Scientists claim that almost every light-skinned European is a descendant or relative of at least one of the European royal houses. It can be assumed that virtually everyone in the European part of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus is a descendant or relative of at least one of the Russian princely families. So, it is possible that the figures, reconstructions of ancient women’s headwear, are our ancient grandmothers.
