Ah, that is not problem, 'Belli Tsvetok' ( White flower, a diminutive), Crimea(if I recall correct, Yalta, Sevastopol), 1915, AF, Tatiana:

Now it is box for donation, most probably tuberculosis, since of 'White flower'.  ;-)

My mistake, sorry, year is 1914, not 1915. But still I am not sure.

Now 1911 signature:

Re the 1912 "Tsarevich Egg" :   See www.mieks.com/faberge-en/1912-Tsarevich-Egg.htm   I have personally seen this egg at the (Richmond) Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and other USA exhibitions, on several occasions.  It (and 3 others, I believe) is still "owned" by that museum and did not go the way of the Forbes Eggs.  Mieks alleges some controversy over whether the portrait that was sold with the egg is the original one.  When I first saw the "surprise" of this egg, I was struck by the badly deteriorating condition of the portrait (on ivory).  My understanding is that it has NOW been replaced by a modern copy.     AP

Re  Reply #8:   Since time for modifying my last post (Reply #8) has expired, I now add this as an addendum.   There DOES exist an original Faberge photo of this egg being cradled in its ORIGINAL stand.  The original stand has apparently been lost (probably before the sale) and the egg now has a different stand.  The photo of the egg in the posting by "greglov3", Reply #5, shows the REPLACEMENT stand. The original stand was much more graceful with a "bowing-in" of the legs, with the feet being a modified "Greek Key/Meander" design. (The three eggs shown by "greglov3" are all from the Pratt collection.)   Additionally, while it is impossible for an observer to see the interior of the lapis shell of the "Tsarevich Egg", I have read that rather than being carved from a solid block of lapis (as most say), that the shell is actually composed of carefully matched PIECES of lapis of the same source and color, superbly fitted and the major joints covered by the gold tracery work, as far as the design allowed.  I do recall, at close range, seeing some fractures in the lapis, but presumed that they were natural (and well may be).    AP

Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: Douglas on May 08, 2009, 02:05:34 AM
Both of these photos appear to have been taken onboard the yacht of the Dowager Empress Marie..... the 'Polar Star'.  She may have taken these photos herself.

The fussy design of the interior does not reflect the taste of Empress Alexandra as she expressed herself on the 'Standart'. 

 Also the woodwork  in these photos is consistent with the older 'Polar Star'.

New for me...not sure if there rare so I'm posting here.

The top two photos were taken onboard Polar Star.  Imperial yacht of the Empress Marie.

The bottom three photos taken onboard Standart. Imperial yacht of Nicholas II

These two yachts often traveled together acting as decoys.  They were purposely designed along similar lines.  The IF would travel over to the Grandmother's yacht for luncheon in the afternoon.

Here is Alexei being given some of the Standart sailors soup.  The point being that the Heir is not so good that he is above eating the food of the common sailor of the yacht.  There was a long tradition of the Tsar sampling soldiers food.

Looking down into the Standart engine room.  If the engines were running there would be warm air coming out of the open hatches.  It would be a good place to stand on a cold day.

Well done, Aglaya! That is one of my favorites. I believe it was taken in early August of 1916, since Z. Makarov left at mid of August. Bank near Dnieper River, Heir called 'Evpatoria' - like place at South Crimea.  And ones of his happier days he spent there, while visiting General Headquarters, at Mogilev. He used to rode motor - bike in fields around.  Sometimes with Igor Konstantinovch he ran into the water, or sailed with little Yacht along the River during summer days.

I believe same day -- it is labeled 'seredina augusta 1916' what means 'Mid of August of 1916'. I think many photos from that period can be found in IF's private Albums.

Alexi on the Standart.  They crew would overlay the teak deck with canvas or carpets, as we see here.  Behind him are the side cabinets that hold the mechanism for lowering the lifeboats.  He is wearing a cap that says "Standart" in gold Cyrillic lettering.

Attention   "Douglas" (and interested others) re Reply # 46 and "Douglas' " Reply # 50 :   These are not Derevenko's sons.  These are two of the cadets that from time to time accompanied the Heir on excursions.  The boys are Vasya Agayev ( with white cap ) and Zehnya Makarov (with black cap ).  For further reference/s, see my replies of  # 40 (December 11, 2008) and # 42 (December 12, 2008) under the subject:  "Photo-album Alexei, about 485 pictures."  If you need further documented reference, I can supply publication title.  Regards,    AP

Isn't his name Zehnya?  Those boys frequently visited Tsarskoe Selo, and during 1917 Makarov was at Tsarskoe Selo. Their fate is unknown to me. I only know, one old woman(from Mogilev), in one interview said she remembered Heir with cadets playing around Mogilev.

Do a little more research! Here is Alexei on board the Standardt with someone familiar, in 1906. I'd say its a perfect match. (http://www.alexanderpalace.org/palace/img/AlexeiNII1906.jpg)Also, Bulla was the photographer for the Imperial Family, and nobody would have DARED to give any other child a Standardt cap to wear...

Oh - I did a little more research as you wanted, and the photo of Nikolai and Alexei is in Love, Power and tragedy labelled as year 1908, not 1906, so Alexei would be four already. The child in the picture looks much younger than 4.

EDIT: Also thinking about it, isn´t  the famous footage of children playing on Polar Star from 1906? If yes, Alexei should look like this:

Oh, wow. That's really interesting.

Like Ally, I don't immediately see a resemblance to Aleksei, but the Standart cap and photographer is striking evidence. Also, the way his little ears stick out is certainly reminiscent of this photo of Aleksei as an infant:

In fact, as I look through my photo collection I'm realizing I have virtually NO photographs of Aleksei taken between the christening session in 1904 and the formals from 1905 (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Formals/BabyAleksei2.png) and 1906 (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Formals/AlixAleksei1.jpg). So perhaps that's why it's hard to recognize him at this very young age.

Rob, how were you able to determine the date as 1906?

I´ m going to be the unbelieving Thomas now.... if it really is Alexei, he doesn´t look like himself at all! :) In 1906 Alexei wore girl´s clothes and had curly hair.

I am a real Thomas - and I agree with you. That child is definitely not the heir

We looked at photographs of Alexei from 1906, 1907, 1908. Bob felt from his height it was probably late 1906, though could also be earlier 1907. His hair isn't curly as in the 1905- early 06 photos, but he is still rather small.

As I have said before, who ELSE would Imperial Court Photographer Karl Bulla take photos of wearing a Standardt cap, exactly like the one Alexei is known to have worn his entire life? We find many facial similarities to the 1907 photos on the Standart I posted above...Bob is a trained portrait painter, trained to see facial similarities.  If he is convinced, I'm convinced.  He knows more about the IF than anyone else I know.
Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: Thomas_Hesse on June 05, 2009, 03:50:06 PM
Do a little more research! Also, Bulla was the photographer for the Imperial Family, and nobody would have DARED to give any other child a Standardt cap to wear...

