Syuyumbike – daughter of Nogai Khan, Yusuf Bey, great granddaughter of the founder of the Nogai Horde Idegey.
Time of her life in the Kazan khanate – 1535 – 1551 years. The fate of the Queen became a symbol of the golden age of the historical past of the Tatar people. Her image is covered by symbols, legends, myths and legends, it is linked to representation of the true beauty of the Tatar woman, motherhood and love of the country.
Image of Syuyumbike – a topic that is at a time like tsarist Russia, as well as in Soviet times, was closely intertwined with ideology. A landmark for the history of the Tatar people began in 1552, the collapse of the Kazan Khanate, which entailed for many centuries forgetting spiritual values. However, in Russian art, in the wake of interest in Russian history, appeared canvasses devoted to campaigns and conquests, bright personalities once existed on the territory of Russian khanates and states (V.G. Khudyakov “Queen Syuyumbike in captivity, leaving Kazan”, 1870, Ulyanovsk art Museum). In 1920 – 1930 years in the Kazan art renewed interest in national history (II Knyazkov “Entrance of Ivan the Terrible in Kazan Kremlin”).
The twentieth century was dictating different values and priorities until the end of the 1960s in the works of artists of Tatarstan national theme and national history
was veiled at ethnographism and facial features. Images of Syuyumbike tower – an architectural symbol of Kazan, Kasimov cityscapes (final resting lady overthrown) – finds its place in the beautiful works of A.I. Trapitsyn, S.O. Lyvina, V.V. Anyuta, R.A. Gilazova, G.L. Eydinova.
