Joannes Chryselios Lord of Durazzo
Per Med Lands: "IOANNES Chryselios ([940]-after [1005]). Given the probable marriage date of his daughter, it is unlikely that Ioannes was born much later than [940]. Cedrenus records that Byzantium installed "Chryselio" as governor of Durazzo after "Asotæ Taronitæ filio" delivered the city and that he and "duobus suis filiis" were installed as patrikios, dated to [1005][154]. Werner Ehrlich von Ehrnfeld has highlighted the chronological difficulty with the statements in Cedrenus, revolving around the fact that Ioannes would have succeeded the husband of his granddaughter Miroslava [of Bulgaria] as governor of Durazzo[155]. The difficulty could be solved if the dating of all events in Cedrenus was inaccurate, which is possible, but at least ten years would need to be shaved off the events to make the appointment of Ioannes likely. Another possibility is that Ioannes, referred to by Cedrenus, was a brother not the father of Agathe Chryselie. m ---. The name of Ioannes's wife is not known."

Smbat VII Bagratuni Prince of the Bagratids, Constable of Armenia
Per Med Lands:
     "SMBAT, son of ASHOT "the Blind" [Bagratid-Georgia] & his wife --- ([735]-killed in battle Bagrevand 15 Apr 775). Kirakos Ganjaketsi's History of Armenia records that "Smbat" succeeded as marzpan of Armenia after the death of "Ashot Bagratuni" and ruled for 22 years, but does not mention any family relationship between them[20]. According to Garsoïan, Smbat was the son of Ashot "the Blind" but it is unclear from her text on which primary source this is based[21]. He was appointed sparapet in Armenia in 753. He joined the Armenian rebellion of 774 against Arab domination, but was defeated and killed in battle by Arab forces on the banks of the Euphrates river.
     "m --- of Mamikonian, daughter of SAMUEL [II] Prince of Mamikonian & his wife --- ([740]-). Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by Ghevond Vardapeti who names "Samuel seigneur du domaine de la famillle de Mamikonian…beau-père du commandant" among those killed in the battle of Bagrevand[22]."

Smbat VII Bagratuni Prince of the Bagratids, Constable of Armenia
Per Genealogics: "Smbat was born about 735, the son of Ashot III/II 'the Blind', marzpan (high constable) of Armenia. The _History of the Armenians_ by Kirakos Gandzakets'i records that Smbat succeeded as marzpan of Armenia after the death of Ashot Bagratuni. He was appointed sparapet (supreme commander of the armed forces) in Armenia in 753, and ruled for 22 years. He joined the Armenian rebellion of 774 against Arab domination, but was defeated and killed by Arab forces in the Battle of Bagrewand (Bagravandène) on the banks of the Euphrates on 15 April 775. He left a son Ashot, known as 'Msaker' ('the Meat-Eater', 'the Carnivorous'), who would have progeny."2

Smbat VII Bagratuni Prince of the Bagratids, Constable of Armenia was a witness to the NB: Med Lands describes two version of the ancestry of Adarnase [III]: an Armenian version and a Georgian version. I have elected to follow the Armenian version. GA Vaut
Per Med Lands:
     "It has not been possible to reconstruct with accuracy one single representation of the ancestry of Adarnase [III], the father of Ashot who succeeded as prince of Iberia in [787], as the different primary sources are not reconcilable. Two alternative versions are therefore shown in this Chapter 1.C. Version 1 is reconstructed from Armenian sources. Version 2 is based on the Georgian Chronicle (13th century), although there are some family links which are not explicit in that document and can only be confirmed by the Georgian Chronicle (18th century). Neither version is completely satisfactory from a historical point of view. The Armenian sources give no information on the events in the lives of two of the links in the chain of descent in Version 1 beyond their names. The same can be said of several of the individuals in the descent recorded in the Georgian Chronicle (18th century). In both cases, therefore, one is left with the impression that the compilers of the sources were concerned mainly with the appearance of genealogical continuity, in the case of Version 1 the Armenians presumably wishing to emphasise the subservience of the Georgians, and in the case of Version 2 the Georgians wanting to underline the link with the previous ruling Bagratid dynasty to increase the credibility of the new dynasty. The significance of the award of the title kouropalates, of all possible Byzantine titles, to the Georgian prince is unclear. The title, the third highest honour in the Byzantine empire at that time after cæsar and nobilissimos, was usually reserved for members of the imperial family, but the primary sources contain no hint of a marriage alliance between the Bagratids and any of the Byzantine imperial families in the 8th or 9th centuries.
VERSION 1: ancestry of Adarnase according to Armenian sources
     "According to Armenian sources, the Bagratid family descends from Ambat I, Prince of the Bagratids in 314, who was the ancestor of Varaz-Tirots, viceroy of Armenia between 616 and 645, who was in turn great-grandfather of Ashot "the Blind", who is shown below as ancestor of the later rulers of Georgia and of the kings of Caucasian Armenia.

