Emperor Nicholas II Fooling Around With His Friends

main32

These photos cannot be called rare but still they are very cool to look at. They were taken in 1899 at Wolfsgarten castle not far from Darmstadt. In the photos are the emperor Nicholas II, his spouse Alexandra Fedorovna and their friends – princess Ingeborg of Denmark, the Duchess of Darmstadt and prince Nicholas of Greece. As you may see nothing human was alien to the Russian aristocracy then. The images are more than a century old but the friendly and relaxed atmosphere featured in them is still felt very clearly.
