Prince Teymuraz K. Bagration (August 21, 1912 – April 10, 1992) was a Georgian-Russian nobleman and an émigré in the United States where he served as President of the Tolstoy Foundation, a New York-based charitable organization.

He was born at Pavlovsk, Imperial Russia, into the prominent aristocratic family. His father, Prince Konstantin Bagration-Mukhransky (1889-1915), a member of the Mukhrani branch of the Bagrationi family, formerly a royal dynasty of Georgia, was an Imperial Russian Army officer and was killed in World War I. Teymuraz's mother, Princess Tatiana Constantinovna of Russia (1890-1979) was a member of the Romanov Dynasty of Russia.

Teymuraz Bagration left Russia after the 1917 Revolution. During World War II, he served in the Royal Yugoslav Army. After the war, he emigrated to the U.S. and joined Tolstoy Foundation in 1949. He became Executive Director in 1979 and led the organization from 1986 until his death at New York in 1992. He was known for his efforts to resettle Georgian, Russian and other ethnic refugees from the Soviet Union and East European countries. He was also involved in the resettlement of refugees from Vietnam, Tibet, Cuba, Uganda, and other countries. As a member of CARE and Interaction, a coalition of more than 100 charitable organizations, Bagration was instrumental in assisting displaced persons who came to the U.S.

On July 5, 2007, Bagration's unique archive was presented by his wife, Princess Irina, to the National Parliamentary Library of Georgia.[1]
