Does anyone have more pictures of the Kleinmichel? I just read in Greg King's marvellous book 'The Court of the Last Tsar' about Countess Marie Kleinmichel.

Thank you for the Information! Ihope they managed to escape the red terror.

Does anybody know what became of Stolypin's wife and children during and after the revolution in 1917?

I am reading her book on Rasputin. It's quite interesting! I also liked her book on Alexei Romanow.

Did anyone read her book on Empress Alexandra?

Thank you! I'll try it and I'm looking forward to see more pics of thr Royal Rusia...

6 is another good one!

Thank you! A lot of interesting and nice pictures, that I haven't seen before.

Thank you! I'll look for the book. I'm interested in the role the ochrana played in the downfall of the Russian Empire.

Thank you very much for the information! He might be the person I've been looking for despite the different spelling and first name. I'll try to get a copy of that book you mentioned.

Does anyone here have information about A. T. Wasiljew? As far as I know he was head of the secret police (Ochrana) in 1917 and published a book about his work in the 1930ties.

Thank you in advance!

I absolutely agrre with you. Nowadays it can just be speculation. But I'm interested in Figes' sources. He's a historian, not a storyteller!

I wonder, if anybody has seen the photoexhibition at the Burggarten in Friedberg in 2010/11/12?

I really liked it! They showed official and private pictures of the visit of the IF in 1910 to Friedberg and Bad Nauheim at the beatiful Burggarten in Friedberg. The first exhibition in 2010 was a big success and the displayed more pictures during 2011 and 2012.

Here a link with an article about the exhibition from Frankfurter Rundschau:,1472868,15243640.html

From this point of view the murder of rasputin might not only be commited to save Russia and the Romanow rule and to stop Rasputin's influence on the Tsarina. Felix Jussupov and GD Dimitri might have had in addition other more personal reasons to get rid of Rasputin....

What do you think?

I looked itup. Figes mentions in 'A people's tragedy', that Rasputin was related to homosexual circles in St. Petersburgant that he liked both, women and men. Part II, chapter 7, p- 313 f., German Edition Berlin Verlag , 2008). Jussupow is said to have consulted Rasputin due to cure his homosexuality, but was seduced by Rasputin. I'm wondering where Figes read about this?

I really like this movie, even it's not accurate in every detail. Good actors and beautiful settings.

You're right. Maybe Figes' mentioned it in "A People's Tragedy "too. It's several months ago I read the book.

In my opinion it's an interesting aspect and it might have influenced the "relationship" between Rasputin and Jusupov. Rasputin is said to have joined the Khlysts during his journeys in Russia and as far as I know their estatic rituals sometimes turned into orgies.
