Description du Livre

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.
