Description: Znamensky monastery was founded in Moscow in 1631 in place of the Romanov clan houses, ranging in charge. In the courtyard stood a manor house church in the name of the Sign, and later, in 1679-1684 years in its place was built Znamensky Cathedral - the main church of the monastery. Icon of Our Lady of the Sign, in the name of which was built the old church, was considered one of the first iconic image of Our Lady and was very honored in the family of the Romanovs.
Historians call the two events that could cause the base of the Znamensky monastery. It could be the death of the nun Marfa (Xenia Ivanovna, the wife of Feodor Romanov and mother of Mikhail Romanov), or a cause of birth could serve as the heir Alexei Mikhailovich (1629), which is less likely. We only know that while in the generic Znamensky church received generous donations from a happy father. In the event of the monastery has played a role, and the fact that Patriarch Filaret (Feodor Romanov Nikitich), after the death of his wife did not want their estates to Varvarka moved to other relatives. Thus, in September 1631 Michael Romanov was founded on the sovereign court of the old convent and gave her tenure in land previously owned by the nun Marfa, and tribal house.
