Prince Parnaoz of Georgia

Parnaoz (Georgian: ფარნაოზი;Russian: Парнаоз Ираклиевич Грузинский, Parnaoz Irakliyevich Gruzinsky) (14 February 1777 – 30 March 1852) was a Georgian prince (batonishvili) of the Bagrationi dynasty, the 14th son of Heraclius II, the penultimate king of Kartli and Kakheti, by his third marriage to Queen Darejan Dadiani.

Parnaoz tried to challenge the recently established Imperial Russian rule in Georgia and in 1804 headed an unsuccessful insurrection of the Georgian mountaineers in the course of which he was arrested and deported to Russia.

Afterwards, he spent most of his life in St.Petersburg, becoming the first Georgian translator of the 18th-century French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
