I think that this awful cartoon (but not the worse one, as was posted here) was shown in the movie "Nicholas and Alexandra". It was painted in red and Stolypin was showning it to Nicholas when the family was in Crimea right before the Tricentenary (yes...I know it was not historically accurate, since Stolypin was dead by then) . In the movie, Nicholas siad something over the lines of: "What is the Okhrana" doing?" and Stolypin must confess that Russian people "believes that Rasputing raped the girls and the Empress" every time he wanted to...

But yes; there were other cartoons worse than this one; I remember that in one of them, Alexandra is shown naked. Am I wrong?

Oh my God!  :o...I didn't know this, I have never seen that offensive caricature, and I don't want to see it.

I think I've saved it since the last time it was posted, but I'll have to search for it - I'm not sure if I can post it again though, because it'll be reposting pics - or could I just PM it to you? I'm really not sure, but meanwhile - I'll search for the caricature anyway. :-|

Uh, I think it was this one. Thanks, because I didn't found it in any of my folders - perhaps I didn't want to save it, and I don't think there's a big surprise there. Btw, I believe you said (in 'reply 208') you wanted to know what the writing says. As far as I know, it says "Самодержавие", which means 'Autocracy' - sorry if somebody replied before me, but I couldn't see an answer. :-|

Yes, it is correct, Tina. Well done! Painter wanted to say all was in Rasputin's hand, all power. Nonsense.

Thanks for the translation and explaination Tina and nena. The picutre is very vulgar isn't it? I've also noticed the artist wasn't very good - the only way you can tell it is Alexandra is by the crown, which people seemed to think Alexandra always wore - it must have been glued to her head!

Oh God, I actually dared to look at that one, and now I'm mentally scared for life!  Who would drawn something like that about a loving, caring mother who only wanted the best for her son?  I can see the one with Nicholas and Alexandra as puppets, but that is sick!  And don't give me "Well, Anastasia Spalko, they hated the imperial family and wanted to do something to wreck their lives," because that cartoonist just went too far.  If someone drew a cartoon like that about Bill Clinton, they'd be put in jail or something.  I don't know what I'm trying to say, but I guess I'm trying to make a point of some sort.

I love how everyone on this website; knows this song.

I don't like the part about Alexandra being just a queen and Rasputin being her lover, but you have to admit that song is AWESOME!!!!!!  I love songs with a good disco beat.

Not according to the Bill of Rights, they wouldn't.