Samuel II Mamikonian Prince of the Mamikonids
Contemporary Armenian sources permit to reconstruct a famous "descent from antiquity" to the Bagratids through the Mamikonid dynasty: Samuel II Mamikonid -> ... -> Hmayeak I Mamikonid -> Sahakanoysh of Armenia (m. Hamazasp I Mamikonid) -> St.Sahak I the Great -> St.Nerses the Great -> Bambish of Armenia (m. Athanagenis) -> Chosroes III of Armenia -> Tiridates IV of Armenia -> Chosroes II of Armenia -> Tiridates II of Armenia -> Chosroes I of Armenia -> Vologases V of Parthia -> ... -> King Arshak (ca 200 BC).

One may find a scholarly discussion of further lines leading from the Arsacides to Seleucids and hence to Achaemenids in the book of Charles Settipani, "Nos ancetres de l'Antiquite" (1991).1

Ashot III-II "the Blind" Bagratuni Marzpan/Constable of Armenia
Per Wikipedia:
     "Ashot III Bagratuni also known as Ashot the Blind (Armenian: ???? ?????????) (c. 690 – 762) was a member of the Bagratuni family who was presiding prince of Armenia as ishkhan from 732 to 748. He was the nephew of Smbat VI Bagratuni.
     "He won the favour of the Umayyad Caliphate by defeating one of the emirs who had revolted against Damascus and attacked Armenia. His ascension signaled the coming to power of the Bagratids. He was blinded by the rival nobles of the Mamikonian clan. The new power of Armenia had reached such a level that the country, at short notice, could summon an army of 90,000 men, ready to be sent out to battle.
     "He had two sons, Smbat VII Bagratuni and Vasak Bagratuni.

** Ashot III Bagratuni's Descent."7



Ashot III-II "the Blind" Bagratuni Marzpan/Constable of Armenia
Per Genealogics:
     "According to Armenian sources, the Bagratid family descends from Ambat I, prince of the Bagratids in 314, who was the ancestor of Varaz-Tirots, viceroy of Armenia between 616 and 645, who was in turn great-grandfather of Ashot III-II.
     "Ashot was born about 700, possibly the son of Smbat Byuratian. However Vardan Arewelts'i (the Easterner), a prominent 13th century Armenian cleric and author, in his _Compilation of History,_ names 'Achot, fils d'Atrnerseh, fils de Vasac, fils de'Achot prince d'Arménie' when recording the establishment of the Bagratid dynasty in Georgia.
     "The _History of the Armenians_ by Kirakos Gandzakets'i, a primary source for the study of the Armenian highlands in the 13th century, records that 'fifty-four years after the immolation of the Armenian princes in Naxchawan, Ashot Bagratuni became marzpan of Armenia'. He ruled as marzpan (high constable), on behalf of the caliph of the Ishmaelites, from 732 to 748.
     "Ashot had the epithet 'the Blind' as he was blinded on the orders of a rival lord, Grigor of the House of Mamikonian. Nevertheless he continued to rule the land nominally despite his handicap.
     "Armenian sources record Ashot as the ancestor of the later rulers of Georgia and of the kings of Caucasian Armenia. Ashot had a son Smbat who would succeed him as marzpan and have a son Ashot known as 'Msaker' ('the Meat-Eater', 'the Carnivorous'). Vardan Arewelts'i also refers to a son Vasak when recording the establishment of the Bagratid dynasty in Georgia."2

Version 2 is based on the Georgian Chronicle (13th century), although there are some family links which are not explicit in that document and can only be confirmed by the Georgian Chronicle (18th century). Neither version is completely satisfactory from a historical point of view. The Armenian sources give no information on the events in the lives of two of the links in the chain of descent in Version 1 beyond their names. The same can be said of several of the individuals in the descent recorded in the Georgian Chronicle (18th century). In both cases, therefore, one is left with the impression that the compilers of the sources were concerned mainly with the appearance of genealogical continuity, in the case of Version 1 the Armenians presumably wishing to emphasise the subservience of the Georgians, and in the case of Version 2 the Georgians wanting to underline the link with the previous ruling Bagratid dynasty to increase the credibility of the new dynasty. The significance of the award of the title kouropalates, of all possible Byzantine titles, to the Georgian prince is unclear. The title, the third highest honour in the Byzantine empire at that time after cæsar and nobilissimos, was usually reserved for members of the imperial family, but the primary sources contain no hint of a marriage alliance between the Bagratids and any of the Byzantine imperial families in the 8th or 9th centuries.
VERSION 1: ancestry of Adarnase according to Armenian sources
     "According to Armenian sources, the Bagratid family descends from Ambat I, Prince of the Bagratids in 314, who was the ancestor of Varaz-Tirots, viceroy of Armenia between 616 and 645, who was in turn great-grandfather of Ashot "the Blind", who is shown below as ancestor of the later rulers of Georgia and of the kings of Caucasian Armenia.

