Isn't bulemia where you gorge yourself until you can't eat anymore and then throw it all up? And anorexia is where you just refuse to eat. I don't think Alexei was either of these, since I've read that he loved eating and I don't think he would stuff his face and then throw it all up on purpose.


Exactly. Alexei loved blini, which is quite fattening. From what I recall, Anastasia loved it too, and ate quite a lot of it. You're explanations of bulemia and anorexia are correct by the way.

ya I also think that he didn't have bulimea or anorexia! It just doesn't seem like something Alexei would have, or wanto be!

I know for sure that Alexei loved it. Not 100% sure about Anastasia.

Ok well I herd that Alexei weight about 80 pounds near the end, but he was almost 14, isin't that kind of imposible?

And how tall was he near the end?

Thanx!

When I visited the “Nicholas and Alexandra At Home Exhibition” in Newark, I saw some interesting sketches and diagrams showing the placement of pictures and objects in the chidren’a appartments in the AP. They were made right after the IF left the Palace for Tobolsk.

The exhibition catalogue says only this:

Catalogue 52-59:

Sheet 17: “Sketch-diagram. Left wall of the bathroom of the Grand-Duchesses. (…) On the door post are markings showing the growth of the Grand Duchesses and the Tsarevich.

Sheet 18: “Sketch-diagram of a ruler marking the growth of the Grand Duchesses and the heir”
(Both are from the collection of the State Tsarskoe Selo Museum.)

Unfortunately they were at the end of the exhibition and I was in a rush.  Most dates were very hard to decypher (in cyrillic and very small) and I managed to note only a few. If my memory is right, the last marking was for the Tsarevich: On January 1st, 1917 Alexis measured 1.54 meter (= 5 feet & half an inch). He still had 18 months to live and undoubtedly grew taller than that. How tall, I don’t know but, had he lived into adulthood, it appears he would have been taller than his father.

Maybe someone who will visit the exhibition in Cincinatti could note all the markings: it would be interesting to learn about the growth of all the children.

Hi thats very interesting. I looked in a medicine page and it says boy in puberty grow about 3.5 inches per year so he probably could be like 5.6 feet when they killed him.

He was still 12 in January 1917. He didn't turn 13 until August.
