it may sound strange but i like konstantin pavlovich to some extent.probably because we live in the same country-poland. gd konstantin spent 16 years here. that`s why i`m so interested in his personality and life. he was nervous,brutal at times, prone to changes of moods.he tormented people mentally and physically. a few polish officers committed suicide because of him. but he was not a villain, he DID have positive features. a human being isn`t ALL BLACK or ALL WHITE. his personality was more complex that it is commonly thought.
1. Though Konstantin was his father`s favorite and hence suffered a little less from paul I`s anger, he shared liberal views of his brother alexander. grand duke alexander trusted him. in fact, when konstantin moved to warsaw, he always behaved very modestly during is brother`s visits clearly showing who was superior. before these visits he was so nervous that he lost a lot of weight.suddenly his belts and uniforms became loose.
2. He WAS often cruel towards officers but NEVER cruel towards soldiers. soldiers in the polish army recieved four times as much money as in the rest of the empire.
3. but at the same time he paid his officers` debts
4.his attitude towads soldiers was quite democratic:he attended soldies` weddings and financed school fo their children
