Maximilian:
Does anyone knows if the followings Princes Mdivani were real princes? the only thing I know is that they were from Georgia and they belonged to the Russian nobility, Does anyone have any information?


here is the princess Mdivani I mean

All of them brothers and sisters;

Prince Serge Mdivani  who married Louise Van Allen Astor
Prince David Mdivani who married Mae Murray
Prince Alexis Mdivani who married Barbara Hutton
Princess Nina Mdivani who married Henry Huberich and later to Lord Conan Doyle
Princess Rousadanna who married to Josep Maria Sert ( son of the counts of Sert )

According to this link they are frauds:

Their genealogy without titles:

I could not find this family listed in either Volume 3 or Volume 4 of the Noble Houses of the Russian Empire.

Mdivani
are a ¬ nobel from Georgia but not princes.

I think that Alexis Mdivani`s mother was Elisabeth Viktorovna Mdivani , who was a wife of major- general , fligel-adjutant Mdivani.
Elisabeth Mdivani meet 1914-1916 many times by Rasputin .

David_Pritchard:
I examined the book Dvoryanskie Rody Rossiiskoi Imperii, 4-m Tom, Knyazya Tsarstva Gruzinskogo (Noble Houses of the Russian Empire, Fourth Volume, Princes of the Kingdom of Georgia) by Grebelsky, Chikovani & Dumin, published in 1998, for signs of any Princes Mdivani. Under the heading: The Tavadian Families of the Kartli, Kakhetia, Imertia, Guria and Mingrelia Recognised in the Dignity of Princes in the Russian Empire, no Mdivani was listed.
