Prince of Rostov
Prince Pavlin Bazovski- Lobanov-Rostovsky is a descendant of Russian princely family. The family Bazovski-Lobanov-Rostovksy descends from Rurikid Vassili Constantinovitch Prince of Rostov (1208-1238), a descendant of Yuri Vladimirovitch Prince of Suzdal and Rostov (+ 1157), son of Vladimir Monomakh Grandduke of Kiev. Vassili Constantinovitch is as well the ancestor of the family Kassatkine-Rostovsky. The Russian nobility (Russian: дворянствоdvoryanstvo) arose in the 14th century. Its members staffed most of the Russian government apparatus until the February Revolution of 1917. After the October Revolution of 1917 the new Soviet government legally abolished all classes of nobility. Many members of the Russian nobility who fled Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution played a significant role in the White Emigre communities which settled in Europe, in North America, and in other parts of the world. In the 1920s and 1930s several Russian nobility associations were established outside Russia, including groups in France, Belgium, and the United States. In New York, the Russian Nobility Association in America was founded in 1938. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 interest among Russians in the role that the Russian nobility played in the historical and cultural development of Russia has grown. The Russian word for nobility, dvoryanstvo(дворянство), derives from the Russian worddvor (двор), meaning the court of a prince or duke (kniaz) and later, the court of the tsar or emperor. A nobleman is called a dvoryanin(plural: dvoryane).
