more and more we are seeing Olga A's personality coming out

new for me, thank you Dru, i've never seen many photos of this young man, given his young life I'm glad to see more exist

I always thought Vyacheslav Konstantinovich seemed a nice and promising boy who had a strong and kind face. He also has one of my all-time favourite Russian names too!

off topic perhaps but he now has an interesting and sad/poignant wikipedia page someone has made for him

the pictures of George V and his family are certainly new to me i wonder how many more there are in existence. it's nice to see photos of George and David (Edward) together hopefully they had some nice and tender moments together I'm sure they did sometimes...

Ally Kumari, bednayaliza, irishgirl84 thank you for these beautiful photographs I have not seen many/most of them before

they do, especially so in that photograph

I think it's 1899, when Nicholas visited Darmstadt. They wear traditional German hunting hats

 Hereditary Prince Alfred of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Tsar Nikolai II of Russia,  Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig of Hesse and By Rhine, and Prince Alfred, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (/Duke of Edinburgh)

Wedding picture of GD Nikolai and Princess Anastasia of Montenegro,taken from

a grand and poignant image

a fascinating couple - I can't believe there are so few photographs of them around! both very important people in the life of the last Tsar and fascinating personalties in their own right.

I've bought for Paul Robinson's work on GD NN for Christmas, and I'm very excited to read it fully  :)
