Pictures of Alexei and his Romanov Cousins
« on: September 10, 2005, 03:37:43 AM »
Are there also pictures of Alexei with his Romanov cousins?

Specially those with Irina A., Xenia and Nina, some of the Konstanovitsj children!

The only pictures I've seen that are pictures of him with some of the children of auntie Xenia and with Dmitri.

That's Ksenia, not Irina.

Georg Donatus was NOT a Romanov cousin, he was a Hessian cousin. ;)

The reason I thought it was Irina was because in The Romanovs: Love, Power, and Tragedy it is identified as Irina. And her hair looks like it is not put up yet.

I don't know if I can post it here, so I'll post the link, Tsarevich Alexei and Igor Konstantinovich, swimming:

Don't know if this is a Russian or German cousin :-/:

The first one is again his Hessian cousin Georg. I'm not entirely sure about the second one, but I think they may either be Romanov cousins (unlikely) or Alexei's playmates. One of them is also wearing a sailor hat.

I have the second one in amagazine and it says that the other children are the children of Xenia.

I thought that too, Julia. But Ortino, why would it be unlikely that they would be Romanov cousins? ???

The German cousin on Tatia's photo is prince Louis of Hesse (1908-1968 ), Georg's younger brother. The other photo indeed shows Romanov cousins, the 4 younger Mikhailovichi boys: Nikita, Rostislav, Dimitri (behind) and Vassili (front row). I have seen other photos taken at the same time in 1915,  Tsarskoe Selo.

Thanks for clearing that up, Daniel :).
I believe the photo on the cover of The Kitchen Boy is from the same sitting.
