So I was browsing Romanov photos and came across a photo with Getty Images water mark.  I clicked on the link and was shocked to see a huge collection of Romanov photos which are water marked and sold by Getty.  I scoffed at how they are selling the images especially famous images when we can get the images else where for free.    Oh and they have watermarked images where members from here have colorized their images.  It is so shameful.   What is your thoughts?

I was watching Horrible Histories yesterday and they did a skit song & dance called "Cousins".   Which sums up the story of Nicholas, Willie and George in a fun vaudeville style performance.     Nicholas is then seen again with other historical figures in a parody song for Horrible Histories called "We are History" which is a play on "We are the world".

Here is the links hope you guys enjoy.   I like the little jokes within the song lyrics especially about Nicholas and George about being mistaken for twins. ;)

Nicholas II / Diary entry of Nicholas' abdication?
« on: March 28, 2015, 06:59:08 PM »
Hi guys.

I am in a hurry and writing an essay on Nicholas' abdication.   Can anyone tell me where I can get a quote of Nicholas' entry in regards to his abdication?  I have just moved from home and lost my "A life long passion" both soft and hard cover.

So many years ago when I joined Facebook,   I joined an Alexei group one of the earliest groups I came across Romanov related and I noticed at the time there was a lack of photos so I got the ball going by posting various photos that I have collected from over the years from AP forums and Google.

Anyway I posted a photo of Alexei and Derevenko.   The photograph where Alexei is naked and Derevenko is watering him with the watering can.    I didn't think much of it, just another Romanov photo like the photos of Nicholas' bare bottom.   I covered Alexei's modesty with a yellow dot (thank you Windows Paint) as it is appropriate for Facebook and come on Alexei is still a child.  

Well years later, today I got this PM on Facebook.  Which I have copied and pasted for you guys to see.


"hello!
Where did you find that picture of Naked Alexei being watered with the watering can by Devenko on a summer's day? Never seen that one. Could you send me it without the yellow dot? is that really alexei?"

I have omitted the person's name.   I just want to say it is disgusting the person requested this photograph without the dot.   I do not have the photo of my computer anymore as I have a new computer.   This morning I feel horrified and violated by this creep.

« on: January 04, 2015, 01:29:32 AM »
A bit out there,  just wondering how often the Imperial Family bought new every day clothing until their arrest?   I know the girls would have hand me down night wear but I am just thinking every day clothes in general?

I want to share with you guys a new Australian period drama called "Anzac Girls".    Set in 1915 Egypt sees a group of Australian and New Zealand nurses facing war.   The costumes are fantastic and seems to want to stay true to that time period.   It even has Australian Indigenous soldiers.   It is interesting to see the contrast of the IF women and associsated women of Russia as nurses and Australian/New Zealand nurses of the same period.

I thought I post some photos.

Nicholas II / Nicholas' fitness regime
« on: July 04, 2014, 02:26:07 AM »
I know this is an odd topic but just wondering what was Nicholas' fitness regime?   It has been said by those who knew him personally and from those who examined his remains that Nicholas was a very fit man even by the time of his death.   

It is very well known he liked to go on long walks around the grounds or wherever location he was at.  (Does any one know how long his walks lasted was it minutes or hours?)

He also was a keen horse rider.   

Is there anything he also did to keep his body in good health (besides his smoking ;) )

The Final Chapter / Just a thought. What if he abdicated in 1905?
« on: June 28, 2014, 06:17:04 AM »
Just wondering what would have happen if Nicholas abdicated in 1905 during the first wave of protests?  Would things have been different?

Having Fun! / Celebs that look like the IF...
« on: March 22, 2014, 08:46:50 AM »
There was a thread many years ago of actors who look like the IF.   

I decided to start a new one after seeing this picture of Lea Seydoux from the movie The Grand Budapest Hotel poster.

 

No need to say who this picture reminds me of ;)

The Final Chapter / JOY - An article in the Daily Mail.
« on: January 27, 2014, 05:05:17 AM »
Didn't where to post this, so I thought I add it here.

Ted Thornhill the writer of this article was obviously looking for some easy money and wrote an article about Joy,  there really isn't much to go by the article just a little bit of info about Joy and the plight about Joy's survival.  With some pictures and a 2 second clip.

I tried to go back past threads,  and I have read various other topics on this sub-forum.

After reading how Alexandra insisted to go with Nicholas to "Moscow" when he was requested to go by himself,  do you think with her doing so (included taking Maria with them) caused the fates of the OTMAA and the servants to be sealed.  Because she didn't want to leave Nicholas' side?
