal House of Wittelsbach of Bavaria, etc.
This coat of arms was rendered according to the wishes of Prince himself and his Herald, which is an honour of great proportions and an opportunity for heraldic enterprise seldom and sparingly given.
It gives us great satisfaction to report that our new Royal Armiger has expressed his gratitude and is exceedingly pleased with our Heraldic work of art. His Royal Highness has immediately adopted it and brought it into official usage in his House.
