The Imperial Family / Re: What got you interested in the Romanovs?
« on: September 14, 2005, 02:58:28 PM »
If I remember right I first saw "Russia: Land of the Tsars" with my cousin. I wanted to finish it so sometime later I got it out of my local library. I then watched "Nicholas & Alexandra". First it was just the movies I was going after. I soon began to go after the books. Partially I got interested in the Romanovs because I am also intrigued with the Chinese Emperors of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) & I could make a comparison to the Russian Tsars to the Chinese Empires & their intrigues, reigns & scandals in the Forbidden City in Beijing.

A close friend of ours, an Egyptologist, told me that he met an elderly woman several years ago. Supposedly she was a young girl during the Russian Revolution in 1917. Suppossedly this woman told our friend that she remembered seeing Rasputin's body being fished out of the Neva River.
