Hi Mario! I am glad to your new visit.
The two-headed eagle is present on the arms of many states . In Russia it has appeared on the arms in XV century. According to the official version - from Byzantium.
Greetings from Russia, Elena

Mario, You well know history. Yes, so it is written to encyclopaedias. Tsar Ivan III married princess Zoe. And it has brought with herself to Russia this state symbol.
