Thank you Kathy for sharing this beautiful find! It has to be one of the best miniatures of Nicholas I have seen.

To judge from the hair, that must have been taken in the 1920s.

Hi,

I would say that Nicholas was 100 times better looking than Felix ever was......
He appears stronger and more intelligent to me.

I agree,

Nicholas was handsome with a sensuous mouth, Felix was too pretty...

In the book "The Foe Within" says in Russia by the late 1800s duels between civilians were outlawed but duels between officers were allowed and in some cases mandatory.

Ron Moe's book on Rasputin has an account of this duel and the events leading up to it.
