I'm interested in reading this.  From the description it sounds rather intriguing.  I personally loved "The Kitchen Boy" and I can't wait to see how this goes.

Maria Nicholaievna / Re: About her name; was it Marie or Maria?

I tend to use both versions "Marie" or "Maria."  It just depends on how her name pops up in my head. 

The Final Chapter / Re: why did the kill the children?

Yes, to everything LisaDavidson just said. That is totally the answer. But still, I find it stupid and pointless for them have done so. It's all so upsetting to think about the extreme terror they were placed under. I always wished they would have sent the children to exile like everyone else in Russia tended to do back then. But then again, Alexei might have come back and taken back the throne. I could go on about this for hours, that's how disturbing it is to me.

Having Fun! / Re: A poem about Maria

That was beautiful.  A little sad too.  You wrote this years ago, you said?  That's really cool.

Yes it was sad.  I mean she married a man who was homosexual at the age of 19.  She knew at a young age that the family was under threat. ETC.  I watched the scene where the royal train was blown up.  A six year old Olga ran out screaming "Their trying to kill us."  She was still a baby and she knew full well that her life would be in danger.
I am glad that she found true love and have her beautiful babies.  At least she died peacefully.

Wow, I honestly didn't know any of this!  Very interesting.  Of  course I knew that she was the one who knew best about her family's situation, but I didn't know that much about her personal life.  Thanks for posting.  Looks like I need to watch this documentary.

Annie, this is very interesting thanks for posting it! I think World War I was the war that stated all the drama. Anyone notice that World War II is more discussed and know about more than World War I. This is very informative.

I totally agree with you.  World War I most certainly started all of the drama.  Personally, I have always been far more intrigued about WWII, becuase there was so much that happened.  Even in my history classes way back when in high school (ok only 3 years ago), we discussed WWII more than WWI.  I think alot of students just find WWII more interesting for some reason when WWI is just as fascinating.  Thanks for posting this forum Annie!

The Tudors / Re: New Showtime series about the Tudors
« on: October 15, 2007, 02:58:54 PM »
Hi! I'm new on the "Tudor" board, so bear with me.  I guess I'll say what I liked and disliked about the show.  Well, I've only seen the first 2 episodes, I got them for free at Best Buy, but I am dying to watch the rest of the season.  I love the Tudor era!  I personally do love JRM performance.  He has that arrogance of Henry VIII as well as the kingliness.  Plus, I find him attractive (hee hee!).  Me and my mother sat down to watch it together, because we both love that era, and we both had our months open in shock about those sex scenes.  No wonder it comes on late on Showtime!  That was, like, porn!  Besides that, I did love the actual storylines within those first 2 episodes and I can't wait to see the rest when they come out on DVD.

The Tudors / Re: Review of 'Elizabeth: The Golden Age'

I'm going to see the movie, too, this upcoming weekend, but I've heard nothing but bad things about the movie.  I absolutely loved the first one, and I assumed I would love the sequel too.  Oh, well, I'll probably enjoy it no matter what the critics say.  If it dosen't fit in with historic accurency, oh well.  I consider a movie good if it keeps me in my seat instead of going off to the bathroom.

I think it sounds interesting.  I saw this when I was looking at the post about "Crimson Snow" at the top of the forum.  I love historical fiction, no matter how crazy or out of place the topic is.

This sounds great!  Is it historical fiction?  I couldn't find where it said what the genre was.  But from the description it sounded like historical fiction.  I gotta get this!

Anastasia Nicholaievna / Re: Shorter Than Alexei?
« on: October 12, 2007, 05:08:10 PM »
Ooops!  Forget what I just said.  Someone on Alexei's forum said he was 5' 7".  Guess I should have looked down.

Anastasia Nicholaievna / Re: Shorter Than Alexei?

How tall was he actually?  I can't even picture him being taller than Alexandra or Nicholas.  He seemed so tiny.

Nicholas II / Re: Nicholas II - Head of the Romanovs and Family Man
« on: October 12, 2007, 05:01:16 PM »
This is an interesting topic.  I always thought Nicholas' favorite was Anastasia.  Yes, of course he loved all of his children, definatley not arguing that---- but I thought he favored Anastasia the most because of the way she was.  She was fun and outgoing compared to her older sisters.

This is all so true.  Great information!

Imperial Russian History / Russian money system
« on: October 10, 2007, 11:57:29 AM »
Can someone please explain the Russian money system to me during Nicholas II time?  If this has been discussed elsewhere, can you please give me a link?  I didn't know where to find this topic if it was discussed.  Thanks!
