The Petrova Family (Bulgarian: Петров or Петрова, Ancient Greek: Πέτροβα, Modern Greek: Petros, Latin: Petrus, English: Pierce; translates as "small rock" , "rock" or "stone") is one of the main families in The Vampire Diaries, The Originals and Legacies, and arguably the second most important family after The Original Family. The family is one of the oldest families introduced, originally coming from Bulgaria, though this family also his origins from other parts of Europe as well, before ultimately ending up in Mystic Falls. The Petrova Family has been linked to both the Salvatore and Bennett families since 1st Century BCE, also known as the Biblical Times, and the Harman Family since the 1400s.

Like the Salvatore family, the Petrova family is also known for having a bloodline of Doppelgängers, known as the Petrova Doppelgängers, starting from their earliest known ancestor, Amara (the world's first Immortal woman). The Petrova bloodline is ultimately the successor to the powerful Harman bloodline of witches with the marriage of Mariya Harman to Anton Petrova, thusly introducing the supernatural witch heritage to the bloodline. This is due to the fact that the main, royal and ruling branch of the Harman Family ended with Mariya Harman and her parents--as she was an only child--until the birth of her daughters, Katerina and Nedyalka Petrova, and then later, Adyelya Mikaelson.

When Amara became truly immortal, Hecate the Witch-Queen of the Trinity Coven knew that there had to be a balance in nature and magic, or else there could be potential problems, and thusly she created the mortal versions of Amara and Silas, known as "doppelgängers, shadow selves or mortal shadow selves", through a spell. These shadow selves would appear century after century throughout time. Tatia is the first doppelgänger of the Petrova bloodline, while Katherine is the second (and only doppelgänger to be a direct descendant of Hecate), and Elena is the third and final doppelgänger. With the death of Silas and Amara, there is no possibility of either Elena or Adyelya carrying on the doppelgänger bloodline.

It is also currently unknown whether or not Adyelya has the capability of becoming pregnant either, though because she is a born Tribrid, it is likely assumed that she can.

At the end of the eighth season of the Vampire Diaries and the start of the first season of Legacies, Elena Gilbert (human), Adyelya Mikaelson (tribrid), and Nedyalka Petrova (resurrected witch) are the last living blood members of the Petrova family, in addition to Mariya Petrova, who is a member of the family through her marriage to Anton Petrov and her daughters and granddaughter. Though, Klaus is also searching for a way to resurrect Katherine.

