Here's the translation (thank you Google):
PARIS, September 26. / Itar-Tass Dmitry Gorokhov /. The eldest in the family of the Romanovs Prince Nikolai Romanovich 90 years old. Historian and curator of the traditions of the family, he was almost a quarter century, the dynasty led by the union.

"In our family - from the first emperor to the present day - I'm the only one of the men who lived to 90 years - told the ITAR-TASS chief of the direct descendants of Emperor Nicholas I. - None of the Romanovs, from Tsar Mikhail Fedorovich and including all subsequent generations, has not reached that age. "

According to the hero of the day, health problems, he does not feel. "I feel pretty good for a 90-year-old man - said the prince Romanov. - But doctors recommend, however, be careful not to overwork, especially with regard to long-distance travel."

Nicholas R. Nicholas is a branch in the senior male line of the dynasty. His father, Roman Petrovich - the prince of the imperial blood, second cousin and godson of the last Tsar, his mother Praskovya Dimitrievna - daughter of Count Sheremetev Demetrius, a childhood friend and aide-de-camp of Nicholas II.

Parents married Prince in exile. Russian bank after the revolution they had left among the latter. Lieutenant Roman Romanov, a participant of the First World War, was 22 years old when, in parting with the Crimea, he took a handful of earth into exile. "He could not go back, but full of Russian land in Crimea bottle stayed with him everywhere, wherever he moved," - says Nikolai Romanovich.

In France, do not forget that in the 1st World War, Paris was saved thanks to the efforts of the Russian army on the Eastern Front. When, after the revolution there were thousands of Russian immigrants, the country has given shelter to the exiles, among them members of the imperial family. Born in Antibes, September 26, 1922, Nikolai Romanovich, however, perfectly said in Russian. It is a merit of parents, he said, to bring up children "is entirely in the Russian spirit."

After the family moved to Rome in the pre-war years, he entered the classical department of the Lyceum. In 1942, the 19-year-old Nicholas Romanov turned down the fascist government of Italy to become the king of the occupied Montenegro. Since July 1944, he worked in organizations allies engaged in military actions against the Nazi propaganda.

For many years, his leisure time is devoted to studies on the history of the Russian Navy and the Army. He published the book "History of popovok" - the class of battleships, named in honor of Admiral shipbuilder Andrei Popov. Now on the computer - a treatise on the Grand Duke Nikolai Nikolaevich, who headed the Russian Army in the First World War. "The heroism of Russian soldiers in the two greatest wars of the twentieth century should not be forgotten: they saved Europe - notes Prince. - Without Russia failed to."

After the war, the family settled in Egypt, then returned to Europe. In January 1952, Prince married an Italian Svevo della Gherardesca, heiress ducal family. Before the family moved to Switzerland, he managed the estate in Tuscany. At the princely couple's three daughters and grandchildren. Granddaughter Nicolette - famous film actress.

Heading in 1989 to address the relatives of union members of the Romanov dynasty, he set a goal to "achieve chinnogo and historically correct" ceremonial reburial of victims of the Yekaterinburg tragedy. In July 1998, he took part in the funeral ceremony in the Peter and Paul Cathedral of the remains of Nicholas II, the royal family and those who shared with them the tragic moments in the Ipatiev house.

Of recent events in the senior Romanov family to a special place puts restoration of canonical unity of the Russian Orthodox Church after the schism caused by the revolution and civil war. "Those days are long gone, the reasons for the disorder is no more, - he said. - This is, of course, a historical event, and it shows that Russia - one." No question of dynastic claims, Nicholas R. says: "Neither I nor the rest of the Romanovs not claim anything - just for the right to be re useful for Russia." One of the initiatives of the dynasty - a charity fund, which at the request of the Prince of Denmark led to his younger brother Dimitri Romanovich. Among the good causes fund - to hospitals and day-care centers in Russia.
