The Romanovs - your subject of interest?
« on: October 12, 2011, 04:11:35 AM »
Hi guys, I wanted to hear from you what exactly is your subject of interest -- what period, which person, does it include OTMA, or NAOTMAA, or the whole Romanov family generally, is period you love to explore Nicholas' reign, war period, captivity period, or something else?

My subject of interest is Tsarevich Alexei, war period, so from 1914 on, Rasputin, and photos identifying.

My main subject of interest is Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovich. And family of Tsar Alexander III.
I'm not too interested in OTMA or NAOTMAA.

My strongest interest is in Nicholas and Alexandra, their romance and their family life. I'm also interested in the extended Romanov family, especially Grand Duke Paul, Grand Duke Dimitri and the Vladimirovichi. I'm not all that interested in Rasputin - he creeps me out too much!

I've always been focused on OTMA, and expecially years from 1910 on, more or less... in fact, we know so little of them, in comparison to what (quite all indeed) we know about their parents...

Thanks for the thread, Nena!

Daily life and family dynamics of NAOTMAA, with particular emphasis on OTMA.

This is a good thread, nena -- I like seeing everyone's specialties.

I was thinking it's good when you need to know something about someone you're not interested in and you'll know who to ask about it!
