I've found a wonderful website about this film that has some photos and adorable clips; it makes me want to see it even more!

The Hesse-Darmstadts (Hesse and by Rhine) / Re: Grand Duke Ludwig IV

Oh, wow, where did you find that?!

A friend of mine has Nicholas' memoirs, as well as Christopher's (Christopher's is HYSTERICAL).  I'll ask her about them. :)

The Alexander Palace / Re: "At Home with the Last Czar" exhibit

I am SO excited about going...

As for cameras, why is it rude?  I take photos in museums, as long as I'm allowed to, anyhow; which means often no flash, but that's okay.  Rather upsetting we're not allowed to take pictures in the N&A exhibit, that's really annoying to me, I'd want to have pictures to remember my visit by! Oh well.

Where is this museum--in Pushkin/Ts. S., I assume? :)

The Final Chapter / Re: Were the Grand Duchesses raped?

Ouch to the computer--I hope it's fixed soon!

Ow ow ow to the root canal and the surgery.  I'm having surgery in December to correct my underbite and I'm deathly afraid of needles... aie.   :o

I personally don't think the girls were raped... harrassed, definitely.  Raped?  Probably not, if only because it seems to me something they'd all brag about.  I've not yet read Greg and Penny's book (I want to!) so.

Blood transfusion, whaat?  I am so lost...

I really do want to see this movie, however...

Marie Feodorovna / Marie Feodorovna and her grandchildren

What was Maria Feodorovna's relationship with her grandchildren?  Did she see OTMA and Alexei often?  I'm curious since not much has been said about her relationship with them...

The Yussupovs / Re: Titles of Felix and Irina

A little off topic--but what was Irina like, personality-wise?  I've oly seen a few photographs of her...  Was she close with OTMA and Alexei?  It seems as little children Olga and Irina were close...

It was "Tatiana" (played by Lynne Frederick) who exposed herself to one of the guards, not Maria. I forget who the actress who played Maria was ...  I agree the movie is horrible.  Tatiana says something like, "I'm 21, I'm so pretty, everyone says I'm so pretty, and no man has ever seen me!"  Idiotic, I say!

Just curious--where WERE the staircases?  I've been looking on the site, just out of curiousity, but I can't find any reference to staircases...

Yes, Janet, that's exactly it. :) I found it online, sent the URL to an online friend, who translated it, put it on my Olga website and TennPat posted it! :)

I need to find that website again (I've got the URL saved on the other computer but my dad is currently on that one!) and use or babelfish...

That letter was from this Russian webpage I fuond... a friend of mine translated it.  There were a few others, as I believe, but my friend didn't translate those. :(  I should find the site again and bug her.  It was an Orthodox Imperial Martyrs site (in Russian as said :) ).

1199 is run by my friends and there's just not much to update and they're both busy with RL stuff, sort of like I am with my site ( but mostly it's because I'm fresh out of ideas.

There are indeed a few errors of identification in Royal Russia and you're right, it is Maria. :)  There are also other says a picture of Tatiana is Anastasia, and a picture of Nicholas, Alexandra and baby Olga was taken in 1886 instead of 1896!
