Merlo, a crop 2002г
The Sort of princes of Golitsynyh occurs from the Grand duke of Lithuanian Gedemina (XIV century) and intertwines with the noble families of Russia, Poland and other countries. It is said that Lev Sergeevich could tell without ceremony to Nikolay II something like: "our Sort, generally, ancient Romanovs, well it is fine, reign …"
Anyway, the whole gallery of the nice ancestors creating the Russian empire, always invisibly demanded and from Lva Sergeevicha, till the end of days of the collegiate registrar having a small rank, a sight at destiny of Russia as on the private affair. Golitsyny served as a support to Dmitry Donskomu, Vasily III, Ivan Groznomu, and the first emperor Peter the Great was brought up by Boris Alekseevich Golitsyn.
Father Lva Sergeevicha was soul of the Petersburg society, often met A.S.Pushkin. And in a plot of well-known "Queen of spades" the history about Sergey Golitsyn Natalia Petrovne's grandmother has laid down.
However, Lev Sergeevich has been long isolated from Russian culture, than it is possible to explain its fanatical patriotism in an old age. Only in 19 years it began to take lessons of Russian for receipt in the Moscow university, but till the end of days spoke with strong accent, and wrote only in French. Habitual for us on portraits rustic armjak and the mutton cap only compensated shortage of Russian in young years. In a family it communicated usually in French. In general its Russian, and it is frequent also obscene expressions sounded among aristocrats, for example in the Moscow English club is more often.
However, we will lay aside eccentricity and we will be set up on an aristocratic harmony by means of remarkable wine from bordosskogo grades of Merlo recently renewed on "Massandre"
