The Royal Victorian Chain awarded by a British monarch to Russias last Emperor, Nicolas II, has been presented on long-term lease to Moscow Kremlin Museums from the art collection of the British Royal Family a gesture of friendship, Russias deputy culture minister told a handover ceremony on Thursday.

"We are witnessing an historic moment acquisition of a priceless relic, a symbol of friendship and cooperation between Russia and Great Britain," Vladimir Aristarkhov said. "This is especially symbolic coming on the eve of 100 years since the events of 1917 resulted in the tragic death of Emperor Nicolas II," he said.

Reading the article, it appears that it isn't a "gift" from the British Monarch to the Kremlin Museum, but just a loan to the Museum. So the Queen remains the owner of the Chain, if I have correctly understood.

So... I guess that we can only hope that Maria and Alexei will be buried again in 2017 or 2018.

I had written a post on Empress Alexandra's wardrobe in the Winter Palace:

Winter Palace Research (Зимний дворец): Empress Alexandra’s Wardrobe on 2nd Floor Mezzanine of the Winter Palace

And then yesterday I was thrilled to see the Director of the Hermitage's wonderful video on the Empress' dress:

100 years ago today saw [with the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia] the beginning of a cataclysm of vast scope and enormous tragedy. Not merely for the 'principal players', but for the entire Russian people.
Vicious civil Wars, WHOLESALE organised extra judicial Murder, repression, mass flight, starvation and barbarism on a scale never before seen was the direct result...
So [imho] it's 'God save the Tsar'.. who for all his manifest faults was a better,more caring ruler of his peoples than those who usurped him.

They were all terrible. The Russian people never had a fighting chance. The Tsars were uninterested in improving the lot of those underneath them. Please don't mention freeing the serfs. You then had to educate them, fed them and grant them land. The Tsars and family lived in enormous splendor. Beyond any other reigning monarch. The war did not improve their lot, but at least they got education and work. Either way it was a great failure.

In history, there are no givens or History knows no "if". The enlightened regimes viewed Russia's Byzantine approaches as alien. The enlightened western Europe detested/detests/will detest Russia in all its forms. Hopefully new generations of tough pragmatic Russians will take care of the country.

I wonder how things would be if the European nations in the West ever faced what Eastern Europeans have had to.

One thing I will never understand, is why the West believes that Russia and Russians have to justify themselves at all. Russia does not owe anyone an explanation for her choices and the direction she goes in. The West needs to stop trying to pressure Russia to conform to Western ways.

Fully agree.

I see sometimes instagram accounts where you can see plenty of photos of the children. Despite the political affairs (which were terrible, Russian pple was starving at that point) I cannot help but being really impressed by the tragic end overall for the children. However I know this is the way sadly History has worked until now. So sad.

I read British author Coryne Hall's book about her.

After Nicholas ended the affair in preparation for his marriage to Alix of Hesse, Mathilde entered into a sort of menage a trois with three of his relatives.
