Imperial Claimants Post Here / GD Xenia / Anna Anderson Comparison
« on: June 09, 2005, 07:38:55 AM »
Reading "Once A Grand Duchess" yesterday, I was struck by a photograph of Grand Duchesses Xenia and Olga. GD Xenia looked so like Anna Anderson. I can't  find the pic on the web, but here's what I did find.

[BTW, please bear in mind, I am not a supporter of AA's case; to my mind she was a sad woman not in her right mind. But the likeness, to me, is somewhat uncanny.]

Rasputin / Rasputin & Nicholas

Was it a case of Rasputin v. Nicholas? Surely he could not have liked the way Rasputin controlled his wife?

I remember reading in one book that the Tsar generally gave into Rasputin for his wife's sake, because she would turn hysterical otherwise.

Did Queen Mary marry the Earl of Bothwell willingly? I have read otherwise and would like to know what the general view is.

The Russian Revolution / No Stalin, no Hitler?

Josef Stalin or Adolf Hitler?

Hitler seems to be regarded as THE example of cruelty and tyranny. Do you think he was worse than Stalin?

(I hope this isn't out of place on this board.)

...the fall of the Imperial family, or at least the tsar at the time?
