Feb 26, 2021 WHAT HAPPENED to the Russian royal family, the ROMANOVS? The (almost) last Tsar of Russia and his family were brutally killed in 1918, but what led Nicolas, his wife the Tsarina Alexandra, their daughters Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia and their son, Tsarevich Alexei to their grisly end in Ipatiev House (or ‘the House of Special Purpose’) in Ekaterinburg? What’s more, what happened to their bodies and why were there rumours that Anastasia survived? This Russian royal history documentary from History Calling goes back to that fateful night and beyond, explaining how and why they died and what happened to their bodies. It also answers the long-running questions, did Anastasia escape and survive and who was Anna Anderson?

What happens now to the Kohinoor diamond, stolen by the British from India, after Queen Elizabeth II’s death: Details

10 September, 2022

https://www.opindia.com/2022/09/kohinoor-diamond-stolen-by-british-from-india-after-queen-elizabeth-death-details/

During the coronation of King Charles, the Crown of Queen Elizabeth, which now holds the Kohinoor, will be placed on Queen Consort Camilla.

Kohinoor, the world’s most contentious diamond, is about to change hands. The diamond is currently placed in the Imperial State Crown, which was produced in 1937 for King George VI’s coronation and eventually passed on to Elizabeth II. The diamond, however, is scheduled to be worn by the Queen’s daughter-in-law and Prince Charles III’s wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, during the coronation of the new King.

Camilla has been named Queen Consort of the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth states as the wife of King Charles III, and during the coronation of King Charles, the Crown of Queen Elizabeth, which now holds the Kohinoor, will be placed on her head. The crown was made in 1937 for Queen Elizabeth, wife of King George VI, and as she continued to wear it after her daughter Elizabeth II became the Queen, the crown is also known as Queen Mother’s Crown. The Crown is made of platinum and decorated with about 2,800 diamonds, the most famous of them being the Kohinoor.

However, while several Indian media reports said that Kohinoor is fitted on the Imperial State Crown, and Camilla will inherit this crown, which is completely wrong. Imperial State Crown is the crown of the Monarch, which can be a King or Queen, which means this crown will go to King Charles III. Moreover as informed above, the Kohinoor diamond is on the Queen Mother’s Crown, not the Imperial State Crown. The Imperial State Crown has another large diamond, the Cullinan II from Africa.

The Queen Mother’s Crown is currently on display along with the other British Royal Crown Jewels in the Jewel House at the Tower of London. These crown jewels are Royal property, and actually, they don’t become personal property of anyone. This means while Camilla will wear it during the coronation, it does not become her personal property.

Heinrich Himmler: Architect of The Final Solution | WW2 Documentary

Jul 9, 2021 It would be easy to cast all blame for the holocaust on one man, Adolf Hitler; the leader of Nazi Germany and the man whose face has now come to personify true evil. However, no one man could truly achieve such horrors on their own. From the start of his political career, he had followers. People who would flock to his cause and would ultimately help propel him to a stage where he could inflict such tragedy on the world. Heinrich Himmler, the head of the vaunted SS and one of the chief architects of the holocaust against the Jews and anyone else who did not fit his vision of a pure Germany. In this documentary, we will delve in to this terrifying figure of history and explore the career of a man who on both ideological and practical levels is literally responsible for the deaths of millions.

@FUCKtheNewWorldQrder

The Romanov family ruled Imperial Russia before Vladimir Lenin’s Bolshevik revolution in 1917. Lenin and his communist colleagues wasted no time in selling off priceless Tsarist jewels and, amid the chaos of civil war, numerous masterpieces were lost to history. The fate of the missing Romanov jewels remains one of the world’s greatest mysteries – but a huge breakthrough came with the release of previously classified KGB files. Many of the lost treasures went missing in Siberia, with precious gold and silver dating to the brief period of Siberian independence after Lenin’s power grab – all of which had been in the hands of White forces seeking to roll back Red advances.

Tsar Nicholas II’s personal jewellery and valuables, along with items owned by Empress Alexandra, were among the treasure trove.

KGB files show that Soviet authorities repeatedly hunted for the treasures after the Tsar and his family were murdered in Yekaterinburg in July 1918.

