The House of Romanov was the second and last imperial dynasty to rule over Russia for more than three hundred years, reigning from 1613 until the 1917 overthrow of the monarchy during the February Revolution. The Romanov Dynasty succeeded the Rurik Dynasty after the Time of Troubles. This 300-year chapter saw so many achievements, failures, happy and joyous moments, and sorrowful tragedies. of The Holy Bible And Cross

THIS PHOTO AND STORY LINE ARE COMPLETELY FICTIONThe What-If Wedding of Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna Romanova to Edward, the Prince of Wales in 1921 with her two youngest sisters, Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna Romanova and Queen Anastasia of Belgium. Along with Maria’s two children, Alexander Nikolaevich and Victoria Nikolaevna.Yeah I made this all up using part of the Pan Historia what-if storyline. But, with Maria’s children’s patronymic names are ”Nikolaevich” “Nikolaevna”, I think you can make out who the daddy is ;)
For olga-nikolayevna because she wanted me to do something what-if with Olga.

Yup. Definitely 99%, I would go. I wouldn’t miss that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. :)

22 JULY 2013: "It’s a Boy!" prompting crowds to erupt into spontaneous cheering as the easel displaying the news was placed in the forecourt. It read: "Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 4.24pm today. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well."

Honey, in the Crimea, there is no war. Now many tourists resting there. ) Crimea outside the conflict zone. Do not worry all the palaces in complete safety. Moreover, these gifs from the video that was filmed less than a month ago. )

Yeah, but still, one must be wary of the surroundings and the current situation.

Before and After

A colorized version of the rare black-and-white photograph of fourteen-year-old Maria, 1899-1918, and soon-to-be-eighteen-year-old Olga, 1895-1918, in 1913.  A better quality of the full colorized version can be seen on my deviantART page.

The Romanovs and their palaces. Ливадийский дворец | Livadia Palace | Russia | Crimea | a few miles west of Yalta. 

We cannot find any words to express our joy and pleasure to have such a house, built exactly as we wanted. The architect Krasnov is an amazing fine fellow" - wrote Nicholas II to his mother, the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna on September 20th, 1911, after his first visit to Livadia.

Livadia was originally built in 1911 as a summer palace for Nicholas II. The palace was designed by the Russian architect Nikolay Petrovich Krasnov in the Italian Renaissance style with some features of Byzantine, Arabian and Gothic architecture in addition. N.P. Krasnov managed to successfully inscribe the palace into the surrounding landscape and situate the building in such a way that all its sides were absolutely open for the sun. The palace contains 116 rooms, with interiors furnished in different styles. There are 5 grand rooms in the palace: Vestibule, the majestic Dining room (so-called “White Hall”), an English billiard-room, Rest room and a Tsar’s study of maple wood. This palace was the site of the historic Yalta Conference of 1945, when Joseph Stalin hosted the British prime minister, Winston Churchill, and the U.S. president, Franklin Roosevelt, as these three world leaders decided the fate of eastern Europe after World War II. Today the palace is a museum.
