What information is there about Russian noble surnames?
« on: July 17, 2021, 05:51:20 AM »
What information is there to know about old Russian noble surnames other than the most common ones appearing everywhere?

I red somewhere that if some noble man had some child outside marriage the child could get his father's name maybe altered with some letter. Do you know any other cases like this where some surname is altered somewhat - maybe with only one letter?

Somewhere I even red: there were other very old ruler families (and there were added than the Romanovs)... What old ruler families there are of this kind? Somewhere I even red that even Alexander Nevsky might have some descendants. If this is really true shouldn't such be mentioned somewhere on the history pages? As you understand I know very little about Russian history, but I understand that in case such persons might really exists they impossible could carry that old surname. Could a similar case be the Rurik-family - St. Vladimir?
