Olga Nicholaievna / Serious Height Issue
« on: June 29, 2008, 08:46:09 PM »
On this forum, I hear many estimates as to how tall the imperial children were. 

To me to say that Olga was about 5'4 or any grand duchess was under 5'6  save for Anastasia , I have a hard time buying.

When I see the girls standing next to Nicolas, they are noticeably taller then he was. 

Most stats put Nicolas at 5'6 or 5'7. 

The Tsarina was even taller then Nicolas, according to some records. 

So I am not sure that saying any of the girls except Anastasia were under 5'6 in height inaccurate. 

If I am wrong then so be it. 

Thanks for taking the time to read this !

Having Fun! / I can Relate to Olga the most.

       I thought I would post this here since I can relate to this Grand Duchess the most. 

       Whenever I read about her I totally understand where she is coming from, and her personality.

        I too am very close with my father, and reflect his personality the most.  Whenever I read about Olga and Alexandra not getting along at times, I laugh because I usually don't get along with my mother the best.  I still love her as I am sure Olga loved her mother but me and my mother have conflicting ideas and disagree on a lot of things like Alexandra and Olga. 

         I read a lot too, sometimes I steal from my mothers book collection, and read it before she does.   

          I am also moody, stubborn, kind, and intelligent  ::) So I am told.   

          Appearence wise, I think more like Maria and am told more like Maria, but I am defenately not as sweet and kind as Mashka even though she is one of my favourite Grand Duchess'

The Final Chapter / Why Didn't Nicolas Get the Children out?
« on: June 05, 2007, 10:47:21 PM »
Let me start off by appologizing if this topic has been posted already.  My question is and I think it is a rather reasonable one, if Nicolas knew that the family was to go into captivity or that trouble was brewing within Russia, and the Tsar was less then popular with the citizens why he did not make accomedations for his children.  ???  You would think as a parent no matter how ordained by God he thought he was to rule, you would still as a parent have an inkling that something could go wrong for your children.  I think if the Tsar was not so short sighted, that the children would have been able to survive.  The children have nothing to do with his politics therefore the Tsar shouldn't have allowed them to be punished for his mistakes.   Now I am not saying the Tsar was not a good mad or did not love his children I think that he was a bad politican and was so high on the belief that things would turn out for the best.  I mean he could have sent the children away to family.  Believe me even if you say there wasn't ways there proably were many chances for even ALL of them to get out.  I think it just reflects on his inability to be a good ruler.
