Romanovs

description:

A collective biography of the Romanov dynasty from 1613 to 1917.

unique features:

Photos, paintings and engravings of monarchs prior to Alexander II; political cartoons; photos & artwork of palaces, ceremonies, and the landscape.

similar to:

Last Tsar

in my opinion:

A good historical overview of the Romanov dynasty as a whole – NOT focused on Nicholas II.