Family Members

  • Amara: Amara (Ancient Greek: Αμάρα, Latin:Amarantha) was born some time during 1st Century B.C.E. (100 B.C.), which was the Biblical Times. Her origins are from Ancient Greece and she is of Greek descent. She is the oldest known ancestor of the Petrova family bloodline. She was originally a human girl who was presumably born into a very poor family. Personality wise, Amara comes off as gentle, docile, and innocent, similar to that of Katherine before she became evil. Although Amara was seen to be a nice girl, it is apparent that she did have a rather manipulative side to her. Amara knew that Silas was manipulating Qetsiyah and had used her to create the spell for immortality by pretending to be in love with her. Her age is unknown but it could be assumed that she was anywhere between fourteen to eighteen years old. As a human, she was the personal handmaiden to Qetsiyah, a very powerful witch who also came from a noble and wealthy background just like Silas. Amara fell deeply and passionately in love at first sight with a young, gifted and very powerful witch named Silas, who is the world's first immortal man or being and also, the oldest known ancestor and relative of the Salvatore family. Amara's love for Silas was so strong and powerful that she desired to be with him forever, even though her love for him was strongly forbidden. Amara's love for Silas was strongly forbidden because Silas was engaged to be married to Qetsiyah. Therefore, Silas and Amara had a secret relationship unbeknownst to Qetsiyah until she found out about their betrayal. Silas also strongly loved Amara, so much that he desired immortality so that he and Amara could be together for all of eternity. Silas manipulated Qetsiyah into creating the spell of immortality with the intention of sharing the gift of eternal life with Amara, instead of Qetsiyah. However, after betraying Qetsiyah's trust after she created the spell, Qetsiyah became filled with extreme anger, rage and jealousy. As a result of Silas and Amara's betrayal, Qetsiyah wanted revenge. After Silas and Amara drank the immortality elixir, Qetsiyah found the latter by faking her death (Qetsiyah made it appear to Silas that she had brutally murdered her by slitting her throat and cutting her heart out) and forced her to become the physical Anchor to The Other Side (a place where dead supernatural beings go to after they pass on), binding it's existence to her immortal life and desiccating her. After her awakening two thousand years later, the pain of her existence was too much for her to bear and she desired death above all else. Amara's desire and need to die was so strong that it rivaled her love for Silas, which was very powerful and strong in itself. After she is reawakened once Silas finds her, she consumes the cure from Silas' blood and becomes a mortal human once more. Amara reunites with Silas after 2,000 years of being apart from him. She sorrowfully and tragically confesses her undying love for him one last time but says that although she loves Silas, she desires to die and end her suffering just as much. Amara then asks Silas to kill her himself and end her 2,000 years of suffering. Silas is hesitant to do so at first but he then understands. Unexpectedly, Silas is killed by Stefan after he is stabbed with a blade or dagger. Silas passes through Amara as she was still currently the anchor before Qetsiyah had transferred the spell and made Bonnie the anchor instead. Amara, realizing that she has officially nothing to live for now that her beloved is dead and she has endured endless suffering for centuries and centuries, tells a deceased Silas that their eternity together would start with her death. She then takes the same dagger that killed Silas and commits suicide by stabbing herself, ending her endless suffering (this happened to be very similar to how Juliet dies and kills herself after Romeo dies in Romeo and Juliet). She is presumed to have found peace and has passed on to the afterlife where human souls go to once they die. Unfortunately for Amara, she did not get her dying wish which was to be reunited with Silas in true eternal death as Silas ended up stuck on The Other Side with Qetsiyah, who ended up killing herself to be with Silas. It is currently unknown whether or not Amara reunited with Silas and finally found happiness in death with her true love after the Other Side deteriorated since Silas was last seen being sucked into oblivion.
  • Tatia (1st Petrova Doppelgänger): Tatia was born during the 10th century AD and lived in what would be the United States during the 10th century and was a contemporary of the Mikaelson Family. In The Reckoning, Tatia is first mentioned by Rebekah, though not by name, when she comments humorously that the original Petrova was much prettier than Elena. In Bringing Out The Dead, Klaus and Elijah reveals Tatia's name while dining with Damon Salvatore and Stefan Salvatore. Tatia's doppelgänger is Katherine Pierce. Tatia was a distant descendant of Amara and was the first doppelgänger of Amara.
  • Tatia's Husband (Name Unknown): He was born during the 10th century AD and was married to Tatia. He had a child with her and he died in the battlefield.
  • Tatia's Child (Name Unknown): He/She was born around the turn of the 10th century. According to Elijah, Tatia had the child with another man, who was her husband, and had died in battle. Eventually, his/her descendants migrated to Europe. He/She is a distant descendant of Amara.