Please look on page 162 of Prince Michael of Greece's photobook. There is a bunch of boys dressed identically with the heir - including the "Standart" cap.
Also, many court members and their families were photographed by the Imperial photographers. That child could very well be one of a "Standart" officer - perhaps the son of Lili Dehn.
The dress/hat of the lady who - in your opinion - might be a nurse indicates, by the way, that the photo was taken in about 1910 or even later...
Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: Forum Admin on June 05, 2009, 03:58:05 PM
The photograph you describe on pg 162, has a mis-identificaton with respect to the other boys "dressed as sailors".  They are in fact part of the Standart crew, actual sailors in training, not "Alexei's companions dressed as sailors".  The Standart crew included young boys, and in fact the day that photograph was taken is described in Spiridovitch, who expressly mentions the young boys who were Standart crew coming ashore and allowed to play with the Heir.

The child in the Bulla photograph is much much much younger than the boys you point out in the 1913 photo  of Alexei.
Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: Thomas_Hesse on June 05, 2009, 04:10:20 PM
Still there is no doubt whatsoever that the imperial photographers didn't do portraits of the IF exclusively. And after all the boy's face is completely different from the heir's. I am astounded that Bob Atchinson seems not to have noticed the shoes and dress which seem quite ordinary. There are enough photos of the real heir for comparison...
I am sorry for your archive, though.........

Concerning the two "mystery" photos of the Heir that have provoked controversy here as to suspicions of identification:   Surely Bulla would have made more that one copy of each.  It is difficult to believe that each photo shown here is the unique and only one (not that they HAVE been represented here as such) in existence.  Let's see if this showing will bring forth the existence of duplicates or near duplicates.  Perhaps someone with good standing and recent good contact could ask GARF's opinion?     AP

Post by: Douglas on June 05, 2009, 08:57:24 PM
I agree with Bob A., the Bulla photos are Alexei.  Often boys faces change quite a bit after they turn 4 or 5 years old from how they looked at  2 or 3 years.  Boys  tend to loose their fat baby appearance, while the change with girls is  more gradual.

Also, I doubt that the Imperial court photographer would be taking a snap of some other boy wearing a "Standart" cap. It's most unlikely.

In the Bulla photo the heir appears to be sitting in a patch of springtime dandylions, possibly near the Lower Dacha.

I think it IS Alexei, but taken from a perspective we are not used to see him. The nose, the eyebrows and the mouth are just the same. And the cap in which you may read "Standart" in cyrillic alphabet is quite conclusive. There are photos in which childrens seems not to be themselves . I've said it before, but I have photos of me when I was a child that anyone could imagine - except my family, who already knows the fact - it is REALLY me...

Unfortunatelly I´m not convinced either. In my eyes the child´s face is completely different. If it really is 1906 (and it can´t be anytime "further"), Alexei couldn´t have changed THAT much from 1906 photoshoot.

Mr. Atchison knows for sure more about the Imperial family than I do, but hey, we all do mistakes. It may prove I´m wrong of course, but until them I´m keeping my doubts.

Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: nena on June 06, 2009, 07:20:52 AM
Thanks for photo.  ;-) I think correct tittle/word is - 'Ego Velichestvo....'. and many books labeled  boys to be Aleskei, most often misidentified.

1) 1905 photo session was taken in October/November.

He had curly hair by then, and in 1906 photo session. If we say this photo (http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/file0003_133.jpg) session was taken in 1907, it seems to be contradiction to me. Since FA posted one of him  on Polar star is labeled as 1907. only if he had hair cut, so then no more curly hair ( I mean , a bit less).

I believe this is (http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/Aleksej_na_jahti_Standart_1910.jpg) is 1907 also.


Russians labeled this one as August of 1907 on the Standart Yacht:

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/th_00001408_b.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/?action=view&current=00001408_b.jpg)
(Douglas may freely correct  if this is not correct)

Also, this was labeled -- 'St. Petersbourg, 1908' :

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/th_dm1_2.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/?action=view&current=dm1_2.jpg)

I believe this is not correct. Most likely 1907. But how, by 1907 his hair wasn't not curly?  I have always wanted to sort out - 1906, 1907 and 1908 photos of Heir Aleksei. Thanks in advance!

Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: Douglas on June 06, 2009, 09:38:25 AM
This was taken on the Standart.  Nena you are correct.

 You can usually tell the Standart because the side wall on the main deck was solid.  The main deck of the Polar Star had open railings painted white.  Sometimes when the children were small the sailors on the Polar Star would install canvas over the open railings as a protection.

As I understand it, the Tsar insisted on a solid wall on the main deck of the Standart because he didn't want any of the small children falling overboard.  I agree.

Thank you Admin for posting that montage of photos of the darling heir.  Yes, they are all Aleksey. My guess is that photos 2 and 4 of the montage were taken on the same day?  The parting of his hair is identical in both photos.

 I have read that there was some superstitious reason for keeping little boys in long girl like curls and dresses.  It may have been Biblical and related to when all of the baby boys were ordered killed in Jesus' day.

The only thing that is puzzling is the Standart cap. Had he not have it, I wouldn´t even think about a possibility it´s Alexei.

The second image is from Spiridovitch's personal photos, and he notes it taken as 1907. Clearly Alexei is wearing the exact same Standart Officer's cap, is exactly the same size, and no longer has curly hair., and he isn't dressed particularly "Imperial" now is he??..I'd say the evidence is getting much more conclusive (tho Bob thinks its all nonsense as clearly to him, the Bulla photos are Alexei.)

Thanks for the explanation, FA! true is, we see what we want to see.

But, that Standart cap contains something like crest on it -- almost in all Aleksei's photos, like this one is (http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/Aleksej_Finska_1908.jpg). I believe Romanov's Crest. Color was IMO, white, as same time sometimes dark - blue/black.

I respect all thoughts, and boy really resembles him.  ;-)

Post by: Ally Kumari on June 06, 2009, 01:57:53 PM
Oh Nena you´re RIGHT! The crest is on every Alexei´s caps - the boy in the picture doesn´t have one! That is also a clue, isn´t it?

I´m sorry my "motherly" eyes can see suvh differences between those children.... especially the nose.

But I don´t want to argue about this. You say it´s Alexei, I say it´s not. Let us keep our oppinion. Maybe one of us will be proved wrong one day, maybe we´ll never know.

Nena, I had noticed the small emblem on the cap in most Alexei photos, which is why I was so happy to find the Spiridovitch 1907 with Derevenko where the cap does not have the emblem, just as in the Bulla photos.

