Notes: The Qovanlu-Qajar (Quyunlu) line of the Qajars (Kadjars) has two main branches, 1) that of Shah Qoli Khan Qajar-Qovanlu through Fath Ali Khan Qajar-Qovanlu and his descendants (later, the Ruling House), and 2) that of Mussa Khan Qajar-Qovanlu through Eskandar Khan Qajar-Qovanlu and his children. Below is the genealogy of Mussa Khan's descendants. That of Shah Qoli Khan has been outlined through the genealogies of the Imperial House from discussions of their origins to that of the descendants of the rulers from Fath Ali Shah onwards, but,f as is evident from the list below, the two lines intersect and become one at several junctures, most prominently with Fatemeh Khanom, daughter of Eskandar Khan Qajar Qovanlu marrying Mohammad Hassan Khan Qajar, and again and again. There are also other Qovanlu-Qajar lines still. The research will be published in these pages when completed.
