Quick Bio: My name is Kir, pronounced like “car”. Read the “about” page for more trivia. Komnenos + Rurik = Komrik; Above is Mary Komrik, 1353 CE Normandy France. Family lore says her husband was the sixth great grandson of Andronikos Komnenos, last Emperor of the Byzantine Empire. She was supposedly 6’4″, liked to fight for GOD! and was a direct paternal-maternal ancestor and direct descendent of the Komnenos and Rurik dynasties. One bad chic. My fifteen minutes of “fame”. And it would figure: my entire family is matriarchal. The Rurik surname showed up later in Russia as “Roerich” and some in our family spell their name Komrich or Comrich. But they are all pronounced like Komrik. I took my mother’s surname when I was 14.