Secondly: in the image with Derevenko the Heir is obviously dressed for a swim - but still in linnen which was rather expensive in those days.

Post by: nena on June 06, 2009, 04:22:40 PM
In my opinion, in that Spiridovich's 1907 photo seems unlikely does the cap contain emblem, or not. I think in this one (http://s185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/AeksejmornariStandart.jpg), which was taken ca. 1907, also contains emblem.

Though I am not really sure about this one Aleksei's cap, Finland, July of 1908:

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/th_00001411_b.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/?action=view&current=00001411_b.jpg)

And I am also willing to believe that boy is Heir.

Post by: Sarushka on June 06, 2009, 07:13:26 PM
IMO, recognition of facial features is proving too subjective to be definitive, so I'm looking for other clues to help me decide.

In particular, the child's outfit intrigues me. Looking through my photos of Aleksei, I've noticed that all his sailor suits have stripes on the collar, and also sometimes the cuffs and v-shaped front placard. When he was a toddler, the hem of the skirt featured decorative striping as well:

(http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Aleksei/th_Alexei1.jpg) (http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Aleksei/?action=view&current=Alexei1.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Aleksei/th_balalaika.png) (http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Aleksei/?action=view&current=balalaika.png) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Standart/th_familyboat1906.jpg) (http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Standart/?action=view&current=familyboat1906.jpg)

A miniature sailor's pea coat like the one in this photo could cover the collar striping, but the skirt stripe still shows:

(http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Aleksei/th_MalAlexejnaStandartujpg.jpg) (http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Aleksei/?action=view&current=MalAlexejnaStandartujpg.jpg)

By contrast, there are no stripes at all in the Bulla photo.


Also, Aleksei's sailor collars always come to a point in the front, extending at least partway down the chest:

(http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Aleksei/th_M39.jpg) (http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Aleksei/?action=view&current=M39.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Aleksei/th_AlexeiNikolaievitch34.jpg) (http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Aleksei/?action=view&current=AlexeiNikolaievitch34.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Aleksei/th_album6page202mx.jpg) (http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Aleksei/?action=view&current=album6page202mx.jpg)

So far I haven't been able to find a photo of Aleksei in a rounded collar like the one in the new Bulla photos. I also can't find a photo in which Aleksei wears a dark sailor suit with an entirely white collar. Usually the collar on his dark suits was also dark, with the aforementioned border of white stripes.
Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: Douglas on June 06, 2009, 08:02:18 PM
This is in reply to Sarushka's post about uniforms.

The classic sailor uniform has it's origin in the British Navy.  It goes back hundreds of years.  The white stripes are called piping.  It takes a special foot on the sewing machine to apply this.  The square collar on the top or jumper is because the sailors wanted to keep their long greasy pigtails off of the back of the jumper.

The pea coat [pilot coat] is always double-breated and is traditionaly made of 30 oz. wool, dark blue or black.  The style is over 200 years old.

The cap that Alexei wore is called a tally cap.  The tally is the ribbon that goes around the cap. There is a loop in back that you thread the tally through so that it can hang down. The cap is usually made of cotton duck for summer and wool for winter.

The white uniform is for summer and the dark one is for winter.  Everyone in the Imperial Russian Navy would change color uniform on the same day.  

Most navies of the world use some sort of classic sailor suit and there is very stiff resistance to change this.

There are a lot of myths and lore about navy uniforms.  Not everyone agrees on various parts of it.  The U.S. Navy uniform when I was in the Navy was made of very high quality materials.  There are subtle changes over the years.  Some have worked out and others have failed. Today it  costs at least $2800 USD for all of the necessary uniforms of new Navy recruits.

As for Alexei, I doubt that he ever wore his early replica outfits more than a month or two, as kids grow very fast at that age.  I would imagine that the Imperial seamstresses could make a new uniform for him  overnight if needed.

Okay, I'll jump in here.  Think of the size of Derevenko vs. the size of that nurse--and people would have us believe these are the SAME child taken the SAME year?  Not only are the nose and mouth much different, the questionable child is younger and smaller--looks smaller than the heir at age three.  Even if some pictures were taken in spring and some in summer, he'd have to have grown a LOT in a few months.  Perhaps this child is around one and a half to two years old.  Did Alexei have any younger similar-looking cousins this could be?

Post by: Daniel Briere on June 09, 2009, 09:03:28 PM
Douglas : thanks for all your interesting posts and photos. A few remarks about 2 of your last photos :

The one captioned as « Alexei with the Standart detachment of Marines » doesn’t show sailors or marines from the Standart (although it probably was taken on board the ship) but rather Cadets from the Senior Class of the Naval Corps (called «Gardemariny» in Russian) who weren’t part of the Standart’s crew: they can be identied by their Naval Corps’ cap tally inscribed « Морской Корпусъ» (Morskoď Korpus) along with their white gold-braided shoulder boards with metallic anchors (which the Navy didn't have). Granted, they look quite similar to Guards' sailors but the latter had white piping on their collar & cuffs and wore either their own St. George's ribbon cap tally marked «Гвардейский Экипажъ» (Gvardeisky Ekipazh, more about it below) or the one from the ship they were serving on (such as the Standart). The young Alexei is wearing the uniform of the Guards Equipage with the  «Штандартъ»  (Standart) cap tally. These cadets couldn't then have suspected that they were posing with the future Chief of their Corps: in November 1914, his father named him Honorary Chief of the Naval Cadet Corps (henceforth known as «His Imperial Highness the Heir Tsesarevich's Naval Corps») and Alexei's cypher was added to their shoulder boards.

As for your photo captioned «  Father and son in their summer uniforms, they are both wearing the cross that is the Order Of St. Vladimir » , you are right about Nicholas II wearing the Order of St. Vladimir but wrong about Alexei. The Order had 4 classes, the 4th being the lowest. The one shown on both b&w & colour photos was for civilian or « ordinary » military service. For bravery on the battelfield, crossed swords were added to the insignia. Nicholas II did receive the Order (4th class) in 1892 for his « 25 years of military service » (it seems they counted time from his birth as he was enrolled in various regiments when he was born). Alexei never got the Order of St. Vladimir.

The insignia both of them are wearing on your photo taken on board the Standart has nothing do to with the Order : it's the regimental badge of the Guards Naval Crew called "Guards Equipage" (Gvardeisky Ekipazh).  This badge was created on February 8, 1910 for the Guards Equipage Jubilee. It was based on a Kulm’s Cross (Prussian Iron Cross) because the regiment had distinguished itself, on foot, at the battle of Kulm in 1813. The next year, alongside of Alexander 1st,  they were to « liberate » Paris from Napoleon. Since 1892, the Guards Equipage honorary chief was Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna. Alexei was enrolled in the regiment at his birth.

