“Someone holds me safe and warm,
Horses prance through a silver storm.
Figures dancing gracefully,
Across my memory...” Thank you Sue and Bev for traipsing this around New York with you; I finally get to be a Russian princess :) xxx @syuord #anastasia #stephenflaherty #lynnahrens #lizcallaway #onceuponadecember #childhoodfilm #childhoodrelived #musicbox #russianroyalty #animatedmovie #animatedfilm #twentiethcenturyfox #filmfan #filmgeek #filmnerd #moviefan #moviegeek #movienerd #instagram #instadaily #instagay #gay #gayboy #gayteen #gaysnap #gayuk #gayisokay #gaypride #gayman #gaylove

The impressive Cameron Gallery at Tsarskoye Selo overlooking the lake and park. Conceived by Catherine II as a place for "strolls and philosophical conversations", it was designed by its namesake and her favourite architect, Charles Cameron, in 1787. Cameron, a contemporary of Robert Adam and a fellow Scotsman, is still relatively unknown outside Russia and so doesn’t have the wider acclaim he clearly deserves. I’ve also included an early 20th century postcard of the Gallery, and paintings by Luigi Premazzi (1859) and Ludwig Franz Karl Bohnstedt (1847). The second photo is courtesy of @pushkin.online .

Pt2️⃣...After the couple's only child, George, was born in 1910, Michael brought Natalia to St. Petersburg where she was shunned by society. After obtained a divorced from her second husband, Michael married Natalia in 1912.
Michael had hope that he would be removed from the line of succession. In case of Alexei’s death, Michael would have became heir presumptive and would never be able to marry Natalia. In a series of decrees, Nicholas relieved Michael of his command, banished him from Russia, froze all his assets in Russia, seized control of his estates and removed him from the Regency. Society in Russia was shocked at the severity of Nicholas's reprisal, but there was little sympathy for Natalia. She was not entitled to be known as Grand Duchess; she instead used the style "Madame or Countess Brasova". The coupe left Russia to live in exile abroad.
After the outbreak of World War I, Michael returned to Russia, assuming command of a cavalry regiment. When Nicholas abdicated in March, Michael was named as his successor instead of Alexei. Michael, however, deferred acceptance of the throne until ratification by an elected assembly. He was never confirmed as Emperor and, following the Russian Revolution of 1917, he was imprisoned, along with his secretary and friend, Johnson, who both were murdered by the Bolshevik in June 1918.
Michael was the first of the Romanovs to be executed by the Bolsheviks but he was not the last. Neither Michael's nor Johnson's remains have been found.
Michael's son George, Count Brasov, died in a car crash shortly before his 21st birthday in 1931 and was the last male-line descendant of Alexander III of Russia. Natalia died penniless in a Parisian charity hospital in 1952. His stepdaughter Natalia Mamontova married three times and wrote a book about her life entitled Stepdaughter to Imperial Russia, published in 1940.

December 4, 1878 – Birth of Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovich of Russia, son of Alexander III, Emperor of All Russia, at the Anichkov Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia
Michael was the youngest son and fifth child of Alexander III of Russia and Marie Feodorovna, (Princess Dagmar of Denmark); youngest brother of Nicholas II. After the death of his brother, George in 1899 and until the birth of Nicholas’s son, Alexei in 1904, Michael was the heir presumptive. He was raised in the company of his younger sister, Olga and both were closed to their father. Like most male members of his family, Michael was enrolled in the military. He completed training at a gunnery school and joined the Horse Guards Artillery.
Michael was perceived as unremarkable, quiet and good-natured. He performed the usual public duties expected of an heir to the throne. After the birth of the Tsarevich Alexei, Michael became second-in-line to the throne, but was named as co-regent for the boy, along with Alexandra, in the event of Nicholas's death.
In 1902, Michael met Princess Beatrice of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. They fell in love and began to correspond in her native English. At first it seemed they would marry; however, the Orthodox Church prohibited the marriage of first cousins, and Michael's father and Beatrice's mother were siblings. Nicholas refused to permit the marriage and, to Michael's and Beatrice's mutual dismay, their romance ended. After a romance with a lady-in-waiting to his sister Olga, there were rumors that his mother was trying to married to Princess Patricia of Connaught, but neither he nor Patricia knew anything about it. Nevertheless, two years later, in October 1908, Michael visited London, and he and Patricia were "paired" at social engagements but nothing came of it.
In early December 1907, Michael was introduced to Natalia Sergeyevna Wulfert, the wife of a fellow officer, and from 1908 they began a deep friendship. However by August 1909, they were lovers. Nicholas sent Michael to Orel to avoid scandal but this did not deter Michael, who travelled frequently to see his mistress. Continued ➡️➡️➡️
