Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: De bejubelde auteur van Stalins jeugdjaren en andere meeslepende biografieën heeft met De Romanovs een toegankelijke, levendige en zeer onthullende geschiedenis geschreven over de uitzonderlijke mannen en vrouwen die Rusland drie eeuwen regeerden. In dit fascinerende werk wendt Simon Sebag Montefiore zijn talent voor geschiedschrijving aan om het verhaal te vertellen van de grootste en meest complexe keizers en keizerinnen van de Romanov- dynastie (1613-1918), over hoe hun hof functio neerde, en over het evenwicht tussen persoonlijkheid en macht bij elke tsaar. Gebruikmakend van archiefmateriaal dat na de val van de USSR beschikbaar kwam, slaagt Montefiore erin de werkelijke wereld tot leven te brengen van legendarische persoonlijkheden als Catharina de Grote en Nicolaas II, en laat hij de lezer kennismaken met een aantal minder bekende, maar alleen al om hun seksuele uitspattingen en andere scandaleuze of decadente wederwaardigheden des te meer tot de verbeelding sprekende leden van deze eminente familie. Een lijvig boek over lusten en onlusten, intriges, samenzweringen, fascinerende karakters, politiek en macht. Een boek dat de diepere wortels van het huidige Rusland genadeloos blootlegt en dat van de eerste tot de laatste bladzij zowel duizelingwekkend informatief als extreem onderhoudend is.

READING: Pulitzer-prijswinnaar Robert K. Massie schetst in ‘Nicolaas en Alexandra’ een fascinerend panorama van de laatste jaren van het Russische tsarenrijk. Op 17 juli 1918 werden tsaar Nicolaas II, zijn vrouw Alexandra en hun kinderen vermoord door de bolsjewieken. Massie geeft in dit boek een intrigerend beeld van het hofleven en de politieke ontwikkelingen die aan deze moord vooraf gingen. Zowel in de privésfeer als in de politiek hadden Nicolaas en Alexandra het zwaar. Hun zoon Alexis leed aan bloederziekte en Nicolaas’ politieke naïviteit zorgde ervoor dat de obscure monnik Raspoetin grote invloed aan het hof kreeg. Aan de hand van dagboeken, brieven en memoires geeft Massie in ‘Nicolaas en Alexandra’ een prachtige karakterschets van de hoofdfiguren in dit historische drama. Eerder verscheen van Massie de succesvolle titel ‘Peter de Grote’.

Will they be able to rescue Alexei¹s family before it¹s too late?

READING: Abundant, newly discovered sources shatter long-held beliefs The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 revealed, among many other things, a hidden wealth of archival documents relating to the imprisonment and eventual murder of Tsar Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra, and their children. Emanating from sources both within and close to the Imperial Family as well as from their captors and executioners, these often-controversial materials have enabled a new and comprehensive examination of one the pivotal events of the twentieth century and the many controversies that surround it. Based on a careful analysis of more than 500 of these previously unpublished documents, along with numerous newly discovered photos, The Fate of the Romanovs makes compelling revisions to many long-held beliefs about the Romanovs' final months and moments.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: How did Nicholas II, Russia’s last Tsar, meet his death? Shot point blank in a bungled execution by radical Bolsheviks in the Urals, Nicholas and his family disappeared from history in the Soviet era. But in the 1970s, a local geologist and a crime fiction writer discovered the location of their clandestine mass grave, and secretly removed three skulls, before reburying them, afraid of the consequences of their find. Yet the history of Nicholas’ execution and the discovery of his remains are not the only stories connected with the death of the last Tsar. This book recounts the horrific details of his death and the thrilling discovery of the bones, and also investigates the alternative narratives that have grown up around these events. Stories include the contention that the Tsar’s killing was a Jewish plot, in which Nicholas’ severed head was taken to Moscow as proof of his death; tales of would-be survivors of the execution, self-confessed children of the Tsar claiming their true identity; and accounts of miracles performed by Nicholas, who was made a saint by the Russian church in 2000. Not least among these alternative narratives is the romanticization of the Romanovs, epitomized by the numerous photographs of the family released from the Russian archives.

READING: One hundred years ago, revolutionaries murdered Russia’s last imperial family. Why couldn’t they escape their fate? On 17 July 1918, the Russian Revolution came for the former Tsar Nicholas, his wife Alexandra, and their children – Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia and Alexey. The House of Romanov died in a blaze of bullets. It didn’t have to end this way. The Romanovs’ royal relatives in Europe and the Allied governments – as well as monarchists within Russia – were making every effort to get them out before it was too late, negotiating a tricky web of political – and personal – challenges. Their plans to evacuate the royal family by land, sea, and even sky all came to naught. Why were the world’s mightiest nations powerless to save the Romanovs? Historian Helen Rappaport weaves an incredible detective story, drawing on an unprecedented range of unseen sources. Through countless twists and turns, she reveals a tragic story of fierce loyalty, bitter rivalries and devastating betrayals, culminating in the execution of the abandoned Imperial family. A remarkable new work of history from Helen Rappaport, author of Ekaterinburg: The Last Days of the Romanovs.

