I am trying to find any info on Colonel de Kotteritz of the Russian Imperial Guard. A year or two ago some people were kind enough on this forum to try to help me with this, but Col. de Koetteritz turned out to be very elusive. I have since found a couple more facts that may help, so I'm hoping that someone else may be able to turn up additional info or comments.

From what I can find, it appears that he was born "Bernhard von Koetteritz" on 21 Feb 1807.
He was baptized on 09 Mar 1807 at Brandenburg (Havel), Brandenburg, Preußen, Germany.
His parents are listed as "Von Koetteritz" and Juliane Montferin.
He had an older sister, Julie Caroline, who was born on 22 Dec 1804 and baptized at the same place as above on 22 Jan 1805.

The peerage lists Colonel de Koetteritz as the son of General de Koetteritz of Leipzig, Brandenburg, Germany.

Many thanks to anyone who can shed any light on this one!

I don't know if this will help you or not but I found the following with different birth date AND listing a death date... 

Кёттериц / Koetteritz, фон Бернард Юльевич, 9.2.1806 – 26.4.1888
Kёtterits / Koetteritz, Bernard von Yul'evich, 1806/02/09 - 1888/04/26


Kind regards, JGP


Olga Nikolaevna.  I wish it were bigger so I could make out the artist's name...

The artist is Pyotr Zakharovich Zakharov-Chechenets; 1816–1846.  This painting is in the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow.

To use a Death Camp victim of the Nazis to "legitimize" this fraud adds insult to injury.
That is what I found most appalling. 

A "tin Faberge bird from Italy"; who knew??? Sadly,  I suspect someone will buy it.

What do you think?

Did Nicholas even give Tatiana a Faberge pheasant for Christmas in 1909?

And why would a Faberge item be marked "Italy?"
Based on the "broken English" information given, it is totally a fake; IF it was legitimate, one of the photos would/should show the Faberge hallmark.  The provenance attributed to "Goldberg Estate" with a copy of Auschwitz registration is appalling.  A cursory view of the "paint applique" is also appalling.  Seller also lists 177 reviews, the majority of which are all from the same individual... "thebestfromukraine"  Buyer beware indeed.  You should report the seller to Ebay.

Couple of years too late but this is indeed Augusta Victoria.

Since its a modern painting (50s ) , i dont think so
The artist died in 1929 so it can't be from the 50's although I would agree with you that it does indeed look 50s/early 60s.    The painting is titled "Lady in Red"; no idea how they came up with Louise. 

Nicholas II / Re: The Romanov bloodline decending from 4th century AD

I have read your comments and suggestions on the subject matter of Nicholas ll and also note this particular subject name on Alexanders Palace web page clearly shows the wording Nicholas ll so who should one follow your suggestion or this web page

On the subject matter of rare visible earlobe markers of some royals within past, and a few present the facts laid out and can be seen on Royal Bloodline Descent on Facebook as well a few of the same can be found on Alexanders Palace site.

As you are probably aware we have received criticism of posting such information and advising that RBD has actual photo proof at our Facebook page , so no matter who criticises on line the facts are there to see, I cannot withdraw my comments because some may think negatively of what I have presented.

As to a photo on line of Clovis and his distant relative Chilperic ll showing the same gene marker the photos taken are from Coinage or in the case of Clovis from a statue when he was been ordained. Such spoken of can be found on line from where I located them from.

I have been advised by two well known geneticist one in the US and the other in England to inherit the same markers one needs to share the same ancestor kinship royal born or not . (Complex family line inheritance)

I have tried to follow this thread but am having difficulty trying to decipher your words.  I have several questions for you...

What is your first language and/or are you using Google Translate?

Who are the two geneticists you are referring to and what are their names? 

Who is Sarah Martin and what is your relationship to her?

Kind regards,  JGP


The lines Hesse-Kassel and Hesse-Darmstadt had decided to use the titles Prinz und Landgraf von Hessen / Prinzessin und Landgräfin von Hessen as their surname henceforward.

What was with Hessen-Philippsthal and Hessen-Philippsthal-Barchfeld style after 1918?

Both lines of the family were still existent after the fall of the Empire in only Hessen-Philippsthal-Barcheld and Hessen-Kassel lines exist.

See this thread...  Houses of Hesse - branches and titles

Books about the Romanovs and Imperial Russia / Re: ERNST LUDWIG'S MEMOIRS
« on: February 18, 2017, 09:37:08 PM »
I pretty much knew that.  I have the book in German, but I have to use google translate or scan and translate and they are pretty inadequate. I just thought I'd put it out there if someone knew something differently.

I simply answered your question so I am not clear on why you are now responding with "I pretty much knew that."  My apologies for responding to your post.

Does ANYONE know if these were ever translated into English?  If so, where I can find them?  Thanks.

His memoirs "Erinnertes/Memories" were NOT translated into English.

Hi everyone!

I've just received an answer from State Archives of Film and Photography, which makes me very happy, except it's completely in Russian and I cannot understand it, besides it's a pdf file so I cannot copy and paste it into google translate because it is the scansion of the reply letter which has been written.
So I was wondering if there might be any kind russian speaking member of the forum who could give me his/her e-mail address, where he/she could receive the pdf, read it and tell me what it says.
Thanks a lot

You can private message me on here and I will take a look at it.

Queen Elizabeth II is not doing the job to break records. She said: "my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong."

Of course not -- she is doing it to serve her people.  However, there's no reason people can't celebrate these milestones.  Surely, she would have rather had a shorter time on the throne if it meant that her beloved father could have lived longer, but that just isn't what happened, sadly.

As she has already achieved long life, the conventional prayer for "Long Live the Queen" may no longer be appropriate. Old age is not for sissies.

I can't see any reason people SHOULDN'T continue to pray for her health and longevity.  After all, her mother made it to 101.  She certainly doesn't seem so ill that she would be better off dead, which is what you seem to be suggesting, unless I am reading you wrong.

Agree with you.  I am not sure what "may no longer be appropriate means"; she seems/appears to be in excellent health both mentally any physically (how many 90 year olds ride ponies regularly?).  Her Subjects' thoughts and prayers (for those who practice a religion) certainly couldn't do her any harm.

In the U.S., Victoria is currently running on PBS. For those watching or who have already watched the show (U.K. audience), what do/did you think of this latest Queen Victoria offering?

Ella Kay, the Royal Jeweler Website blogger has been covering it and writing recaps.  She covers all of the historical inaccuracies both in the "story" as well as the jewels.  She is very witty and her recaps are very amusing.
