Great photo! Nicholasha towers over NII, but NII is so well proportioned that Nicholasha doesn't dwarf him. All that chinning up, walking, rowing and tennis pays off.

In spite of NII's level of fitness, he looks like a real shorty comparatively. His being so small was a perceptual problem for himself and others. He definitely did not respond to his size the way Napoleon did.

You mean he didn't have a Napoleon complex? Well, he did prefer to address troops on horseback, since he was more imposing that way, and he tended to look much taller sitting down. Or maybe I just like short men ...

I realize that. In fact, in the Cathedral of St. Joseph in Wheeling, WV, built in the early 1920's, there are swastika tiles in the flooring of the main aisle. One of them is chipped around the edges, where workers began to remove them during a renovation. It was decided, however, to leave them, because they were originally a religious symbol and part of the history of the cathedral.

Title: Re: Re: Photos of Nicholas II #5
Post by: Alixz on March 08, 2011, 08:44:09 AM
There is a lot of information on the origins of the Swastika in this forum.  Use the search engine and you will find that it is a shame that the Nazi's perverted it for their own use.  It has a lovely past meaning in quite a few religions.

I feel sorry for those who would still use it for the original intent who can now not use it all.  It is too bad that we can't separate the symbol from those who prevented its meaning.  It is sort of like the stupidity during the first Gulf War when Americans started calling French Fries Freedom Fries because the French would not send troops into combat at that time. (Americans didn't stop eating the fries, though.)

During The Great War even poor Dachshunds and German Shepherds suffered because their names were German in origin.

In WWII Japanese Americans and Italian Americans were put into internment camps (which were just concentration camps as they concentrated people of like background in the same place) because of their national background.

But, as usual, I digress.  Time to get off my "soap box" and back to the original topic of this thread.

Digressing as well, but I think you should be careful about referring to internment camps for Japanese Americans as concentration camps, because they were nothing like the German camps. Those interned there were detained, but the camps were really quite comfortable and could not be compared with places like Belsen.

Post by: bestfriendsgirl on March 14, 2011, 07:09:29 AM
Well, they weren't like Belsen, no, but I wouldn't go so far as to say they were comfortable. Families were allowed to stay together, but quarters were cramped and very poorly built. And the restrooms and showers provided no privacy.

So this is puritanical America's idea of a concentration camp! Hm, was perhaps the Soviet Union perhaps "The Evil Empire" simply because nudism (gasp!) was no big deal?

Reminds me of some anti-obesity campaigners' slogan of "Nobody came out of Belsen fat"! (Yes, they've actually said it, no joke.) Duh, those who didn't come out had died, one of the causes being starvation!

Comfortable in comparison with similar institutions elsewhere, such as Japanese internment camps for civilians. The food was certainly vastly better.

Title: Re: Re: Photos of Nicholas II #5
Post by: Alixz on March 14, 2011, 09:13:29 AM
All I meant was that the US "concentrated" various individuals into areas (camps).  And I do know that the reason behind the concentrating of these individuals was not the same as the reason it was done it Germany.    But remember that the Germans called the camps "resettlement camps" and that is pretty much what the US was calling them as well.

And I doubt that the Japanese Americans saw the distinction between "internment" and "concentration" or "resettlement"  They just knew that their freedom had been taken away and I am sure they were terrified of life in those camps.

Again, the word was been misused and a new definition has taken the place of any other definition.  I have mentioned before that commune has become the hated communism.  Life in a commune or communal living was never originally meant as a world scourge.  In fact it was just the opposite, the gathering together of those who would live in peace and interact with each other peacefully while helping one another "each to his own ability".

My original post was just an exercise in the corruption of words and symbols and our inability to remember what the original purpose of the word was.

I am not, of course, condoning anything that was done either in Germany of in the US.

This all started with a picture of Nicholas beside a car that had a swastika as a hood ornament.  A symbol which, in Nicholas's time, meant only love, life, light and luck.  The four arms of the swastika are four of the letter "L" turned to connect to each other.

The word "swastika" comes from the Sanskrit svastika - "su" meaning "good," "asti" meaning "to be," and "ka" as a suffix.

