Day 11: Ivan IV, Catherine the Great
Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right...

Day 11: It's really hard to choose a favorite emperor but for Empress I'll go with

Maria Alexandrovna so I guess Alexander the II for emperor.

Emperor/Empress:
For Emperor, I'll probably go for either Nicholas or Tsar Alexander II. 
For Empress, I'll go for Alexandra. Why? I find her complex and interesting to actually read about and research!

Day 8:Favorite formal photo. Although I must say that I love all their 1914 formals if I must chose only one I'd pick the next:


Day 9: Favorite photo of Alexei


Day 10: Favorite past Romanov. I think that this must be between Peter the Great (for the same reason mentioned by Clockwork girl) and also AII (the emancipation of serfs). I feel much interest also for Catherine the Great but she's not my fave.

Day 11: My favorite Emperor is Alexander II (I admire him as Emperor but don't like his personal life), I don't have a real favorite Empress, I'm interested in all the empresses of the 19th century. Perhaps Elizaveta Alexeievna (she was a great and tragic beauty) or Empress Marie Feodorovna -Dagmar of Denmark- (she did a good role as consort empress, IMO).

I completely agree. Her complexity is what makes her fascinating.

Got to agree.

Oh if it has to me a Romanov and not someone who attended their ball then I'd agree

Xenia's

Day 12: I love Princess Zinaida Yussupova's costume, the headdress is as amazing as the gown.

Day 13: Romanovs you ship together, but are non-canon.

(This means people who you think should have been in a relationship but most likely weren't.)

The adult versions of Aleksey and Princess Ileana of Romania. That's all I have.

Again,  I agree with the above.

Alexei and Ileana. I love their photos together.
