"Jeporady!" & Nicholas II
« on: February 03, 2006, 09:43:45 PM »
Today I was watching Jeporady! & one of the catergories was "Royalty & Ballet". The question was something like "Before he became czar in 1890, he fell head over heels for ballerina Mathilde Kesshinsya." I was surprised to find out that someone knew that the answer was "who was Nicholas II?" Also in the "Worldwide Authors" they mentions Count Leo Tolstoy & also in "Royalty & Ballet" they mentioned H.M. Queen Margarethe of Denmark.

Nikolai Alexandrovich became Emperor in 1894.

Nice to know that the Emperor was not forgotten.

What the question meant was in 1890 he had the fling for Mathilde. I'm sure that they knew that he became czar in 1894. Sorry for the confusion.