Per Med Lands:

Vardan names "Achot, fils d'Atrnerseh, fils de Vasac, fils d'Achot prince d'Arménie" when recording the establishment of the Bagratid dynasty in Georgia[123]. The Georgian Chronicle (18th century) records that "Achot couropalate, fils de ce prince [Adarnase] et frère de l'éristhaw Gourgen" succeeded to the throne after the death of Juansher (in 787)[124]. Kouropalates of Iberia. It is unclear which Byzantine emperor awarded the title kouropalates to Ashot. No record has so far been identified in Byzantine sources of a campaign in Georgia during the reigns of Empress Eirene and her son Konstantinos VI (combined reigns from 780 to 802), which suggests that Ashot's reported succession to Juansher, dated to 787, may not be historically accurate. It is more likely that a campaign in Georgia would have been directed by Emperor Leon V (ruled 813-820), as his Armenian origin may have accounted for rivalry with the Georgians, but this hypothesis has not been confirmed by any primary source so far consulted and remains a speculation. The Georgian Chronicle (13th century) records that "Curopalate Ashot" replaced "Arch'il's sons Iwane and Juansher", adding that "the emperor elevated him so that the Hagarites' be weakened" but that he was killed by "amir Xalil"[125]. The Georgian Chronicle (18th century) records that the emperor installed Ashot as kouropalates at the same time that "Maslama" was defeated in Greece[126], which appears to refer to the unsuccessful siege of Constantinople by the Muslims which is dated to 718[127] and is therefore completely anachronistic with the other reported events of Ashot's life. The Georgian Chronicle (18th century) records that Ashot defeated Grigor of Kakhetia but was expelled by "Khalil fils d'Izid" and fled to Greece with his mother, his wife and "ses deux fils en bas âge", and was defeated by "Achot" who captured all he owned in Kartli[128]. The Georgian Chronicle (18th century) records that Ashot was killed 29 Jan 826 "par les Mingréliens", after which "les Sarrasins" dominated Georgia[129].

Ashot V "the Great" Bagratuni King of Armenia
Per Genealogy.EU (Bagratuni): "Ashot V "the Great", King of Armenia (884-890); his issue were Bagratids of Armenia."1 Ashot V "the Great" Bagratuni King of Armenia was also known as Ashod I 'the Great' King of Armenia.4,2 He was 1st King of Armenia.4

Ashot V "the Great" Bagratuni King of Armenia and Kotramide (?)
Per Med Lands:
     "ASHOT Bagratuni, son of SMBAT Bagratuni “Khostovanogh/the Confessor” & his wife Hripsime --- (820-890, bur Bagran). Kirakos Ganjaketsi's History of Armenia records that "his son Ashot ruled the kingdom" after the death of "Smbat…the Confessor", recording that held "the sparapetutiwn", then was installed as "prince of princes" and given a crown by "Mahmet", and also received a royal crown from Emperor Basileios I[42]. After his father's capture in 853, Ashot took refuge in Tayk, assuming his father's title and leadership of Armenian resistance in the north. He reconquered Širak and Aršarunik[43]. He was appointed išxanac išxan [Prince of Princes] in Armenia in 862 by the ostikan, representative of the Caliph in Armenia[44]. Ashot further strengthened his position by dynastic marriages with other Armenian princes, and eventually was able to take advantage of the decline of the Abbasid Caliphate's power to re-establish Armenia's political autonomy from the Arabs. His position was confirmed when he was crowned ASHOT I “the Great” King of Armenia at Bagaran by the Caliph's representative 26 Aug 884 with a crown sent by the Caliph. He continued to be referred to, however, as "Prince of Princes" in Arab and Greek sources and appears to have remained tributary to the Caliphate[45]. He was recognised as such by Emperor Leon VI in 887[46]. The Histoire of Jean VI Catholicos records the death "par une chute qu´il fit dans une route sur un rocher appelé Tsieg abarhaji" of "Aschod roi d´Arménie" and his burial "dans le bourg royal de Pagran"[47]. Kirakos Ganjaketsi's History of Armenia records that Ashot ruled for 32 years as Prince of Princes and five years as king of Armenia[48].
     "m KOTRAMIDE, daughter of --- ([825]-). The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified."
