I hope this book will be as great as "Born to Rule".
Maybe it's focused on some lesser known Grand Duchesses and not just on the Tsarinas..

1847 is the year of Maria Feodorvna's (Dagmar) birth and 1928 refers to the year of her death.  So is the book only about her????

I believe I read about this book on a blog. It centers around four woman; Marie Alexandrovna and Olga Constantinovna who were born into the family, and Marie Feodorovna and Marie Pavlovna who married into the family. Not much information I was able to find, however it is a book I will purchase when it's released simply because I enjoyed reading the author's previous works.

That sounds great.

I'm interessted in Marie Alexandrovna, Olga Konstantinovna and Miechen.
So much is written about Dagmar, I'm tired of her.
But there is no doubt that I will buy it.  :)

Summary of the book from Historical Fiction Online forum -
Quote from: Tanzanite
From Splendour to Revolution: The Romanov Women 1847-1928 by Julia Gelardi. Non-fiction. US and UK release February 15, 2011. This sweeping saga recreates the extraordinary opulence and violence of Tsarist Russia as the shadow of revolution fell over the land, and destroyed a way of life for these Imperial women The early 1850s until the late 1920s marked a turbulent and significant era for Russia. During that time the country underwent a massive transformation, taking it from days of grandeur under the tsars to the chaos of revolution and the beginnings of the Soviet Union. At the center of all this tumult were four women of the Romanov dynasty. Marie Alexandrovna and Olga Constantinovna were born into the family, Russian Grand Duchesses at birth. Marie Feodorovna and Marie Pavlovna married into the dynasty, the former born a Princess of Denmark, the latter a Duchess of the German duchy of Mecklendburg-Schwerin. In From Splendor to Revolution, we watch these pampered aristocratic women fight for their lives as the cataclysm of war engulfs them. In a matter of a few short years, they fell from the pinnacle of wealth and power to the depths of danger, poverty, and exile. It is an unforgettable epic story.

I can't wait for this book.  Marie Alexandrovna and Olga Constantinovna are my favorites.  I have been waiting for a book like this about them.

This reminds me a little of The Grand Duchesses.  A book that Art published a few years ago.  It is similar in that he covered the Romanov Women.

I wonder if Ms Gelardi has new information?

I met Julia several years ago and have always loved her writing - but don't know very much about this book.