The crews that manned the Standart and other Imperial yachts (along with 4 escort ships) were taken from that regiment instead of the regular Navy. When Alexei wore an ordinary seaman’s uniform, it usually was from the Guards Equipage’s (the « Standart » St. George’s ribbon’s cap tally is a giveaway). On your photo, Nicholas II is also wearing the Guards Equipage’s uniform, as the badge shows. The only other thing that distinguished the Guards Equipage officers’ summer dress from the regular Navy was the shoulder boards’ red piping (instead of the black Navy one).

Daniel:  I do thank you so much for filling us in on the exact details of the uniforms and various medals.  Do wish that this site had the ability for me to correct my errors as other websites are enabled.

Also I enjoy learning from your posts, as you have a lot of information concerning the  intimate details of imperial protocol.

I have a question for you, Daniel.  The yacht Standart had various small boats.  Do you know and can you idendify the names of these small boats?  I have heard that they were named after the various Russian States...and Provinces.

First, adding to what I wrote about the Naval Cadet Corps : just noticed this uniform made for Alexei :

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v737/Atamanets/alex_palace_37.jpg)

At first I thought it was from the Navy (not the Guards’ Equipage which had 2 rows of 8 buttons and more ornate collars & cuffs) but upon closer inspection, I found out that it was an officer’s uniform from His Own Naval Corps (1914 pattern) as his crowned « A » cypher on the epaulettes shows, along with the white piping. I don’t recall having seen any photos of him wearing it although he probably had a photo session for the Naval Corps as they certainly would want to hang some photos of their new chief at the school building.

Yacht Standart : Douglas, we’re going off topic here, and you probably know more about the Imperial yachts than I do, but of which small boats are you wondering about? The 10 black & white various size canoes/life boats that hung on the sides? see plan here :

http://keu-ocr.narod.ru/Imp_yaht/pictures/33.jpg

Or the launchboats used to transfer people on board, such as those seen here :
http://forum.myriga.info/index.php?act=Attach&type=post&id=6027

http://navsource.narod.ru/photos/06/007/06007002.jpg

Or the various suporting vessels and escort ships (canoes, torpedo boats, small steamboats used by pilots, etc.) such as the one seen here ? :

Yes, we are off topic.  This should be on Transportation thread.  I was talking about the ten boats that hand from the davits on Standart.  There is a 1/4" scale model of Standart at the Naval Museum in Petersburg and they know the name of these small boats and launches.  

Thank you for the link about the various historical Imperial Yachts.  I had not seen that before, although I have seen the book they reference.  But many of the photos on that site are not in the book.  I was able to translate part of the page so far and look at the plans of the various yachts used by the Imperial family and relatives.  That is a good resource site. There are photos and plans  I have not seen before.

I did make a model of the Standart and I have the plans the later Marti [converted Standart to Minelayer, sad fate for a noble yacht] and Polar Star.  I had the plans of Polar Star sent to me by email from Moscow about ten years ago. Plans for Standart came from Maritime Museum Greenwich, UK in 1983  and Marti plans are from Russian model builders in Petersburg.

Douglas :

I remember having seen seeing scale models of some imperial yachts in St. Petersburg years ago at the Naval Museum. Don’t remember if the Standart was on display or not (think so) but in any case, its photo published in my 1997 edition of « Russkie Imperatorskie yakhty, konets XVII-nachalo XX veka » (Russian Imperial Yachts; late 17-early 20th centuries)  shows the boats still unpainted with no names on them. Did a bit of research but couldn’t find anything about them. BTW this book was published as a catalogue for an exhibition which was held in St. Petersburg and was suppose to travel afterwards in the West but, to my knowledge, never has. The book seems to have been reprinted in 2006 :
http://www.ozon.ru/context/detail/id/3040890/ perhaps for the 2007 exhibition at the Navy Museum.

Do you have photos were names can be seen on these boats? It would make sense to me they had a way to identify them (either by name or number). To find out their names I guess you’ll have to contact the Museum which celebrates its 200th anniversary this year.

I had somewhere fuller versions of both, but I can't find it right now. The last one was, according to A.V's label, taken at Tsarskoe Selo, in 1915. Men are French tutor, Gilliard and most likely Pyotr Petrovich, and his beloved spaniel, Joy.

EDIT: What a pity -- About the previous one you had posted before -- was it taken in 1915 or 1916? IMO, if we could guess, that was the first Aleksei's arrival at Stavka, then it would be Autumn of 1915 -- October. Since, first Aleksei's military review was in Rezhitsa, on October 2nd.

It looks like to be autumn/winter, and those uniform Alexei wore in 1915, rather to 1916. I know Aleksei spent whole spring at AP in 1916, after recovering dangerous nose bleeding in November of 1915 and then IF began doing tour to South Crimea, in spring the following year. AF, A and Nicholas arrived at Stavka in May of 1916.  My upshot -- photo was most likely taken in late of 1915.  ;-)

I don't mean to be unkind but just looking that fellows photo I can see why she might refuse him.  He looks like he is way below her class. She would have done better with someone from the northern European  dynasties.

Plus his family was so pushy about a possible match that it just was a dead deal from the start.  Alexandra was most annoyed by the whole idea.  Alex would have preferred someone from Denmark or Germany for obvious reasons.

Yes, I should have said "Alexandra" and "Olga".   Also, we know that Alexandra was  repulsed by anyone who would portray crude ambitions and behaviour.   In the famous photo of the occasion of the visit we can clearly see that Olga is very distressed by her facial expression.   She looks very unhappy to say the least.

Thank you all for clearing up this for me.

 Therefore,  it appears to me that this photo was taken onboard of one the paddle yachts.  They are posed on one of the narrow decks aft of the paddle box that appears to the right, with the little window that looks into the mechanism of the paddle wheel  machinery.

Overhead you can see the curved roof of the salon cabin.  To the right is the railing with it's safety netting in place. We can also see the curve of the rail and deck that follow the typical shape of the yacht.

Thanks, nena.:) I was only sure that's not Aleksandra. ;)
 I don't know much about Aleksei's nurses, I saw only one picture with Vishnyakova and Tsarevich before, taken in Germany.

Post by: nena on December 07, 2009, 06:45:21 PM
You're very welcome. However, Empress fired Vyshnyakova from Court in 1911, due to rumors and controversies with Rasputin. I don't know how did Alexei react.

In fact, that is cropped and very dear photo to me. Near him is Anastasia, and I have fuller version of the one. It appears in the end of one Romanov book, while I am not certain which one. It was taken in 1915, at Tsarskoe Selo.

