Books about the Romanovs and Imperial Russia / Upcoming Books 2018
« on: December 02, 2017, 02:24:24 PM »
The year is coming to an end and new books are coming in 2018!

The Romanovs Under House Arrest : From the 1917 Diary of a Palace Priest

..".for the last time the former rulers of their own home had gathered to fervently pray, tearfully, and on bended knee, imploring that the Lord help and intercede for them in all of their sorrows and misfortunes." Thus the Archpriest Afanasy Belyaev described the faith and piety of the Russian Imperial family, whom he served as priest and confessor, on the occasion of the Tsarevich's thirteenth birthday. These selected excerpts from the chaplain's diary open a window into the souls of the now sainted Royal Family and the struggles endured in their first five months of confinement following the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II in early 1917. Russian cultural historian Marilyn Pfeifer Swezey sets the diary in its historical context and offers an epilogue to complete the story of the Romanov's journey to martyrdom at the hands of a Bolshevik firing squad in a Siberian basement.

Apparently next year should see the release of "The Last Birthday", and experimental film which follows the last days of the lives of the Romanov sisters, with:

Anna Popplewell as Grand Dutchess Olga Nikolaevna
Jazzy De Lisser as Grand Dutchess Tatiana Nikolaevna
Greta Bellamacina as Grand Dutchess Maria Nikolaevna
Fern Bain Smith as Grand Dutchess Anastasia Nikolaevna

Having Fun! / WARNING: Buying from Eurohistory
« on: August 22, 2016, 06:51:03 AM »
Right now what annoys me as someone who really wants to buy two specific books is the Eurohistory publishing house and their AWFUL customer service when they take your money, send no book and completely ignore your e-mails.

I mean - I own quite a few books published by Eurohistory and I am really glad they publish stuff nobody else does, but this is NOT how you treat your customers.

Hello all,

I wasn´t too sure as of where to open this topic, but I think it will be about books mostly so it is here. If admins find a better place for it, feel free to move the topic :)

I was lucky enough to be assigned my bachelor thesis on cultural and family ties between Russian and English royal houses in the late 19th, early 20th century. However before I even start I would like to ask for reccomended literature on the subject. I am specifically looking for books (and other reliable sources) that might deal with relationship of Queen Victoria with Alexandra Fyodorovna and Elizaveta Fyodorovna as well as books about what specifically was considered "English" at the time, and different in concept from Russian. Would there be a book nicely summing up what really were Victorian morals and such?

Thanks in advance to anyone who replies!

Alexandra Feodorovna / Alexandra and Alexandrina Hutten-Czapska
« on: September 24, 2009, 02:17:49 AM »
We know that in 1884 Grand Duke Ludwig of Hesse married morganatically Alexandrina Hutten-Czapska. Even though the marriage did not last long and was annuled Alix certainly must have thought, write or said something about the matter. Do we know how she saw the whole affair? She was still very young, did it hurt her to find out her father married again? Or did she know about his relationship with the lady mentioned above?

Thank you for any answers.

This I found today.... the name of the ketchup is really OTMA - scroll down and you´ll see a small OTMAA pic. The text beside it says:
Word OTMA was a password which Tsar Nicolas II. chose for treasure box containing the mostprecious and most beautiful jewels of Romanov dynasty. It wasmade up from the first letters of the first names of allfour Tsar´s daughters - Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia. It symbolized their unity, mutual love and affection.
