Imperial Succession and the Throne / Heirs
« on: June 03, 2005, 10:44:41 PM »
Would Nicholas II have been able to change the laws that only allowed males to rule Russia?

Possiblly changing the Romanovs from passing the crown down through Primogeniture to other forms of inheritance such as:

Agnatic primogeniture is inheritance by the oldest surviving  male child and if there are none then the oldest surviving female child.

Cognatic primogeniture is inheritance by the oldest surviving child without regards to gender.

Did Nicholas have to power to change the succession rights, or was he just unwilling?

Ok, i'm a big fan of PBS, and Masterpiece Theater. I started watching a few years ago and got hooked.

Of course i saw "Bertie and Elizabeth", and the "Lost Prince" and thought them both great, though i didn't particulately like the portrayal of the Tsar Nicholas II and Alexandra in the Lost Prince.

Anyways, i think if PBS's masterpiece theater could, they should make a "Nicholas and Alexandra." They wouldn't be concerned about time limits, as their series The Forsyte Saga lasted a good 8 hrs, and my interest in it never waned.

They have a reputation for quality programing, and i really think a new version of Nicholas and Alexandra needs to be made. The old one, well in my opinion isn't that great, and that's being kind. There are some great documentaries out their, but a book and a story like "Nicholas and Alexandra" deserves to be told properly.

BeNeLux Royalty / Books about Belgium royal family

I've been trying to find out more about the history of the Belgium royal family. I'm wondering if there are any books about them, i've been looking and can't find any, except for some European royality books.

Ok, first of all, before i ask my question i have for many years been firm in my belief that none of the members of the Romanov family survived the execution in the basement of the Ipatiev house.
Yet days ago i stumbled across a web site that claims that Alexei survived.
here's the site

It's quite long, but brings up several good points, like the hemophilia question.
I'm sure that this has been brought up on another link, but i did not find anything that brought this up in great detail.
So if anyone would check this out and tell me what they think, i would be grateful. Thanks.
