I was just thinking about this project! I'm so glad that you're almost ready for publishing!

I still poke my head in from time to time. I've been mining for information for a writing project. There's still a lot of great info buried in here, even if half the links are now dead. If anyone's interested, there's still a lot of Romanov posts and whatnot on sites like Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr.

That is fascinating! I'm going to have to find a way to order that. And that detail about the fingernails was...chilling, to say the least.

I'm going to see this in my sleep tonight. Cool.

Going off of the forensic facial reconstruction, I'd cast Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark) as Alexandra.

Мария Николаевна и Анастасия Николаевна на Штандарте, 1908 г.

Oh my God. New favorite picture.

A drying rack, perhaps? Or something on which one could hang knitted things? I've seen things like it in my mom's fiber studio, but can't seem to place exactly what it is.

Olga Nicholaievna / Re: Did Olga become anorexic in exile?

Anorexic? No. Depressed? Absolutely. Speaking from experience, depression messes with a person's appetite a lot. You lose the will to do anything. She became depressed in 1915. So 3 years of that, combined with the bouts of measles she and her siblings went through in exile, you can imagine the toll that took on her physical health.

This photo makes wish I could travel back in time and give Alexandra a hug because God, she looks like she could use one.

It was probably just the wind, combined with how they're standing.

Yeah, I'd say it's Maria. The forehead is not big enough to be Olga's, IMO.

That looks great! I love your blog, by the way! Would you mind translating the back cover, though? I can't read Czech.

Alexandra had large feet as well, from what I can tell from pictures.
