The Final Chapter / What do you think would have been the RIGHT end?
« on: August 19, 2009, 04:04:48 PM »
Russia was definitely not a good country when ruled by Nicholas Alexandrovich, and, had he been more competent as a ruler, a lot of unnecessary violence in the Revolution could have been averted. Basically, there were a lot of bad decisions he made that, had they not been made, a lot of bad things wouldn't have happened--though some of it was inevitable. I don't think the course of action taken by the executioners/communist leaders was exactly right. Here is what I think should have happened, to be totally fair and more morally right. Had I known that my plan would work out, with as little protest as possible, I would-

1. Give Nicholas II a proper trial, and take the DECIDED-BY-JURY course of action (whether it was death penalty, imprisonment, or whatever). If the jury found him deserving of one of those punishments, it should be carried out. But it should be taken into account how unrealistic it was that one man could rule such a vast country as Russia in that particular period. Basically, he needed a FAIR TRIAL.

2.  Set a fine for the family remaining, use those funds to sort of patch up as much of the war cause as possible, leave enough for the family to live on and be ok.

3. I would NOT execute the Grand Duchesses or Alexei Nikolaevich. Though many, many women and children were killed in the Revolution, killing more INNOCENT PEOPLE would not do any good for anyone. Two wrongs don't make a right, and this type of killing is pure evil. Answering evil with more evil is...ridiculous and it doesn't make any sense. The women and children killed elsewhere in the war had done NOTHING deserving death, and neither did the Royal children.

4. Perhaps relocate the remaining family members to another part of Russia, or another country, and have them set up their lives there.

I'm not sure how well this plan is set up, how it would have worked out, or if all the events prior to it would have allowed it to be carried out. But this is what I would have done is I knew it would work and if it made total sense.

What would you have done (corresponding with these four topics--

-Nicholas II's fate
-Management of the family's wealth, what else would you have done about the war with it, etc
-The fates of the Grand Duchesses and the Heir
-Final living place/where would you have sent the remaining  Royal Family

Thanks to anyone who replies. :)

Having Fun! / More Romanov Dreams?
« on: August 15, 2009, 02:11:14 PM »
I've been reading the other Romanov dream boards, and I think it would be nice to get a new one going! :) What have your Romanov dreams been like?

I've had two--the first one started out in a little gift shop by the ocean, with knickknacks and jewellery inside, shirts, etc. My sister and I were looking at necklaces, and we saw OTMAA and Nicholas come in, and they started looking at jewellery in another part of the shop. They were all wearing wide-brimmed white hats and they, but nothing else in the store, were black-and-white.

My other dream-- I was behind the executioners in the Ipatiev house, and the doors were closed. There were two groups of a lot of soldiers in front of each door, and Yurovsky was off to the side (light brown or blonde hair). One of the men would propel an orange flower or a piece of bread/cake/paper out of his gun to show that their group was ready for the door to be opened. Then the other group did that. The doors opened and they started shooting, though it was just the family and no servants in the room. They all looked like their pictures, N and A died. OTMA ran out of the room screaming, they got by the soldiers really easily. It was like I was behind them and they ran down this hall, which was dark with a kind of brownish thing about it. There were some small closets in the walls. They crouched in this tiny, narrow hallway, then ran into a large room where it was on fire, and this large, extremely ugly person had Alexei, and was trying to pull off his arms and legs or something. The girls tried to get Alexei away from the person, but he was already dead. They started screaming again, ran over to these school desks and flipped the flat surface parts off by banging on them a few times, then ran off to the side, and strangely, the sound and picture just faded out. There was this white "Russian" word on the black surface all of a sudden with an "s" at the beginning and a "zh" sound, and I think an "ih". The dream ended.
