It is always interesting and exciting to look at the outfits of the royals around the world and from various periods of time. So many museums display and value very high the garments of their royal families – like the UK where monarchy is still practiced today. But this time, we’d like to share with you a few photos of the royal clothing pieces from the Russian Empire. Do they differ from British royal garments of the same era? Do they have any specific features that make them unique among the outfits of other royals worldwide? Let’s see.
The Romanov family reigned in the Russian Empire in 1613-1917. Several generations of this family ruled one of the world's largest countries. But the garments, shoes, and accessories shown here belonged to 5 children of the last Russian tzar – four daughters and a son. Their fate was really horrible because the whole family was executed in 1917, including children. So now, there are only a few photos and some of their belongings left.
But the sad story aside, let’s look at their clothing pieces that are kept in the museums these days. The garments are beautiful and elegant and typical for the period (the late 19th – early 20th century).
