Around 1895, the Russian Empire reached its maximum territorial extent of about 22.8 million square kilometers. Alaska was still part of Russia. Nicholas I was to be the last Tsar of Russia to be crowned King of Poland.

Nicholas I of Russia

Nicholas I (1796-1855) was the third son of Paul I and Sophie Dorothee of Württemberg. Russia and Germany were in close relationship in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries through marriage of the nobility. The two nations are more related and closer than is in the Anglo-Saxon interest. If my research and intuitions about reincarnation are correct, then we should always take this into account in our future visions.

Nicholas I established an authoritarian regime when he took power. He was a military man and a bureaucrat. A historical parallelism that links him to Nikolai Patrushev, Vladimir Putin’s closest security adviser? Nicholas I was a hardliner and nationalist whose European alliances never worked. Nikolai Patrushev is also a hardliner, a nationalist, and his political activities repeatedly show a hostile attitude toward Europe. Three historical parallelisms in mentality, as well as its appearance and position, pointed out to me by the flow of mnemosyne.

Karl Robert von Nesselrode

Nicholas I’s foreign policy was shaped by the minister Karl Robert von Nesselrode (1780-1862). Nesselrode’s foreign policy was just as expansive as Ivan the Terrible’s rule. The Russo-Persian War enabled Russia to make further significant territorial gains. The Danube, the Black Sea and the Mediterranean became freely accessible to Russia under Nicholas I and Robert Karl von Nesselrode.

The appearance, character, mentality, interests, attitudes and positions of both Nicholas I and Robert Karl von Nesselrode show such a strong historical parallelism with Nikolai Patrushev and Sergei Lavrov that one cannot help but relate and compare them. Doesn’t the history of a nation perhaps continue over and over again as we observe how the same outstanding personalities shape a nation and its history? Do we not always see the same being looking at us, even if in detail the body may be somewhat different, but very similar, according to the character of the being, which writes itself into the flesh?

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky

In 1821, during the reign of Nicholas I, Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky was born, who is still considered the most famous writer in Russia. Dostoevsky described the political, social and spiritual conditions of his time in his novellas and stories. His influence on Western intellectual history is significant. Many famous writers and philosophers of a wide intellectual spectrum were inspired by his works. Dostoevsky adventurous life story and knowledge gained from it had something to offer almost every character.

However, Dostoevsky not only had a passionate gambler’s nature, which is why he sometimes lost everything he had, but at the same time felt close to the tradition of Christian monasticism. He was a contradictory being with a wide wingspan. Despite all his human weaknesses, being a Christian was for him an inner attitude, which atheist communist writers like Maxim Gorky would later blame on him.

If we trace the thread back to the beginnings of Russian Orthodoxy, we may better understand his religious disposition. Those who study the history of Russian Orthodoxy inevitably come across Patriarch Kiprian of Moscow. Kiprian was the first Russian hagiographer, also wrote down Old Russian legends and myths, and gained political importance as he propagated the unity of all Russian-speaking countries. Who would not recognize here the constant of religiosity, writing and political interest, which, as it is revealed to me by the flow of mnemosyne, unites in the person of Alexander Dugin?

The great thinkers of any nation must be respected. Respect for truth and free opinion forbid us to use other weapons than those of the mind, if we wanted to oppose their philosophy. That which is truer shall prevail, neither violence, nor lies and manipulation. Every nation has its priests, magicians, philosophers and teachers, the spiritual spearhead of a nation.

Radix Alexander Dugin

What could characterize more clearly the most famous writer and first hagiographer of Russia in a radix than a conjunction of the eagle, the fixed star Altair/Saturn/Moon/Mercury/Russia. He wrote down the Russian history, legends and traditions of the Russian saints (Altair/Moon/Saturn/Mercury/Russia), as well as in his novellas he gave the world readers (Altair) insights into the Russian soul (Moon) and mentality (Mercury/Saturn/Jupiter). With the asteroid Cupid on this stellium, he loves it when he can offer the reader something from his wealth of knowledge.

The gambling addict, spiritual and also knowledgeable in occultism, is indicated to us by his Jupiter square to Neptune/Acrux. Uranus on Regulus undoubtedly makes him a giver of ideas (Uranus) to those in power (Regulus). Since his rising lunar node is in exact conjunction to Vladimir Putin’s MC, it is his dharma, so to speak, his duty to support Vladimir Putin in his destiny (MC).

I recall Alexei I of Russia and his affiliation with the Romanov family in the context of Alexander Dugin (Russia’s History III). Alexei I died because he did not abjure the throne that was his by birthright, because, unlike his father, he did not want to open the Russian nation to the ideas of the Enlightenment, but wanted to lead Russia in the spirit of the tradition of Russian Orthodoxy. Ultimately, Alexei sits as a dispenser of ideas and inspirer of national conservative politicians in Moscow.

The conservative Orthodox branch of the Romanovs, as well as the tribe of the former Rurikids, leads Russia. One can conclude that Russia is a strong nation and united within itself. The founding fathers are in power and have appointed one of their best as president for life. We will explore whether this is equally the case in Europe, America and China in AstroPointer’s “History of Nations” series of articles.
