Representations of this experiences of past and current Russian prisoners’ ladies relatives in Russia are explored. The history of Russian national history glorify the a small number of spouses whom voluntarily made a decision to share Siberian exile making use of their husbands who had been penalized when it comes to anti-monarchist uprising in December 1825. A study of images of prisoners’ spouses demonstrates just how Russian social mythology has promoted a strong, stereotypical image associated with the ‘Decembrist wife’ once the epitome of marital love, devotion and sacrifice that is personal.
