The second part "Series regum sive principum" is mainly based on Georgian manuscripts. Henrich Brenner, Finnish-born philosopher and diplomat who accompanied the Swedish envoy Ludvig Fabricius to Persia in 1697. The aim of the embassy was to establish trade relations between Persia and Sweden. Three years later on Brenner's return journey he was imprisoned in Russia.Due to the war between Charles XII and Peter I the Czar suspected that Brenner's mission might have secret political purposes and therefore had Brenner arrested at Moscow. He was imprisoned for twenty-one years until the conclusion of the Peace of Nystad. During his journey and the long imprisonment in Russia he had opportunity to study the languages and cultures of Armenia, Dagestan, Georgia and Circassia. Brenner's extensive commentary of the "Epitome com. Moysis Armeni" indicates his broad knowledge of classical and oriental literature.
