The House of Tezdzhan-Smahin, is the ruling house of the Principality of Montescano. The current head of the House is HSH Sovereign Prince Dionisiy.


The House of Tezdzhan-Smahin claims descent from various royal and imperial dynasties. The royal descent of the House of Tezdzhan-Smahin is both through the paternal and maternal lines, with most of the descent coming through the marriage of Tsar Simeon II Bekbulatovich and his Rurikid wife Princess Anastasia Ivanovna Mstislavskaya (a great-great granddaughter of Grand Prince Ivan III of Moscow. The House of Tezdzhan-Smahin can also claim the Altan urag, meaning "Golden lineage" as a direct descendant of Genghis Khan through paternal and maternal lines.



Pavlov was the initial micronation the House of Tezdzhan-Smahin ruled over (as the House of Karapavlovič), with the 3 members of the House sending their declaration of independence in July 2012 starting a Principality on a small part of Antarctica. Soon after having declared the Principality, Pavlov was declared a Kingdom and remained relatively stable until it was Merged with Lostisland to form the Federal Republic of Lostisland. The King's cousin Lord Mirza Biessot du Hommer-Feschotte-Böçkün started a series of pro-separatist civil unrest and he was exiled from Lostisland soon after. The exile of his cousin eventually led to the Monarch stepping down as Prime Minister of Lostisland and unilaterally declaring the independence of the Republic of Pavlov. Following the proclamation of the Republic of Pavlov, the conflict expanded to an international level. Since the end of the Pavlov crisis, the then House of Karapavlovič had been operating a House in Exile, and numerous proposals were delivered by the former citizens to reestablish Pavlov. The House in Exile, and in particular the former Monarch, and the Federal Government of Lostisland developed amicable relations, however up to 14 September 2014 a compromise was never reached. On this day the then House of Karapavlovič asserted sovereignty over the antarctic claims of the former Grand Principality of Snezhanopol and the state was within minutes recognized by the Federal Republic of Lostisland.

While Monarch of Pavlov, Dionisiy the Head of the House, had been criticised by many for his Autocratic and (religiously) conservative policies, however he was being praised by the Pavlovian citizens. With them in 2015 - while still Grand Prince - deciding to grant to him the titles of Imperator and Augustus, he reformed the Grand Principality into the Empire of Pavlov. During his reign, Pavlov co-hosted multiple events in the russophone micronation community, a constitution was passed and national symbols were developed. In October 2016 he unified all territories under his reign (with the exception of Gaston) into the then Empire of Pavlov, with various states joining the Empire becoming Themes.

Dionisiy developed Pavlov up to a level that it could have been classified as a historical simulation of the medieval Rus principalities, Russia under Ioann Grozny, and the Roman Empire. as such, he reintroduced the Oprichnina and the Julian Calendar. He also officially supported the Flat Earth theory in his capacity as Emperor - something he later abandoned in 2018, and enforced many bans, such as on atheism, shaving, and communism.
