Yes she rarely joined them. But we can't blame her: the guards weren't glad seeing her. But there's a cute story which took place in Tsarskoe Selo captivity period which Baroness Buxhoeveden recounted in her book in Alix. There it's stated one soldier confronted her with many questions about her love for Russia (as he doubted her love for their country). Alix responded that she really wanted to tour around the country however the consecutive birth of her children and taking care of them herself (she was indeed a hands-on parent if you read more about her) and her subsequent illnesses (her heart problem, sciatica) all precluded her from doing so. The guard was impressed by her openness and kindness that Baroness Buxhoeveden noticed him eventually softening towards the Empress. Their conversation actually went on after those question and answer portion. God know what they talked about and I'm sad it's not possible for Sophie B. to write them down :'( Next time when the Empress came out, that very soldier began helping the Empress whenever he could. Beautiful story..

People here, there are actually lots of books about them currently published - mostly collection of their letters - they are fantastic to read (for fans of course, hehe). However don't ask me how they are or how the books give more info about the children because I haven't bought even one of those books~ I just depended my opinion upon buyers' comments.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has tasked a working group with studying and reburying the remains of two members of the Romanov royal family who were murdered by Bolshevik revolutionaries almost 100 years ago.

Crown Prince Alexei and Grand Duchess Maria were executed along with their other siblings and parents — Tsar Nicholas II and the Empress Alexandra — and family servants in the basement of a house they were being kept in in the Ural Mountains city of Yekaterinburg in 1918 as royalist forces closed in on the city.

I know that yet my comment was referring to the picture posted here, no lecture needed to tell me the cruel ways of men and war towards children and women.....I have plenty of history books that tell the stories.

And some of us have personal experience of such things as well. However, although we all know of cruelties in wars and all over the world, I agree that there is something very compelling about the murder of these four young girls and boy. I sometimes can't look at pictures of them all in happier times without getting a lump in my throat about their fate.
