Wow, Lanie, that's quite a variety of conflicting reports, huh! I guess we will never know what color her eyes were exactly.

Aw this is a sad thought... :-/ I agree, of all the children Maria loved kids the most, and it would be another irony of history on the Romanovs if she turned out to be a carrier of hemophelia like her mother! I think she would probably want to have children, had she survived, and then given birth anyway -- maybe the child would have the disease, maybe would've broken her heart if he had!

LOL It was Olga who had the big, round head and the short temper! Tatiana was very reserved and most of the time managed to keep her emotions under control.

I don't blame Alix for that either (sounds like something I would do, actually! ;D) because she had a kind of agoraphobia, I think.

Well said, Marialana! I agree, I think Alix would have a difficult time being fake or hypocritical. She always acted upon her beleifs, and had a hard time hiding her feelings (she probably passed this trait onto daughter Olga)!

Yes, Rskkiya that's right! I think Alix would get a little jealous of Anya V. flirting with Nicky, and although she kept her friend close to her heart, she was possesive of both her and her husband, and didn't want the two of them becoming too friendly, lest they leave her out. A little jealousy is good for marriage, or so I've heard. ;)

Yes, I recall reading about the cocaine use as well. It was probably not a significant enough amount to cause long-term affects or addiction. Remember the makers of Coca-Cola originally used cocaine in the drink as well?  ::)

Yes, I agree. Seems that a point-blank shot to the ear (and I remember reading that Yurovsky fired TWICE) would yield fatal results almost certainly.

Don't feel embarassed! You never know, it could have happened!  ;)

Yeah don't worry Michelle -- Tucker had me seriously wondering when the hockey game took place too!!

Edited because I can't spell 'hockey' today 8)

She had a gun with her when they were on board the Rus, I think.
I don't blame her!

 ;D ;D ;D

Thanks for the laugh! ^^

Yeah I just sold one on Amazon and somebody paid me $70 for it! :o
I was must be really tough to find! Keep checking, Mashka_Fan. Also try Ebay, and Abesbooks is pretty good, too...but they'll make you pay.

I had this book and I sold it. I recommend it, it was very good and had lots of pictures that I hadn't seen. It is a very nice size and the photos are glossy. I would say don't count out Ebay. It seems like that book is listed on there a lot, and a good deal might come your way soon. I got mine on Ebay and I think I paid like $25; which was worth it.  :)

Hi, Bear!:

                  I would like to know more about Marc Ferro's book. I saw it some years ago, but when I started to read it, I thought it was a complete rambling and I didn't bought it...What do you think about it? I remember that Ferro wrote about a "Maria" pretender who went to a trial and spoke about her sisters being alive, but perhaps I'm wrong. Was this Maria one of Michael Goleniewsky's "sisters".  ???


Goleniewsky met with Eugenia Smith, the Chicago Anastasia claimant, and they supported and recongized each other at their 'reunion' but then later denounced one another's credibility.  I don't recall hearing about this Maria claimant, (the Granny Alina is about the only one that sticks in my head) but maybe he did write about it. I used to have his book, and while it gets negative criticism by reviewers, I didn't find anything horribly bad about it, but it wasn't exceptional in its content, either. I think it just restated much of the material which I already knew, and managed to mis-label a few people in the photo section  ;)

Well said, pinklady. I agree, I think he had hemophelia as all of his symptoms were consistent with descriptions of the disease, and genetically speaking, there would have been a very slim chance that Alix had not passed the disease.