Until the Nazis used this symbol, the swastika was used by many cultures throughout the past 3,000 years to represent life, sun, power, strength, and good luck.


Some cultures in the past had differentiated between the clockwise swastika and the counter-clockwise sauvastika. In these cultures the swastika symbolized health and life while the sauvastika took on a mystical meaning of bad-luck or misfortune.

But since the Nazis use of the swastika, some people are trying to differentiate the two meanings of the swastika by varying its direction - trying to make the clockwise, Nazi version of the swastika mean hate and death while the counter-clockwise version would hold the ancient meaning of the symbol, life and good-luck.

The reality is that Nicholas's hand is either going up to the salute or coming down (out of time with the rest!)

In the second picture, the tall chap immediately behind him is his brother Mikhail and the parade they are reviewing must be at one of the cadet schools, to judge by the size of those involved.

Re: #70 - again with those nasty cigarettes! I don't know how he managed to be so physically active and smoke like a freight train too. Granted, the cigarettes he smoked were probably not laced with all the extra chemicals they are today, but still, you'd think they'd slow him down enough that he'd quit. OTOH, they were his only real vice ... ;)

It's certainly not Bismarck, who was dismissed by the Kaiser in 1890 and died in 1898, so too early for cars. I don't think it's Hindenburg either. It doesn't look particularly like him - the moustache is quite different. Also, Hindenburg was a relatively minor figure before he was brought back from retirement and given command of the German army in East Prussia in Auguest 1914.

You have a great resource for photos eh? : D

Voyager of Freedom has been posting photographs that do not have their owner's permission to be posted. They have been removed.  We are now in the process of identifying all the other photos posted from Eurohistory without Arturo's permission.  Arturo owns the original negatives of these photos and thus he owns the copyright for use of these images.  These were stolen off his ebay listings. 

We take copyright violation very seriously.  This is a public warning to Voyager of History to cease immediately from using photos off the internet without first obtaining the permission of the owner. Any further posting of Eurohistory photographs without Arturos WRITTEN permission will result in a "time out" from the Forum.

I feel guilty too because I post some images from that seller too. I will now send a message to the Forum Admin to delete them. As I often see photos or postcards from ebay here, I thought there wasn't any problem posting them, but know I realise it wasn't like that. I'm so sorry =(

There is no problem unless the owner of the image objects to it being used. Many people love to share their images, others do not because they sell the images.  It is always best to contact the owner of an image before you grab and post it here. Many people consider our site educational in nature and are happy to let them be used. ALWAYS ask permission first and nobody will ever have a problem.

I have an obligation to remove any copyrighted images or material when asked by the owner.

You're correct about the typhoid, but I believe he was ill during the autumn of 1900.

Here's another from the same time:

Correct. According to Radzinsky's book:

'' In the autumn of 1900 in the Crimea Nicholas was dangerously ill. He had a typhoid, and  he was dying. Already there was raised the question: who would inherit the throne?  It was a strange question for Alix: of course, their eldest daughter, Olga...''

Strangely, the newspaper articles labeled that photo to have been taken in 1918 in Ipatiev House, probably because they wanted to make people sure that the Tsar was safe there.

EDIT: I can't tell for sure when the photo was taken, 1900 or 1901, if the recovery took several months, it could be possible that the photo was taken in 1901.

I thought I'd read somewhere that Alix had been pregnant with GD Anastasia at the time, and that she'd nursed him during the final stages of his recovery.  That's why I thought 1901.

Very possible --I think that his illness in autumn and toward the end of 1900 perfectly matches with Alexandra's pregnancy with Anastasia, who was born in the middle of 1901.
Title: Re: Re: Photos of Nicholas II #5
Post by: Alixz on June 19, 2011, 08:00:39 AM
I do believe that she was pregnant with Anastasia.  Alix thought that she would reign as regent for her unborn child in case it was a boy.  Otherwise, Michael would have been either regent or Tsar if Nicholas had died.

I don't think at that time that Nicholas had yet put the thought of Olga reigning out for anyone to think about.  Also in 1901, Olga was only 6 and would still have needed a regent.

