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: Vol.II: the Noble Families
Mr Naderwell (of the City of St. Petersburg)Author and artist: Michael Medvedev, GHA[R]
A Russian noble lineage, posterity of a subject of the Hapsburgs. The arms are newly adopted but their design, apart of the religious meaning (Our Lady’s sorrows), reflects the old family traditions, hinting to the genealogical links with two prominent Baltic families. The heraldic motif of a “belted” fleur-de-lis is traditional for Russian heraldry (being imported from Poland) but the “two-belted” lily so far seems to be unique.
