I have just read as follows:

In 1903 Nicholas and Alexandra were in Darmstadt for the wedding of Alice of Battenberg, then the Tsar visited Vienna and hunted with Franz Josef in Muerzsteg, and there was also an Imperial gathering in Wiesbaden. Then the Imerial Family left for Skienewice, where little Elisabeth died.

I will look to find the exact months.

Gleb, that is interesting about Alexandra and Rome.  But I have spent some time in archive NYTimes and rarely found articles with a lot of truth in them, unless they are reporting ceremony, like Alexei's christening.  Do you think that the press was being honest about Alexandra?

Another idea, once complete, we could attach pictures to these travels, like the image of the 4 Kings in 1903, and NII & GV in 1913.  Naslednik

Generally I think you are right, but in this case I think she was really so afraid of terrorists (and sometimes she was right of course) that she forced the Tsar to give up, and consider that the thing was quite an offense for the King and the Queen who should have put them up, as the Imperial Appartements of the Quirinale Palace had been restored and refurnished for them.

Today I read some articles of 1910.
In September the Tsar was in Germany with his wife and he visited the Kaiser in Potsdam.

I read about the visit of King Chulalongkorn of Siam in St. Petersburg on June 19, 1897, he was received by Nicholas II at Peterhof Palace...I wonder if Nicholas II himself went in the Kingdom of Siam (actual Thailand) later, I'm never read or heard about it...

I found the information that I was looking for, Nicholas visited the South-East Asia, but when he was Tsarevich, before the visit of the King of Siam in St. Petersburg, take a look to this article: http://www.thaiair.com/plan-your-trip/destinations/en/wtf-279.htm

I hope that I'm not "off topic" with it, I don't know if I can post information about travels of Nicholas before his coronation...?

Of course. Add any dates from any time. That is the idea of this chronology, is it not? Someday, I will settle down long enough, I will go through the [computer] translated diaries of his which tell of evey visit, every visitor, engagement, dinners and with whom. etc... This is a cumbersome project which one  must settle down for, much like a jigsaw puzzle.

I just came across the chronology of some of his time spent from 1890 through 1894.  As soon as I get it in order, I will post it.

Do we include Russian country trips? -- K. Selo and Crimea were parts of the Russian Empire.   ;-)

Yes, I was just trying to lead up to his engagement to Alix and the beginning and the end of his affair with MK.

But why not?  At least we won't think that he was just sitting around doing nothing and it will help clarify his withdrawn image.

He did a lot on the trip to the far East and I have to get into some other sources for the itinerary unless someone has is in a book in one place.

1892 Marc.   Siam (Bangkok)  I have to ask about this one- is it correct?

Yes, Nicholas actually visited the Kingdom of Siam, please take a look in the article (post #37)....but the correct year is 1891 and not 1892, since the "Eastern journey" actually took place in late 1890 and 1891 : http://dic.academic.ru/dic.nsf/enwiki/5318350

RF4R  That is what I was questioning.  The year of the trip.  Thanks.
