does anyone here ( especially i put my money on our expert peter) happen to know if the closest heirs to the kings of abkhazia really were the kings of georgia, or if there were some closer heirs which didnt get the throne? i have read something where its claimed that the old royal family of abkhazai should still exist. (and i dont mean the princely family which of course exists)

To be honest I struggled for a moment to remember where Abkhazia was, though it soon came to me. I personally would consider it to be in Asia though I won't be picky about that, since I have from time to time included Asian dynasts in my charts of European genealogical relations! But anyway I have no idea whether there is any traceable descent from the (very) old kings of Abkhazia. I used to know quite a lot about Georgian royal genealogy but it is all so mind-bendingly complex that eventually I more or less gave up on it, and would need to give myself a substantial refresher before I undertook any investigations.

well i myself would also prefer to place it in asia, but i have seen it placed in europe according to some definitions. at least it could be argued that culturally they are european i think. and also i was naughty enough to place it under this subject as there isnt one for asian genealogy, and i thought others who could be interested would deserve to get the answer as well. thats why i didnt just private messaged you.

anyway while it is totally clear that the present georgian claimants also descend from the abkhazian kings, through a daughter of the abkhazian kings as far as i remember, i have only read that there should still be descendents of the old royal house living, who bears the old family name. that would indicate that they would be descendents through male line. but if this is true or not, i dont know. if anybody here knows from which abkhazian king, and from which of his children these descendents bearing the old familu name should stem, i would be glad to hear about it.
