The Imperial Family / Re: What Did OTMA Do In 1913?
« on: October 01, 2011, 07:28:16 PM »
I'm particularly intrigued with the diary entry for May 20, 1913 in Talya's response re the family at the Kostroma Cathedral placing stones with their names on them in the tercentary memorial.   Am I correct that the following video is that occasion?   Is that memorial still in existence?   I googled Kostroma Cathedral and found no mention of it.   I also did a search in this forum and found no discussion of same.

A beautiful, perfect wedding of a perfectly gorgeous couple.   I wish them all the happiness in the world and, as an American I'd like to send  kudos to the Brits!  They sure know how to do things "Royally"! 

Aside from Catherine's immediate family, was any mention ever made of any of her extended family being in attendance - aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents?   Were they among those who arrived at the Abbey in the mini-vans?

Holly, thank you for the links.   They were very helpful and informative.   I have been trying to locate where I read about the pistol, but haven't found it yet.   I know for sure it is somewhere on the APsite - I just read it this past week.   As soon as I find it I will post it here. 

I also want to thank you for giving me the info in a friendly, courteous manner.   When I read some of the threads you sent the links for, I was somewhat appalled at some of the nasty, impatient posts by some.   I find it a little humorous that given the fact that this entire site is dedicated to the story of the brutal assassination of an entire family that some on this forum are "put off" by a discussion of rape.

Hi!  I've been lurking in and around this fantastic website for several years but never posted anything until today.   Like all of you, I have always had a fascination for the tragic story of the Romanov's (mine started in 1965 when I first saw DR. ZHIVAGO!).    I just wanted to say how impressed I have been with so many of you regulars here - your knowledge is incredible and you all make this forum very interesting and informative.   Hope to get to know all of you better here now that I'm not so shy about posting.

I read somewhere that Nicholas had given Olga a pistol and showed her how to use it about the time they were placed under house arrest at AP.  It said that she kept it hidden in her boot.   This got me wondering if any mention had ever been made in any historical accounts about the Tsar and Tsarina being concerned with possible sexual molestation against their daughters while they were in captivity.   It seems to me that would have been of great concern to them, especially during those weeks that Tatiana, Olga and Anastasia were separated from them when N&A/Maria were first sent to Ekaterinburg.    Please forgive me as I'm a newbie  and not nearly as well read on the Romanovs as most of you here.   I did do a search to see if there may be a thread somewhere on this topic, but I found none.
