I'm looking for good reading on Ella. I looked on Amazon and found

Elizabeth: Grand Duchess of Russia by Hugo Mager


Is this a worthwhile book or is there something more accurate out there?

I found it a lifeless study of a rather interesting and complex woman.  Christina Croft's biography of Ella is much, much better, and by far!

I have just discovered Christina's website.   Unfortunately I am having the same problems as some of the posters above.   I am on a laptop too.   I'll try on the PC.

I am looking forward to reading the website and as well as having the opportunity to purchase Christina's book on Ella.   I have written three of four times to Eurohistory requesting details of how to secure a copy, but have failed to receive a reply.

Only a matter of days ago I was standing outside Ella's rooms in the Alexander Palace.   The right wing of the palace is so forlorn and in a terrible condition.   It is still occupied by the Navy and absolutely out of bounds.   However, I did discover from a member of the naval staff that Ella's rooms are in not bad condition and the fireplaces have survived.

Anyway, back to Christina's website.   I have always known Christina is a woman of talent, but it is her character which is absolutely outstanding .   She is a very exceptional human being.

This book is beautifully written, and worth buying for her insights to Alix and Ella's relationship, alone!
So long and thanks for all the fish

What I find a shame is the way this forum's rules apply to some and not others.  If I were to place a direct link to an Ebay item I was selling, for instance, I have no doubt that my post would be removed. Apprently the rules are different when applied to selling books on Amazon (not to mention the constant reminders about books being sold on personal websites).  

I also find it a shame the way at least one respected author is repeatedly treated on this forum, and now I'm afraid we'll have to add Christina to the list as well.   :-/

That's exactly what it looks like to me too    ???  Maybe someone could explain why this thread has been taken down?


A dispute has arisen between Christina and Arturo about publication of her book.  Our forum was being used to drag people to take sides in the dispute between them, and we were left with no choice but to remove the thread entirely.

When Christina has a new publisher, we welcome her to let everyone know how to get a copy of her book.

About "exceptions" being made; we do allow people to post about their on topic books as this is a service to everyone interested, we believe that our users benefit more than the authors in being able to know about books on these subjects, although it is a "win-win" situation.  Ebay transactions only benefit the one "winner" and the seller. Personal commerce here is generally forbidden, though there can exceptions which are always asked for in advance.

I am not familiar with the site that was taken down.  

However, I have been to Christina's site and it is wonderful.

I just purchased a copy of Ella, from Arturo with no problems and very good service.

I am sorry to hear about the difficulties, but I encountered none in the purchase of the book.  I am quite satisfied.

With respect, I was not dragged into a dispute between Christina and Arturo. I commented on her post, which addressed something I had wondered about since I purchased ELLA last summer. The book is a slim, smallish paperback, and the list price was $40.00 plus postage and shipping. When my book arrived, I was dismayed to find it littered with obvious typos from start to finish. I also hope that when the time comes, Christina is in fact given the same access to sell her book here that Eurohistory enjoys and uses on numerous threads constantly thorughout the Forum.

Please rest fully assured that Christina will be always be allowed full access to inform users of when and how to obtain her wonderful book, and any future Romanov related books we hope she will write.  We are delighted and pleased that she wrote the book in the first place, and I am dismayed that anyone thinks we are taking any sides in the issue at all when the opposite is the truth.

Rob - we have tried to stay out of these and to keep others from being dragged into this. I applaud you and Bob for your efforts.

To those who say otherwise, all I can say is that I believe you are mistaken, but you are entitled to your opinions.
