Hello everyone,

I am doing a little research about how the the members of the Imperial Family and the aristocracy managed to leave Russia with her jewelry and then, how they sold these jewels in order to start a new life during the exiles. I am looking for books -specially auto-biographies, memoirs...- written by members of the Imperial Family and the nobility and with any chapter -even a paragraph would be enough- dealing this topic. I read English and French, so titles in both languages would be very useful! For the instance, I have found a few ones: Felix Yusupov and Grand Duchess Maria -later Princess of Princess of Sweeden- memoirs, John Van der Kiste's biographies about Grand Duchesses Victoria Melita and Xenia (where he transcribed excepts from letters and documents about the sale of their jewelry collections). 

Do you know more please? I am specially interested in the ones written by members of the Russian aristocracy, as I am not very familiar with them (excerpt for Felix Yusupov of Sergei Obolensky).

Thank you so much in advance for your help!

Best wishes and stay safe,

Hello! I  would like to know more about the Bavarian Royal Jewels. It seems that the collection was amazing!

What about this ruby and diamond parure to begin the topic?

Hello! I have read that Hannover Crown Jewels were returned to Hannover family by William II when V. Louise of Prussia got married with Erns August of Hannover. Is it true?

Hello! Do you know any book about the cars and the yachts of the Imperial Family?

Regards and thanks!
