Those are not Romanov_Fan's.

PLEASE DO NOT POST OTHER PEOPLE'S COLORED PICTURES!!!!!!

I really do think we should just not allow photos at all and only links.  This is getting insane and making me angry.


I agree Lanie.

Do you know where I can find that discription that Gilliard wrote?


It was there that I saw the Tsarevitch, Aleksey Nicolaievich, then a baby of eighteen months old, for the first time, and under the following circumstances. As usual, I had gone that day to the Alexander Palace, where my duties called me several times a week. I was just finishing my lesson with Olga Nicolaievna when the Tsarina entered the room, carrying the son and heir. She came towards us, and evidently wished to show the one member of the family I did not yet know. I couId see she was transfused by the delirious joy of a mother who last has seen her dearest wish fulfilled. She was proud and happy in the beauty of her child. The Tsarevitch was certainly one of the handsomest babies one could imagine, with his lovely fair curls and his great blue-grey eyes under their fringe of long curling lashes. He had the fresh pink colour of a healthy child, and when he smiled there were two little dimples in his chubby cheeks. When I went near him a solemn, frightened look came into his eyes, and it took a good deal to induce him to hold out a tiny hand.

At that first meeting I saw the Tsarina press the little boy to her with the convulsive movement of a mother who always seems in fear of her child's life. Yet with her the caress and the look which accompanied it revealed a secret apprehension so marked and poignant that I was struck at once. I had not very long to wait to know its meaning.


I found it on the AP site where the book is: http://www.alexanderpalace.org/gilliard
Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we're gone and wonder who we were? How bravely we fought? How fiercely we loved?
