I read this book after having done other research on the history of the family of Tsar Nicholas, the last of the Romanovs.

This book was very informative, and of course fun, Who doesn't like amazing jewels.

The text was itself very informing, and due to the fact that it was authored by a Greek cousin to the Romanovs, it was all the more intriguing to learn what he had to say about his family.
