Alexsy Anecdote from Fate of the Romanovs
« on: July 10, 2010, 02:17:56 PM »
I've just received Fate of the Romanovs as a gift and I love it. Anyway, I thought I'd post a funny anecdote involving Alexsy, as quoted from page 53.

"One day, at Livadia, he sent a message to the youngest sons of Grand Duchess Xena to come have tea with him; at the appointed hour they arrived, but Prince Rostislav, Alexsy's favorite cousin, was being punished and remained behind. When he saw that Rostilav was not present, Alexsy rudely told his other cousins, "You can all go home!" and walked back inside the palace."

How naughty! :)
You are filled with anguish
For the suffering of others
And no one's grief
Has ever passed you by
You are relentless
Only towards yourself
Forever cold and pitiless
But only if you could look upon
Your Own sadness From a distance
Oh, how you would pity yourself
How sadly you would we

That's amazing!

OK! Sorry! I didn't see it when I searched.
