Is that Nicholas's voice throughout the entire clip?

Nope. Nicholas speaks twice, near the end. Here's a translation from earlier in the thread that tells exactly when Nicholas speaks, and what he says:


Transcription:

Praises, officer's commands and hoorays for 1 min 50 sec

- 1:50 Brothers (an intimate version of the word, like buddies), thank you for the glorious parade!
- (soldiers)
- 2:09 Thank you brothers (ahain, buddies) for excellent manouevres!
- (soldiers)

Thank you! :)

This is the first time that I listen to the voice of Nicholas, he had a beautiful baritone voice.

If anyone has any vocals that they need cleaning up let me know. Sometimes enhancement and restoration can make a big difference.

Thank you, I have been looking for this......funny, but I didn't imagine him having such a strong voice. I wish there were recordings of the whole family.

I think recordings of whole IF existed, but they are lost. I think they were sent to Empress Marie Feodorovna. Count Voeikov says that Emperor's voice was strong and very deep and fine. Man would listen him for hours -- he said.

  It looks like a sideways H for Nicholas and an up right A and an upside down A - ?  I don't know who the two As would be for.  Unless it was for Alexander II and Alexander III?  I have seen the combined monogram of Nicholas And Alexandra and that is an up right H with a II under it and an A sitting right on top of the H.

The libraries of twenty-six individual members of the Romanov dynasty, as well as volumes bearing the markings of nine imperial palaces, are represented in the collections of The New York Public Library. However, the majority of the books, manuscripts, watercolors, and original photographs selected for this exhibit were primarily the property of five Romanovs: Alexander II, Alexander III, Nicholas II (and his immediate family), and the Grand Dukes Vladimir Aleksandrovich and Konstantin Konstantinovich, the brother and cousin, respectively, of Alexander III.

I'm not sure, but it could be exactly the initials of his predecessors, his grandfather Alexander II, and his father Alexander III...I don't think that the initial of Alexandra is included here...

That is what I think, too.  After I did some research, I found that it was said to be a compilation of initials of the three tsars.  It is interesting, though, that Nicholas II was still using that monogrammed paper when writing to the Queen of Roumania so many years later.

Hummm.....How about "Nicholas Alexandrovich (and) Alexandra, " as a conjoined monogram on PERSONAL stationery?  (I, myself, do NOT think it represents three Emperors.)  The use of this conjoined monogram for personal, as opposed to official correspondence, would explain why it was used in writing to the Queen of Roumania.)  Regards,  AP

Just as good a conjecture as any. The  cyphers/logos can be  like jigsaw puzzles. My input, just forr the fun of it- Victoria Alix Hesse. The sideways H is not a cyrillic N.  And the crown is not the usual  Imperial Russian. Could be Grand Ducal Hesse ?
