Sovereign Military and Hospitaller Order
of Saint John of Jerusalem
Russian Orthodox Oecumenical

Information as gained April 2002


In 2002, "Count" J.A. de Brett d'Avray issued an "Historical Resume" which is essentially a very confused history of the Russian tradition, and mixes in with the genuine details from King Peter's Order, and the suceeding self-styled Orders, and details of Pichel's myths to include the Order to which Avray belongs as a geneuine part of the Russian tradition - co-equal to the genuine exilic Russian Grand Priory.  Essentially this "Order" is a continuing fragment of the "Orders" which have resulted from the break-up of the King Peter Order. It is difficult to place this Order exactly. It may well have emerged from the Alexis d'Anjou-Dolgorouki Order (see Table KP12 of the King Peter Orders Grand Masters list), but in the confused "Historical Resume" he places the Order as in succession to some Order run by Prince Troubletzkoy. However as his "Historical Resume" ends with the "recognition" of "H.I. & R.H. Prince Alexis of Anjou Romanov-Dolgoruki, the Duke of Durazzo - Grand Son of H.I.H. the Grand Duchess Maria of Russia" as the Hereditary Grand Protector of the Russian Branch, this seems to confirm that it is one of the continuations from the Alexis d'Anjou Order.
