NotesEdit

  1. ^
    King Rev I was a great-grandson of King Mithridates V of Parthia[6]
  2. ^
    Her father died in 284 AD, who remained the last in the Pharnavazid line. Georgian royal house arranged the wedding of Abeshura to Mirian,[7] who according to the Georgian annals is identified as the firstborn but illegitimate son of an unspecified Sasanian Shahanshah.[8] Mirian was a Parthian Mihranid who would establish a Chosroid dynasty. Because of Mirian’s union with Abeshura, the couple's offspring could rightfully claim to have Pharnavazid blood, but Abeshura died at the age of 15. Because the young couple had no children the primary Pharnavazid line came to a complete end.[9][10]
  3. ^
    Kings Aspacures II and Rev II through their mother Queen Nana[11][12] were the direct descendants of King Mithridates VI of Pontus (15 generations through Queen Dynamis); King Seleucus I Nicator (22 generations through the mother of Mithridates VI of Pontus, Queen Laodice VI); Triumvir Mark Antony (16 generations through Gepaepyris, Antonia Tryphaena, Pythodorida of Pontus and Antonia Prima); Julio-Claudian dynasty (17 generations through the mother of Mark Antony, Julia); King Achaemenes (35~40 generations through Mithridates VI of Pontus)
  4. ^
    King Dachi through his mother Queen Balendukht[13][14] was the direct descendant of Shah Ardashir I (10 generations)
