Count Yakov Nicholaevich Rostovtsev was Alexandra's personal secretary and directed her chancellery. Am I right that he had escaped and wrote a book? Does anyone know of him and where his papers are located now?

Charles Crane made a trip to Russia after the war in 1921.  He visited Count Rostovtsev and his family on August 5th in Petrograd.  Although I cannot verify it, my thoughts are that he was killed by the Bolsheviks shortly after that visit.

A letter written by Baroness Buxhoeveden in 1938 states that Count Rastovtsev was dead. This letter dealt with the question of locating Romanov funds in Switzerland.

I know only that he has a Kamerger rank.
I would like to know more about him.

Alix used to hear the report of Count Rostovtsev in 12 pm.
