People on these unique family photo enjoy life, not knowing that just a few years, their idyll comes to a tragic end. This loving family looks like a typical pre-revolutionary middle class family, but if you look closely, you can learn a couple of the Romanov children.
Nicholas II — mixed personality, but the fact that he was an exemplary family man, confirmed even by his enemies. The father of five children and a loving husband, all the free time he spent with his family, and thanks to his passion for photography in the archives left many family photos. In our material you will see rare photos, which were recently exhibited at the science Museum in London.
These rare photographs from the family albums of the Romanovs made a few years before their murders. The maps show the everyday life of the Royal family: Emperor Nicholas II Aleksandrovich enjoy the holiday with your loved ones. In some pictures His Majesty himself drives the boat on the lake, playing with children in the snow, walking, and children spend time in the company of their peers. Obviously, it was happy for the whole Romanov family time.
Four boys, including the Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaevich, in costumes reminiscent of a naval uniform, pose in front of the tent.
These photographs — stunning in terms of disclosure of the everyday life of the Royal family. On them the Emperor and his entourage look natural, like normal people, not a symbol of the last dynasty of the Russian Empire.
The Romanovs enjoyed life, controlling the wealth and resources of the vast Russian Empire. Some historians call Nicholas II one of the most powerful rulers of that time.
In 1979, the year the expedition led by A. N. Avdonina and G. T. Ryabova discovered, presumably the remains of the Royal family using old maps. This hypothesis was confirmed only in 2007, after conducting DNA tests.
The Emperor and his entourage ended his days in the dank basement of one of the houses of Yekaterinburg. The sentence was executed according to the decree of the Council of peasants and workers. All members of the Royal family, killed in July 1918, was canonized almost a century later in 2000.
In these photos the Emperor, his children and servants – they all spend their time in amusements and fun. It is possible that the Governor could not even imagine at the moment a possible threat by the Bolsheviks.
The pictures, presumably, were taken by Herbert Galloway Stewart, who was a tutor of English in the entourage of the Emperor in the period from 1908 to 1915. Presented images are part of a collection of 22 albums, previously unexplored.
The value of pictures lies in the fact that they show the life of the ruler and his family.
And here, the Royal entourage was captured during winter Cycling.
