Mer om en annan berömd Williaminoff. Generalen tror jag dog 1838.
Ur Women of Europe in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries:
In 1374 died Wassili Williaminoff the Tissiatchy or chief of the thousands. It is not easy to understand the precise position or the functions of this dignitary from the descriptions of the historians. He was a noble, but chosen by the citizens as their leader in war, and also apparantly as their representive or spokesman in time of peace, for he is compared to a Roman tribune of the people.
