It is said that Alexander III was the first tsar to be faithful to his wife. Today, while reading an old book about Swedish film I came across some interesting facts. An actress named Tatyana Angelini Scheremetiew, who did the original Swedish dubs for Cinderella and Snow white, is listed as the illegitimate granddaughter of Alexander III and an Italian opera singer named Angelini. The "relationship" between these two resulted in a son, Michail Scheremetiew, who fled Russia in 1917 and became a singing teacher in Sweden. Tatyana was born in 1923 in Stockholm. She had formal music training from an early age and at age 14 she gave her voice to Snow white and later, in 1950, also to Cinderella. In her 30s she moved to the US were she toured the country with her own radio-show. She was apparently very good at languages and spoke four languages fluently; Swedish, Russian, English and French. She married twice and had two children, her daughter Michaela Jolin (born in 1958) is an acress and tv-hostess.

Has anyone heard this story before? Do you perhaps have something more to add? What do you all think about all this?

Having Fun! / New Romanov-story: When lilacs wither
« on: March 27, 2013, 09:58:30 AM »
I have just published the first chapter of my novel "When lilacs wither", a story about the life of Empress Alexandra Feodorovna. I'm actually writing it in my native language, Swedish, but I did a quick translation because I would appreciate some feedback from you guys. Since I translated this in less in an hour, it is possible that the English is quite bad at some places. I apologize for that. I haven't been able to figure out how the format-tools work in wattpad, so there are some strange gaps at places. I hope that you will enjoy my little story (I'm an amateur).

Since the old thread was so long, I decided to make a new one.

First of all, I have some comments about some of the work posted on the old thread.
HistoryFreak - Lovely! I especially like the one of Daisy.
Ally - Splendid! I love the one of Cicilie and Johanna. So very pretty!

A new one by me;
Tsar Nicky with three daughters
