Avraamy Aslanbegov

Avraamy Bogdanovich Aslanbegov or Aslanbekov (Russian: Аврамий Богданович Асланбегов), (Azerbaijani language: İbrahim bəy Aslanbəyov) (1822, Baku – 7 December 1900, Saint Petersburg) was a vice-admiral and military writer of Azerbaijani origin [1] of the Russian Empire.


A convert to Eastern Orthodox Christianity,[2] Aslanbegov graduated with honours from the Naval Cadet Corps in 1837. He started his military career by serving in the Baltic Fleet. After obtaining his officer rank he began serving in the Black Sea Fleet. Aslanbegov participated in the Crimean War of 1854–1856 and fought alongside Pavel Nakhimov during the Siege of Sevastopol. In the late 1850s and the 1860s he continued to serve in the Baltic and the Black Sea, and sailed across the Mediterranean. In the early 1870s he was member of the committee in charge of developing the sea-borne trade. In 1879 Aslanbegov was appointed Commander of the Pacific Ocean Squadron. In 1881 he circumnavigated the globe from the Baltic through North America and Asia-Pacific to the Far East where he served until his retirement in 1882.[3]
