I hope you draw more of Alexei.

I want to get a better idea of how I could modernize him, too.

Thanks! You're the first kind person I've met on here! I will!

I do know he had a certain laugh that gave people the chills, because it was his "Sinister" prank laugh.

Interesting. Do you know the source for that info? I've not heard of that before.

I've picked this information up in a book, but there are several quotes, like here's one from: "The Romanovs & Mr. Gibbs"-

 "There were several battles involving scissors. 'I had a rather bad quarter' Gibbes wrote in dismay. 'He wanted to cut my hair off and he was rather disconcerted when I told him he had made a bald place...he would insist on cutting or pretending to cut everything. The more I tried to prevent him, the more he shrieked with delight' Gibbes noted, with disapproval, a change in the Tsarevitch's appearance during these outbursts. 'He doesn't look handsome then: a most curious expression.' At the time Gibbes had no idea the Tsarevitch was a hemophiliac. Had he known, he would have been considerably more disturbed by the boy's antics."

(Please understand, I pick my information up from very reliable sources, never those stupid "Dating sites". Plus I've found numerous times when others have failed to quote. But this is only one of the quotes, when I find the other, I'll put it up. So please, don't be rude, I can be smart about a subject too.)


As I pointed out in a parallel thread, this passage was misquoted significantly. Text in italics was omitted from Gorseheart's post:

"There were several battles involving scissors. 'I had rather a bad quarter,' Gibbes wrote in dismay. 'He wanted to cut my hair, and afterwards his own, and when I tried to prevent him, he went behind the curtain and held it round him. When I opened it he had actually cut some hair off and was rather disconcerted when I told him he had made a bald place... he would insist on cutting or pretending to cut everything."

(The Romanovs and Mr. Gibbes, pg 42.)


I won't tolerate remarks about rudeness from someone who's misrepresenting information.

Calm down I haven't been here long enough to learn the bells or whistles. I haven't gotten 1 kind comment. I got one from you once, but I take that back.

Well actually Alexei hid behind a curtain and cut his own hair. Gibbes said that Alexei cut himself a bald place.

Well, I do suppose the book would be wrong. ^^; I have read several Biographies (Some not on IF, but other historical refences) and some information was added and some removed. P.S. There's alot of really rude comments here. Seems like other members don't like commenters to have correct information. THEY have to be wrong. I don't understand it. ^^;

"Dear Kolya:
All sisters send greetings to you, mother, and grandmother. I feel well myself. How is grandmotherīs health? What is... doing?
My head was aching all day, but now the pain has gone completely.
I embrace you warmly.... Greetings to Botkins from all  of us.
Always yours,                   
       
ALEKSEY

The end."

Not sure if it was accurate but seemed like what you were talking about....

From "The Romanovs & Mr. Gibbs"

"Though he had made such a delightful first impression upon Gibbes, the young Tsarevitch also proved a troublesome pupil. Gibbes began teaching the nine-year-old pupil in 1913. At first the boy seemed to be in thrall of his tutor. 'Was most observant of ME, and my clothes, and my actions,' he wrote wryly in his diary. Unfortunately, Alexis' fascination did not last; he was soon in search for fresh stimuli. 'In the middle of the hour he asked permission to ring for Derevenko (his sailor servant) whom he asked for sweets,' Gibbes wrote. 'The sailor returned bringing chocolate in a glass which the infant ate with relish. The habit has begun and ought to be stopped. It is piggish to eat like that in company.'
          Despite the course of child psychology he had attended at Cambridge, Gibbes had great difficulty controlling Alexis. At one point they made paper hats together. This proved to be such a success that Alexis couldn't be prevented from making more and more hats. Another time the Tsarevitch brought in wire and he and Gibbes made telephones. The idea was to hold the wire to the ear and between the teeth. This project also disintegrated into a skirmish as the Tsarevitch struggled to fasten wire to Gibbes' teeth against his wishes"

          "The Tsar insisted that Gibbes and Alexis sit in his 'cabinet' while he worked. 'Once', Gibbes recalled, 'he overheard the Tsarevitch telling me that...he was going to take the big cut-glass ball that hung on the electric chandelier. "Alexei!" the Emperor shouted out. "That isn't ours."' After the Tsarevitch had gone to bed, the Tsar would come and say his prayers with him. 'While we were waiting for his coming, we would read or talk or sometimes amuse ourselves with the cat.'"

          "There were several battles involving scissors. 'I had a rather bad quarter' Gibbes wrote in dismay. 'He wanted to cut my hair off and he was rather disconcerted when I told him he had made a bald place...he would insist on cutting or pretending to cut everything. The more I tried to prevent him, the more he shrieked with delight' Gibbes noted, with disapproval, a change in the Tsarevitch's appearance during these outbursts. 'He doesn't look handsome then: a most curious expression.' At the time Gibbes had no idea the Tsarevitch was a hemophiliac. Had he known, he would have been considerably more disturbed by the boy's antics."

          "The Tsar used to joke that he trembled with fear for Russia under 'Alexei the Terrible'. Gibbes later recalled arguments as he tried to persuade the boy to wear a thick coat; eventually the Tsar himself would be obliged to set an example by putting on his own thick coat.: 'Naturally he could not to follow when Papa led."




He sounds like a delight.

Tsarevich Alexei Nicholaievich / Re: Was his teeth crooked?
« on: May 31, 2010, 01:12:44 AM »
He did have a gap. Even until he died. The Bolsheviks destroyed alot of the IF's photos, but Alexei rarely smiled or opened his mouth in them because of low self-esteem into his teeth. I read his teeth weren't all that white because of the coffee and tea. But this is only strange to us now because we live in a time where beauty is everything and great teeth is part of it too. I would of loved to have seen more pictures of him smiling. He would be the little charmer if he had smiled more often. Like Pattie Boyd, it's a trademark. Also Alexei wasn't allowed to the Dentist being a Hemophiliac with weak gums and all.

Well I think him and Kolia did the sliding thing on purpose for fun, and the coughing caused the haemorrhage. When doctors check guys "Down there" they have them cough. Maybe this would help. :) The IF did many dangerous things. In one of Anastasia's diary entries (on this site) she says that ALL of the children went into a dark room and fired guns at each other, and that Alexei got scared and left. I don't think that it was a sucide attempt, he seemed to think that the Hemophilia would get him first.
