Day 20: I choose Queen Alexandra (she was related to both NII and Empress Alexandra) she was a beautiful and elegant queen, as well as a good hearted woman.

Day 19: I too will go with the Standard. So many good times for the family aboard that ship and so many wonderful photos!

Day 20: I don't "like" this person but he's one of my favorite historical characters from the period, so I'm going with Kaiser Wilhelm II.

Good choice, Dru. But I'm going with her son , Ernst Ludwig, "Uncle Ernie" to OTMAA, and father of Princess Elisabeth,"Ella".

Day 21: Romanov you loathe.

I don't hate any Romanovs, but as I've said, I'm not a fan of Nicholas and Alexandra.

Can't say I "loathe" any of them, but GD Sergei's always given me sort of a more negative vibe. Not much of a fan of Sandro, either.

Day 21: I wonder if I can include Catherine Dolgoroukaya for being AII's second wife... I've never liked that woman.

No one that even disgusts you Nena? How about just someone you don't care for?

I agree with Tim on this! Honestly much of the Vladimirovich wing of the family makes me want to side of the revolutionaries, lol.

I'm also in agreement with others that there is much to dislike about Serge Alexandrovich.
