Oh, come on. Anybody who isn't intrigued enough by the alluring Greek title "100 Ερωτικές Επιστολές" (= 100 Erotikes Epistoles ≠ 100 Erotic Epistles) to learn Greek doesn't deserve to read it.  :-P

Березы севера мне милы,ó
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

There is a version in English. I actually didn't find it that interesting. The 'love letters' weren't very lovey--more day to day factual. And his relationship with Paola has been discussed previously. Do a search for Paola Saxe-Weimar--it should bring the thread(s) up.
They also serve who only stand and wait--John Milton

That was actually the disturbing bit, they were much closer than the regular boy friend/ girl friend thing like Edward VIII & Wallis or Charles & Camilla.

Young Constantine with his wife Sophie, brother George, future King George V of England and future Tzar  Nicholas II





Sorry, I have to ask for some help, but how can Prince George of Greece seem so much younger than Nicholas in this photo, he was only a year younger while in this photo he seems and is dressed as a child! Maybe it's another prince in the photo?

I think it's just a 'baby face' on his part--maybe that's why he grew a moustache. :)  He's dressed in his Navy uniform/cadet uniform.

He was a "baby face" until older in life. Constantine matured early in looks.

I'm reading the book but so far I only read his letters, not even one of her!
