The Duma's Regency propsal
« on: August 12, 2018, 01:15:59 AM »
It's well known that before the Revolution, many in the Duma were open to the idea of Olga becoming Regent for Alexei.

How would it have gone with Olga as effective Head of State?

Yes ON was intelligent and brave, but she was also furiously hot-tempered, which is not a good quality for dealing with politicians.

Olga was really too young to be regent for Alexei. If there had been a regency in Russia for Alexei it probably would have gone to GD Michael A or GD Nicholas N or there could even be a council of regents of members of the Romanov family, a general or two and a politician from the Duma.
