    The Romanov Family’s Alphabet v.2 - P is for Poland (Spała).

    Spała, Poland was the location of the Romanov Family’s Hunting Lodge. Once every year as the leaves change, the Romanovs would retreat to Poland for some big-game hunting. Never they knew that it would be a place of sorrow and distress. In the year of 1912, Tsarevich Alexei accidentally slipped into a boat. The little boy was not hurt at first, but as time progressed, the bruise on his leg was swelling fast. Alexei was bedridden and very ill. His mother Alexandra was distraught and suffered from exhaustion because she stayed awake trying to comfort her son, who was in great pain.

    ‘When I am dead, I will not hurt anymore, will it Mama?…When I am dead, build me a little monument of stones in the woods.’ Nearly everyone was ready to announce the death of the Tsarevich to the whole country of Russia. Alexandra wrote a letter to Grigori Rasputin, a Russian mystic and “monk,” begging him to heal her only son and heir to the throne. Alexei miraculously recovered right after Rasputin responded, leading Alexandra to believe him a true healer. After Alexei regained his health, Alexandra never wanted to go back to that “dreadful and dark place.”



    Grand Duchesses Olga Nikolaevna (1895-1918) and Tatiana Nikolaevna (1897-1918), posing for a photograph in 1913. The ‘Big Pair’ was known for being very close to each other, perhaps even more than their younger sisters the ‘Little Pair.’ In fact, they were born just eighteen months apart.



    Oct. 28, 1914
    “…Ortino and Tatiana are running about the room now. Mother is going to receive Maklakov at 9 a.m. and Malama will come, too, which is very pleasant. I took this picture of myself looking at the mirror. It was very hard as my hands were trembling. …I had 7 classes today and tomorrow I am going to have 4 or 5… I am having a Russian class now and Pyotr Alexeyevich is reading Turguenev’s “The Hunter’s Notes” to us…”

    Thank You ohsoromanov for the letter of Anastasia …
