I also always thought the four were dressed in the same colour, and well, from the pics I thought it was white!

What a mistake!!!

Oh wow...

This is serious, but I dont think it happened.  

There would have been evidence (diary entries, guard reports...)

Remember they were kept under constant surveillance, and they lived in very "cramped" quarters where they couldn't really get away from each other, so it would have been hard for her to find the time, the place, and be careful enough to hide any scars from the rest of her family.

I seriously doubt it.

Those anecdotes are very insightful on what her character was like, at least as a little girl.

Thank you Sarai for posting the lyrics, then the anecdote really made sense.

WOnderful pictures

Thank you!!

As has been said, I also believe that you had to see her in person to be able to admire her beauty.  Also, black and white pictures do not show what her skin and hair and eyes were like.

As for retouching, it was definetly done, there are some pictures where her nose looks completetly different...

Having Fun! / Re: Astrological Chart of Nicholas II

Interesting info on all the zodiac signs.

Now, when it comes to the prophecies, is there any evidence of these?

In the case of Nostradamus, I know the prophecies exist, and have been interpreted by many thoughout the years, but in the case of the Monk, do we have any proof of the prophecies? or of Nicholas opening that letter at Gatchina? or that the letter even existed?

... just curious

So just where did this "personal" property come from ?

I was going to ask the exact same question.

Also... as a response, the Forum Admin says about places "acquired/purchased" by previous Tsars... same question, where did the money to acquire/purchase these came from??

You have to click a link that takes you to information on the family, and there you will find lots of stuff!


Bravo to everyone for such insightful comments!!!

To be honest with you, I dont know where I stand on this subject.

On one hand I consider her sly, since she managed to acquire and maintain for a very long time the confidence and "devotion" of the most important woman in the country. As someone said, it is hard for us to imagine what life was like with an absolut monarch in power, but I bet being his wife's "best friend" was a VERY IMPORTANT position, especially for someone like Anya.

Then again, on the other hand I think she wasnt too bright, since she gained little by being in this position. Her house was very small, and I remember reading the Tsar complained about it being extremelly cold during the winter. You would imagine someone being as close to the Tsarina as she was would be able to at least get a house with proper heating. Also, although she was favoured by the empress, she didn't use this to her advantage (obtaining benefits from others in court) by "helping" them out with the Tsarina...

As many have said, I do believe she was very pampered by the Tsarina in the beginning, and she live the "good life" without having to work for it... in a way.

Still, what type of person is happy with living his/her life as a sidekick??  I simply cannot get that

And I cannot understand how she managed to survived, when most others were killed.

So.. what happened to her during/after the revolution?

I belieeve I read osmewhere she lived in exile... but I am not at all sure about this.

What about her houses??? Her jewels??

Thats an awesome insight on a kings life...  It sounds like a very sad childhood...

BTW, in the picture where Princess Sybilla is going to the Parliament, doesnt she resemble Queen Elizabeth II??  ???

wow.. I had never heard of such book...  whats the name?

Maybe he did take pictures, and maybe they still exist.

Which by no means implies that they will ever be public.

I don't think all the "archives" have been opened to the public, and I believe there is a lot of stuff (documents, letters, photographs) of the IF in the Russian Governement possesion
