I think that Sissi had hazelnut-colour eyes...They were brown, but also light colkored.

No; it's not only you. The angle of her face is slightly different in the first one. I think this pic of the Empress could be considered as a rare one.

I've notuiced this long ago, and I always laugh aloud when I see the dogs face's and compare it with the Queen's one...


In the case of Russia, it would not need be a Romanov.   The people, or whatever represents them,  would choose, just as in  1613. This is purely fantasy, as any such restoration would be highly unlikely.

I agree with you Robert.

Russia's political development does not involve a return to its monarchic past.

Well...In fact I can't said what Russia's future will bring, since I'm not a fortune-teller. I think we must let speak RUSSIAN people by themselves about what they want and what they don't want. We are NOT Russian masters. Russian people is the master of their own destiny. Let future speak by itself. We'll know in some years what could happen.


Alexandra Feodorovna / Re: Was Alix of Hesse disliked by British royals?

I share your opinion 100%, Thomas_Hesse...But I've learn something by my own epxerience: people doesn't change their historical views easily. If TV and some old books said that Alix was a narrowed-minded woman who loves to torture Russian people and that she was not democratic only in order to destroy Russia, they would believe it. It's just "historical tradition", the worse way of taking history. If "official history" said that "X" was bad, he/she will be bad for ever, whatever new documents and evidence would say.

Other bad habit of us is to judge the past with the eyes of our own times...and of course if we use this method to analyze history, we'll made bad judgements, because people back then had not our parameters , and things that are evident for us were NOT evident for our grandparents...Of course, we must also thing that, maybe for our great-grandchildren we must be judeged as murderers or crazy people just beaucase we'll didn't have their social and cultiral ideas...

Yep. I was not speaking about Alix and Nicky true love. I think this is out of question. I was speaking about Alix as an independetn human being.

But all of us will be judging her by our own political or cultural ideas. We can't avoid it.

As for British Royals, it's true. We'll never know what they REALLY thought about Alexandra.

Massie's book is perhaps not the best argument - written at a time when huge part of the significant personal documents were still not available for most people.

It is sad that so many people seem to judge historical figures just out of their own sympathies - or the contrary...
Most have barely read part of the immense correspondence etc...

I agree...I think we can't avoid our own sympathies toward historical characters...and of course our OWN political views.

In my case, Massie pushed me to read more and more books about the Romanovs:correspondence, memories, diaries, etc...And the result was that my understanding for Alix growed a great deal. But I must confess that my own judgement was a lot for my sympathetic views about her. Other people would find her repulsive if they judge her by their "hates" and "loves".

Well...In a nutshell I'm saying that there isn't any "objective" biography. All we can do is not to hide documentation to support our own ideas or quoting it out of context...


Very flattering.  :)

I agree...In this portrait we are seeinga really beatiful and regal lady...but she doesn't like anything like the real Miechen. Just my little thoughts there... ;D

Tsarevich Alexei Nicholaievich / Re: Alexei and Hemophilia
« on: December 12, 2011, 09:40:45 PM »
DNA tests have recently established that 'royal' haemophilia was a 'severe form of haemophilia B'. Haemophilia B is normally less severe than haemophilia A, which is presumably what young Robert Massie had.


I've read that both "Haemophilias" - A and B - has different grades of severity, this is wake, mild and severe. But haemophilia  - as any other disease - uses to have different manifestation in each patient. I knew a patient with severe haemophilia "A" - I live very closeto an Haemophiliac Center in Buenos Aires - who had had little problem with it...but he was extremely quiet. he didn't like to climb trees or play soccer as a child; he rather liked to read and play cards...On the other hand, there was a young man with mild haemophilia who was always having to put Factor VIII , since he was very mischievous and spunky.
