I created the Alexander Palace website in 1997 as a resource for people who wanted to learn more about the palace, the Romanovs and Russian history. In recent years amazing progress has been made in the restoration of the palace by the museum authorities in Tsarskoe Selo. Many books have been published on the subject and hundreds of websites have been created by people all over the world. This is a fantastic ending to a long story that started with me when I was an eight-year-old kid in Mountlake Terrace, Washington.
Therefore, as of March 2015 this site will no longer be updated.
The Alexander Palace European Royalty and Russian discussion forum is going full blast and I encourage those interested in these subjects to go there and participate.
