For brazilians: the tsar's exposition at Faap
« on: June 12, 2005, 07:38:03 PM »
Olá a todos os brasileiros participantes aqui do forum!
Eu acho tão lindo pessoas do mundo inteiro interagindo entre si por essa paixão comum,a dinastia Romanov.
Indo direto ao assunto:
Algum de vocês foi ao museu da Faap na esposição 'Herança dos czares'?
Eu,particularmente,me decepcionei - eu estava esperando achar mais coisas de Nicolau II e sua família,como vestidos das grã duquesas Olga e Tatiana,pertences de Alexandra e OTMAA, enfim, pertences pessoais e mais recentes;mas quase tudo era datado dos séculos XVIII e XIX.
Mas a exposição me mostrou uma das coisas mais lindas que eu já vi: o Ovo Imperial de Faberge,em comemoração aos 300 anos da dinastia Romanov.
Delicado,frágil,brilhante e imponente,numa sala com os retratos ampliados de todos os czares.
Foi maravilhosa a experiencia que eu tive com aquela pequena e brilhante jóia.
Alguém aqui já foi lá também?
A exposição vai até 26 de junho.

Hello to all brazilians participants of the forum!
I think it's so beautiful people from all over the world
interacting togheter by this common passion,the Romanovs.
But goin' directly to the topic:
Did anyone of you come to Faap to see the exposition "Inheritance of the Tsar's"?
I was particularly disappointed - i was expecting find more things about Nicholas II and his family, like Olga's and Tatiana's dresses, Aleksandra and OTMAA's  belongings, at last more recent things,but almost everything from the XVII,XVIII and XIX centuries.
But the exposition showed me one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen:
The Faberge Imperial egg,that one of the 3rd century od the Romanov's dynasty.
Delicated,fragile,brilliant and imponent.
It was one of the most wonderful experiences in my life.
The exposition goes until june,26.

Mention of Brazil and Imperial Russia brings an old story to mind:  A Grand Duke visiting the Court of Emperor Dom Pedro II was presented Brazil's highest decoration, the Imperial Order of Dom Pedro I, the Russian Grand Duke looked disappointed with this and said that he hoped that he would have received the Imperial Order of the Rose (an order lower in precedence) because he thought it was the most beautiful order he had ever seen. The Brazilian Emperor was gracious to grant the visiting Russian Grand Duke both orders.

Does anyone know the identity of the Russian Grand Duke who visited Imperial Brazil?

I just came upon a passage that HIH Grand Duke Alexei Alexandrovich visited the Empire of Brazil in an official capacity in 1872. He might be the Grand Duke who received both orders.
