5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous!, 24 July 2006
This review is from: The Court of the Last Tsar: Pomp, Power and Pageantry in the Reign of Nicholas II (Hardcover)
A truly fabulous book that takes you step by step through the Palace corridors and lets you meet the people behind the names. For anyone interested in Russian history, or fascinated by the tragedy that was Nicholas and Alexandra, this book is a must have, must read, must keep.

This review is from: The Court of the Last Tsar: Pomp, Power and Pageantry in the Reign of Nicholas II (Hardcover)
Having read many books on Nicolas and Alexandra, biographies and auto-biographies of many members on or by members of the Imperial Family I thought I had a already a pretty clear picture of the Imperial House and the life style of its very members.

But there was so much more to learn about it as this excellent proved. For the first time one books brings all these little bits and pieces together which one catches while reading other books on the Romanovs at the turn of the last century. So instead of a fragmentised one suddenly gets in one go the full picture. Georgy Greg covers not only the Imperial Family and their personalities but the whole set up of the court, the structure of it. He covers more or less as aspect of Imperial life. So he puts Nicolas II and his family into "their setting".

So by this one learns even more about Nicolas and Alexandra herself, but as well about other members of the Romanov clan. Mr. King is pretty clear about things, does not cover up and paints the picture of the "saintly Czar".

All in all, a book I immensely enjoyed and can highly recommend.
