if you ask Maria- it's her birth right to rule the great mother russia. the romanovs should not be brought back to power. besides the living relatives are relatives of the tragically killed heirs. they have not been involved in ruling the county. they have been one of those relatives that just expects things to get handled to them on a silver platter by you. jmho.

I do think that the other Romanovs just don't want to impose themselves on Russia; they just chill out and basically live life unobtrusively.

not exactly, I think they were / or should be / given the status of saints due to the way they died - defenseless. if there is any chance that a mistake was made with the identity of the bodies - it needs to be sorted before the church makes a mistake.

At that time lot of people died defenseless and many because of the Romanovs.

The Romanovs had a cruel and merciless rule.

It was karma getting back on the family.

Yes, but I still don't think the children should have been murdered.  thumbsdown

Like Louis XVI, Nicholas had abdicated and was technically a private citizen; that is what makes his death and the death of his family so pointless, a complete and utter waste. Like Louis XVI, he was relieved to have abdicated all power and even when power transferred to Grand Duke Michael, Michael signed an act of abdication granting a constitution.

Yesterday, the 17th, was the anniversary of the murder of the Romanovs.   I always think it is the 18th.

I find it intriguing, that despite the prominence of the family, the Romanovs are a VERY low-key family. Never covered often in the mainstream press, never a regular fixture in the tabloids, and certainly not known to mix in the jet set, at least not the jet set that the Windsors get mixed up with.

^ The fact that the remnants of the three surviving branches of the Romanov family aren't better known is, IMO, because nobody is particularly interested in displaced royals. The dead Imperial family is another matter. Those that remain, living in Europe and elsewhere, are among a gaggle of descendants of people who once occupied thrones or were their relatives. Among them the Romanian, Albabian, Greek royals etc. (At least Constantine of Greece and Michael of Romania were once Kings.)

I suppose the best known Romanov today is Maria Vladimerovna and her son Georgi, and even they would be unrecognised by the vast majority of ordinary Russians. There have been feuds in the Romanov family about the rights to a long-gone throne and none of them would be able to succeed anyway under the old House rules as all of them had forebears who contracted unequal marriages.

Thing is, that the rest of the nobles left prefer to recognize Prince Rostislav as the Head of the House and literally *despise* Maria and her pork son. Despite the loss of their throne, unofficially they have a lot of influence and weight, just not in a more open sense.

I agree with you both Rosella & KF.. The general public isn't curious about the Romanovs other the main branch,  they were killed so long ago.. If they do come across a story about Maria & her son, the first thing they will notice is their appearance.. I *despise* to seem shallow, but in this day and age of the internet,physical appearance is a main factor a deciding factor in some instances .  They may still  be important in the former ruling  circles but on to the general public  , they're just two unattractive  people wishing for the old days that ended before they were born  ..

The Vladimir branch has always been eager to take over. Even BEFORE it was confirmed that the Imperial Family had been exterminated, Cyril (then Grand Duke Cyril) claimed headship, even though the Dowager Empress was still alive and recognized as head of the family.

^^ I had read that somewhere .. Wasn't it rumored his mother was plotting to assassinate Nicholas II in an attempt to place her son on throne?  I heard there was a lot of bad blood between Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna & the Empress...