Will the Real Anastasia Romanov Please Stand Up?

When the Russian Royal Family was assassinated in 1918, rumors swirled that a daughter, Anastasia, had secretly escaped. People are still obsessing over the story a century later.

The Romanov Four Sisters: Before the Storm

Apr 14, 2021

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hc9wbDrnGZo

The Romanov Royal Martyrs

The Romanov sisters were the most photographed princesses of their day, yet the world knew very little of the four girls in the official portraits. The daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra have often been considered nothing more than the pretty backdrop to the larger and more dramatic story of their parents and tragic hemophiliac brother Alexey. Despite what portraits depict and behind the dutiful image existed four very vibrant and fascinating and most of all, distinct, personalities. A two-part series focusing on Tsar Nicholas II's four daughters - Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia - combining interviews with leading historians, stunning archive footage, and dramatic reconstruction to reveal the real girls behind the fairy-tale images. This is a remake of a video produced and published by BBC in 2014, entitled "Russia's Lost Princesses". This new version features colorized pictures by Olga Shirnina (Klimbim), newsreel footage, and a selection of photographs from the State Archive of the Russian Federation (GARF).

The Romanov Royal Martyrs

The four daughters of Russia’s last Emperor continue to fascinate people around the world more than a century after their brutal killings in Ekaterinburg, 1918.

Often thought of as a single unit using a nickname, they sometimes used to refer to all four of them, OTMA, seen as beautiful young ladies in white dresses, or as dutiful wartime nurses, or even as naïve young women who had few friends and little contact with the world outside the palace, their lives have been steeped in modern-day mythology. However, with the opening of the Russian State Archives following the fall of the Soviet Union, the letters and diaries of the Grand Duchesses are now revealing interesting and fascinating details about their sadly short lives.

The Romanov Royal Martyrs

Christmas 1917 would be the last for the Romanov family. Isolated from the world, exiled in Siberia, they lived the joy of the feast of love, distributing gifts to the members of their staff that they had made themselves. Under house arrest and closely guarded, they were able to organize a traditional Christmas that was in many ways their closest family holiday.

This is the story of Grand Duke Michael Romanov, brother of Tsar Nicholas II, and the first Romanov to be killed by the Bolsheviks. The life and death of this third son of Alexander III served to punctuate the trials of the last Tsar's reign, as well as the horror and brutality of the regimes that followed. His ancestor, Peter the Great, made history. Misha, as he was known to his family, was swept into a political tidal wave, over which he had little control.

 

The Lost Life of Alexis Romanov | with Jonathan Jackson

Dec 16, 2020

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBVjDqHE_n4

The Romanov Royal Martyrs

For the first time, a video production tells the story of the life of Tsarevich Alexis Romanov, which was brutally cut short very early, leaving behind a legacy of love and forgiveness. The story is narrated by five-time Emmy award-winning actor Jonathan Jackson, who also gives his personal testimony of love for the Romanov family at the end of the video. Alexis was killed together with his entire family and four of their retainers. According to the accounts of the murderers, Alexis was the last one to die. He was 14 years old. Little Alexis was the first male child born heir to the throne during the reign of his father from the seventeenth century onward. The little boy suffered from hemophilia. The most terrible episodes for Alexis’ health happened when he was injured in the joints, which caused unbearable pain. When Alexis was well, however, the whole life of the palace was transformed. Everything seemed bathed in sweet light. This a remarkable production featuring an abundance of black and white archival photos and astounding new colorizations by Olga Shirnina. Furthermore, the video includes all the newsreel footage with Tsarevich Alexis in the highest quality.

Alexei Romanov - Wikipedia

Alexei Romanov may refer to: Alexis of Russia, Tsar of Russia from 1645 - 1676,

Alexei Romanov’s relatives ran the world. Not only was he heir to the House of Romanov, the dynasty that had ruled Russia for nearly 300 years, but he had ancestors in the German and Danish royal families as well.

But his most powerful connection came from his great-grandmother: Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom.

