Do you think Anastasia's diphtheria had anything to do with her short stature?  Some illnesses can permanently stunt growth like that.

Strictly speaking, OTMA were "Grand Princesses", not "Grand Duchesses", but there is no English equivalent of that title.  I can let that one go, but a shiver goes up my spine each time.

My biggest pet peeve is when photos are mislabeled.  Not the rare, poor quality, can't properly see who it is pics, but the 1913 family photos where all the girls are labeled wrong.  I've seen it wrong in so many "history" books.

Anyone with "dominant" traits (dark hair, eyes, etc.), CAN have a masked recessive gene, which is how a recessive person (blonde hair, blue eyes) and a dominant person can have a recessive child.  Also, not all recessive genes line up, example: having one parent's dark hair (dominant) and the other parent's light eyes (recessive).  I know it's a bit basic, but good ol' Punnett squares explain all of this.

Don't know if anyone has seen this or not.  Short film/ad/music video featuring an Empress Sisi lookalike.  You might find it blasphemous or you might find it really cool.  One thing's for sure: someone on the production of this video is just as much of a royal nerd as the rest of us!

Eurohistory,

I am very sorry if I offended you with my comment.  I am very, very excited about this book and can't wait to get it!  Definitely worth the value put on it, no question.  I plan on ordering it as soon as I am able.  I appreciate so much that your company is willing to publish books that don't appeal to the largest audience.  I understand how much research went into finding and translating the information.

Again, very sorry for any offense.

Karin,

I poured through my whole collection, certain that I had one/all of the photos you requested, but to no avail.

However, I did find a good version of this:

What I do in the case of women who marry into another royal house, I have them in their country of birth UNTIL they get married, when they switch to their spouses.  So for Maria Feodorovna, she would be under Denmark until 1866, when she married Alexander III.  Alexandra remains in Demark until 1863, when she switches to England.  Empress Frederich (Vicky, Queen Victoria's daughter) stays in England until 1857 when she married Fritz.  That's how I do it anyway.
