This is an English translation of “The Private Life of the Romanoffs”, originally published in German and written by Bernhard Stern. Within this volume, Stern explores the idea of the Romanoffs as tyrants, focusing on the various influences upon the rulers by their 'mistresses and favourites'. A fascinating insight into the lives and loves of the Romanoffs, this volume is not to be missed by those with an interest in Russian history and the events that led to the revolution of 1917. Contents include: “Manners, Customs and Domestic Life Under the First Romanoffs”, “Marriage and Amours of Peter the great”, “Catherine the First and Her Lovers”, “The Marriage of the Love Affair of the Tzarevitch Alexis”, “The Children of Peter the Great and Catherine the First”, “The Brides of Peter II”, “Empress Anna and Biron”, “the Empress Elizabeth and Her Lovers”, “Marriage and Amours of Peter the Foolish”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