My doubts are confirmed, I figured out that lady in this photo IS Alexei's nanny, who was suspended in 1911 by the Empress (due to the rumors relating Rasputin), Maria Ivanovna Wishnyakova (With Derevenko in 1908):

How many pages inside ? 10 ? 20 ? 30 ?
How many hours spent JUST TO VERIFY ONE PHOTO or just to find ONE INFORMATION ? 1 ? 2 ? 3 ? 4 ? More ?
And finally, how many people can keep in mind everything which is published here ? 0.

Sorry if I seem to be too nervous but let's be a bit serious.
An historical discussion board is necessarily doomed to redundancy, but also to duty of memory (that's maybe the most important).

I don't have to imagine: there are 14 photo threads dedicated to Aleksei Nikolaevich. I know because I cleaned them up, merged them, and made an index last April.

If you have a question about a particular photo, please post it here:
Question about and/or Help with Picture(s)

For text, the search function near the upper right of each page can help you determine whether a topic has already been discussed.

Since last spring, the moderators have spent many hours reducing clutter across the forum by deleting duplicate photos, and merging duplicate topics so we're rather sensitive about redundant posts. Please help us keep the threads tidy!

Alexei in 1913 Crimea:

"The czar's hemophiliac son, Alexis, 9, was unhappy over missing a picnic, so his father drove him up into Crimean hills. They found some snow, which the Czar plumbed with a stick. Alexis's tutor, Pierre Gilliard, and a cosack guard went along".
Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: nena on May 25, 2010, 03:12:40 AM
New for me. But it was actually early 1914, where snow still could have been found on the Yaila mountain/Red Stone in Crimea. (Giliard states so) IF visited Crimea in 1913 in autumn, where you can't find snow, due to the warm climate in Crimea. There are several more snapshots from the same event. I think they are available in Marvin's '' Nicholas II -The Last Tsar ''. (from 1974). See : http://www.alexanderpalace.org/palace/books.html?sku=21

Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: nena on July 15, 2010, 05:44:28 AM
Could it have been taken in Finland's skerries, approx. 1912? I mean it because I think that Derevenko is behind him, and I remember seeing a footage of Alexei on the similar plank near the coast. And Aleksei was driving the little boat with his company. Though I don't see the woods in the backgrounds, typical for Finish coasts, but it could be because of old photo's date.

I'm leaning towards 1908 or 1909. The Tsesarevich looks more like a 5-6 year old boy in the pic.
Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: nena on July 15, 2010, 11:10:50 AM
Yes, that is what I had thought at first. Highly possible, though I have never read any reliable caption about that photo. The color of the photo reminds me the photo to have been taken in the late 1900's.  Remember the one of Tsarevich with Derevenko near the Finish skerries in 1908...And they used to be on the excursions every year, going from June up to late summer, ending in the fall at Livadia.

It's no big deal if the photo you're referring to is many posts back. In that case, quoting a photo avoids confusion -- as in post #202. But if you're commenting immediately after a photo has been posted (as in posts 195 and 203) then there's no need to quote the photo. Make sense?

The picture you posted TsarevichAlexeifan13 is actually of the Danish Royalty. The people in the pic is King Christian IX holding Prince Frederik, on the left future Frederik VIII, and on the right is future King Christian X. So, it is 4 generations of Kings of Denmark. :)

The pic has been posted before in the AP site saying that the baby is Tsesarevich Alexei. In my opinion it is unlikely. I hope someone can find the attendants during Tsesarevich Alexei's christening to see if all the Danish relations were there.

Re Reply 210 and "Condecondess":  I believe your comments to be correct, "Condecondessa."  It seems that this photograph is often cyclically mis-identified.  Your point about confirming the presence of the Danish relatives at the Heir's christening is well taken! To have such a number of the successive Danish generations present would, in my opinion, potentially be "top-heavy" in representation. The ultimate confirmation of the personages shown could undoubtedly be obtained through contact with Her Majesty's Royal Archive Division/s in Copenhagen.     Regards,  AP.

Thank you for the response to Posts 210 and 211, and for including your source.  I am under the impression that the particular volume source could be wrong, as I have seen this photograph's identification challenged over the years. Dealing specifically with the figures on either side of the undisputedly HM Christian IX, to me, certainly that is the future Danish Christian X on the right (wearing Danish decorations, including the Collar of the "Order of the Elephant"), as opposed to "Prince Heinrich of Prussia" and/or "Ludwig of Battenburg." Also check (against later photos) the chin configuration of the left figure, IMO, correctly the future Frederick VIII. Certainly the Royal Danish Archives would be helpful in the matter, if one wished to pursue it further.  I wonder what other books hold this same attribution, as the photo doesn't appear that often in compilations regarding the last Russian IF per se ?  Regardless, it's not an "earth-shattering deal," thus I hope that you will continue to enjoy your volume!  Regards,  AP.

Thank you Alexander Pavlovich for your comments. When I find time I will inquire about the pic to the Royal Danish Archives.

Tsarevich Alexei fan 13, I too have the book where you got your pic from, and I call it the giant book since it's so big and thick. Before I was a member of this forum, my knowledge was limited to the books I read concerning the Russian Imperial Family. If you read more threads in this wonderful forum, you'll be able to compare what you read from your books and the facts and opinions presented here. Keep in mind that when the Nicholas & Alexandra Exhibition book was published, the materials were fairly new to the archivist themselves. So just because they found it in their archives, they assumed that it was the Tsesarevich Alexei the three Danish Knigs were holding. ;)

Alexei along the Dnieper River, on the sand, near Mogilev, summer of 1916 - definitely! Please, in the reference to the place, I'd suggest to call it Mogilev, since, IMO, 'Stavka' is an abstract noun and it's synonym of Russian General Headquarters.

It depends on the sources. I have never seen t full. Some say it was taken at Livadia in 1909, while some say about Germany in 1910. I am agreed that it was taken at Crimea in 1909.  Background is bit weird to me.

In Russian "Zubr" means a bison

'Żubrówka' - it's written in Polish.

in our language it means both a kind of grass AND a vodka distilled from rye.

It was first made in the region of Poland and Belarus, from the beginning of the 16th century. The name comes of course from 'żubr', which means a wisent - but this word is also used in Russian. The interesting thing is, the wisents live here in Poland only in Białowieża, where the tsars used to spent their free time - and one time Alexander III decided to take some of the wisents to Gatchina, where they lived in the imperial forests :)

SO SORRY for the offtop, it would be great if my info helped anyone :)

Magdalena, Alexei called his cat in Russian: Зубровка = Zubrovka

Zubr (Зубр) is indeed a bison in Russian.

Regarding the alcohol, I do recall that the Polish vodka bottle has a bison/Зубр/wisent on the label and contained a blade of bison grass.

