Throughout their childhood the Tsarevich Nicholas (II) admired his brother Grand Duke George's sparkling humor and when George cracked a joke, the Tsarevich carefully wrote it down on a slip of paper and filed it away in a box. Years later, as Tsar, when Nicholas II was heard laughing alone in his study, he would be found reading his collection of George's jokes.  laugh laugh

The uncles of Nicholas II had a powerful influence. They decided that Nicholas should marry publicly in St. Petersburg, not privately at Livadia. At the coronation, the uncles insisted that Nicholas go on to the French ambassador's ball after the disaster at Khodynka Meadow.
