Line of succession to the former Georgian throne

The Georgian royal family of the Bagrations practiced masculine primogeniture, legitimate sons and their descendants taking precedence over daughters and natural sons, and their descendants. Tamara the Great in 1184 was among the nation’s earliest ruling queens and Tamara II, 560 years later in 1744, became the last.[1]

In 2017, Ilia II, the Catholicos-Patriarch of Georgia, renewed a call for the restoration of a constitutional monarchy in Georgia.[2] This sentiment was echoed at the time by the ruling coalition party, The Georgian Dream.[2]

The claim to represent the royal legacy is asserted on behalf of both Prince Nugzar Bagration-Gruzinsky and Prince David Bagrationi of Moukrani, representatives of the Gruzinsky and Mukhransky branches of the Bagrationi dynasty, respectively. Prince David’s late father, Prince George Bagration-Mukhransky, was recognised by the Georgian government as head of the former royal house in 1991 and accorded the title of ‘Batonishvili’ (royal prince/tsarevich), as noted on his Georgian passport,[3][4][5] being the seniormost legitimate descendant of the dynasty in the male line.[1][6]

Other prominent Georgians, however, acknowledge the claim of Prince Nugzar, who springs from a junior branch of the Bagratids,[6] but is the seniormost descendant of the last Bagrationi to reign over the united Kingdom of Kartli-Kakheti,[7] which consisted of eastern Georgia (Iberia).[3]

Prince Nugzar’s direct ancestor, George XII, ruled Georgia’s united central and eastern realms, Kartli and Kakheti (the male-line of the westernmost and smallest realm, the Kingdom of Imereti, was dethroned in 1810 and became extinct in the legitimate male line in 1978). Although genealogically junior to the Mukhraneli dynasts, supporters of Prince Nugzar’s line (which has come under scrutiny due to omission of an authenticating witness on his father’s birth certificate)[8] uphold his claim as that of the most recent branch of the family to have reigned. Whereas the Mukhraneli fled the Russian revolution to western Europe and asserted their claim from abroad until the fall of the Soviet Union (whereupon the heir repatriated), unbeknownst to the West the main Gruzinzky line remained in Georgia under Russian domination,[5] explicitly advancing his claim in 2006,[9] after Georgia obtained official independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.[3]

The two branches were united in 2009 by the marriage of Princess Anna Bagration-Gruzinky (Prince Nugzar’s daughter) to Prince David Bagration-Mukhransky, who became the parents of Prince George Bagration-Bagrationi (born on September 27, 2011). George can claim to be the heir eventual to the abolished throne by reckoning descent from Georgia’s kings through either his father (heir-male of the House of Bagrationi) or his mother (heir-of-the-body of King George XII), thereby incarnating the shared claim that Ilia II encouraged and has recognised.[2]

The German Empire and Kingdom of Prussia were abolished in 1918. The current head of the former ruling House of Hohenzollern is Georg Friedrich, Prince of Prussia. The Law of Succession used is Agnatic Primogeniture.[citation needed]

The Head of the House of Hohenzollern is styled His Imperial and Royal Highness the Prince of Prussia. The house is smaller now than it was in 1918 because after the monarchy was deposed, many princes married morganatically, excluding their descendants from the list of dynastic princes. For example, the two eldest sons of Louis Ferdinand, Prince of Prussia married morganatically.

Members of this family compose the Prussian Royal Family. There was no German Imperial Family as the only individuals with German imperial titles were the emperor, his consort, empresses dowager, the crown prince and the crown princess. There were no Princes of Germany, only Princes of Prussia.

The Yugoslav monarchy was abolished by the Communist-led government on 29 December 1945, on the second anniversary of the Second Session of the AVNOJ.

The current pretender to the defunct throne of Yugoslavia is Crown Prince Alexander. However Yugoslavia is now a defunct state and questions remain whether there is claim to the Serbian throne.

Law of succession

The succession is determined by Article 36 of the Constitution of 1931, which states ‘King Alexander I, of the Karageorge dynasty Reigns over the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. King Alexander I shall be succeeded by his male descendants in the order of primogeniture’. The order of succession after Crown Prince Alexander is:[1]

Art. 37. If the King has no male descendants, he shall designate his heir from the collateral line. If the King has not prior to his death designated his heir, Parliament shall in joint session elect a King from the same dynasty.

Current situation

  • Prince Alexander (1806–1885)
    • King Peter I (1844–1921)
      • King Alexander I (1888–1934)
        • King Peter II (1923–1970)
          • Crown Prince Alexander (born 1945)

          • (*) Prince Sergius (b. 1963)
          • (*) Prince Dušan (b. 1977)



Article 37 of the Constitution of 1931 states that, should there be no eligible descendants of King Alexander, the reigning monarch has the right to designate heir presumptive from the collateral lines of the House of Karađorđević. In case the monarch died without designating an heir, the Parliament would have had a right to elect a new monarch. The living male members of the collateral line of the House of Karađorđević are marked with an asterisk (*) in the above list.
