Hehe, I guess you could include that Sarushka... :P That was taken at Livadia, right?

I dont know why you would stick your tongue out in disgust Ortino.  ;D Alexei still looks handsome.  ;D

P.S. Even in a bathing costume. ;D
I think the 'hehe' in Ortino's post indicates that she's amused and is teasing, not digusted.

Yes, I believe it was taken in Livadia.


And I don't know that I'd refer to a 5-year-old as 'handsome'...  :-?

He probably liked them, or he might not of worn them.

Yeah. He liked the military and the navy, so he probably liked dressing like he was part of them.

Here's an old color PC from my collection.


Nastasya: he WAS part of the Army and Navy as he had been enlisted in various regiments since his birth (with a rank of junior officer). Therefore he was legally allowed to wear a uniform. Although he wore a miniature officer's unifom only on special occasions (such as regimental holidays) most of the time he wore the uniform of an ordinary sailor from the Imperial yacht Standart. When War began, he usually wore a soldier's uniform instead.

As far as I know, this is what he largely wore. I think he no doubt did like to dress as part of the army and navy. He was handsome as a little boy, and as a baby, wearing dresses and frilly things.Sailor suits were first introduced to Russian royalty with the children of GD Marie Pavlovna the elder, and Empress Marie Feodorovna, Nicholas II's mother. It certainly became prevalent among young males in the Romanov family, and among European royalty to wear them. The native Russian like costumes seen in mid 19th century photos of boys of the more junior branches of the Imperial Family, were never worn by Alexei as far as I know.