...... Also in 1901, Olga was only 6 and would still have needed a regent.
I'm thinking Alix believed that would be  her...but it's no wonder it wasn't taken seriously....Alix as regent for a girl? It's like a double  no no for them...so you are saying Alix's only hope of being named regent would be in the unborn child was a son? Makes sense .
Title: Re: Re: Photos of Nicholas II #5
Post by: Alixz on June 19, 2011, 10:28:13 AM
But the confusing part was that if Michael was named regent for the unborn child and then the unborn child was a girl (as it was) then Michael would have been the next Tsar.

Alix desperately didn't want that.  Even if Alix was named temporary regent while she was pregnant and then the child was a girl (which it was) Michael would still be called upon to be Tsar. 

There was no way that Alix would have been asked to be regent - as you said "a double no no" but the whole thing was very confusing and not easy for anyone to unravel at the time.

I think that Alix did not comprehend the rules of succession as it applied to her and her daughters.  After all, she had been brought up by Queen Victoria who was a woman and a Queen and "in charge" (except for Parliament).

It was the "unborn child" that complicated things.  Without that, Michael was just next in line and he was 23 at this time and would not need a regent for himself.

So long as Michael was alive and Nicholas only had daughters he remained Tsetsarevich, period. There would be no "regency" for anyone unless Nicholas died after Alexei was born but was not yet 18. Alexandra could not be his "regent" which would have been the next closest male heir to the throne at the time.  All Alexandra could ever do was pray her next child was a boy, which I think contributed to her later neuroses...

Title: Re: Re: Photos of Nicholas II #5
Post by: Alixz on June 19, 2011, 02:27:37 PM
I think what confuses me is that had Nicholas died before the child was born, and therefore no one could know if it would be a boy or a girl, would Michael have become Tsar even though Nicholas might just have had a son on the way?

Would they have waited to see if the unborn child was a boy or girl and who would reign while they waited, if they did?

I think that is what worried Alix.  She was afraid that Michael would become Tsar while she still carried Nicholas's child.  Not knowing that it would be another girl and hoping that it would be a boy, she wanted to be regent for the unborn child to prevent Michael from becoming Tsar and thereby passing over a possible heir for her and Nicholas.

Post by: Kalafrana on June 20, 2011, 03:54:50 AM
Hm, I'm not aware of anything in the Pauline Law to cover such a situation.

This is pretty much what happened in France in 1316 and again in 1328. When Louis X died in 1316 he left daughters and a pregnant wife. His brother Philip became regent pending the birth. The child was a boy and technically reigtned for a matter of days as John I the Posthumous before dying (rumours of foul play). Philip then succeeded as Philip V in the normal way. He died in 1322, leaving only daughters, and was succeeded by the third brother as Charles IV. Charles then died in 1328 leaving daughters and a pregnant wife, and his male line cousin, Philip of Valois, became regent. The child was a girl and Valois succeeded as Philip VI.

When Alexander of Greece died in 1920, leaving a pregnant wife, there seems to have been no question of a regency as the marriage was treated as morganatic.

I don't see Mikhail as beeing all that ambitious. Had Nicholas died in autumn 1900, I think Mikhail would have been content to be regent had the child been a boy.

Indeed...but after Alix found out Alexis was ill, then  Michale becomes a worry again...In that she knew her son could die at any time...having seen others do so from the family disease....so all in all she had about 6 weeks without this worry.....the weeks between AN's  birthday and the diagnoses .  Even without the war and the revolution ,that branch of the family was going to lose the throne  ... Her situation  had been hopeless for years already...

I think that Michael as regent for the unborn child would have made sense.  Then when Anastasia was born in 1901, Michael would have become Tsar as he was already Tsarevich.

Of course had Nicholas died in 1901 then Alexei would never have been born.  What status would that have given Alexandra?  Would she be considered Dowager Empress but her daughters would not have precedence. 

She would have been a sort of "bump in the road" between Nicholas and Michael and Dowager Empress Marie would still be the mother of the reigning Emperor.  Marie would then take precedence over Michael's future wife (I am sure they would have found one for him as soon as they could) and Alexandra would have "retired" into obscurity?

