|...THE BEAR IS UNMUZZLED!!!
This site's aim is to present a vivid image of Russian heraldry, and to provide the English-reading audience with reliable basic information on the armorial heritage and the current heraldic practice in Russia. So far a number of our sections is under construction, but we hope that the site may be already interesting and informative. Welcome to the Heraldic Russia!
ARMORIAL and GALLERIES:
Section: Michael Shelkovenko, GHA[R] vice-chairman
Mrs Maria Islenyeva (ne’e Sheremeteva)Artist: M. Shelkovenko, GHA[R]
Arms of Maria Islenyeva, ne’e Sheremeteva, from her seal (2nd half of XVIII century). The Islenyevs were untitled and so was the branch of the Sheremetevs to which the lady belonged. The robe and the ducal coronet (of a form which later became alien to the Russian armory) evoke the sovereign origin of the both families. The wife’s arms are placed to the dexter, which is possible in the Russian armory.
