1877 – 1920s


Nino (Ninutsa) Kipiani, a granddaughter of Dimitri Kipiani, was the first woman lawyer from the Russian Empire, who graduated from the law school in Brussels. She was a desk officer in the embassies of Italy, Belgium.


Nino (Ninutsa) Kipiani was engaged in the liberation movement and dedicated a number of letters to this issue. In 1907, the Tsarist government prohibited her to live Russia, after which she moved first to Brussels to live with her father Niko Kipiani, and then to Italy.


According to a hypothesis of a Georgian researcher, Nodar Jologua, Nino Kipiani was the author of a report which was presented under the penname of Tezreli at the first inter-party conference dedicated to separatism (which meant the fight for the independence of Georgia) held in Geneva in April 1904. The author who was unable to arrive at the conference, called on the conference to set up a revolutionary committee to prepared the ground for the fight for a political independence of Georgia whilst and the framework of a strategic plan, to establish ties with other nations of the Russian Empire, especially with the people of the Caucasus.


Having returned from Italy in early 1920s, Nino Kipiani first lived in Tbilisi and then in Kvishkheti. She died soon of grave illness and was buried nearby, in the yard of the Christ's Resurrection Church.

The congress is a necessity in current situation. No one knows what kind of changes will take place in the foreseeable future and we must be ready for that and if we fail to help ourselves during these changes, it will be late to do that thereafter"…
