Royal Russia support a restoration of the monarchy in Russia, recognizing HIH Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna as the Head of the Russian Imperial House and claimant to the Russian throne.

The original article Who is the Rightful Heir to the Russian Throne? by Peter Broek has been permanently withdrawn from this site.

I am currently in the process of writing an essay on the succession question based on new and historical documents from Russian and English sources, many of which have been published in the last decade. The amount of material on the subject is voluminous to say the least. The title of my essay will be The Imperial Succession and the Future of Monarchy in Russia. It is my hope that my essay will assist in a better understanding of the succession question, while dispelling many of the misconceptions many Westerners have of the current claimants right to the throne, and why I believe that the monarchy has a future in Russia once again.

Please check this page for further updates. I anticipate that my essay will be completed and up on this page later this year.
