This portrait is currently on ebay. It says its an original portrait of Nicholas in 1909



 

It has a lot of "proofs" that this is an original portrait of the Tsar but  im not sure since this gent doesnt look that much as Nicholas (or it could be a painter who wasnt that accurate protraying people)

Since i cant post links to ebay `auction, if someone wants it, just tell me and i will send it via PM ;-D

One more laugh...Nicholas...why not Kaiser Wilhelm II ?

That's not Nicholas and this is obvious.

Lately a "wise-head" placed for auctions on ebay the thumbnails from the ONB archive. What do he/she think about?...

It looks like another royal i cant remember but defo not Wilhelm II since he just got beard being an old man . In his younger days he just had the famous "W shaped" moustache.

I missed the one using thumbnails of the ONB..i will checkj it out!

i was looking carefully the portrait and i found that the portrayed gent looks a lot like Archduke Josef Ferdinand of Austria-tuscany

Here a image of him  with Franz Ferdinand

Exactly! today I compared the photos of that Archduke and yes, it's him more likely.

Can someone please help ID the children on the steps.



I can recognize Prince Andrei, Princess Irina, GD Tatiana and GD Olga but I can't make out the rest of the children shown. Thanks in advance.

Ok, I see Princes Aage, Eric, and another one of Prince Waldemar's boys. Also, Princess Margaret of Denmark. The baby must be another of Xenia's sons and maybe Grand Duchess Maria?

 I can't tell if it's 1902 or 1903. In the Ropsha pic, Maria's hair is curly, but in that pic, it's pretty straight. One book says it was taken at Spala, another says Livadia. But I thought the imperial family only visited Livadia during 1901 when Nicholas II got sick from typhoid. I believe it's Spala because it's around the time period when Elizabeth of Hesse died in the hunting lodge.

Looking at it closer, I'm thinking it's 1902. I also think it's at the Alexander Palace. You can tell because of the tree on the right.
