The Yussupovs / Re: Felix and Irina's fashion house, Irfe.
« on: September 15, 2010, 10:57:52 AM »
I really like the Spring/Summer 2010 collection. I don't think I would ever be able to walk in those shoes though, the heels look too high.

I apologize if this has been asked before how to say Yusupova. I was in the forum, in the Yusupov topic, and reading about Princess Tatiana Alexandrovna Yusupova. I cannot say Yusupova properly. Is it just Yusupov with an 'a' sound at the end?
I think it's [ju 'su pɐ və], so stress on the second syllable.         

Thank you.

In some places when I read about the Romanovs, for the females after their names it is spelled, Romanova, how do you say, Romanova ?

How do you say Sigmaringen?   As in Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, I know how to say Hohenzollern as it was explained in earlier posts but I cannot say Sigmaringen correctly or rather I know I am not saying it correctly.



In Russian Sigmaringen sounds like you rerad it, only the first sound is Z.

Thank you, I wasn't saying too badly then.

the "ha" iis usually transliterated as "kha", an aspirant somewhere between a "h" and a "k" in English pronunciation/

Thank you, I didn't think that it was 'ha'.

Nicholas II / Re: Nicholas's Wealth, Will & Burial Wishes
« on: July 15, 2008, 07:29:26 AM »
At wikipedia Nicholas II is listed as the third richest historical figure with a wealth of 253.5 billion in today's terms. The wealthiest is John D rockefeller with 318. billion and then the second is Andrew Carnegie with 298.3 billion. John Jacob Astor is listed at 18 with 115 billion.
I'm surprised by the numbers because I thought it would be a little higher.
Here's the link and it gives an explaination of how the calculation was done.
