Dear Subscribers and Eurohistory Supporters,

It has been some time since I had the peace of mind necessary to refocus on Eurohistory work!

However, after overcoming several family crises that affected us beginning in May, I am now able to get to work on several book projects that are nearly finished, as well as on EUROHISTORY'S Summer 2017 Issue, which is about 6 weeks late. In fact, I also started piecing together our Fall 2017 Issue, Volume 20.3.

Honestly, I feel relieved to have been able to send to print the Summer 2017 Issue. I also am enjoying very much putting the Fall 2017 Issue together and look forward to sending it to print in the next couple of weeks!

The Romanovs – Eurohistory's latest book

This is an illustrated history of the Russian Imperial Family between 1845-1917. The book's selection of photographs, 621 images in total, handsomely spread over 296 pages, ends immediately after the fall of Tsar Nicholas II in 1917. 

Authored by the talented Coryne Hall with the collaboration of Arturo E. Beeche, Eurohistory's founder, this work is unique in that it chronicles all branches of the Romanov dynasty, including some of the female lines that did not settle abroad. Using several photographic collections previously owned by various Romanovs, the authors took special interest in providing the reader with an amazing pictorial history of the famed Russian Imperial Family. All branches of the family are covered: the descendants of Tsar Alexander II, the descendants of Grand Dukes Nicholas, Konstantin and Michael Nikolaievich, as well as the descendants of Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich and his niece Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaievna, Duchess of Leuchtenberg. Many of the images used by the authors have not been used in any of our prior books. 

The vignettes and text included in every chapter provide the reader with a keen and insightful microscope into the lost world of the Romanovs! With over 620 images!

Available on Amazon,.com and soon on – the book is also being sold by Hoogstraten English Bookstore (the Hague), Librairie Galignani (Paris) and MAJESTY Magazine (UK).

On sale now!