  • Anton Petrov: He was a European/Bulgarian man who lived during the 15th century. He was born into the Petrov family (a witch family), specifically to parents who are descendants from Amara's relatives: her sister, who married a man from Silas and Qetsiyah's witch community, the Travelers, and thusly proceeding to carry on Amara's doppelgänger bloodline (a supernatural magical occurrence in the bloodline created by The Spell of Mirrors, which was cast by Hecate, The Witch-Queen. In the 1400s, while the Traveler coven was travelling throughout Romania, and temporarily settled down into a small village for rest before moving on, Anton met a young girl by the name of Mariya. The two of them became best friends, always meeting up at the town square; eventually, Mariya revealed to Anton that she was a witch, and he also informed her of his own heritage, though that he was unable to practice magic like her. Eventually, Anton had to move on from the village with the Travelers, due to the Trinity Coven being close by--the witch coven of Hecate that helped in cursing them to be unable to practice normal magic as a group--and therefore they needed to move on before being discovered. However, he eventually reunited with Mariya, and the two of them ran away together to be married, via the use of the Unification Ceremony, which allowed Anton (and thusly Katerina and Nedyalka) to share in Mariya's magical bloodline, thus negating the curse cast upon the Traveler coven. In 1490, he watched as his daughter, Katerina, give birth to a daughter in the year 1490. He took the baby away from Katerina moments after she was born, ashamed of his daughter for bearing a child out of wedlock. He disowned Katerina and banished her to England. He was murdered by Klaus. He was also a Traveler and therefore, was a witch with magic. It is through him that Katerina is a witch and possesses the gift of magic. He is a distant descendant of Amara if the bloodline from Tatia comes through him.
  • Mariya Petrova (Harman): She was a Bulgarian/European woman and a powerful witch from the Trinity Coven who lived during the 15th century; she was a direct descendant from Hecate, The Witch-Queen, coming from the main branch of the Harman Family, the ruling family of all of witches and covens. In the 1400s, the Trinity Coven settled down into a Harman Estate in Romania for the birth of Mariya, where they lived for the first 7/8 years of her life; it was here that she met Anton Petrov, a boy who slowly became her best friend--they would meet everday, and eventually Mariya revealed her magic to him, and in turn, Anton also revealed his heritage to her. However, eventually one day, when Mariya turned up to the special meeting spot for her and Anton, he was not there; after another week, Anton did not return and Mariya gave up. However, years later when Mariya was fifteen years old, she was reunited with Anton. She ran away from her coven in order to marry Anton Petrov, her childhood best friend, who she had met while her family was settled in Romania; at the time, the Travelers were passing through Romania, and Mariya and Anton met one another for the first time. This was against the rules as witches were not allowed to mix with witches of a Traveler sub-culture. In 1492, he helped her daughter, Katerina, give birth to a daughter in the year 1490. Although Katerina's mother was more sympathetic towards her daughter, Katerina's father immediately took the child away, ashamed of his daughter for having a child out of wedlock. Her husband disowned Katerina and banished her to England. When Katerina returned to Bulgaria in the year 1492, she discovered that her mother, along with the rest of her family, had been murdered by Klaus. Unknown to Katerina, she was later resurrected in 1494, alongside her daughter Nedyalka, via the Trinity Coven channelling a rare astronomical event--the Red Comet--and many dark magical objects gathered from other witch cultures. She is a descendant of the Amara via her marriage to Anton Petrov, as well as her daughters, Katerina and Nedyalka, and her granddaughter, Adyelya.
  • Nedyalka Petrova (a.k.a. Neli Pearson/Pierce): She was a Bulgarian girl who lived during the 15th century, and was a witch, not beholden to the Traveler Curse due to her unique bloodline from the Unification Ceremony. She helped her sister, Katerina, give birth to her daughter in 1490. When Katerina returned to Bulgaria in 1492, she discovered that her sister, along with the rest of her family, had been murdered by Klaus. She is a distant descendant of Amara. However, in The Originals it is revealed that she was resurrected by the Trinity Coven, alongside her mother in 1494, via channelling a rare astronomical event known as the Red Comet and many dark objects gathered from different witch cultures. She comes to New Orleans with intentions to take revenge on Katherine for what happened to their family in 1492; however, her intentions change when she and her sister reconcile--with the help of their mother--in order to work together to protect their family, and Adyelya.
  • Katerina Petrova (a.k.a. Katherine Pierce, 2nd Petrova Doppelgänger): Katerina Petrova, or Katherine Pierce (Bulgarian and Russian: Катерина Петрова) was born June 05, 1473 in Bulgaria. In 1490, Katerina gave birth to a daughter, continuing the Petrova bloodline, but she was disowned for having a baby out of wedlock and the child was given away. She was then banished to England, where in 1492 she met the Lord Niklaus and his elder brother, the Lord Elijah. She made their acquaintance and was friendly toward them, unaware that the brothers were Vampires and Klaus intended to use her in a sacrifice. Eventually Katerina discovered the truth about Klaus and his plan and fled. In order to thwart the plan to murder her, Katerina orchestrated her own death and transformed into a vampire. Having escaped England, she returned to Bulgaria later that year, only to discover that Klaus had murdered her entire family as revenge for her escape and suicide. Many centuries later, near the end of the