Section: Michael Shelkovenko, GHA[R] vice-chairman

Mrs Maria Islenyeva (nee Sheremeteva)

Artist: M. Shelkovenko, GHA[R]

Arms of Maria Islenyeva, nee 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 wifes arms are placed to the dexter, which is possible in the Russian armory.
