The Romanovs

 Well, it's been another whole month without a post! Time does just slip away. Also, I might be more motivated if I made more money from this blog. Remember, if you have ad blockers, disabling on this site gives me revenue from the ads (no need to actually click on ads). Anyways, as evidenced from all the views on any post I do on the Russian Imperial Family, here are some pics of your favorite royals:
