Fascinating Facts About the Romanov Family

By Staff Writer

The Romanov Dynasty isn’t one that will be forgotten. This family ruled over Russia for centuries, and it wasn’t an easy task.

 Some of the rules were downright awful, and we’re sure the family would prefer they weren’t labeled under their house – if they were still around that is. While others? Well, some were such good rulers that it brought about one of the best ages Russia ever saw.

Today, we’re going to talk about some interesting facts that most people don’t know about the Romanov family. The interesting thing about this family is that they shaped Russia into what it is today (for better or worse). They brought traditions the country may not have had otherwise and expanded the country massively.

While most of these facts will focus on the final Romanov ruler Nicholas II, we couldn’t help but add in a couple of little tidbits here and there about his ancestors. After all, he wouldn’t have been a ruler without them. Although, his father is also a lot of why he was such a bad Emperor to begin with.

Wondering whatever happened to their missing daughter Anastasia? How did the family end up where they are today? How was the Romanov family related to English royalty? We’ll answer all these questions and more.
