1. It was the Tricentennary

2. I'm pretty sure they didn't go to the opera the second night, or something

3. Alexei didn't walk beside his father, I think he was either carried or stayed home

Hmm...good job to everyone and all (good grief, how did I miss "Alexandr" earlier?), but the nature of the game is one mistake.  If we continue on this trend, we'll be playing "which paragraph is wrong"!

 :D

I love this concept, though.  Keep up the good work!

P.S. Yes, the "Standart" is written [ch1064][ch1090][ch1072][ch1085][ch1076][ch1072][ch1088][ch1090] on Alexei's hat - I have a picture with a perfect example if anyone wants to see it.  

Funny thing is, it ought to be transliterated "Shtandart" as on the hat...I think Sean Connery's been sneaking about through history here and there.

Right on all three, except a bit of tweaking on the second one- Nicholas, Alexandra and Olga did go to the opera on the second night, but not all of the Grand Duchesses.  And I only knew that by looking it up myself, by the way; I can't pretend to actually know it off the top of my head!

And LMAO at Ivan's Sean Connery comment!  ;D

OK, Ritka, your turn again! :)

I'm on fire ;D

"So sorry for not writing in a long time, it's been a very stressful last few weeks here at the palace. The former Tsar, Tsaritsa, and their daughter Marie had to go ahead while the four remaining children stayed behind with some last few faithful retainers. Now the former tsesarevitch is well enough to travel and they have joined their parents and sister."

That happened leaving Tobolsk, not Tsarskoe Selo.

I'm going to resurrect this one!

Ok...just one mistake.

'My dear tutor, I apologise for not writing for so long, but I have been on a voyage! I was invited onboard the Tsar's yacht Standart and I had a wonderful time.  We went sailing all round the Crimea and I got such a suntan.  The yacht is very comfortable and it was greatly enjoyable spending time with the Imperial family when they are totally relaxed. '

The didn't sail in the Crimea. It was more near Scandinavia, and off the coast of Finland.

Bah, Ritka, you beat me to it.  Sort of.  I knew it wasn't the Crimea, but I really didn't know where it was.  The Standart usually did stay up north, though, didn't she?

;D ;D Thanks lol. My turn? Here's a tough one. I bet Sarushka'll know.

"My apologies for not writing for so long. I was staying with the Imperial Family at the Winter Palace. The little children are getting so cute! Little Tatiana wishes she could live here permanently. They enjoy themselves a lot, even if the Empress prefers to be a little farther away from St. Petersburg society."

It should be Olga, not Tatiana.
