Simon Sebag Montefiori
The Romanovs were the most successful dynasty of modern times, ruling from 1613 to 1918 a sixth of the world's surface, an empire that still defines Russia today. The international bestselling historian, Simon Sebag Montefiore, tells their intimate story.
Touched by genius, some by madness, but all inspired by imperial ambition, the Tsars and Tsarinas in Montefiore’s gripping chronicle inhabit a secret world overshadowed by conspiracy, rivalry, sexual decadence and wild extravagance. The cast numbers adventurers, courtesans, revolutionaries and poets not to mention giants of history from Ivan the Terrible to Tolstoy and from Queen Victoria to Lenin.
In this centenary year of the Russian Revolution Sebag Montefiore’s new book, The Romanovs, culminates with the rise and murder of Rasputin, the First World War and the revolution before the curtain comes crashing down with the harrowing massacre of Nicholas and Alexandra and their family.
