All Armory on this page are by Khevron Oktavii Tikhikovich Vorotnikov, who freely grants permission to use all of the armory here for your use if you so desire ...

This is a place where you can look up branches by name, to find out a bit more about the history of any specific branch. In order to help, the branches are broken down by their current location (Principality, other Kingdom, etc.), and then listed alphabetically. If you see a link, you can find out more about that branch (at this time not all branches have a "known" history -- someone surely knows this information, and can help fill in the gaps!).

Some branches were active during the time covered by the Annotated History Project -- to see any events covered by this History, you need to go to the main page of this project, which has a year-by-year calendar, from which you can then see a list of events that occurred in any given year ...

Note that this is broken down by Principality, and the arms of all branches are (well, will be ...) displayed, if registered.
