They've made a mess of things for sure - or Putin has. He really seems to think he's another Czar and has to have his war to prove it. It will achieve nothing good.

Hopefully the Russian site members will be able to come back once the current insanity is over and done with.

Unfortunately, I don't think it's gonna be that easy.  Even if Putin dropped dead today, there is no guarantee that whomever replaces him will be any better. 

It would be like Hitler dropping dead, before the war.  The person most likely to have taken over would have been Hess or Goering, both die hard Nazis.  In other words, more of the same.

It will be years, if not decades, before relations between Russia and the West return to what they were just a few years ago.

It seems like forever since I was last here, not that I had much of a profile on the forum to start with.  I don't do much with the Romanovs these days except pinterist. Its a pity all the wonderful old photos on this site vanished with the old servers we used to use for photos. Hopefully the Russian site members will be able to come back once the current insanity is over and done with.

Queen Elizabeth II has now clocked up 70 years on the throne.

Only Louis XIV, the Sun King of France, had a longer reign (72 years).

The key phrase here is "personally present".
As was the custom among royalty, any number of relatives could have been named as (honorary) Godparents -- whether present or not.
When Tsesarevich Alexis was born, Tsar Nichols II declared all the soldiers in the active army fighting the Japanese as his godfathers.

Well, since the first move, described above, we were transferred again to a new monastery.
That entailed moving, getting settled, building, setting up, and putting a new schedule and regime in place.
Everything else got put on the back burner for a few years.
However we have always kept plugging away at this project.
In the meantime we have found even more letters, and have discovered a lot more information on the recipients.
We now have over 500 letters.
No predictions on when we will go to print, but no one wants to see this published more than we do.

Would anyone happen to know who were the godparents of Princess Tatiana Konstantinovna?

https://reading-hall.ru/publication.php?id=14922

[Rough translation:]
A month after the birth of the princess, on Feb. 5, took place the baptism of the princess in the church of the Marble Palace in St. Petersburg, in the presence of members of the Imperial Family. Those receiving her from the font [i.e., Godparents] who were personally present at the ceremony were: Empress Maria Fedorovna, spouse of Emperor Alexander III, Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna, spouse of Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich, Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich, and Grand Duchess Ekaterina Mikhailovna, daughter of Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich. Emperor Alexander III also attended this family celebration.