Thank you very much for your additional information. It ties in things nicely.

no worries :) as I said, the word 'zubr' is both in Polish and in Russian, means the same but is written a bit differently, someone mentioned the 'Żubrówka' spelling (which is pronounced nearly the same as 'Zubrovka'), so I wrote something more about it:)

anyway, I wonder if Alexei's Zubrovka was named so after the animal... highly doubt that there is any other possibility to be honest :D

Aleksei   swimming in the Dnieper with his cousin, Prince Igor, son of GD Constantine Constantinovich.I've always found this photo touching...the two boys having such fun...both passing two  years later. One can see bruises on Aleksei and  Prince  Igor is displaying a fine example of what I call the " Romanov foot" ...many of them had amazingly long feet!

This is a question I've always been curious of, does anyone know the water temperature of the Dnieper river in the summer time? Approxiamtely during the time the above pic was taken? Is it as cold as the water in Finland where the last imperial family spent their summer vacations?

Thank you Olgasha for your wonderful post.

Yes, this is Polar Star.

Indeed...I'm scanning from that one lately. This is one of four smaller photos on that page. I was wondering about that boat in the background . Do you mean it's a torpedo boat? ...and sure it's the Standart, that's the spot everyone comes  aboard on ... plus the closed railing etc.
Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: Condecontessa on January 08, 2011, 03:50:09 PM
Yes, torpedo boats. In the book, Nicholas & Alexandra by Robert Massie, "the yacht was never without an escort of navy torpedo boats anchored nearby or cruising slowly along the horizon."

I'd like to think how Count Grabbe captured the pic of the tsarevich......did he say "Please look at the camera" or he just captured the heir at that moment without saying anything to him?  ;)

I agree. imo it's Olga because of those cheek bones...and the body position is quite characteristic . It's an interesting  a picture isn't it?
It says alot with those guards looming and the circular hall in the background. There's  wise range  of human emotion displayed here.
That looks like  Gillard  behind and to the right of the Tsar . Quite a picture . They are breaking the ice like always...but how different
it all is.

For me it is Tatiana. Olga was too ill at this period,or just revovering, we don't see her on those "breaking ice" pictures for 1917. On the contrary Tatiana is there on several pictures (at the bridge and other).

Excellent detective work!

It makes sense this would be of that series...and now Gillard confirms it. Thanks!

Thank you for posting these -- I have only seen the first one, I guess it is from winter of 1911, and another one was taken at Mars' field, Petrograd.

It's in this book's  photo section . It's pretty small so I scanned it to be larger. I guess Joy was extra naughty  that day lol!

Re Post # 395:  For completeness in identification of the third photo in Reply # 393, the two youngsters sitting next to the Heir are his often companion-cadets. On the extreme left of the photo is Vasya Agayev, and next (with a towel/cooling-off cloth-like object draped over his head) is Zhenya Makarov.  Regards,  AP.

I'm pleased if these are not often shown ! ;)

It can be interesting to make research on google or others using Cyrillic; for example :
Алексей Николаевич Романов for alexei
Ольга Николаевна Романова for olga ...

That's how I found the pictures !

But she just looks like in that picture with anastasia,m where her little daughter has a bandage in her leg. There are also photos with maria in that session. It seems they were taken in a summer evening, probably 1909-1910, alix has already her hair down ready to go to bed, and the two youger girls too, has ruffled hair and wear nightgowns.
I would like to post a url for it, but in this moment i just can't fin it in my huge folder O_o

Actually I believe those were taken, like just a little bit after waking up... probably hence why the Big Pair look surprised though Olga kind of looks annoyed to me! Could someone clarify, i don't wish to give the wrong info on what time it possibly was!

Yes. Those two were definitely taken at the same time, at Peterhof.


However, the photo burger queen posted of NAA was taken at the old palace at Livadia.

Relative to Posts # 425,426, 427, and 428:    Just some basic research will answer most of your questions relative to the "second picture---the Heir with "Russian Generals probably...."   If you consult Marvin Lyons' 1974 volume, "Nicholas II," (which, if you don't have, you can request through InterLibrary Loan), you will find a full page reproduction, # 221 on Page 156,  complete with identifications.  There were NOT just ANY "Russian Generals," they were a deputation being received by the Heir from the Ataman Cossack Guards Regiment, of which he (the Heir) was Chief. The officers are thereafter named, with their titles/duties.    AP.

They are Cossacks: a Captain, Count-general, and a Senior Colonel.  It is a well-known photograph (unlike controversial Photograph # 176 0n Page 134 of same volume).   Regards,  AP.

A photo like that brings home this young man's suffering even when well. Who would not rather being doing something besides being encased  in this mud pack? He looks like he is thinking of all he cannot do , at least for that afternoon,  while enduring this treatment.

Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: nena on April 03, 2013, 05:40:47 PM
I think that it was taken at Tobolsk -- see the shape of the fence behind the Heir -- it matches with the fence's shape at Governor's mansion at Tobolsk.

I think it was taken at the same time as this:

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Zarobljenistvo/14-1.jpg)


I tried to find any photo of the similar gutter seen on the roof on the photo, but I had bad luck, though all Tobolsk's houses had the similar gutter as the one in the photo. Back in 2006, when I first saw the photo on AP, cropped, it was labeled to have been taken in February 1918 at Tobolsk. Also, the nuns visited the Governor's mansion during the IF's captivity.

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Zarobljenistvo/th_nikgirlsroof.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/user/nemanjapr/media/Romanov/Zarobljenistvo/nikgirlsroof.jpg.html)
(Notice the shape of the gutter -- top right and fence's shape, bottom right).

I have not any evidence to prove that it was taken at Stavka -- Trough winter 1915 Aleksei went to visit front line, he wore different outfit (mostly his uniform and cap, not winter coat, or winter coat combined with cap) and after severe nose-bleeding in December in 1915, he went back to Tsarskoe, to be back at Mogilev in May of 1916, after he recovered. During late 1916, the Heir spent his time mostly indoors, studying. This one was taken in very late December of 1916, before leaving Stavka:

Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: blessOTMA on April 06, 2013, 10:18:08 AM
Never saw it fuller OR better! Beautiful ! Thank you Ally!
I vote Tobolsk. I wonder if he got to know  the nuns  who brought the extras for him. I don't see why not.
These two seem to be warmer toward each other  than one would be with just anyone  performing an office ...
The archery photo always struck me as odd since he is aiming at the front of the house if not the front door !

oh wait a moment, there is a  fence post design  behind the Heir that reminds me of  Tobolsk .

This may be proof that the each member of NAOTMAA took the photo of another member at the same photo session, which could mean that each one of the IF member had at least one photo of another one in his/her album:
(https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc1/t1.0-9/10288783_692832930779804_7811279095157591952_n.jpg)(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/2b460be3.jpg)
What I wanted to say -- these two photos were taken by at least two persons at the same time! ;-) And could be found in OTMA's and AF's private album, for example.

