Romanov Autumn

By Charlotte Zeepvat

The Romanov dynasty ruled Russia for a little over 300 years, and its dramatic end exerts a lasting fascination. This book explores the lives of individual Romanovs during the last century of imperial rule. It was a time of contrasts, during which the Tsars reached the peak of their wealth, prestige and power, yet faced the growth of forces that would lead to their destruction.

In 1817, a hundred years before the Revolution, the first Tsar Nicholas and Alexandra were married in the Winter Palace. Beginning there, the book continues with the stories of their successors, each trying to steer his own course between reform and repression. Stories of lesser known characters in the Russian royal family, and the ordinary people who crossed their paths, are also told, revealing details of their daily lives.

The author’s detailed knowledge of the imperial palaces as they were and as they are today gives the stories life. While her use of recently-revealed archive material casts new light on the Romanovs. Romanov Autumn will appeal to all those interested in the remarkable and tragic history of the Russian Imperial family.

Praise for Romanov Autumn:

‘… explores in fascinating detail how the Romanov family came under threat during the 19th century’ – Sunday Express
