Description

    Imperial Russian Emperor Nicholas I Commemorative Silver Table Medal
    Stamped Moscow, 1908-17

    The bust of the Tsar facing left wearing uniform and helmet of the Imperial Horse Guards after a portrait by
    P. Brusnitzin, 1859, surrounded by Russian inscription: Nicholas I, Emperor and Autocrat of All the Russias, Born 23 June 1796, Died 18 February 1855, within a raised laurel leaf border, framed, with ring for outer suspension ring-4 in. diam. with leather backing

    Nicholas I (1796-1855)


    If his older brother, Tsar Alexander I, reflected the temperament of his grandmother, Catherine the Great, Nicholas I bore the imprint of their stern father, Paul I. Having acceded to the throne during the turmoil of the Decembrist Revolt of 1825, Nicholas ruled his empire with an iron hand. Born with a soldierly temperament, the Emperor was literally heartbroken by his beloved army's humiliating defeat in the Crimea, and he died in 1855, not long before the war's end.
