"The Curse of the Romanovs" is a 1907 work that looks at the Romanov dynasty of Russian rulers, concentrating on the lives of Tsars Paul I and Alexander I (1754-1825). Written while the contemporary Tsar Nicholas II was clinging to power in the face of the inexorable 1917 revolution, it questions his right to the throne while exploring the events that had led up to the contemporary climate in Russia. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in Russian history and particularly the Russian Revolution of 1917. The House of Romanov was the second ruling Russian dynasty after the House of Rurik, reigning from 1613 until the Russian Revolution in 1917. The Romanov dynasty had 65 members at the start of 1917. By the end of it, 18 had been killed by the Bolsheviks while the remaining 47 had gone into exile abroad. Contents include: "From the Colosseum to the Kremlin", "The Birth of a Tyrant", "Motherhood and Ambition", "The Marriage of Hamlet", "Love in a Palace; Or, the Love Letters of a Princess", "The Journey of the Count and Countess Du Nord", "The Swedish Campaign", "The Hamlet of Gatshina", etc. Many vintage book such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive.
