Romanov DNA





Last night, to my 13 year old, “Do you have homework?” “Yes. Something about Nicholas someone.” “Could I have more specifics please?” “You know, in Russia.” “The Romanovs? The Bolshevik revolution? Lennon? Communism? Stalin?” “Yeah, that stuff.” 



And so we had a talk about how, ultimately, one man, doing what he thought was his duty, completely misunderstood the situation and changed global history.



Her take home points? Faberge Eggs and the possibility that she may be related to the Romanov family.
