  • Notes 
    • After his father's death and Russian annexation of Georgia (1800), the royal family was forcibly removed from Georgia. In 1803, Queen Mariam was sent into confinement in Belogorod Monastery at Voronezh for having murdered the Russian general Lazarev who was commanded to convoy the king's family to Russia. Okropir was carried away to St. Petersburg where he was enlisted into the Page Corps and commissioned, in 1812, as a lieutenant of the Chevalier Guard . He retired in 1816 and lived thereafter in St. Petersburg, being prohibited by the authorities from permanently settling in Georgia.
      Within Russia, Okropir and his cousin Prince Dimitri , son of Yulon were principal leaders of Georgian royalists; they held gatherings of Georgian students at Moscow and St. Petersburg, and tried to convince them that Georgia should be independent. Okropir clandestinely visited Tiflis in 1830, and helped to found a secret society with the aim of restoring an independent kingdom under the Bagrationi Dynasty. The society included many leading Georgian nobles and intellectuals, among them Prince Elizbar Eristavi , the publicist Solomon Dodashvili , Dmitri Kipiani , Giorgi Eristavi , the romantic poets Alexander Chavchavadze and Grigol Orbeliani , and Prince Iase Palavandishvili who subsequently betrayed his numbers. On December 10, 1832, a few days before the planned coup, the conspirators were arrested. Okropir was exiled to Kostroma in 1833, but was soon pardoned and allowed to return to Moscow where he died in 1857.
      Prince Okropir was married to Princess Anna Pavlovna Kutaïsova (1800-1868). They were the parents of three sons and two daughters who were granted by the Tsar the style of His/Her Serene Highness
