Question about house of phanar (history, not gameplay)

i dont really understand why the house of phanar can spawn on the map muscovy. the only reason i could think of is the connection between early russian aristocracy and byzantine noble houses … “third rome” etc etc.

is that the correct explanation or is there something i’m missing? like an actual phanar/greek/wallachian ruler or smth.


Russia supported the Greek War of Independence

this would explain russian royals on a greek map, but not the other way around i think. but thank you for your idea! :slight_smile:

There’s a whole section about Russian influences in the Phanariot article. There’s also the Callivazis Phanariotes who seem to have moved to Russia. There’s more links to Russia in the article, so I guess there’s quite a few things that link them?
