The Princes Trubetskoy

The family of the Counts Trubetskoy is descended from Gediman, the Great Prince of Lithuania. The genealogy of the Princes of Polotsk and of Lithuania as described in the Barkhatnaia Kniga (Velvet Book) and in other genealogy books, holds that Gediman (or Ediman) was descended from the Grand Prince of Russia Vladimir Sviatoslavich, the Christianiser of Russia, who placed his son, Iziaslav, to rule Polotsk. From him are descended the Princes of Polotsk and of Lithuania. The fourth son of the Grand Prince Gediman of Lithuania, Olgerd, had a second son named Prince Dmitri Trubetskoy, from whom are descended the Trubetskoy family. They served the Russian Throne as Boyars and in other distinguished positions and were granted fiefdoms and hereditary estates. Several Princes Trubetskoy over the centuries gained fame for their family with their heroic deeds and service to the Fatherland, both military and civil. They were decorated with Orders and rewarded with other tokens of the Monarchs’ favour.
