I guess guys just can’t take the fact that I know some great stories about the Romanovs and that I might want to share them once in a while (e.g. when we’re dating, making out or whatever). Their loss.
Off you go again alone and it is with a very heavy heart I part from you. No more kisses and tender caresses for ever so long … I want to bury myself in you, hold you tight in my arms, make you feel the intense love of mine.
You are my very life Sweetheart, and every separation gives such endless heartache.
”—Alexandra Feodorovna’s letter to her husband Tsar Nicholas Romanov II (via dorkstories)
Ohmy I love your blog sooooo much! I'm a Romanov fan too, and people think my obsession (I call it passion) is weird. Haha :)) Where do you get all these wonderful pictures? It's amazing! Some of these I have NEVER seen before :)
If being weird means being passionate about something or someone instead of wandering around pretending to like what everyone else likes, then I guess you just came to the right place. I’ve been in love with the Romanovs for many years now and I’m just so happy to share my passion with my lovely followers. I don’t care if people think we are all a bunch of weirdos - I’ve seen some creepy Tumblr accounts out there and I’m pretty sure that loving the Romanovs isn’t even weird by comparison.
About the pics, some of them come from my personal files (aka taken from the Internet so long ago that I can’t find their sources), others are from Alexander’s Palace Forum and the rest I find through Google Images and random blogs.
I start university this year, your blog inspired me to minor in history - specializing in Russian. Thank you.
REALLY? Like, for real? WOW. That is so… I don’t even have words to describe how amazing that is. I never imagined that some day my passion for Russian History and for the Romanovs would actually inspire someone to make such an important decision. I’m so happy for you and I wish you all the best :)
