    I think that this was one of Princess Radziwill s first books It isn t as gossipy or revealing as her later books She seems careful not to raze any hackles The book, never the less, has lots of little tidbits that make history of the Russian court understandable.

    Meh For the experience of a first person account of the Russian oligarchy written by a member of the aristocracy covering 19thC to 1914 this is somewhat amusant For a historical perspective, it reflects very much the bias of a reactionary who loathed reform and, somewhat ironically, Nicholas and Alexandra For a view into the reactionary oligarchy it has value Her accounts are all peppered injudiciously with her own opinion thus making Radziwill a most unreliable narrator Her portrayal of contemporary events was so skewed that I needed to regularly check her words against that of historians This is NOT for someone with no knowledge of Russian history as Radziwill s facts, especially about events relating to Nicholas and Alexandra are recitations of rumors from their detractors and inaccurate at best and cruelly misinformed so No spoilers They re all dead.
