Sounds like what we know about TartaryFrom Higgetyflough on Redditt: All-Russias usually refers to the unification of the three Russias, or the three territories that claimed heritage from the Rus. Great Russia corresponds to modern day European Russia, White Russia is now Belarus (which literally translates to white Russia), and Little Russia is now the central region of Ukraine along the Dnieper River. These three Russias are what the tsars of Russia referred to when they were said to be rulers of all the Russias, however there are other Russias as well. Red Russia is now western Ukraine, in a region known as Galicia, and Black Russia constitutes the Northwestern part of Belarus along the Memel river.
All The Russias by Simon Franklin and Emma Widdis (Cambridge Uni): Russia is not and has never been a ‘nation state’, where the geo-political boundaries and the ethno-cultural boundaries coincide. More or less from the start it has been a multi-ethnic, multi-lingual polity – an empire (even if its rulers have not always presented it as such) – but with a strongly dominant Slav (Rus, Russian) population and culture.
Can you please source this legend, I'd like to know more. Keywords like "builders" and "defeated" trigger my interest.Also, while researching Tartary I ran across a legend that the steppe peoples of Tartar had regarding the ancient builders that had been defeated (doesn't say by whom).
Another one here.François Rochebrune - Wikipedia
Heres an interesting character. I found while reading about the January up-rising in Poland. Apparently captain nemo of 20,000 leagues under the sea was originally going to be a polish noble who's family was exiled to siberia during this. the uprising takes place at the time of the american civil war. Interestingly many so called zouaves fought on both sides in the american civil war. Just found his name interesting in light of this topic nothing more.
I wish I could tell ya. Have about 3 books I'm reading as well as internet research and I just don't remember where I came across it. I'll try looking again this week. Sorry.Can you please source this legend, I'd like to know more. Keywords like "builders" and "defeated" trigger my interest.
Couldn't find my original source but, while looking for it, I ran across this: secondary source. Hope you find it helpful. Writer is from the geographical area and his English is a bit hard to follow. Lists a coupla books that might be worth hunting for.Can you please source this legend, I'd like to know more. Keywords like "builders" and "defeated" trigger my interest.
