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 Medvedev, GHA[R] chairman
Sir Iain Moncrieff of that IlkArtist: Michael Medvedev, GHA[R]
Arms of Sir Rupert Iain Kay Moncreiffe of that Ilk (1919-1985), 11th Baronet of Nova Scotia, Baron of Easter Moncrieffe (of the Minor Barony of the Realm of Scotland), and the chief of his clan; the outstanding historian and genealogist, a long-term officer of arms of the Lyon Court and author (together with Don Pottinger) of the famous «Simple Heraldry: Cheerfully Illustrated» and «Blood Royal», as well as other masterpieces.
For a while Sir Iain served as attaché at the British embassy in Moscow - so the acidly anti-Stalinist cartoon in the "Blood Royal" was inspired by his immediate experience.
The arms contain, inter alia, the famous and unique mantling, formed by oaken leaves-shaped elements veined Or.