American Civil War in the year 1864, Katerina had assumed the name Katherine Pierce and moved to Mystic Falls, where she lived with the Salvatore Family. The brothers Damon and Stefan competed for her affections, sparking a lifelong rivalry between them. Katherine eventually faked her own death in the interest of her lifelong career of evading Klaus, and managed to lay low for 145 years before returning to Mystic Falls. Her return to the town was motivated by the desire to secure the Moonstone and the doppelgänger, both of which she intended to hand over to Klaus in exchange for her freedom. Katherine was recently turned back into a witch by her descendant and doppelgänger, Elena. Following this, Katherine had an one-night stand with her enemy, Klaus Mikaelson, which resulted in her becoming pregnant. This was not revealed until Klaus and Elijah were drawn to New Orleans in an orchestrated plot by the French Quarter witches in order to blackmail them via Katherine's pregnancy. While at first, Klaus rejects Katherine's pregnancy, as the pregnancy progresses, it becomes clear that they both love their unborn child (Adyelya Mikaelson). Though Katherine had a strained relationship with the Mikaelsons at first, the birth of her daughter and facing numerous threats together has brought her closer to them. They now consider each other family. In order to protect her daughter, Katherine sacrificed herself, and now Klaus is searching the world for a way to bring her back to Adyelya.
  • Nadia Petrova: Nadia (Bulgarian: Надя Петрова, Russian: Надежда Петрова) was born in the year 1490 in Bulgaria. Katerina gave birth to her when she was a teenager between the ages of sixteen and seventeen. The daughter was born out of wedlock, much to Katerina's parent's disapproval, and she was given away to an unknown family. Her existence remained unknown throughout the supernatural world for many centuries; those concerned with the Petrova doppelgänger bloodline (namely Klaus) believed the line had ended when Katerina died and became a vampire. The truth did not emerge until the existence of another Petrova doppelgänger was discovered. She was shown to still be alive as a vampire for over 500 years. She made her identity known to Katherine in The Originals series. Nadia eventually goes into hiding with Rebekah in order to keep her younger half-sister, Adyelya, safe from Klaus and her mother's enemies. Nadia was a distant descendant of Amara.
  • Nadia's Unnamed Child (assumed): It is assumed that in order for the Petrova bloodline to have continued, Nadia most likely had a child or children before she became a vampire. He/She/They are distant descendants of Amara.
  • Rebecca Flemming: Rebecca is a distant descendant of Katerina Petrova and Amara and likely a recent ancestor of Isobel, perhaps her grandmother. Her tombstone indicates that she was born on August 18th, 1919 and died on September 15th, 1971, a few years prior to the birth of Isobel. Nothing is known about her character or background and it can be assumed that she was human.
  • Isobel Flemming: Isobel was a distant descendant of Katerina Petrova, and thus Amara, the world's first immortal woman. Born on October 17, 1975, she grew up in Mystic Falls and as a teenager had a child by John Gilbert. She gave her daughter up for adoption to John's brother Grayson Gilbert and his wife Miranda Sommers-Gilbert, who named the girl Elena. Years later, Isobel was married to Alaric Saltzman when she asked Damon Salvatore to turn her into a vampire. After she became a vampire, Isobel went looking for Katherine, who helped her get a Lapis Lazuli necklace so she could walk in the daylight unharmed. Isobel helped Katherine research about the tomb vampires and got the Gilbert Device for John Gilbert to destroy the tomb vampires so that Katherine could return to Mystic Falls. Isobel was later compelled by Klaus to betray Katherine and then kill herself. She removed her daylight necklace in front of Elena and burned to death in the sun, ironically in front of her own tombstone. Isobel was a distant descendant of Amara.
  • Elena Gilbert (3rd Petrova Doppelgänger): Elena was born on June 22, 1992, in Mystic Falls, Virginia. She was the biological daughter of John Gilbert and Isobel Flemming, and was therefore a descendant of Katerina Petrova, to whom she bears a striking physical resemblance. Elena is the the third and also the final descendant and doppelgänger of Amara, the originator of the Petrova doppelgänger bloodline. Elena's death and transition into a vampire ended the Petrova doppelgänger bloodline, as she has no descendants because she is unable to reproduce and have children. In I'd Leave My Happy Home For Youshe takes the 1994 version of the cure and is back to being a human and now she can reproduce and continue the line. In I Was Feeling Epic, Bonnie Bennett finds a way to wake her up. Elena marries Damon Salvatore and probably has children with him.
  • Adyelya Mikaelson: This child was conceived by Klaus and Katherine during a one-night stand in the episode Graduation. Adyelya is said to be a happy and calm baby, but resilient. Most describe her as perfect. In the The Vampire Diaries Season Five premier episode The Originals and the The Originals Season One premier episode Always and Forever, the witch Sophie Deveraux said the child is one of nature's loopholes. It was revealed in Tangled Up In Blue that the baby is indeed a hybrid and the first of her kind, and it was also revealed that the baby is a girl. Adyelya was born in From a Cradle to a Grave and sent off to live with her aunt Rebekah and half-sister Nadia so she would be safe after her parents faked her death. Adyelya is believed to be a werewolf-witch-vampire tribrid, and the first truly alive vampire/hybrid to exist.

