The Alexander Palace / Re: The Maple Drawing Room (photos)

Great photos. I hope they restore this room the way it was, if possible

The IF were indeed animal lovers especially Alexis. So touching to see them with the pets

It is one of the great what if's? If he had married and had male sons would Nicholas have been allowed to remain on the throne for so long as he did and the damage associated with his reign. Michael would I feel have been a superb Tsar and was the one man Russia could not afford to lose. The while dynasty just seemed to drift to an abyss and Michael might have been able to stop the rot.   

Imperial Succession and the Throne / Re: Who is the rightful heir?

Hi all,

Until Russia decides on this question it is mute.

For myself I have always followed the manifesto of GD Michael Alexandrovich when he handed imperial power to the Duma for the people to decide in free elections, and the Duma to ratify,  who and in what status should take the throne. This was the last act of the dynasty and is effectively still in effect. The Pauline laws do not matter it will be a decision for the country to make should they wish.


Does any one know where Helen Rappaport was filed speaking to camera?

What a good question!

Wonderful to see things being returned.

The Alexander Palace / Re: Help ID-ing various rooms

And what about this room ?

Could it possibly be Vyrubova's house?

I think this is the Mauve room as it had a piano at an angle to the door through to the bedrooms

What a wonderful story and a great picture. I hope it remains in the museum for all to see

I think the church is a better place to remember than if the house still stood, it would be to morbid I feel.

I do wish this all could be put to rest and the remaining members of the family buried in St Petersburg. It is coming up on 100 years and time to close this horrible chapter

Palaces in the Crimea / Re: Livadia, Palace of Nicholas II

I know when I get around to visiting Russia Livadia will be on my plans.

I bought this book and found it wonderful. I visited the museum in Ballerup as well when I was in Denmark, well worth a visit. Such a shame the farm is now gone.