Perhaps she had a reluctance to carry out the duties of Empress, but the duties of Regent seemed to suit her very well.  She took hold right away when Nicholas was at Stavka.

I believe she would have been a tigress if Nicholas had died and Anastasia was a boy.  I think she might have even tried to be regent for Olga if the Pauline Laws of succession could have been changed.

But I know that we are way off topic here, so I will stop posting about this now.  :-)

Auctions are the place where you may look at the pictures, but should know that the owner of the picture has posted it and wants to sell it, not to have it reproduced over and over and then brought to other sites where others can see it for free.

These photos in auction are originals, no ? Their value is material, this is easy to understand. But who can appropriate figure of Romanov's family, they belong to nobody except themselves. There's something I don't understand.
About scanning a book, I admit that this is a bit special. But if I have the great chance to have an original photography, I wouldn't care about seeing it on the web as nothing would substitute the paper value of this picture.

Nicholas II was only 5 feet, 5 inches tall.  Short, just like his mother.

As an adult, he only came up to AIII's shoulder ... if you look closely, you'll see that he's standing on one of the rails. I like how all the girls' skirts are different lengths, and did anyone else notice that someone is hanging out the window of the Imperial train?  ;)

I noticed both NII and TN seem to be standing on the rails...but missed the person on the train...good catch! There are other photos taken at this time of just the girls where they have flowers  . Interesting how T M A are dressed alike....rather than broken up into the usual pairs . It's sweet how TN is holding Alexis

The person looking out of the train window may be Olga.

Those outfits are ugly!  The way the blouses pull at the waist.  They usually look better than that.

Yes, there is a very clear resemblance to his father in the last two pictures. In the second he is wearing Life Guard Hussars summer undress uniform (you can tell the regiment from the hussar boots and breeches). I would hazard a guess the picture was taken during summer camp at Krasnoe Selo.

Once again, he is wearing the parade dress of HM Life Guard Hussars.

Does anyone know why Nicholas disliked being seen in profile? His profile looks quite OK to me. In particular, he wasn't chinless, as were a good many royalties of the day - for example, several of the Kaiser's sons.

  I seem to recall that he felt that his profile's appearance somehow resembled that of the Emperor Paul I. I haven't taken the time to ponder the alleged salient points for comparison, even though the Emperor Paul had (IMO) a distinct nose and wore no facial hair.                 Regards,  AP.

Well, in modern times, a monarch would usually only actually wear the royal mantle and crown, and bear the regalia, on the day of his coronation.

Here, the crown, mantle, scepter, and other regalia were purposely brought and ceremoniously displayed in order to bestow a formal, regal, official, and legal air to this very important occasion in the history of the Russian State. And to demonstrate that Nicholas II was acting in his role as monarch when he initiated the Duma form of government.

State opening of the Swedish Diet of the Realm at Stockholm Palace in 1974: Riksdagens högtidliga öppnande på Stockholms slott (http://geronten.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/riksdagens-hogtidliga-oppnande2.jpg) (Untill King Oscar II's death in 1907 the King wore both crown and mantle as in Britain and all the princes coronets. 1907-1974 the crown rested on a cushion and the mantle was draped over the silver throne. Since 1975 the ceremony takes place in the Diet without any regalia and the King wears a day suit.)

(As always, ceremony lags behind the actual development. The change from a medieval diet of estates to a bicameral diet took place in 1866 and the change to a unicameral diet took place in 1971.)

I know there was a 10 year age gap between the two of them and they pretty much had different lives but its a real shame they weren't closer. The only photos of them together I have seen are formal family photos when they were younger and a few on the Standart from the earlier years of Nicholas's marriage.

Yes, it is indeed his mother. Bravo! The *Russian* web-site put a caption that it is Tsar Nicholas and his spouse, Alexandra Feodorovna!

I always thought Maria Feodorovna looked good for her age but I'm not sure she looked 24.5 years younger.


I've never seen photos of Nicholas as a baby bald but this is listed as "Baby Nicholas II with his mother, Maria."

