In the 100 year anniversary of the death of the Imperial Royal Family, join Emma Albery in the Sandby Room for a talk about Tsar Nicholas II and his wife Tsarina Alexandra.
In the early hours of the morning of 17 July 1918, the Tsar, his wife Alexandra, and their children Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia, and Tsarevich Alexei were executed by the Bolsheviks in Ekaterinburg; one of the most shocking events of the 20th Century.
Relationship with the British Royal Family
This talk will explore the Romanovs relationship with the British Royal Family, particularly their cousins Marie Louise and Helena Victoria who resided at Cumberland Lodge and King George V. We shall hear how they were affected by the events leading up to the devastating massacre of the Russian Royal Family and subsequently the fall out from World War One.
