|...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:
Imperial Orders of Chivalry
The rubric is still under construction. So far we recommend everybody to wait for the "BURKE’S ORDERS OF CHIVALRY AND OF MERIT" which is just published (the project’s General Editor is Guy Stair Sainty), and to find and read an excellent book by a researcher from Finland, Dr. Ulla Tillander-Godenhielm: "The Russian Imperial Awards System During the Reign of Nicholas II. 1894-1917", Helsinki, 2005.
