New rare of Tatiana and Olga!!!

I just realized this is the first pic of Olga with her cat Vaska! 

Actually it may be just a random cat as cats were kept on board to prevent mice taking over. There are pictures of Imperial children playing with their kittens.

"He’s so pathetic. Let me tell you something about Kaiser Wilhem. We were best friends in England. I know, right? It’s so embarrassing. I don’t even… Whatever. So then 1895, I started hanging out with my cousin Nicky, who was totally gorgeous but then his father died, and Wilhem was like, weirdly jealous of him. Like, if I would blow him off to hang out with Nicky, he’d be like, "Why didn’t return my letter?" And I’d be like, "Why are you so obsessed with me?" So then, in 1907, which was the signing of the alliance with France and Russia, I was like, "Wilhem, I can’t invite you, because I think you’re an absolutist." I mean I couldn’t have an absolutist at my conference. There were gonna be liberals there signing a treaty, I mean, right? He was an AUTOCRAT. So then his wife wrote to my wife, and started yelling at her, it was so retarded. And then he started World War I because no one would talk to him, and he came back in the fall for peace discussions, all of his hair was falling out and he was totally weird, and now I guess he’s on crack."

Hello, I was wondering if you could recommend any documentaries or sources that you found helpful in learning about the Romanov’s. In my Modern History class we’re learning about ‘The Decline and Fall of the Romanov Dynasty’ and in our assessment we’ll need to prove to what extent Nicholas II was responsible for the fall of Imperial Russia. Your FAQ and book list were extremely helpful and I’ve started researching documentaries myself, but if you have any extra time could you recommend anything?

Hello! I can’t really recommend any documentaries because I didn’t watch any, or at least watched a documentary with English subtitles for me to understand. You can find much useful information on my blog and I guess you did. I’ll also give you a few external links below about Nicholas II, just in case you haven’t found them. Good luck with your schoolwork. Hope you get an A-plus! ^_^;

Olga, Tatiana, Marie and Anastasia, the daughters of the Tsar, were four among the many innocents on both sides who perished in the Russian revolution. Innocent, gay, sweet-natured, mischievous, not a word has been recorded against them. Uprooted from their palace home, they adapted most readily to life in sleepy Tobolsk and whether coloring eggs for Easter or playing in the snow, they brought to their new life the same zest they had in the old, more formal one. Did they guess how short a while had to live? If so, they gave no sign of it.

Russian Imperial House of Romanov ♔ historical character profiles

Maria Nikolaevna can easily be called a Russian beauty. Tall, healthy, with sable eyebrows and a bright blush on her open Russian face, she is especially lovely to a Russian heart. You look at her and involuntarily imagine her dressed in the Russian boyar’s sarafan; snowy muslin sleeves around her hands; on the highly decorated bodice semi-precious stone; and above her white brow, a kokoshnik with the traditional pearls. Her eyes illuminate her entire face by a unique, radiant luster; they sometimes seem black as long eyelashes throw shadows over the bright blush of her soft cheeks. She is merry and alive, but she has not yet awakened completely to life; probably concealed in her are the immense forces of a real Russian woman.
