Book Description

The Romanovs - the second and final dynasty to rule Russia - have captured the imagination of the world like no other royal family. The mysterious execution of Tsar Nicholas II and his immediate family in 1918 further fuelled this fascination. Yet the intrigue surrounding the family began centuries earlier with another notorious tsar - Ivan the Terrible. So-called due to his dramatic changed in temperament following the death of his wife, Ivan instigated one of the most terrifying periods in history as he and his Oprichniki viotently tortured his people. And he is only one of many Romanovs with a reputation... Tracing the ancestry back to the marriage of Anastasi Zakharyina and Ivan IV of Muscovy in 1547, through the demise of the House of Romanov, to the present generation, Oliver Thomson delves deep into the family's lineage. Including maps, portraits of family members and stunning colour photographs of the main surviving Romanov buildings, this absorbing book charts the rise and fall of one of the greatest families in history.
