A Memorial for Nicholas II in Tsarskoye Selo

The fabulous Royal Russia blog I’ve written about before has a fabulous post about a memorial to Tsar Nicholas II, the last tsar of Russia, at Alexandrovskaya Station in Tsarskoye Selo. This station is where the Romanov family was put on a train and sent to their eventual deaths in Yekaterinburg.

The memorial on the left says “Emperor Nicholas II. A grateful Russia.” The one on the right says, “Forgive me, my sovereign.”
