Happy birthday, Aleksei Nicholaievich Romanov :) +++++++ May the Lord God, Jesus Christ, continue to grant eternal peace and may your spirit continue to inspire and comfort the living who constantly discover and rediscover your touching, tragic legacy.
Hatred this is a disgusting feeling. Yes, there is sport gambling, there is a striving to win. But to hate someone this is awful! I think, that first of all you have to learn to respect your rival. -- Evgeni Plushenko

I am sure that on this day, 107 years ago, the Russian Empire had one of the happiest day among it's people.

Happy birthday Alexei! I hope you have fun riding bicycles and running around in Heaven :)
Why I enjoy watching The Andy Griffith Show at 2am, I'll never know.
Why yes, I do enjoy comical stylings of Anastasia :]

Yesterday I wanted to celebrate Alexei's birthday, so I went to visit the Hermitage, not the real one of course but the little one here in Amsterdam and after that I went to the St. Nicolas church in Amsterdam to light a candle for him.

I was just thinking: isn't it wonderful to think that all over the world people are still remembering him and the other family members on their birthdays and the day of their death, to do something in their honour, to pray for them or simply just remember them?

greetings, Griae

It is lovely, yes. I didn't light a candle for him, but I did go for a walk and I made a little pryamid out of rocks with my mother's goddaughter (while ill at Spala 1912, Alexei asked for a memorial made of stones when he dies  - the anecdote's around somewhere). Just having him in your thoughts is wonderful, though.

See those four sisters walking there?
One reddish,two brown,one fair?
Through the courtyard they go,in a line they flow,
Their name we know:
OTMA.

Happy Birthday, sweet Tsarevitch. Rest in Peace, and I sincerely hope that you are having the best of rowdy times with your sisters!

All hail the Heir!

Anne is this the fountain he so loved at Stavka? I remember reading about the games he would play in Nicholas's letters...squirting his father and other military men!

Yes it is . I believe he would alter the direction  of the sprays coming out of those  dragon dogs to  splash them! He looks so grown up there.

Happy birthday and rest in peace.

For anyone who can read Dutch or is simply interested, I am offering my book of poems about the Tsarevitch on my website as a PDF file, exclusively for today.
If you click on the link below you will find a news item about this offer along with a picture. The PDF file is directly under the picture.
The title of my book translates as 'Safely sleeps the heart of gold: the life and passion of Alexei Romanov'.
