Does anyone think that he looks like Tsar Paul in profile?  Massie says Nicholas avoided the profile because he felt he looked like Paul.  I don't see the resemblance (eyes very different).

Could we get a photo for comparison?
Why I enjoy watching The Andy Griffith Show at 2am, I'll never know.
Why yes, I do enjoy comical stylings of Anastasia :]

Paul's nose was even pugger than Nicholas'!!! Olga would have been happy to know!!
BTW the only thing they (Nicholas and Paul) have in common is the large, typical slavic forehead.
Uops. My forehead is large. Gosh! i can pretend i'm russian! LOL
Sorry... i'm a bit playful this evening!

I have a huge forehead too; combined with my grammatically incorrect English, people think I'm something other than American! I don't really see the resemblance though. Where/when did Nicholas decide he never liked his profile?

Good gawd no, they look nothing alike. That forehead is the only thing that they have in common and Paul's is much more prominent; making me think he probably had a receding hairline by the time the statue was made.
As for Nicholas, he was a very good looking man, that beard definitely worked for him. Now I realize why I have all of a sudden developed a soft spot for Prince Michael of Kent. He's definitely one of the dead royals that I find handsome.
