The original seal ring is stored in the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. Undoubtedly, the most intriguing set of objects from the treasure pertains to the personal effects of Khan Kubrat. They are insignia relating to the high rank of their owner: a belt buckle of gold, an iron sword with golden hilt and scabbard, two golden mantle fasteners, and two gold bracelets. The most important artеfact among them is a ring bearing the monogram.The name of Khan Kubrat first appeared in Byzantine chronicles in about 632 when his tribe, the Unogonduri, threw off the Turkic oppression. He succeeded in uniting the Bulgar tribes in the lands north of the Caucasus, between the Kuban, the Sea of Azov and the Black Sea. For about three centuries the Bulgars roamed the steppes of today's Romania fighting with the neighbouring nomadic tribes. Huns, Khazars, and Turkic peoples invaded the lands of the Bulgars. And the Bulgar flag, a horsetail on a spear, was often seen cutting into enemy ranks during their raids into Byzantium in the Balkans. Khan Kubrat was the first to put a stop to the carefree pillaging of barbarian raids. This Bulgar chief from the House of Dub felt vaguely that in such crucial times the Bulgars were in need of unity. With foresight, patience and a statesman's will he laid the foundations of a military and tribal alliance. Its capital was Phanagoria on the Taman Peninsula. Byzantine chroniclers referred to it as Great Bulgaria. In this prototype of a medieval state Khan Kubrat tied kinship and tribal chiefs' ambitions into an involved but historically justified knot, creating the conditions for development and growth. With time the nobles came to understand the Khan's insight: only a state system similar to that of Byzantium might unite the Bulgar tribes. Kubrat made peace with the mighty empire and was awarded the title of patrician by Emperor Heraclius. With the title, accompanied by generous gifts, the basileus was hoping to keep the powerful Bulgarian ruler on his side. Peaceful relations with Byzantium allowed the Khan to defend the independence of Great Bulgaria against continual Khazar attacks. The state of Khan Kubrat, who is also mentioned as Kurt in the Name List of Bulgarian Khans, spread from the Kuban in the east to the rivers Donets and Dnieper in the north and west and to the Sea of Azov and the Black Sea in the south. There is a legend saying that as the Khan was dying, he ordered his sons to fetch a bundle of sticks and told them to break the bundle in two. When none of the sons managed to break the bundle, the Khan took the sticks and broke them one by one with his feeble hands. The sons understood their father's message: their strength depended on their unity. The Byzantine chroniclers Theophanes and Nicephorus wrote that Kubrat's bequest to his sons was to preserve the unity, "so that they would dominate everywhere and never become other peoples' slaves". The Khan died some time after 651 as a powerful and respected ruler.
