Description

Some say that the double-headed eagle coat of arms was adopted in 1497 by Tsar Ivan III, who took the Byzantinian two-headed eagle and improved it with the arms of Moscow.

The Faberge eggs began with an Easter egg made for the czar that became a gift for his wife, Czarina Maria. The egg reminded the empress of her homeland, and so from then on it was agreed that Faberge would make an Easter egg each year for Maria. Faberge designed Easter eggs for another eleven years until Alexander III died. Then Nicholas II, Alexander’s son, continued the tradition.