However, anyone who knows much about Queen Victoria’s family knows that her genes had one fatal flaw. She carried the gene that caused hemophilia

About Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia

Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia was the youngest daughter of Czar Nicholas II and Czarina Alexandra. She has been the subject of many investigations, books, and even a Disney movie.

Legend

Anastasia lived a very privileged life behind the castle walls and had 4 beautiful sisters and 1 brother. The entire family was overthrown and taken away as prisoners by the Bolsheviks. The family and servants were shot and bayoneted to death as they were waiting for what they thought was to be transportation to a new location. Due to not having the location of the bodies it has been the subject of debate if one of the children survived. There have been numerous imposters claiming to be the long lost Grand Duchess. The Disney movie, Anastasia, is based on the rumors of Anastasia surviving the massacre of her family.

The End of the Romanov Dynasty

Nov 2, 2020 On March the 2nd, 1917, two representatives of the Duma, arrived in Pskov to receive Nicholas’ II abdication. That was the end of the Romanov Dynasty. The video follows the events from the February Revolution 1917 until the murder of the Romanov family and the discovery of their remains, in 1991. One of the main features of this video is the film with V. Shulgin, one of the two Duma members who met Tsar Nicholas II and received from him his abdication statement. Shulgin related the story in 1957, after Stalin’s death, in a film that was shot in the very same train compartment where they met Nicholas II and received his abdication.

Testimonies of Red Guards: Romanovs Imprisoned | Part 1

Oct 26, 2021 Valentin Speranski, a former professor at the University of Saint Petersburg, who emigrated to Paris after the Revolution, visited Ekaterinburg in 1924 to give a series of lectures. While he was there, he held interviews with people of various political parties and stations, including the Bolsheviks, who had at one time any connection with the terrible events that had taken place there only six years earlier. One of the more important persons who gave information to Speranski was Anatoly Yakimov, who served as a guard at the Ipatiev House.

The Romanov Four Sisters | Part 1: Before the Storm

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hc9wbDrnGZo

Apr 14, 2021 The Romanov sisters were the most photographed princesses of their day, yet the world knew very little of the four girls in the official portraits. The daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra have often been considered nothing more than the pretty backdrop to the larger and more dramatic story of their parents and tragic hemophiliac brother Alexey. Despite what portraits depict and behind the dutiful image existed four very vibrant and fascinating and most of all, distinct, personalities. A two-part series focusing on Tsar Nicholas II's four daughters - Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia - combining interviews with leading historians, stunning archive footage, and dramatic reconstruction to reveal the real girls behind the fairy-tale images. This is a remake of a video produced and published by BBC in 2014, entitled "Russia's Lost Princesses". This new version features colorized pictures by Olga Shirnina (Klimbim), newsreel footage, and a selection of photographs from the State Archive of the Russian Federation (GARF).

Testimony of a guard: "It is a shame to admit it, but all of us were guilty as to those unfortunates. We made fun of the defenseless girls. We would keep on continually offending those young girls, and watched their every move."

In 1613 The Zemsky Sobor (the National Assembly) adopted a decision to invite Michael Fyodorovich Romanov to become tsar of Russia. This decision was announced in Red Square in front of numerous crowds of people: “Michael Fyodorovich shall be tsar and lord of Muscovy and all the Russian state.” In order to prevent disturbances, Michael Romanov had to take a terrible sin upon his soul – to execute a 3 year-old boy… The most vivid pages of Russian history and the establishment and consolidation of Russian state power are associated with the eighteen Russian Tsars of the House of Romanov which include such historic names as Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, Nicholas I and Alexanders I, II and III. The dynasty ended with the brutal assassination of the last Tsar, Nicholas II and his family by the Bolsheviks in Ekaterinburg in 1917.

Dec 19, 2014 All episodes: It was 20 years before the beginning of the XX century. The country was in fever. Never before tsar’s power had been as unstable as at that time. It was Alexander III Aleksandrovich who had to take on responsibility for the future of the empire. He was able to extricate the country from economic crisis and turn it into one of the world’s mightiest powers. It was in this condition – at the peak of its power – that the country was inherited by Nicholas Aleksandrovich Romanov.

