Aww thanks Artie! I'm, glad you like it! Here's a better version of Paul of Greece, I accidentally posted an earlier version:

Love this!

I attempted to draw the 1913 tercentary pic of Alix and OTMA, but unfortunately only Anastasia and Tatiana turned out well, so I scanned them, here they are:


This is amazing, I REALLy like the style. Do you have any more like this?

Here's a drawing I did of Olga and Tatiana Nikolaevna

A printed photo of Maria Nikolaevna colored with pencils

An altered image of Olga N. that I did with a photo-editing program

A photo of Tatiana N. altered with the same program might not show up so here are the links too

Does anybody know any specific piano pieces the girls might have played? Referenced to in their letters?

Here's a drawing I did of GDs Olga and Tatiana quite a while back, the big pair is my favorite...I think it was completed last year, it took a long time! Link:

I think Tatiana is expecially hard to draw, jus becuase of her interesting features.
Post your art! :)

If anybody knows some piano pieces OTMA played? I mean, referenced to in their letters or something? I always like to look at modern-day photos of places historical people were photographed in and think, "They were actually right there..." and it's kind of the same with music and quotes and stuff. I'd appreciate help!

I had no idea, but I suppose lots of fans of history like historical fashion, too. I even write stories about Sissi just to describe her clothes! I'm writing one now, she & her maids are packing to go on a cruise to the South Pacific, but Franz Josef won't tell Sissi where they are going. I describe everything that goes into the trunks.  :)

That's so neat...maybe if you like doing this you should write a historical fiction novel!

Having Fun! / Yuliya Novikova--Olga Nikolaevna???

I watched "Romanovy:Ventsenosnaya semya" recently and realized that Yuliya Novikova, who plays Olga N, resembles Olga VERY's an example.

Ms. Novikova

GD Olga Nikolaevna

Anyone else have examples of strng resemblances between actors and portrayed Romanovs?

I like the movie "Anastasia" of 1997 *____________*, I like it because I've watched IT when I was a child and began to like the Romanov and Russian history, it is so magical and cool xD

Hmm, I've never heard of that one! I'll look it up.

Note: I looked this up in the search bar to see if there was already a thread and nothing came up...if this is a repeated topic, I didn't mean it

I got "Romanovy: Ventsenosnaya semya" for Christmas and I love it! I think the music in particular is really nice and the acting is great as well. :D The actors all really resemble the actual family, especially Olga.
I've seen "Nicholas and Alexandra" and part of "Rasputin" with Alan Rickman in the title role but that's favorite is by far "Романовы. Венценосная семья" and I LOVE "Russian Ark" even thought it's not exclusively NAOTMAA.
What's your favorite Romanov film and why? I don't really know that many.

Those are cute! They're really's so neat how they actually resemble the real people.

Did anyone else get anything Romanov related for Christmas this year?

I was thrilled (and surprised) to receive "The Lost World of Nicholas and Alexandra - Tsar" by Peter Kurth and "Royal Russia - The Private Albums of the Russian Imperial Family" by Carol Townend with pictures from the James B. Lovell archive. 

Bet you can guess how I'm going to be spending the rest of the day! :-)

Those are such great books! I have both of them...some of the photos are labeled wrong in "Royal Russia" but they're great pictures all the same.
I got the movie "Romanovy: Ventsenosnaya semya" for's so good, I've already watched it. I guess that would be "Романовы. Венценосная семья"?
