rynda. XVI-XVII century

In XVI XVII centuries with the Grand Dukes and tsars was situated the armor-bearer- bodyguards (ryndas), who accompanied monarch in the marches and the trips, and during the palace ceremonies they stood in the ceremonial clothing on both sides of throne. Term itself goes back to the earlier time. Prince Dmitriy during the Kulikovo battle "... great banner black povele to rynda its above Mikhail ondreyevichem Bren- kilohms to voziti" (Nikonovskaya chronicle).
 
When ryndas performed their duty in the palace, their armament composed large "embassy axe" (indispensable attribute of the audiences, which the Moscow sovereigns gave to the foreign ambassadors: hence occurs the name of axe). It was done made of Damascus steel and steel, was decorated by silver and gold incision. The handles of these axes were decorated with belts from the precious metals (sometimes, however, they bypassed with gilded copper), they were frequently covered with incrustation.