READING: The Romanovs by Simon Sebag Montefiore | Summary & Analysis Preview: Simon Sebag Montefiore’s The Romanovs: 1613-1918 is a chronicle of the Romanov dynasty over its 300-year reign in Russia. The book focuses on the personalities, choices, and actions of the royal family including their sexual and romantic relationships. Montefiore provides extensive quotations from the letters and diaries of the Romanovs, many of them unpublished. By telling the story of the Romanovs, Montefiore also tells the story of Russia’s rise to empire. The reign of the Romanovs began after the death in 1598 of Feodor Ivanovich, the last of the descendants of Ivan the Terrible. Numerous false heirs—called the False Dmitris—claimed the right to the throne. At the same time, Russia experienced a brutal famine, and Polish and Lithuanian forces invaded the country. The chaos of the Time of Troubles led a national assembly to choose Michael Feodorovich, nephew of a former tsarina, to be the next monarch. Michael was underage at the beginning of his reign so his father, Filaret, Patriarch of Russia, became effectively the first Romanov ruler… PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Grand Duke Sandro Mikhailovich lazing in the grass with Nicky Romanov in May 1883 ... Within twenty-five years, the Romanovs, the most powerful, the most vicious and arguably the most bizarre imperial family of modern times will have ceased to rule Russia through a mixture of haplessness, indolence and fatalism. Sandro was a crucial witness to the collapse of his family. He was the cousin, brother-in-law and close friend of the last tsar, Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. He was with Nicky when thousands of Russian peasants died at Khodynka Field during Nicky's coronation; he was with Nicky in the lead-up to the disastrous Russo-Japanese War; he was with Nicky during the failed revolution of 1905-6; he was with Nicky when the Russian Duma was established in an attempt to ward off future revolutions; he was with Nicky as Russia moved determinedly toward a military showdown with Germany; he was with Nicky fighting the German army of the Eastern Front during the First World War; he was with Nicky when he abdicated in favour of his brother, Michael, who refused the throne. This is a riveting first-hand account of the final days of the Russian Empire and of what it was like to be a member of the Russian Imperial Family at that time. And to our great good fortune, while Sandro may have been no Stolypin, he was a keen observer and an excellent writer. Anyone intrigued by the last days of the Romanovs as the ruling family of Russia should read this book.

READING: The Romanovs were the most successful dynasty of modern times, ruling a sixth of the world's surface. How did one family turn a war-ruined principality into the world's greatest empire? And how did they lose it all? This is the intimate story of twenty tsars and tsarinas, some touched by genius, some by madness, but all inspired by holy autocracy and imperial ambition. Montefiore's gripping chronicle reveals their secret world of unlimited power and ruthless empire-building, overshadowed by palace conspiracy, family rivalries, sexual decadence and wild extravagance, and peopled by a cast of adventurers, courtesans, revolutionaries and poets. Written with dazzling literary flair, drawing on new archival research, THE ROMANOVS is at once an enthralling chronicle of triumph and tragedy, love and death, a universal study of power, and an essential portrait of the empire that still defines Russia today.

READING: On the centenary of the death of Rasputin comes a definitive biography that will dramatically change our understanding of this fascinating figure A hundred years after his murder, Rasputin continues to excite the popular imagination as the personification of evil. Numerous biographies, novels, and films recount his mysterious rise to power as Nicholas and Alexandra's confidant and the guardian of the sickly heir to the Russian throne. His debauchery and sinister political influence are the stuff of legend, and the downfall of the Romanov dynasty was laid at his feet. But as the prizewinning historian Douglas Smith shows, the true story of Rasputin's life and death has remained shrouded in myth. A major new work that combines probing scholarship and powerful storytelling, Rasputinseparates fact from fiction to reveal the real life of one of history's most alluring figures. Drawing on a wealth of forgotten documents from archives in seven countries, Smith presents Rasputin in all his complexity--man of God, voice of peace, loyal subject, adulterer, drunkard. Rasputin is not just a definitive biography of an extraordinary and legendary man but a fascinating portrait of the twilight of imperial Russia as it lurched toward catastrophe.

READING: Since glasnost began, Russia's most eminent historians have taken advantage of new archival access and the end of censorship and conformity to reassess and reinterpret their history. Through this process they are linking up with Russia's great historiographic tradition while producing work that is fresh and modern. In "The Emperors and Empresses of Russia", renowned Russian historians tell the story of the Romanovs as complex individual personalities and as key institutional actors in Russian history, from the empire builder Peter I to the last tsar, Nicholas II. These portraits are contributions to the writing of history, partaking neither of wooden ideologisation nor of naive romanticisation.
