I watched a documentary about the Romanovs last night, and there was a (real) film of Alexei and OTMA when they were underhouse arrest i think, and walking down these steps, an Alexei looked pretty TALL!

He was born in 1904, on 8/12.

He was nearlly 14 when he was killed. (He was 13, everyone says, your not 14 intell your b-day) , but if he lived longer he would have be 14.

I know what you mean...What were they thinking? Oh I know:"We killed a helpless little boy who couldn't even walk on his own...we scared him to death and made him watch his family die! Praise us, because we did this amazing task!" ???

The blood the early Soviets shed was a blanket of disaster for all their subsequent endevours....

No one has a right to take anyone else's life, and the Bolsheviks certainly did just that.  They took lives of people who weren't involved in the destruction of the Empire (I don't think that Nikolai himself deserved death, though he was a rather inept ruler).  The only "fault" of the Family was that they were born or married into their postions.  However, that doesn't mean that death is the way to go.  Blood will be answered with blood, and that is exactly what took place in Russia in the years after the revolution.

Which documentary was that Anya? I know of no movie shot during their captivity, so either it was footage from a modern movie or some old movie shot earlier during the War. I have a Russian documentary that ends with some slow motion footage (shot before the Revolution) where Alexis is going down a long staircase holding a coat in his arms. Is that what you saw?

Judging by photos taken in Tobolsk, Alexis must have been almost as tall as his father when he died (if I recall correctly Nicholas II was something like 5'7).

It was filmed during the war.  I think there are films of them from 1916 going into a boat, etc.  Alexei was a tall boy, I think about his father's height--5'6", 5'7".  Taller than Olga and Anastasia.

Ya it was the one where (the real) Alexei was walking down a long stair case with his sisters and he was holding a cote in his arms! Its was from A&E's Nicholas and Alexandra (a documentary) not the movie! ;D

In response to the first post, it's definitely not impossible to be fourteen and eighty pounds.  When I was fourteen I was 68 pounds at 5'4/5'5.

AFAIK Alexei by 1918 was taller than his father so perhaps about Maria's height at 5'7-5'8" though not as tall as Tatiana...
