The Romanoff double eagle crest was
the symbol of the Romanoff dynasty, rulers of Russia from 1613 until
the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917.
The Romanoff rulers had a huge impact on Russian history.Peter
the Great's reign (1672-1725) transformed Russia. He strengthened
the rule of the tsar and westernised Russia while at the same time
making Russia a power in Europe and greatly expanding Russia's borders.
Peter was the first Russian ruler to travel outside of Russia. While
touring Europe he learned about European dress and culture and warfare,
especially naval warfare. He learned many
trades, from shipbuilding to shoemaking.
Peter the Great wanted to make Russia
more modern economically and socially, while strengthening the power
of the state and of the tsar.
He abolished hereditary positions with the creation of the Table
of Ranks that gave people privileges based on their ability and
position within the Table of Ranks. Peter required all men to serve
In modern times the Romanoff Crest
is still recognised as a symbol of Russia's enduring strength and
success; the Constitution of the Russian Federation ratified in
1993 includes the Romanoff Crest.
