Our Newest Book: The Romanovs – An Imperial Tragedy (Royal Collections, Volume II)

Every new book that Eurohistory publishes brings us an exciting adventure. However, our latest publication is surpassing all expectations!

The Romanovs – An Imperial Tragedy (Royal Collections, Volume II) was authored by Coryne Hall and Arturo E. Beéche.

Here at Eurohistory we house an incredible collection of photographs. These include over 400,00 images documenting European royalty from about 1850 to the present. New photographs are added to the Eurohistory Royal Archive every week. Needless to say, we have a well of treasures.

Of particular interest are the photographs we have about the Romanov Dynasty, rules of Russia from 1613-1917. This section within the archive has been enlarged by donations made to it by many descendants of the Romanovs, as well as by the purchase of entire archives, among them those of: Marie Alexandrovna, Helen Vladimirovna, Andrei Alexandrovich, Xenia Alexandrovna, Olga Alexandrovna, Olga Konstantinovna, Konstantin Konstantinovich, Vsevelod Ioannovich, and Gabriel Konstantinovich.

It is this phenomenal collection of images that forms the foundation from which our latest book grew. The authors have painstakingly looked through thousands of rare images. They chose countless images that had not been published before, as well as some better-known ones. This was done in an effort to put together a project like no other. The Romanovs – An Imperial Tragedy (Royal Collections, Volume II) is a unique work of pictorial biography. It brings to life not just the main line Romanovs, but also all the other, lesser-known branches of the family.

In nearly 300 pages are displayed 617 photographs of all the Romanovs from Tsar Nicholas I to the outbreak of the February Revolution. This photographic journey, accompanied by very interesting stories, provides the reader with what will be the most comprehensive book ever published on the Russian Imperial Family.

The Romanovs – An Imperial Tragedy (Royal Collections, Volume II) was sent to print over the weekend and we expect to have it ready for selling by the end of February 2017, just in time for the remembrance of the centennial of the fall of Tsar Nicholas II.
