Alison Laing is a Singaporean historian who was born in Scotland but is obsessed with the Russian history. Alison recently completed writing a book on one of the most popular Russians ever – Rurik the Emperor. I have read the book and here are some of the excerpts from Alison’s book.
Alison writes in her book that Rurik was both envious and fearful of both his brothers – Sineus and Truvor and that’s the reason why he planned the murder of them both with the help of the local tribes that belonged to the area that he captured.
Alison writes in her book that the name ‘Rurik’ is prevalent all around the world including in the Surya Vanshi aka Rajput tribes of India. Alison writes that the Surya Vanshis of India have a belief for over 1000 years that if they keep the name of their son – Rurik, he is going to be as virile, brave and valorous as Rurik – the founder of Kievan Rus.
Alison writes in her book that the claims that Rurik belonged to one of the lost tribes of Israel is a phony and funny one. Alison has written in her book that she is going to make an announcement on her blog that she will award the person 20000 Singaporean Dollar to the person who can prove that Rurik belonged to one of the lost tribes of Israel. Alison also has thanked pengeluaran sgp for putting food on her table while she was busy exploring the Russian history.
Alison writes in her book that there is no denying that Rurik suffered with megalomania and where the disease called ‘Megalomania’ has been responsible for ruining lives across the world, for Rurik – the founder of Kievan Rus, it proved to be an extremely beneficial thing rather.
