The Romanovs: 1613-1918 Free read Ç 6 E building overshadowed by palace conspiracy family rivalries sexual decadence and wild extravaganceDrawing on new archival research Montefiore delivers an enthralling epic of triumph and tragedy love and murder that is both a universal study of power and a portrait of empire that helps define Russia tod. This is a sensational and dramatic account of the family that ruled Russia for 300 years characterised by Simon Sebag Montefiore s lurid prose and blunt and often humorous commentary about a dysfunctional family successfully presiding over the expansion of an empire despite and possibly because of their eccentric use of absolute power in the form of the last autocracy in Europe Gargantuan sexual appetites dangerous toadyism some extraordinary good luck and the advantages of geography and population pockmark this endlessly entertaining account That is up until the serious sombre Nicholas II when the tone of the book and the fate of the Romanovs darkens to their extinction with the book s bleak conclusion in a cellar in Ekaterinberg Montefiore doesn t spare the Romonovs in either their sexual escapades or their policy bungles but what is uniue about this family is how closely the two were linked and from time to time he pops up with a story showing how influential this was on future generations and leaders of Russia Their impulses took the largest country on earth in various risky directions until their luck ran out and the most sober of them in this account anyway led them to destruction by being that impossible contradiction in terms the weak autocratSections on Peter the Great whose life proved that gory is clearly an anagram of orgy and on the death of Potemkin lived on gold died on grass stick out in my mind as well as the distressing details of the final days of the Romanovs Autocracy had outlived its usefulness by then and Nicholas crimes are plain to see but it is difficult not to be moved by the cruelty of their fate at the hands of the Bolsheviks