Relatives

Through Elena and Isobel:

  • John Gilbert: John met and fell in love with Isobel Flemming during their teenage years and they dated each other for a while. When Isobel was just 16 in the year 1992, Isobel told John that she was pregnant and John brought her to his older brother, Grayson Gilbert, who was the local pediatrician or OB/GYN, so that she could give birth to a daughter named Elena. Isobel left Elena in the good hands of Grayson and his wife Miranda, who didn't know that John was actually the biological father of Isobel's baby. John later sacrificed himself to resurrect Elena after Klaus had killed her for his ritual to trigger his werewolf gene, having Bonnie Bennett channel his life force into Elena's body once she died. Though John and Isobel never married, he is considered a relative of the family.
  • Alaric Saltzman: Alaric was the history teacher and a vampire hunter is the former husband of Isobel Flemming and the stepfather of Elena Gilbert. It was later revealed that he thinks his wife, Isobel, was killed by a vampire, who he suspects to be Damon. Later he find out that Isobel wanted to become a vampire, and begged Damon to turn her, thus making Isobel a vampire. Isobel later came back and compelled Alaric to move on from her and Alaric begins a new life with Jenna Sommers and takes in Elena and Jeremy as his own by becoming their guardian. Alaric is turned into an Original by Esther. Alaric dies after Elena drowns in season three due to his sired connection to Elena. In the season five finale, Alaric is brought back to life by Liv.

Through Katherine and Adyelya:

  • Markos (Nadia's Father): He was the lover of Katherine and the father of Nadia. He was also the Leader of the Traveler coven, a cursed sub-culture of Witches. He eventually marries Katherine in order to link to the Traveler's to her to protect Adyelya (so she can bring her home to New Orleans). To help protect Adyelya from the power of the Hollow, Markos and the Travelers absorbed the Hollow into themselves using Passenger magic and then committed self-sacrifice. This was done in order to spare Klaus and Elijah from having to kill themselves in order to destroy the spirit of The Hollow.
  • Niklaus Mikaelson: Klaus is the father of Adyelya Mikaelson. He and Katherine conceived their daughter during a one-night stand in Graduation after Katherine was turned back into a newly-made witch/human. As a result, she became pregnant and moved to New Orleans, eventually coming under the protection of Klaus and the Mikaelson.

Surname

  • Petrov or Petroff (Feminine: Petrova) is one of the most common surnames in Russia and Bulgaria.
  • The surname is derived from the given name Pyotr (Пётр, Russian) or Petar (Петър, Bulgarian), both of which are equivalent to the English name Peter. These names derive from the Greek "Πετρος" (Petros), meaning "stone".

