Iashvili (Georgian: იაშვილი) was a Georgian noble family known in Imereti (west Georgia) from the fifteenth century. In 1724, one of the members of this family followed the Georgian king Vakhtang VI of Kartli in his emigration to the Russian Empire, giving origin to a Russian branch known as Yashvil (Яшвиль). The Georgian line was received among the princely houses of the Russian Empire in 1850.[1]
