Colonel Prince Giorgi Jandieri was awarded George's Cross for his service during the Crimean War (1853-6).

Jandieri (Georgian: ჯანდიერი) was a Georgian noble family known from the seventeenth century as grandees in the Kingdom of Kakheti.

According to the genealogical treatise by Prince Ioann of Georgia (1768–1830), the family was elevated, in 1628, to the princely rank by the king Teimuraz I of Kakheti.[1] After the Russian annexation of Georgia, the family was recognized by the Imperial order as princes Jandierov or Jandieri (Джандиеровы, Джандиери) in 1829.[2][3]

One of the members of the Jandieri family, Joseph, served as the Catholicos of Georgia from 1755 to 1764, and has been canonized by the Georgian Orthodox Church.
