One Hundred Years ago: The Imperial Royal Family of Russia in 1913.

For 300 years the history of Russia was inextricably linked to that of one family: the Romanovs. Tracing their line back to Tsar Michael and claiming a divine right to reign, they shaped the history of Russia, for the better or for worse, over three centuries. Their influence defined the politics, society, art, and philosophy of the time and led to the establishment of Russia as one of the great world powers.

When they gathered to celebrate their tercentenary in 1913, the Romanovs’ grip on Russia had begun to loosen. The strain of World War I had spread unrest throughout Russia. On July 17th, 1918, three hundred and four years of the Romanovs ended when Tsar Nicholas II, his wife and five children were brutally murdered by a Bolshevik execution squad. - Source: The Romanovs: Ruling 1613-1917.

The year of 2013 is the Quatercentenary, 400th anniversary, of the founding of the Romanov Dynasty.

All of the RUSSIAN CROWN JEWELS together. This is an incredibly RARE image. The photo appeared in a 1922 album called “Russian Diamond Fund,” shows the entire Russian crown jewelry collection. Amazing!

Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna and Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna with their greek cousins, Princess Margarita of Greece and Denmark and Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark in 1908.
Margarita and Theodora were both older sisters of Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II. Prince Philip’s DNA was used by scientists to identify the remains of Tsarina Alexandra and her children after their discovery in the woods near Yekaterinburg. Philip is reported to have said, when asked if he’d like to visit the Soviet Union “I would like to go to Russia very much - although the bastards murdered half my family”.

historyofromanovs:

Coronation of the Two Romanov Children, Ivan V and Peter I, 1682.
Ivan and Peter were the sons of Tsar Alexei of Russia. Ivan and Peter became co-regents when their elder brother, Tsar Feodor III, died at just age twenty. Ivan’s reign was only formal, since he had serious physical and mental disabilities. Ivan had a close relationship with his half-brother, Peter. Initially, Ivan did not want to be Tsar, but was eventually persuaded. The brothers were crowned in the Cathedral of the Dormition as “dvoetsarstvenniki” (double tsars). 
During the last decade of his life, Ivan was completely overshadowed by the more energetic Peter. At the age of 27, he was described by foreign ambassadors as senile, paralytic, and almost blind. He died two years later, leaving Peter as the sole Tsar of Russia. Peter later became known as Peter the Great. Peter transformed the Tsardom of Russia to the Russian Empire and Russia became a major European power during his reign. He led a cultural revolution that replaced the traditionalist and medieval social and political system with a modern, scientific, Europe-oriented, and rationalist system. The new capital of the Empire, St. Petersburg, was named after his honor.

„The Grand Duchesses were fast leaving childhood behind them and blossoming into charming girls; they did not greatly resemble one another, each was a type apart, but all were equally lovely in disposition. I cannot believe that any men so inhuman existed as those who, it is said, shot and stabbed those defenceless creatures in the house of death at Ekaterinburg. Apart from their beauty, their sweetness should have pleaded for them, but, if it is true that they have “passed,” then surely no better epitaph could be theirs than the immortal words, “Lovely and pleasant were they in their lives, and in their death they were not divided.” - Lily Dehn
