I have too many specific reasons why I love each person on these lists but I have to make my post short.

Top 10 Romanovs:

1) Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia - I can't say how lovely and adorable they are - I'm tripping for words! Their sisterhood is exceptional. I won't separate them even in this ranking.
2) Tsaritsa Alexandra Feodorovna (Alix of Hesse) - she was a great Empress for me, a pity she didn't get credit she deserves; great wife, mother, friend, madame of the palace (she cared for the servants honestly!); her introvertedness is very much the same as mine that's why I totally understand her ; Devotion to God
3) Nicholas II- I wish to find a husband like him (better than he was!!); great Emperor if only he were allowed to prove himself
4)GD Elisabeth Feodorovna - for reasons reiterated in this thread; Devotion to God
5) GD Alexandra Nikolaevna - she's totally adorable and I'm looking much much forward for Dru's book about her!
6) Empress Elisabeth Alexeievna- fascinating life story
7) GD Olga Nikolaevna (Duchess of Württemberg) - wonderful life story, too, and she did lots for her duchy
8) Alexei - Such a sweet boy, very strong in face of the dangers he went through; matured most especially during the war and captivity - I see a great Tsar material in him had he been given a chance
9) Maria Feodorovna (Dagmar of Denmark) - I hate how she treated her DIL Alix but she's interesting because of her life story  
10) Alexander I - He opposed one decision in the Congress of Vienna and didn't allow the international bankers to create a branch of their sinister bank in the Russian soil ( a pity this step has been paid off by the "execution" of my most beloved family among all monarchs from past to present and future)

Top 10 other monarchs:
1) Astrid, Queen of the Belgians - Very interesting! Very good inside. Not a ravishing beauty but she's very beautiful in my eyes! Wonderful wife (I feel jealous of her love story and married life with her Leopold). The original People's Princess!
2) Elisabeth of Austria-Hungary - A complicated personality and tragical life she had! Very fascinating!!
3) Queen Alexandra of UKGB - Very amicable, beautiful; patience and understanding as a wife for an unfaithful husband deserves my applause.
4) Diana, Princess of Wales - tragic life story; I totally wished she was able to marry Hasnat Khan-their love story was so painful because she died before Hasnat could let her know how much he loved her :' (  
5) Grace of Monaco - Beautiful! I am jealous of her married life with her Rainier (but oh what rebellious children she had- result of over indulgence in love for them)
6) Baudouin and Fabiola - these lovebirds! When Fabiola died, I felt sad but I thought "She's reunited with her Baudouin again- that's lovely."
7) Albert I, King of the Belgians - one of the best monarchs to rule in the history, imo.
8) Queen Anne Marie of Greece - Beautiful and such a sweet person! Adorable married life with her Constantine!
9) Queen Mathilde of the Belgians - Classy and elegant! Beautiful and a great queen, imo.
10) Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg - Their "you and me against the world" love story is wonderful! Great rulers of their country, too~

3) Nicholas II- [...] ; great Emperor if only he were allowed to prove himself

He was Emperor and Autocrat for 22 years and you don't think that's being allowed to prove oneself? He needed to reign for a century and have the unlimited powers of an Ivan the Terrible or Peter the Great for people to see how good he really was?

You mean the Rothschilds? And are you implying the murder of the Romanovs was a conspiracy of Jewish international finance?

And perhaps you're not aware that Russia had its own Rothschild equivalents. (Why import Jews when you have a whole Pale of Settlement full?) Joseph Günzburg / Gintsburg was a Russian / Polish / Belarussian Jew who got rich during the Crimean War, founded the Gintsburg Bank in St. Petersburg which was involved in all kinds of financial and industrial projects in the Russian Empire and was made a baron by Alexander II's brother-in-law, the Grand Duke of Hesse.

A similar Jewish banking family from Russia are the Ephrussis.

Agreed. I also love her, along with Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie of Luxembourg, for being aristocrats. Stéphanie also for knowing Russian and Mathilde for her chic retro hauteur (unintended), in speaking the majority language, in the country of her birth, worse than the foreign commoners who have married into other RFs! She really sounds so garishly cute when she speaks Dutch!

About my #10 in other monarchs- It must be Grand Duke Henri.

Pryevyed, about the killing of NII's family, yes, I believe that conspiracy. I will never be anti-Semitic. Honestly  that family aren't real Jews. Their ancestors just converted into Jewish religion. They're not practicing Jewish religion, too.
I am sorry I can't comment to everything you said. It's hard to type replies with this mobile phone I have, and I'm outside in the sun. My eyes are squinting and head, aching.. I'm so sorry.

OK, you get your theories from the sites that claim the Rothschilds are originally Khazars?

BTW here is something fun for you:
The Norwegian constitution of 1814 famously banned Jews from entering the realm. (Not so much out of anti-Semitism, but as you point out with regard to Alexander I, out of fear of international finance, which the very weak Norwegian economy would be very vulnerable to). The newborn Norwegian state was broke and had to borrow money. The only one who was willing to risk his capital on this shaky venture was the Danish-Anglo Jewish banker Hambro. But since he was not allowed into the country, Norwegian politicians had to meet him at the Norwegian-Swedish border to negociate the loan!