Photo credit goes to L.Mabee's site FrozenTears. (The first one).

With Petrov, 1913.

I think this is in the corridor outside Alexei's rooms. Compare with these photos from the similar corridor on the other side of the palace, specifically, the windows above the door.

It's actually the same man. According to Shawn Kailian on his Alexander Palace Facebook group page: "...this man went by the name "Al Chromium" that is how Google Chrome translates it as. He was part of the NKVD and this photograph was taken in 1938 at the Alexander Palace when it was used as a sanatorium for the NKVD. It is from the personal archive (though made public by courtesy of www.tsarselo.ru) of Anna Larina. This was her grand-father."

Presuming the caption is correct. We all know how often they aren't.

I don't know the interior corridors well enough to differentiate between the two palaces, but these photos certainly look similar enough to make me wonder.
Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: EmmyLee on May 12, 2014, 05:03:01 PM
I was looking at some photos of corridors in Livadia on http://livadia.russian-women.net and none of the doors are painted white. Maybe they were when the Romanovs lived, but I'm thinking they probably weren't. So I'm leaning towards the caption being wrong, as Sarushka suggested.

You are right, due to two reasons:  there is even Aleksei's photo from that session (on the ground with Joy) that he signed as '1915'. I can't find it right now.
                                                   The same photo appears in Empress' 1915 photo album.
Such great session, I dare to notice.

I read in a book that a WWI photo of Alexei with Joy was published as a postcard, I've never seen a scan but I believe it must have been one of these. Interesting to hear about the signature!

I still can't find it. :-D

Nice photo I have found - Alexei with Derevenko (and probably his sons or local boys), Massandra, Crimea, Yalta, May of 1912:

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Aleksej_Derevenko_Mesendra_Krim_maj_1912_zps9bef6b28.jpg)
---------------------------------------------------------------------




Matushka, how about these -- he is wearing his medal(s).

Possibility 1: these were taken in the same park but in 1916, probably in spring, before leaving to Stavka in May:

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/th_0571fe56.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/user/nemanjapr/media/Romanov/Aleksej/0571fe56.jpg.html)(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/th_LeskeleTsarskoeSelo1915-fuller.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/user/nemanjapr/media/Romanov/Aleksej/LeskeleTsarskoeSelo1915-fuller.jpg.html)

Possibility 2:   Those with medals were taken in 1915 before he got  St. George's medal , since it is labeled as '1915' in Empress' album:

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/th_Carsko_Selo_1915_1914_zps5b2ad9a0.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/user/nemanjapr/media/Romanov/Aleksej/Carsko_Selo_1915_1914_zps5b2ad9a0.jpg.html)

What do you guys think? Were both sessions (with the medals and without them)in the park taken in 1915 or in 1916? If the medal is not St. George's, most probably those were taken in 1915, as often labeled to be.

Post by: spoofs on June 14, 2014, 02:46:33 AM

Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: matushka on June 14, 2014, 01:42:58 PM
I would say, Nena, it is 1915. Alexei looks smaller in comparison with pictures of 1916 (near the Dnepr in July or August, for example). Then, I am convinced there is the St George medal among these. Perhaps Daniel Briere or Ann/Kalafrana could help us with this matter?
Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: nena on June 15, 2014, 06:53:05 PM
If he wears St. George's medal, then those (with medals) were taken in 1916, since he received St. George's medal on October 25th, 1915.

What am I trying to say?

IMO, this session (no medals) was taken in Tsarskoe Selo in 1915:

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/th_2b460be3_zps3c4f748b.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/user/nemanjapr/media/2b460be3_zps3c4f748b.jpg.html)(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/th_10288783_692832930779804_7811279095157591952_n_zps74fa2a23.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/user/nemanjapr/media/10288783_692832930779804_7811279095157591952_n_zps74fa2a23.jpg.html)


But this session (with medals) could have been taken either in 1915 or 1916:

If that photo was taken at Tobolsk in late 1917, or early 1918, which I believe so,  the woman can't be Ella.

You're right, Nena, if we can be sure that the site was Tobolsk. I thought it may have been Mogilev on one of Alexei's visits there. He wore his military coat there too, though I believe it's more likely Tobolsk.

I think that it is always great to see new photos, and I also like to add some date, place and little story about it. (If possible)

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/th_tumblr_nihzbs9V5t1s8tajho1_500_zpse9kjtchd.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/user/nemanjapr/media/Romanov/tumblr_nihzbs9V5t1s8tajho1_500_zpse9kjtchd.jpg.html)

Date : October 5th, 1916
Place: Stavka, at Mogilev.
From Alexei's point of view: The deputies of the 1st Volga- Tersko Cossacks troops came. I put on the uniform which was presented to me, and I was photographed with the group.
(You will notice that all of the four GD's were also photographed at the same balcony - there are photos of them wearing white dresses and the hats)

Now we have clearer image of that day. ;-) Also, the photo credit goes to Tumblr.com, no copyright infringement intended.

Is it safe to presume this was taken after the abdication? If so, it contradicts Vyrubova's story about Derevenko's betrayal — Anna V. was long gone by the time the children were well enough to go outside and help break up the ice.

Important observation there Sarushka. I have long been of the opinion that Vyrubova's claim of Derevenko's betrayal as one of pure rubbish. The question then is when in 1917 was this picture taken.

I believe Nicholas spent most of January and sizable portion of February in Tsarskoe Selo, yes? He didn't travel back to Stavka until the latter portion of February if memory serves. This photo could easily have been taken prior to then which means it's before abdication and also before the children were ill.

I remembered that a low quality version of this photo was discussed before and found the thread (http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=1251.495). nena posted very interesting information there:

Quote
Nicholas II' diary, April 1st, Saturday (Old Style):

'' ...During the day, we began breaking the ice near the bridge; Tatiana, Valya and Nagorny worked..." He mentioned breaking the ice almost the whole April. So the official begining of breaking the ice would be April 1st 1917, since he wrote 'today we began breaking the ice...'. The word 'ice' (Russian: led) is also mentioned on 3rd, 4th, 6th, 9th 23rd and 24th April. I found  the Tsar's entry on Anna Vyrubova's arrest , it is 21 March and he afterwards mentions breaking the ice for the first time, on April 1st.

The name 'Derevenko' is mentioned only twice, in August and September and is reffered to the surgeon Vladimir Nikolaevich Derevenko and his son Kolya.

Also, we should believe that breaking the ice hadn't begun before April 1st. So, the photo was taken after 21 March (OS).

