Dgebuadze (Georgian: დგებუაძე) was a Georgian noble family from the province of Mingrelia. In the 19th century, they served to the Dadiani princes of Mingrelia as governors (mouravi) of the canton of Salipartiano.[1] According to the historian Cyril Toumanoff, they were accepted among the princely nobility of the Russian Empire in 1903.[2]