Queen Victoria's Sons

Queen Victoria gave birth to 9 children in 17 years. But she wasn’t exactly the world’s greatest mother. Victoria’s older daughters were married to important future monarchs and scales the peaks of European politics. But when Albert died at 42 Victoria fell into an intense depression and used her younger daughters as an emotional crutch, selfishly stunting their lives and freedom. None the less they all lived compelling lives; one a sculptress and suffragette and two captivated by nursing.

Here are the stories of

Queen Victoria’s five fascinating daughters:

Victoria, Empress of Germany (1840-1901)

Alice, Grand Duchess of Hesse (1843-1878)

Helena, Princess of Schleswig-Holstein (1846-1923)

Louise, Duchess of Argyll (1848-1931)

Beatrice, Princess of Battenberg (1857-1944)

Romanovs: The Real Story

Oct 6, 2020 Unknown and unrevealed facts, which evince that many truths in regard to the life and death of the Romanovs remain silenced or distorted to this day. Nicholas II was surrounded by the forceful presence of his mother, the Dowager Empress, and his uncles. This generation of Romanovs could have, under normal circumstances, expected another two decades of service to and influence over their nation, and it was with both regret and misgivings that they kissed the hands of their new young sovereign and his Hessian bride.

ANNE BOLEYN’S EXECUTION. Hollywood versus history. Most famous execution in history. History Calling

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBczwBsGCqM

Jul 2, 2021 There have been many depictions of ANNE BOLEYN'S EXECUTION on screen, but how accurate are some of the best known portrayals of the Queen’s final minutes? In this week’s History Calling video, I’m going to pit Hollywood versus history by looking at three of the best known movies and TV shows about Anne’s life from recent years and comparing them to each other and the historical record to see who did it best. The video will ask how accurate was Wolf Hall, starring Claire Foy, The Other Boleyn Girl starring Natalie Portman and The Tudors, starring Natalie Dormer, when it came time to show how the death of Anne Boleyn played out. It will look at Anne Boleyn’s final speech on the scaffold on 19 May 1536, what she wore, her demeanour and how those around her acted. This is a six wives documentary with a difference, as we look at how arguably the most famous execution in history, of perhaps the most famous Queen of England has been portrayed through a medium which didn’t come into existence until nearly 300 years after the event. At the end, I’ll ask who you think makes the best Anne Boleyn on screen.

PRINCESS DIANA’S SAPPHIRE AND PEARL CHOKER NECKLACE

12.18.2020 by THE COURT JEWELLER

https://www.thecourtjeweller.com/2020/12/princess-dianas-sapphire-and-pearl.html

One of the pieces of royal jewelry that I’m asked about most frequently is the iconic sapphire, diamond, and pearl choker necklace worn by the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

The large sapphire and diamond cluster, one of Diana’s most sparkling wedding presents, was a gift from her new grandmother-in-law.

In The Royal Jewels, fashion historian Suzy Menkes described the piece: “The Queen Mother’s wedding present to Diana was a duck egg of a sapphire, surrounded by a double row of diamonds and mounted as a brooch.”

One of Diana’s first public appearances in the jewels came in February 1982, when she wore the brooch pinned to the lace trim of her Belleville Sassoon dress for a dinner at 11 Downing Street in honor of the British Film Institute.

Diana wore the new necklace setting of the piece for a famous visit to the White House in Washington, D.C., in November 1985.

The dinner, hosted by President and Mrs. Reagan, was a star-studded ’80s event. Above, you can see Diana wearing the necklace as she meets Tom Selleck.

But, of course, we’ll all remember this necklace, dress, and event mostly because of Diana’s famous dance with John Travolta.

Diana’s final appearance in the necklace came in December 1996, when she wore it at the Met Gala in New York, which she attended with a friend, Harper’s Bazaar editor Liz Tilberis. The sapphire cluster was one of Diana’s personally-owned pieces of jewelry, so it was almost certainly inherited by her sons after her death in 1997. We haven’t seen it in public in 24 years.

 

Diana wasn’t a frequent brooch-wearer, and at some point the sapphire and diamond cluster was adapted so that it could be worn as the clasp of a seven-stranded pearl choker necklace.