The snow has already melted from the higher ground in the photo. Whatever happened to Derevenko, this looks like evidence that he was still with the deposed imperial family in April.

Post by: matushka on February 18, 2015, 01:51:21 PM
There was no betrayal. Anna's story is untrue. We discussed this a while ago, I don't remember where. Derevenko stayed with the family until June, i think.  Then he was asked to leave because he was lot honest on a price. But he stayed in contact with the teachers and was waiting for the time he could go to Tobolsk. When I will find time I will try to find more precise information.

I have no doubt that you are correct. It's good to have visual confirmation as well.
Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: matushka on February 19, 2015, 05:46:36 AM
Yes, it is, indeed; an excellent confirmation! You can have a look on the russian wikipedia page for Derevenko: https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%94%D0%B5%D1%80%D0%B5%D0%B2%D0%B5%D0%BD%D1%8C%D0%BA%D0%BE,_%D0%90%D0%BD%D0%B4%D1%80%D0%B5%D0%B9_%D0%95%D1%80%D0%B5%D0%BC%D0%B5%D0%B5%D0%B2%D0%B8%D1%87
The information is done without any analysis, one thing after another, but there are interesting points. I read an article about Derevenko, a few years ago and the most precise parts of the wikipedia page come from this article.
After all, it is possible Derevenko's behaviour was not excellent after the revolution. But he stayed with the family and was appointed to the tsarevitch, that's a fact.

Is the second sailor on the picture K. Nagorny? And the boy? Derevenko's older son Alexei, or Kolya Derevenko (the doctor's son)?
Title: Re: Aleksei Photos III
Post by: Rodney_G. on February 20, 2015, 12:40:53 AM
The sailor in white is Nagorny. I think , but am not sure, that the other boy is Kolya  Derevenko, Dr. Derevenko's son. I thought sailor nanny Derevenko's oldest boy was somewhat younger and smaller than the boy in photo. It would help to have photos handy of the Derevenko children,  all of them.

Also, at this time after revolution and Nicholas' abdication and arrest, and considering  Derevenko's status as a sailor , and Vladimir Derevenko's status as a doctor, it seems more plausible that the boy is Kolya. It might have been difficult and awkward for a mere sailor, even a formerly well-placed one like "Dina" ,to have his children playing around the Palace with the ex-Imperial Family.

From 1908 and ca. 1916:

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Aleksej/th_derevenkosinovialeksej1908_zpswfu8szdu.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/user/nemanjapr/media/Romanov/Aleksej/derevenkosinovialeksej1908_zpswfu8szdu.jpg.html)(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/th_inside20playing20war_zps12nbmn3x.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/user/nemanjapr/media/inside20playing20war_zps12nbmn3x.jpg.html)
(Not sure about the second one though, I believed in the caption)

Also, while searching the photos, I found one rare to me photo of Alexei with Derevenko taken somewhere and sometimes. Still a mystery to me. See:
(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/rarrewithDerevenko_zps5284owwy.jpg)

Honestly, I was never able to recognize Koly or any other Aleksei's friends in the photo. I only know Vasya Agaev and Zehnya Makarev who accompained him during the summer of 1916. :-D

New for me
http://nik191-1.ucoz.ru/nikolay2/foto12.jpg

That one was taken at Tsarskoe Selo's Gardens in 1911.

I've long been bewildered as to why Anna V. would have said such a thing in the first place about Derevenko. Was she mistaken or did she outright lie? And if it was a lie, what was the purpose?

I always thought Anna simply disliked Derevenko, for whatever reason, so much that when she was sure he could not really protect himself, she made the story up.

I agree. I was surprised by the crispness of this photo first and then by how aged she looks after that. I feel as if it is so easy to demonize her when you don't know all that much and only see the cover page of history. She wasn't a perfect person but I feel such empathy for her...

The resemblance between them seems to be more noticeable when they grimace as sunlight shines on them. However, I've also seen other photos of them from 1916-1917 where they pose ordinarily yet still, the resemblance is there. I can't give the photos, though (nyay, DVD's at home and I'm living somewhere else :' (  )

Loving this photo of father and son. Looks like Alexei is the sailor saying "Welcome aboard Standart" while Nicholas is the captain of the ship who also welcomes the passenger.

Nicholas' smiling eyes are remarkably beautiful to see. One look at him and you'll see how much intensely happy he is with his family.

Of course I had to check Helen Azar's book for Olga's diary entry for Wednesday, October 9, 1913.  Happily, she mentions Alexei:  "Had a Russian and Religion lessons until 11 o'clock.  At 11 1/2 we 2 with Papa and Aleksei went to the Shirvansky regiment.  There was a moleben and a parade for the 25-th anniversary of the Shirvansky regiment.  Took group pictures.  Then had breakfast with them at our [place]."

I'd love to see the group pictures she writes about.  I suspect the uniform he's wearing in the above photo would match the one he wears in the aforementioned group photo.

Nice!

Who do you suppose the female in the background is?

Isn't that Olga in the background?

Isn't that Olga in the background?

That's what I was thinking. But she seems a little...how should a say...thick in bottom, yes? though maybe it's just the angle and what she's wearing.

Probably Olga, though looking just a bit like Anastasia Hendrikova.

It's Olga — easier to see in the full-size version here (https://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/3707/98255750.5b/0_15b671_33ceaa55_orig).

And now that we're looking more closely, is that not Derevenko with her (them)?

Young cadets Vasya Agaev and Zehnya Makarov who befriended with the tsarevich in 1916.

I wonder what was their fate? I also think that one of them was with the IF at Tsarskoe Selo in 1917 but I can't tell for sure.

reply 27 and 28 photos look like the may 1916 Sevastopol visit

reply 444 picture with the seaplane it look like the may 1916 Sevastopol visit where the whole IF except Alexandra visited a seaplane base. If I could get  a better view of the seaplane I might be able to ID it

replys 160 and 201 In reading the book "Alexei the Last Imperial Heir" I believe it mentions a photo taken where Alexei lounges around like one of the guards with a fake cigarette in his mouth

 Any pictures with airplanes or ships in them post them and I might be able to ID them

more Alexei pics:
Archive.org has the book "With the Russian Armies 1914-1917" Alfred Knox Volume 2 page 401 is a picture Alexei, his father and others. I think it was taken in the October-November 1915 period not he Spring of 1916 General Ivanov who is in the picture was fired in march 1916.

The US Navy History and heritage command has a few pictures of Nicholas and Alexei go to the photo section and type in Tsar Nicholas II and:
NH100134 12 may 1916 Nicholas II and Alexei visiting the battleship Imperatritsa Maria at Sevastopol

NH100162 14 may 1916 Nicholas II and Alexei visiting the seaplane base at Kruge Bay Sevastopol OTMA were there as well
