- Why do you have a web site?
This is primarily a genealogy site for those
interested in Rurikid genealogy. However, we have also made this
web site to serve as a historical archive in order to help others
learn about the important roles the Gagarin Princes have played
in Russian history.
Current events in Russia have made this an appropriate time to remind
the world that the diaspora
has not forgotten the atrocities of bolshevism and the Russian Revolution.
We want to use this web site to tell the truth about Russian history
and answer the lies perpetrated about the monarchy by communism.
We love Russia, the Russian people,
the Russian culture, the monarchy and orthodoxy. This web site was
created with respect to all of these things.
- Do you want restitution of your properties
Yes. Despite the new freedoms in Russia private
properties and residences have not yet been returned to their rightful
owners. We are hopeful that restitution
will happen for all Russians. Until
then, the Gagarin family lives in exile from Russia and continues
to stand like the great oak tree.
- Are you related to the famous Russian cosmonaut,
No. The Gagarin Princes owned many fiefdoms
in Russia. Many serfs did not have surnames in Imperial Russia and
it was common for them take the surname name of the local prince
landowner. We believe that Yuri, the great Russian cosmonaut and
first man in space, is a descendant of those serfs.
