Aw.. I just discovered the state archive site (and I didn't find it here, either!)  They were all pictures I never saw before, and I was happy to see "new" ones of little Elisabeth!

I'm not sure if any one has seen these yet, so forgive me if you have!  There are a few pictures of Elizabeth riding a horse on this page:  She is riding with Olga and Tatiana.

Oh!  There are more in the following pages, too!  Looks like the family took a trip to Darmstadt?

Hello. =)  Since I recently got Photoshop, I've been messing around with coloring pictures. 

This one is of my great grandmother as a young girl.

TunaEars, that site you spoke of a couple of pages back is very old.  I remember other members here talking about how silly it is.

And the animated movie Anastasia is beautiful.  It's going on the legend on if Anastasia had survived, and yes a lot of things were changed for it.  It introduced me to the Romanovs when I was younger and it is still one of my favorite movies.  Besides, they don't say anything bad about the family at all.  They show them all very close and loving like they were in real life.  There was the one scene where Anastasia looks at a picture she made as a child and said something like "Olga said it looked like a pig riding a donkey, made me so mad!" (which any sibling could say!) giggles, and then says she misses them all.  So there is my rant.

Aaanyway, I came here because I didn't know where else to post this, and I didn't know if it had been posted before.  I was shown this site where someone blends modern pictures of Russia together with pictures taken in the same place during WWII.  I thought some of you might like to see them. 

For example there is this one, which I believe is the Peterhof Palace?

The rest are here.

Amazing.  My Sims 3 is crashing just thinking about attempting that. lol

Your drawings are very cute, Gorseheart.  =)

That looks like little Elisabeth's playhouse in the back.

Margot, perhaps a simple "that's not what she asked" would have done just as fine.  There is really no need to insult.
As well as those that agreed with Margot.  Why didn't you say anything before then?  Or will you stay quiet until someone else starts?

I first came to this site to get away from such behavior, but I suppose nowhere is safe.

And for Eric_Lowe, yes it is Maria I drew for my avatar.  =)

To stay on topic, I haven't come across anything saying when the two Ella's were together.  If someone happens to find something, please be sure to post it here!

Have you tried the search box?  In any case, here is a post made by AGRBear about the heights.  I hope it is helpful.

This photo was taken 4/17 Oct 1916 and the girls are not lined up as they are in the next  photo so heights are difficult to determine:

Nicholas II was 5 feet 7 inches tall.

About four months later:

This photo was taken in the Sping of 1917:

All the girls look about the same height as in the Oct. 1916 photo.

Tatiana who looks about 5 feet  6 inches - taller than Olga and Marie
Anastasia - shortest of the girls and believed to be about 5 feet 2 inches
Alexei - 3 months later was  said to be 5 feet and 1/2 inch tall


I think  Alexei was close to his father's height  5 feet 6 to 5 feet 7 inches tall by July of 1918.   Why?  The average growith for a boy this age is 3.5 inches a year.  If  Alexi was  5 feet  1/2 inch on 1 Jan. 1917  then from  1 Jan. 1917 to 1 Jan 1918 he would have been about  5 feet 4 inches tall.  Add another  seven months and add another  2 inches and that would make him about 5 feet 6 inches tall.

His weight was probably more than 80 pounds because in one of the diaries we are told that Alexei was feeling better and his appetite had increased AND that that he was eating well.  He still wasn't  mobile enough to burn off any calories.  By this time there was more starch in their meals than meat.  Probably weight closer to 90 pounds. 

Since Anastasia was known to be about 5 feet 2. inches tall  in 1918,  we can tell by the photos that Marie was taller.  Most think she was about 5 feet  6 inches.

The estimated height of Alexei and Marie,  as told in the news Interfax,  [seen  in above post]  indicates they believe the two newly found remains are 4 feet 6 inches for Alexei and 5 feet 2.5 inches for Marie.  The reporter must have been in error when he reported what the scientist believe.  If in fact the report is true,  then,   it would appear that  someone didn't  estimate the heights correctly.   Water,  acid,  fire  and decomposition does not shrink bones.
