As Emperor Paul I stated in his declaration of April 5, 1797, the day of his coronation, the Orthodox faith is "inseparable" from the Russian throne "because the sovereign in Russia is the Head of the Church."

When did Princess Victoria Melita convert to the Russian Orthodox Church? Was it before or after her marriage to Grand Duke Cyril?

Victoria sometimes travelled to Russia to see her sisters but much of the time the family reunited in Hesse, in the old family home which Ernie their brother owned. When Ella became a nun her entire focus was on setting up her convent and then helping her patients and the poor. I don't think Ella did very much travelling after that.

A century after the Tsar and his family were murdered and Lenin seized power, how the Daily Mail might have recorded this event if it happened today - including a profile of the 'sex-crazed monk who destroyed a dynasty'

    Vladimir Lenin ordered execution of Tsar of Russia, Nicholas II and family
    Drunk guards form a firing squad in the basement of the family's house
    Four daughters including Anastasia and son finished off with bayonets
