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
Princes Yourievsky (of the Cities of Zuerich and St. Petersburg)Artist: Michael Medvedev, GHA[R]
This coat-of-arms, being a combination of the Romanov family arms and the honourable augmentation (the eagle), was granted by Alexander II to his second spouse, HSH Princess Yourievsky, born Princess Dolgoruky, and to their posterity. Note the pavilion granted instead of an usual princely robe. The modern graphic version was commissioned by the present head of the family, HSH Prince George Yourievsky.
