Royal Russia Annual No. 5 - Winter 2014 - NOW IN STOCK!
Topic: Books

The latest issue of our official magazine is now available. More than 100 pages of text and over 100 black and white photographs. Included in this issue are the following 8 full-length articles:

A Life of Servitude: Grand Duchess Alexandra Petrovna of Oldenburg - 19 pages with 14 photographs!

- Irene W. Galaktionova takes an in-depth look into the life of Grand Duchess Alexandra Petrovna (1838-1900), wife of the Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolayevich, Senior (1831-1891), and the mother of the Grand Dukes Nicholas Nikolayevich, Junior (1856-1929), and Peter Nikolayevich (1864-1931). After the breakup of her marriage, she retired from Court life to become a nun in 1889. Alexandra Petrovna died at Pokrov of Our Lady Monastery in Kiev on 25 April [O.S. 13 April] 1900, when she was 61. 

Finland Under the Tsars. An Uneasy Relationship - 19 pages with 22 photographs!

- Coryne Hall writes about the association between the Tsars of Russia and Finland from the reign of Alexander I to Nicholas II, with particular emphasis on the visits the Tsars paid there (both official and on their holidays). 

My Russia: The Petrovsky Travelling Palace, Moscow - 14 pages with 17 photographs!

- Paul Gilbert writes about the history of the Petrovsky Travelling Palace in Moscow. The palace has a fascinating history as the final stop for Russia’s sovereigns before their entry into Moscow for their coronations. Seven emperors and empresses of Russia (Catherine II to Nicholas II) stayed here, and one unwelcome emperor of France, Napoleon Bonaparte in 1812. Contemporary notes on the restoration of the palace are based on the author’s recent visit to the palace in October 2013. Richly illustrated with photographs by Paul Gilbert.

- Jason Grant writes about the history and fate of the country retreats of Russia’s aristocracy, and includes many of his own photographs.

The Lilacs of Tsarskoye Selo - 5 pages with 3 photographs!

- Ekaterina Eparinova offers a charming history of the lilac at Tsarskoye Selo, the favourite bloom of the last Russian empress, Alexandra Feodorovna.

-  An interview with Vladimir Soloviev, Chief Major Crimes Investigator for the CID of the Public Prosecution Office of the Russian Federation

 The Fall of the Romanovs - 11 pages with 10 photographs!
