Special Interest Morning
Tyrants and Martyrs of Imperial Russia:
A History of the Romanov Dynasty from Catherine the Great to Nicholas II

Douglas Skeggs
10/11/2017

 The Menuhin Hall
Stoke d’Abernon, Cobham KT11 3QQ

Catherine had no right to rule Russia.  She was a minor German princess who had been brought to court to marry a dull-witted heir to the Romanov dynasty.  But within years she had deposed her husband and set herself up as Empress of Russia, establishing a regime that would dominate Russia for almost two centuries.

These talks look into her turbulent reign and those of the generations that followed, from her paranoid son, Paul, through the lavish courts of Nicholas I and Alexander III to the poignant figure of Nicholas II whose assassination brought the Romanov dynasty to a tragic end.
