BAGRATION (БАГРАТИОН) I - Georgia
The Bagratids (Bagrationi or Bagratuni in Armenian) are probably descended from the Orontids, one of the 7 Great Houses of Persia, who from 331 BC were Kings of Armenia. According to one well-known legend, they claim descent from the biblical King David. Various branches of this dynasty reigned over Armenia, Abasgia, Imereti, Kartli, Kakheti, and the united Kingdom of Georgia. Arms (VII): (IC) 4 Oct. 1803 - entered among the "Russo-princely" families, which Liubimov [TRRI] considers the equivalent of being elevated to the dignity of prince of the Russian Empire. Russian Empire: (DS) 21 Dec. 1833 and 18 June 1842 for Prince Konstantin Alekseevich and Prince Aleksandr Kirillovich and his children: Petr Valerian, Varvara, and Sofia (descendants of the Prince Royal Aleksandre [Iesseevich] of Georgia).

BAGRATION-DAVYDOV (БАГРАТИОН-ДАВЫДОВ) I - Georgia
The children of the Prince Royal (a title officially accorded to him in Russia in 1804) Rostom, a natural son of King Davit II of Imereti, bore the name and title of Prince Bagration-Davydov. This title does not seem to have been confirmed in the Russian Empire. The eldest son, Vakhtang, died in 1846, and the younger, Tariel, around 1843. This name was, therefore, extinct in the male line of this branch of the Bagrationi three years prior to the date when it was officially confirmed in the Russian Empire to Prince Solomon Rostomovich (below) and his descendants.
In Georgian: Bagrationi-Davitishvili
Sources: DRRI III, MPG, STRL, TN, TRRI I

Note: According to STRL, Solomon's brother (Georgii), his mother (Mariam), his cousin (Zaal Georg'evich) and niece (Elisaveta Zaalovna) bore the name and title of Prince Davidov-Bagrationov. According to DRRI, several authors - including Toumanoff (DCC) and Ikonnikov (NdR) - have mistakenly indicated Solomon Rostomovich as a son of the Prince Royal Rostom Davidovich, a natural son of King Davit II of Imereti, whereas, he is in fact the son of Prince Rostom Zaalovich Davitishvili, a cadet of the Royal House of Kakheti (see Gruzinskii II).

BAGRATION-IMERETINSKII (БАГРАТИОН-ИМЕРЕТИНСКИЙ) - Georgia
See Bagration I. Descended from the Prince Royal Giorgi [Aleksandrovich], grandson of King Solomon I of Imereti.

ŁYSZCZYŃSKI-TROEKUROV (ЛЫЩИНСКИЙ-ТРОЕКУРОВ) - Lithuania
Łyszczyński family originally from Lithuania (Arms: Korczak). Authorisation for State Secretary Vladimir Anselmovich Łyszczyński to take the name (but not the title) of the extinct princely family of Troekurov, 19 Dec. 1915. Their right to the title of prince derives from an official letter of Prime Minister B.V. StŘrmer, dated 20 May 1916, in which he informs the aforementioned of the Emperor's approval of 18 May 1916 for him, with his descendants, to enjoy the title of prince, as a descendant in the female line of the Princes Troekurov. According to DRRI, this descent was based on the marriage of a Princess Praskovia Mikhailovna Troekurova to Count Ivan Petrovich Tolstoi, however, subsequent research has shown the wife of Count I.P. Tolstoi to be Praskovia Mikhailovna Rtishcheva, therefore the presumed descent of this branch of the Łyszczyńskis from the Princes Troekurov is the result of a "genealogical misunderstanding." The authors go on to state that this circumstance (discovered only at a later date) cannot deprive them of the right to bear the name and title of the Princes Troekurov, which had received Imperial approbation.