Trivia

  • The Petrova family is descended from Greek origin, but eventually becomes a family of Bulgarian heritage.
    • However, there are also origins from Europe within the Petrova Family via Mariya Harman.
  • Amara is the oldest known ancestor of the Petrova family or bloodline, being born some time during 1st Century B.C.E. (100 B.C.) in Greece. Amara was originally human but became the world's first immortal woman after she consumed the immortality elixir.
    • Amara is assumed to be of Greek origin or descent. It is presumed that her native tongue is Greek. On the other hand, Silas is presumably of Greek/Latin/Roman descent while Qetsiyah is presumably of Middle Eastern/Arabic/Mediterranean descent.
  • In the books, Katherine is a member of the von Swartzschild Family, while in the series, she is a member of the Petrova Family.
  • In the books, the Von Schwartzchild family is of German descent or origin, but in the television series, the Petrova family are of Bulgarian descent or origin. This change was made because Nina Dobrev, who plays both Katherine Pierce and Elena Gilbert, has Bulgarian heritage; she was born there and speaks the language fluently.
  • The Petrova family is referred to using the feminine form of the surname (masculine: Petrov) because so far only female members of the family are significant to the show's plot. The bloodline from Tatia to Elena Gilbert could be considered a Matriline, and even from Tatia to Adyelya Mikaelson.
  • Deleted scenes of the second season show other Petrova family members, but they are not canonical.
  • The Petrova family is one of the oldest families in the television series.
  • The Petrova family is primarily female dominated and all of the known members of the Petrova family happen to be women.
    • Mr. Petrova (Katherine's father) is the only known male member of the Petrova family.
  • It is worth noting that three members of the Petrova family have slept with Damon Salvatore: Katherine, Isobel, and Elena. Also, Elijah Mikaelson has kissed three members of the Petrova ladies: Tatia, Katherine and Elena.
  • Following Katherine's transition from a witch to a hybrid and Adyelya's birth in From a Cradle to a Grave, Elena Gilbert is the only human member of the Petrova family now.
  • Nina Dobrev has played three of the doppelgängers (Amara, Katherine and Elena) in Death and the Maiden.
  • According to this interview with Nina Dobrev, Tatia is confirmed as the first Doppelgänger of Amara. Julie Plec, the executive Producer to both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals has also stated that she is the Original Doppelgänger. Even the official synopsis to Red Door gives Tatia that same title: Original Doppelgänger. Nina uses first doppelgänger and original interchangeable when describing Tatia.
  • It's presumed that a doppelgänger in the Petrova line is born every 500 years or so, although from Qetsiyah's point of view, doppelgängers of both the Salvatore and Petrova bloodlines were being born every century. These doppelgängers for all intents and purposes would be human, who would look exactly like her physically and who would have blood with magic properties.
  • The last descendant of the lineage is presumably Elena Gilbert as she died and became a vampire before having children like her previous doppelgängers, Tatia and Katherine.
    • When Katherine was given the Cure by Elena in Graduation, she became a witch/human again and became pregnant via a drunken one-night stand with Klaus Mikaelson. As such, she passed on the Petrova lineage to Adyelya Mikaelson.
      • It is unknown if Adyelya Mikaelson can become pregnant via a 'nature's loophole' (due to being part-werewolf), like how Klaus impregnated Katherine.
        • However, as Silas and Amara are no longer Immortal and are dead, Nature's Balance does no require anymore doppelgängers.
    • Although Elena eventually injected the cure herself at the end of the sixth season and became human once more, Elena ended up being put under a slumbering spell by Kai; therefore, Elena is still alive, but she is in a deep sleep until Bonnie's death. Furthermore, if Elena did have children, the spawning of future Petrova doppelgängers would cease to exist as Amara is now deceased and doppelgängers are no longer needed to fulfill Nature's balance.
  • Both Katerina and her daughter, Nadia Petrova, became vampires in the prime of their youth and grew up to over 500 years of age, ranking them among the most powerful vampires in the series' universe.
  • Many of the family members were also members of the Travelers by birth, making them witches with special magical abilities, such as the one to escape death by "passengering" onto another human's body upon dying.
    • Many family members were also members of the Trinity Coven by birth, but this does not become known until Katherine and Adyelya in season 2/3 of The Originals.
  • Almost an entire generation of the family was wiped out by Niklaus Mikaelson during 15th Century A.D. in revenge for Katerina's sabotage of his plan to break the curse that had been placed on him by his own mother over half a century before. However, Nadia wasn't found by Klaus and presumably gave birth to a child before becoming a vampire.
  • In a deleted scene in Season Five, Katherine revealed that her lover, Nadia's father, was a Traveler, having taught her how to read tarot cards.
