Throne.I remember the first years when Mariam Bagrationi,Leonida`s
sister who lived here came to me.She was Batonishvili Irakli`s
sister,and she told to me that Batonishvili Irakli died,in spite of the
fact that here was a communist regime,they permitted us to execute a
Funeral service.Irakli was Daviti`s grandfatherand deceased Giorgi`s
father,the latter we buried in Svetitskhoveli (Familiar Pantheon of the