There are some photos of the Emperor as a baby, take a  look around.

I've definitely seen multiple photos of Nicholas as a baby but I've never seen one of him without hair. In all the photos I've seen Nicholas already has a mop of curly hair. 

The label on the photo listed it as Nicholas II so I went off of that. But looking further its obviously incorrect as the photo below clearly shows....

Sometime in 1899-1901, I guess. The Empress looks younger.. Though it could have been taken later but my first thought was late 1890's, early 1900's.

I got your point, Kalafrana.

How about mourning the death of the Queen Victoria, the Empress' grandmother who died in 1901. For a comparsion, the 1901 photo of the IF also shows that AF was wearing black and Nicholas white uniform as it is shown in the previous photo.

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/th_IF_1901_zpsafbb7289.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/user/nemanjapr/media/IF_1901_zpsafbb7289.jpg.html)
(Taken at Peterhof, in 1901, after Anastasia's birth -- the Empress is still wearing the black dress).

The IF also visited Denmark in September of 1896 and 1901 and in 1898 (or 1899 -- please correct me if I am wrong) as well. GD Georgiy died in August of 1899 and Queen Louise in 1898.

In the photograph at Burgdorf, the figure immediately behind Nicholas is the Kaiser. Given the clothes, they are presumably out shooting.

I know some magazines that have pictures of Nicholas, Alexei and naval minister Admiral Ivan K Grigorvich taken during their visit to the Sevastopol naval base in may 1916:

1. from Warship International magazine 5/1987 page 365 has these 3 inspecting the crew of the Imperatista Maria it is official USN naval Photograph NH100134. Note the Naval historical and heritage Command is digitalizing their photo collection. They are supposed to be finished with this process this summer. Some of the Russian ship photos belonged to former Russian Naval officers who fled into exile

2. Another photo has these three and what looks like possibly Olga and Tatania inspecting the Sevastopol seaplane base. In "the Russian Military Air Fleet in WW I" Volume I page 217. Note in the background hanger number 2 and the Grigorvich M9 seaplane # 107 in the background.

3. This on is in Over the Front Magazine issue 5-3 Page 253 as part of an article on Victor Victorvich Utgoff The Adventures of A Imperial Russian naval officer" It has those 3 at the Sevastopol seaplane base.

I hope this is of some interest.

That's wonderful, I've never seen it before.

I wonder why they chose those two photographs to put together. They don't exactly match very well.

It's rather funny since it emphasizes the age gap between Minnie and Waldemar. He's a young boy himself and his sister already has a baby of her own. Nicholas could pass off as their little brother

Only Maria Fyodorovna and Alexander Mikhailovich attended Olga´s second wedding from among the Romanovs. Neither Nicholas, nor Xenia were present.

Did Nicholas fall ill with typhoid in 1901 or 1903? Michael may have married Alexandra like George V married Mary when his brother Albert died and when Alexander III married Marie when his brother Nicholas died but it would have been slightly different as Alexandra was already married and had four daughters already.

It was actually in late 1900.

Alexandra would never marry again I think. And neither she nor Michael loved wach other. Neither would have gone through something like this. But perhaps Mikhail would have secured a hand of Baby Bee? If he overcame the opposition from the church as she was his first cousin... I cannot imagine Maria Alexandrovna not pushing for this match if her daughter could be the Empress of Russia.

It didn't seem to stand in the way of Krill and Victoria. And of course after putting his foot down Nicholas quickly submitted when the Vladimir clan threw their hissy fit and life went on. They got all the perks of being members of the imperial family you never would have known they were in disgrace for a period of time.

And if I recall correctly they got married in Maria Alexandrovna's private chapel so she supported it, despite being a devote Orthodox and knowing the social scandal it would cause. She clearly didn't care a bit of it because not only did she let them marry in her chapel but also let them live with her while they were in exile. She was also just as furious over the initial sentence Nicholas gave them as her brother and his wife were. She probably wasn't ultra strict when it came to the rules of the church. I have no doubt she would have been thrilled to be mother of the Empress of Russia.
