CANTACUZÈNE-SPERANSKY

The Russian Princes Cantacuzène descend from the Magureanu-branch of Romanian Cantacuzino family. Nicolae Cantacuzino (1761-1841), grandson of the founder of this branch Matei Cantacuzino, was a Russian general. His grandson Mikhail Rodionovitch Prince Cantacuzène(1847-1894) was created Count Speransky on 18-5-1872. The family was confirmed to be of princely rank by the Governing Senate of the Russian Empire on 29-4-1893.
The eldest proven ancestor of the family Cantacuzino is Dimitrie Cantacuzino (+ 1536) called Saitan, father of Mihai Cantacuzino (1515-1578) the ancestor of all present branches of the family. This Dimitrie could have been a son of another Dimitrie, mentioned in Hungary and 1474 and son of Manuel Cantacuzinos, despot of Magna Ragusa in 1466, a great grandson of Ioannes VI Cantacuzinos Emperor of Byzantium 1347-1358.
