Abamelik


Abamelik

Abamelik ( _hy. Աբամելիք, _ka. აბამელიქი, _ru. Абамелик; also rendered as "Abamelek") was a noble family of Armenian origin in the Kingdom of Georgia, and then in the Russian Empire.

According to the "Brockhaus and Efron Encyclopedic Dictionary" (1890-1906), the family settled in Georgia in 1421, and attained to the dignity of princes of the 3rd rank when the Georgian crown prince David (1767-1819) married Helene (1770-1836), daughter of the priest Simon Abamelik, in 1800. The family was officially incorporated among the princely houses of the Russian Empire in 1850. [http://www.rulex.ru/01010012.htm Абамелик (Абамелик-Лазаревы)] . Russian Biographic Lexicon. Accessed on November 27, 2007.]

In 1873, Major General Semyon Abamelik (1815-1888) was granted the right to assume the surname of his late father-in-law, Khristofor Yakimovich Lazarev (1789-1871), for himself and his descendants – the princes Abamelik-Lazarev (Абамелик-Лазаревы). By 1906, both the Abamelik and Abamelik-Lazarev lines were registered in the governorates of Moscow, Podolsk, and Tula.
