To V. P.                                                                                                                4-IX-91 R.

Valery Pavlovich,

I thank you for your letter of 30 August and for your greetings.
It is pleasant to see the progress of your Heraldic Society. I ask you to continue your useful work for the wellbeing  of our Fatherland.

Your scientific research “The Heraldic Genealogy of Tsesarevich Alexei Nikolayevich” impressed me greatly. I watch your activities with a keen interest and I value them very much. I like also the draft of the new Heraldic Letters Patent which you sent me last time.

I find interesting and acceptable your suggestion of being named St Andrew Principal Herald Master. I will charge my Chancellery with the preparation of the proper document. I hope to hand it to you personally at an official ceremony, when, God give, I will return to the Motherland.

I am sending my sincere regards to the Yegorovs!                                    Vladimir

Crowns are much more than those who are entitled to wear them. They are a symbol for the entirety of a cultural whole and the idea of enlightened statesmanship.

The modern CHR came to life in 1983 with the advice, consent and blessings of

H.I.H. The Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich, Head of the Russian Imperial House Romanov;

Commander John P. Brooke-Little, Esq., Royal Herald Master to Her Britannic Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Colonel Dr. David Pittman Johnson, U.S. Army (Retired) Founder and President of the American College of Heraldry. Photographs of these giants of Heraldry are depicted below, in the sequence they are mentioned above. 

​The above shown Greater Imperial Russian Coat-of-Arms was painted by the President and Founder of the Collegium Heraldicum Russiae (CHR) in 2003.


As far as the authors of this webpage were able to ascertain, the CHR is an extension in time of a much older Imperial Russian Heraldic Office of Arms; however, the historically more recent Russian College of Heraldry goes back to 1983. The gentleman who must be credited for this Herculean achievement of modern times is Commander Valery Yegorov, Master Mariner of the Russian Federation Merchant Marine (Retired), who, together with his

coat-of-arms, is featured below.

It is our pleasure and privilege to accommodate our German-speaking readers with the following expert quotation of Mr. Claus J. Billet:


"Das Heraldische Kollegium Russlands, das allgemein unter seinem lateinischen Namen COLLEGIUM HERALDICUM RUSSIAE (CHR) bekannt ist, wurde 1991 wiedergegründet und steht unter der Schirmherrschaft Seiner kaiserlichen Hoheit dem Großfürst Wladimir Kirillowitsch in seiner Eigenschaft als Haupt des kaiserlichen Hauses Romanow. Nach der Gründung ist das CHR korrekt beim Russischen Justizministerium angemeldet worden und ist heute die einzige legale (allerdings nicht-staatliche) Organisation mit dem legitimen Recht, die satzungsgemäß 'Wappen für Personen und Organisationen schaffen und registrieren und deren Verleihung veröffentlichen' darf."​

​A NECESSARY REMARK FROM THE ST. ANDREW PRINCIPAL HERALD MASTER:

The benevolent reader will notice that the present image of the personal letter from His Imperial Highness the Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich to Commander Valery Yegorov proves to be executed on the own Grand Duke’s stationery paper form, properly ensigned at the top with the Double-Headed Russian Imperial Eagle. The very body of the letter was typed out with the help of an old-fashioned type-writer (not a modern computer), while the initial salutation, the letter’s date of issue, and the final best wishes, together with the own Grand Duke’s SIGNATURE were handwritten. The whole high-wrought epistle is done in a very good and absolutely correct Russian language, which fact is extremely plausible for a man who had had to live all of his lifetime in exile abroad, very far from his Native Land.

The form of address, here “Valery Pavlovich”, which includes the FIRST name and the PATRONYMIC of the addressee, is a traditional Russian very polite form of addressing, used both in speech and in writing, just to emphasize respect and good will of the speaker or the letter’s author toward the receiver of his message.

Also remarkable is the Grand Duke’s manner to write down the date of the letter, here: 4-IX-91 г. The first figure denotes the day, then the month is designated by the Roman numerals IX (=9 =September), and the year 1991 is shown as -91. Plus final г. which implies the contracted Russian word год (year) with a dot at the end. This is also an old fashioned pre-revolutionary Russian method of writing calendar dates in letters.​
