Adarnase, Eristavt Eristavi ( 891- 896) was the oldest son of Gurgen I. His reign lasted only shortly, and he left three children behind: David, Gurgen, and a daughter, Dinar, who later got married to the ruler of Hereti. She was the mother of Ishkhanik who converted the Heretians to the Orthodox faith. David, the oldest son of Adarnase, also had the title of a eristavt eristavi. However, David must have been very young when his father died, and it is doubtful, if he ever ruled himself. He died in 908 and did not leave any son behind. ...more on Wikipedia about "Adarnase, Eristavt Eristavi"

Ashot Kukhi, Eristavt Eristavi ( 896/ 908- 918), Georgian prince, belonging to the Tao-Line of the Iberian Bagratids; the younger son of Gurgen I Mampali. Although Ashot was nicknamed Kukhi meaning "the immature", he seems to have been a significant ruler. After the death of his brother Adarnase in 896, he probably stepped in and co-reigned for his nephew David who still was under age at that time. When David died in 908, Ashot became sole ruler which he remained until his own death in 918. ...more on Wikipedia about "Ashot Kukhi, Eristavt Eristavi"

Bagrat Mampali ( 889- 900), Georgian ruler, member of the Iberian Bagratid family. As the older son of Sumbat I Mampali he inherited the city of Artanuji and the province of Klarjeti. The year of his death is disputed. According to the chronicler Sumbat Davidis-dze, Bagrat died on the 20th of April, Easter Sunday of the year 129 of the Georgian era (i.e. 909 CE). However, Easter Sunday in 909 fell on the 16th of April; the year that would coincidence with the given date would be the year 900. ...more on Wikipedia about "Bagrat Mampali"
David I Kuropalates ( 876- 881), the oldest son and successor of Bagrat I. He was baptised by the famous monk-father Grigol Khandzteli. His daughter was married to Adarnase of Tao. In 881, David I was murdered by his cousin Nasra, the oldest son of Guaram Mampali. The reason for committing this crime probably was that Guaram Mampali prior to his death had given away his all territories which had practically left his son Nasra without an inheritance. The feud between the relatives continued under David’s son Adarnase, who eventually, in 885, avenged the killing of his father. ...more on Wikipedia about "David I Kuropalates"
