Our Newest Book: The Romanovs – An Imperial Tragedy (Royal Collections, Volume II)

Every new book that Eurohistory publishes brings us an exciting adventure. However, our latest publication is surpassing all expectations!

The Romanovs – An Imperial Tragedy (Royal Collections, Volume II) was authored by Coryne Hall and Arturo E. Beéche.

Here at Eurohistory we house an incredible collection of photographs. These include over 400,00 images documenting European royalty from about 1850 to the present. New photographs are added to the Eurohistory Royal Archive every week. Needless to say, we have a well of treasures.

Of particular interest are the photographs we have about the Romanov Dynasty, rules of Russia from 1613-1917. This section within the archive has been enlarged by donations made to it by many descendants of the Romanovs, as well as by the purchase of entire archives, among them those of: Marie Alexandrovna, Helen Vladimirovna, Andrei Alexandrovich, Xenia Alexandrovna, Olga Alexandrovna, Olga Konstantinovna, Konstantin Konstantinovich, Vsevelod Ioannovich, and Gabriel Konstantinovich.

It is this phenomenal collection of images that forms the foundation from which our latest book grew. The authors have painstakingly looked through thousands of rare images. They chose countless images that had not been published before, as well as some better-known ones. This was done in an effort to put together a project like no other. The Romanovs – An Imperial Tragedy (Royal Collections, Volume II) is a unique work of pictorial biography. It brings to life not just the main line Romanovs, but also all the other, lesser-known branches of the family.

In nearly 300 pages are displayed 617 photographs of all the Romanovs from Tsar Nicholas I to the outbreak of the February Revolution. This photographic journey, accompanied by very interesting stories, provides the reader with what will be the most comprehensive book ever published on the Russian Imperial Family.

The Romanovs – An Imperial Tragedy (Royal Collections, Volume II) was sent to print over the weekend and we expect to have it ready for selling by the end of February 2017, just in time for the remembrance of the centennial of the fall of Tsar Nicholas II.

Eurohistory's Newest Book… ALBANY – One Family, Two Destinies

It is with great pleasure that we announce to our readers the publication of our newest book, ALBANY – One Family, Two Destinies.



The inspiration for this book emanated from a conversation the authors had with HH Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, who had traveled to The Hague to be at the official presentation of his memoirs, I Did It My Way... The prince, whose biography he wrote with the assistance of Arturo E. Beéche, suggested that perhaps a book on all the descendants of the Duke of Albany, his great-grandfather, would be of interest to royalty enthusiasts and book collectors. 

The fateful meeting took place during the Third Royal Gatherings Conference, a yearly event hosted by Eurohistory and Hoogstraten English Bookstore, in November 2015. The previous year, Mr. Golden had authored a similar book on the descendants of the Duke of Connaught. In 2013, Mr. Beéche had authored The Coburgs of Europe, a book that Prince Andreas considers to be the "gold standard" on his family's history. Hence, to the prince it seemed like a logical suggestion that both authors would cooperate in the writing of the present volume. Both Mr. Golden and Mr. Beéche are deeply thankful to Prince Andreas for encouraging, not only the subject of this book, but also their joint effort. 



The authors hope that in years to come, they will be able to cooperate in further publications on various royal topics. 

The images used in this book come from the private collection of Mr. Robert Golden, as well as that of Mr. Arturo E. Beéche. A considerable number of images came from the vast Eurohistory Royal Photo Archive, founded by Mr. Arturo E. Beéche in 1997. Some images were kindly donated by several descendants of Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone. A few were donated by HH Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, whose considerable collection was curated by Mr. Arturo E. Beéche. The Swedish Royal Palace in Stockholm must be thanked as well for providing images of the current King and his family.

ALBANY – One Family, Two Destinies will begin selling on AMAZON (https://www.amazon.com/dp/1944207058on December 12 and we expect to start shipping copies immediately!

The book can also be purchased at our usual supporting venues: MAJESTY (which will have a full feature of the book in the January 2017 issue), Librairie Galignani in Paris, and, of course, Hoogstraten English Bookstore in The Hague (http://www.hoogstraten.nl)
