Was the ship visiting Russia at the time of the photograph then?

Regards

Ann

I'm from Argentina as well. I did some research, and I found out that the Sarmiento, in her third world trip, in 1902, arrived at the port of Kronstadt, in the Gulf of Finland, and that's the ocassion of Nicholas II visit to the crew of the ship, on August 9. He was accompanied by Alexandra Feodorovna, GD Michael Alexandrovich, Queen Olga of Greece, and other members of the Court..

Another pic of that ocassion, Nicholas inspecting the ship with its captain, Felix Doufurf, followed by the Argentinian Minister in Saint Petersburg, Eduardo Garcia Mansilla.



I'm happy to know you are from Argentina, veronica. Yes. You've stated the real story of the pic. Nicholas II never visited Argentina, but Sarmient's ship traveled by all the seas of the world and was indeed in Krondstat when Nicholas visited it.

Thank you for the last one, I was surely doubting about the year, since I've seen it labeled as '1904', which seems impossible.

Le figaro has issued an hors-serie number dedicated to the Romanov family (ending in 1918), named Le Roman des Romanov.

Lots of photos of the family and palaces.

Nicholas II in 1894 (Krasnoe Selo):






Nicholas and Alix in France (1901): (I think in the last picture Nicholas is the man who is on horse, on the right of the carriage, gesturing with the hand)
