The Habsburgs / Habsburg Security
« on: November 06, 2010, 06:26:20 AM »
Does anyone know how security was provided for the Imperial and Royal family in the last years of the Dual Monarchy? Was it simply military or was there some sort of intelligence or police force also acting as security?

Their World and Culture / Moving House?

This question could apply to any royal or wealthy family that has multiple houses or palaces. Do they take everything with them when they move? I mean what if Nicholas was at the Alexander Palace and wanted a particular book? Would the libraries of the Alexander Palace, Peterhof, the Winter Palace, etc all have the same holdings? Would he have kept complete wardrobes at every palace? How much stuff follows the family around?

Do the President and Prime Minister of Russian currently use or live in any of the Imperial Palaces?

The Hohenzollern / End of the Monarchies
« on: September 27, 2007, 10:06:43 AM »
There seems to be a contradiction in German history that I am having to understand. On the one hand some of the German monarchies were very popular, some popular, some not so popular. Yet the Revolution swept them all away. How does one account for the popularity of the King of Saxony and the King of Wurttemberg and yet they, too, were deposed. And the King of Bavaria was the first to go, but he was popular, too, correct?

Was German German society simply divided between those who wanted an end to the monarchies and those who didn't and, with the end of the war, the fomer got the upper hand?

During the discussions for the Weimar constitution was any serious attempt made to restore the monarchies, even if that meant one of the Kaiser's sons for example?
