Hermitage Museum Society Welcomes Paul Gilbert
Topic: Paul Gilbert

 

Paul Gilbert was the guest speaker at the Women's Art Association of Canada in Toronto last night. The event was hosted by the Hermitage Museum Society of Toronto.

Gilbert offered a powerpoint presentation in two parts. The topic of Part I (40 minutes) was entitled Far from the Fatherland: The Romanovs in Exile. Guests were introduced to members of the Russian Imperial family who escaped Russia after the Revolution. A series of slides were presented with discussion on the grand dukes and grand duchesses and their life in exile.

The topic of Part II (20 minutes) was entitled The Russian Succession. Gilbert discussed the Russian succession laws laid down Emperor Paul I in 1797. He went on to explain the legitimist  claims of Grand Duke Kirill Vladimirovich, Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich, and the current Head of the Russian Imperial House, Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna. 

The event was held in the Gignam Gallery of the Women's Art Association of Canada and was well attended by members of the Hermitage Museum Society, as well as supporters of Royal Russia.

Paul Gilbert has dedicated the last 20 years to the full time study of the Romanov dynasty. He is the founder of Royal Russia, a web site that received more than 1.2 million visitors in 2012, and the publisher and editor of more than 30 books on the Romanovs and the popular magazine Royal Russia Annual.

Earlier this year he was elevated to the Imperial and Royal Order of St. Stanislav, III Class in recognition of a lifetime of service to the Russian Imperial House.

The edict was signed by HIH Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna on January 7th, 2013. The date for the presentation ceremony is expected to take place in Russia later this year.

It is truly a rare privilege for non-Russians to receive one of the historic Imperial orders of knighthood.
