Does anybody knows how old Dynasty is Bagrationi? and does anybody know who really they are?

And also who was Peter I? There's many stories about it and official historians always hide that stories.

The Bagrationi dynasty is 1400 years old, I meant when they became Kings of Georgia. And from 6th century no other family was ruled Georgian Kingdom, only Bagrationi Dynasty and on 1801 Russia annexed Georgia and abandoned Royal house, Georgian Orthodox Church - was Independence Apostolic Church from 6th century.

Does anybody has answers about it? What Russian Royal house and government did in Georgia?

I'm so sorry but before 20th century The Romanow's only Royal Blood was from Bagrationi Dynasty and if someone interesting it I will tell who was Peter I real father and who are Bagrationi Dynasty.

Dear Branchg,

I have seen your post on first thread:

Quote:
The Bagrations ruled the Kingdom of Georgia as Princes.
I think this is little wrong because Bagratoni ruled Georgian Kingdom like King of Kings from 11th century and Bagrationi dynasty ruled Georgia from 6th century. From 9th century they became Georgian Kings. After that since 1801 when Russia annexed Georgia, Bagrationi Dynasty ruled Georgian Kingdom as king of Kings not as Princes. :)

l have a well researched document available at russianimperialorder@gmail.com

l have a pdf file that is to big to upload onto the forum, its updated this year and completed by the fore most authorities on the succession question such as

Edited under the supervision of
the Most Reverend Antony, Archbishop of Los Angeles and South California

FOREWORD
Monarchy, if it is true monarchy and not a caricature, is inseparable from Legitimacy. Legitimacy, in turn, means
Legality, the faithful observance of both the spirit and the letter of the Law. Law, finally, is above and independent of
human practice. Thus, Monarchical Legitimism must survive historical adversities, and the inalienable rights of a dynasty
must continue to exist irrespective of whether that dynasty actually rules or has been forcibly prevented by historical cir
cumstances from holding power.
The present volume contains the principal legal texts, as well as legal and historical arguments derived from them,
relative to the position of the present Head of the Imperial House of Russia and to the rightful succession. This compila
tion is timely. At present when everything monarchist and traditional is under attack we are not surprised to find that
there are those who dare to question and dispute the principle of legitimate succession and the right of the Head of
Russia's Imperial House. This attack, like all such attacks on the obvious and the absolute, wields primarily the weapon
of quotation out of context. When faced, however, with the full context, i.e. all the texts taken together and in light of the
ascertainable intentions of the lawgivers, this weapon is revealed as totally deficient.
As a corollary to the principal thesis presented in this volume, the reader will find a penetrating and historically
essential discussion of the position of the eldest surviving line of the Royal House of the Bagratids. This dynasty reigned
in the Kingdom of Georgia and Imeretia prior to its incorporation into the Russian Empire at the dawn of the nineteenth
century. Here a telling parallel is drawn between the House of Bagration and that of the Two Sicilies which reigned in an
Italian kingdom prior to its annexation by the House of Savoy. Today both this royal Dynasty of Italy and the Bourbons of
the Two Sicilies hold a similar status, in that they are both formerly reigning houses.
One hopes to see this study translated into other European languages.

You're very welcome, BeatrixFan. I thought Maria came across as a very friendly, down-to-earth woman. Which can be rare in royals these days...

She seems to be warm ...But what is Russian people's opinion about Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna? And I don't except a real answer, for all accounts we have from Russia are spotted with political opinions from a gang or another. There are groups who saids that Russians hates Monarchy, others would affirm the contrary, and even among the Monarchist there is people not liking Mara and others adoring her.

I, myself, must admit that I never liked the Vladimirovichi that much. But maybe the Grand Duchess is nice...Who knows? Russia is beyond what I can imagine. Thigs that are told about this country are contradictory.

Russia: Monarchist Nostalgia Remains Powerful
by Victor Yasmann

http://www.rferl.org/featuresarticle/2006/10/ebcf0091-3b24-437a-af91-04b42dc81aa1.html

One quotation:
Over the last 10 years, the number of Russians supporting monarchist ideas has risen threefold. A September poll by the All-RussiaCenter for the Study of Public Opinion (VTsIOM) indicated that 19 percent of Russians agreed with restoring the monarchy, but only if an acceptable candidate can be found. Support is higher in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
But only 6 percent of those who favor the monarchy wanted the future guardian of the realm to be a Romanov. The majority thought a monarch should be a prominent public figure chosen in a referendum. In this way, the poll reveals less the prevalence of monarchist ideas than a traditional Russian desire for strong leadership.

Thus, only about 1% of Russians agreed with restoring the monarchy with Romanovs Dynasty. I think, this insignificant-sad percent in significant and even in the main degree is caused by the 74-years defamation (1917-1991) images of Nicholas II by Soviet historians.
I think in really much more than 1% of Russians would agree with the restoring of the monarchy with Romanovs Dynasty, but the percents most probably are not more 3-4% now. Nevertheless, I can remind that Yeltsin began the second presidential company from 1996 with a rating of 2-3 % (and he has won); also Putin began the first presidential company from August 1999 with a rating of 3-5 % and he has won too. Russia is an unpredictable country till now.
Alas, Russia has an unpredictable past till now - too turned black (by the Soviet historians) till 1917 (Tsar's Russia) and too turned white (by the Kremlin at last two-three years) after 1917 (USSR) - and this unpredictable past can induce an unpredictable bad future for Russia :(

I do not know, whether the monarchy with Romanov's dynasty will be restored in Russia, but the truth about Nicholas II should be restored.
I think, that modern Russian and foreign authors of books about Nicholas II should relate to "the Soviet stamps" about him with big caution.
I think, many at this forum will agree that Nicholas II has been defamed (by "an irreconcilable opposition") else at time of his life and that false myths about him have been hundredfold increased by the Soviet historians and that many of these wrong stamps are alive even till now.
I think the following five theses are most needing in objective consideration:
__1. Nicholas II was a man of weak will.
__2. Positive achievements of Russia in 1894-1914 have been made by famous clever ministers of his government (by Vitte and Stolypin) - and Nicholas II has prevented from their reforms more likely, than helped them.
__3. Nicholas II aspired to small victorious war against Japan.
__4. Nicholas II is guilty of awful events of "Bloody Sunday on January, 9, 1905.
__5. Nicholas II has made a mistake, having headed Russian army in August, 1915 owing to what Russia has ostensibly lost the war by 1917 and revolution began.
__6. Nicholas II has not undertaken sufficient efforts for prevention and suppression of revolt in Petrograd in February, 1917.
__7. Rasputin has strongly and negatively influenced on an acceptance of political decisions in Imperial family through empress Alexandra.
I think, these seven are the main false myths about Nicholas II. There are still other wrong stamps, but these seven are main, I think.
Certainly, I dont think that Nicholas II was the ideal ruler of Russia. He made mistakes and had some wrong ideas (for example, he was the anti-semite always; and other things), but I am going to expose these seven main false myths here.
Whether you count these seven theses the truth, or false myths? I would like to find out your opinion at first. See the topic:
Does Russia really need monarchy?
