First published in 1921, this book contains the memoirs of Pierre Gilliard. Pierre Gilliard (1879 – 1962) was a Swiss author and academic famous for being the French language tutor of Russian Emperor Nicholas II's children between 1905 and 1918. Within these pages, Gilliard describes Tsarina Alexandra's sadness relating to her son's haemophilia and her belief in Grigori Rasputin's ability to help the boy. This volume constitutes a must-read for those with an interest in Russian history, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “My First Lessons at the Court (Autumn, 1905)”, “Alexis Nicolaievitch—Visits to the Crimea”, “I Begin my Duties as Tutor—The Czarevitch's Illness”, “The Czarina, Alexandra Feodorovna”, “Rasputin”, “Life at the Tsarskoie-Selo—My Pupils (The Winter of 1913-14)”, “Journeys to the Crimea and Rumania”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
