The work aims to inspire the readers, by presenting the lives of the Royal Martyrs through a different prism, the prism of their spiritual grandeur and the purity of their noble souls. In the pages of the book, the eye of the reader’s mind will be apprised of the portraits of the Royal Martyrs’ psyche, depicted with the liveliest colours: the colours of their very own words from the personal writings of the family and of those who lived very close to them. Thus, the book consists a psychographic biography, which aims in presenting the deeper essence of the characters of the royal family in an inspiring way.
Furthermore, the work brings to light a multitude of unknown and unrevealed facts, aspects and elements of history, which evince that many truths in regard to the life and martyrdom of the Royal Martyrs remain silenced or distorted to this day. The book presents unvarnished factually sourced events, deriving all its material stringently from primary sources, which allow no grounds for questioning their legitimacy, gravity and validity. Thus, many major historical events, such as the 1905 revolution and Bloody Sunday, Russia’s involvement in World War I, the February coup d’état of 1917 and the events relating to Nicholas’ II abdication, are set in their true proportions and are presented through a proper prospective. Readers may be surprised by the facts surrounding these historical events, because up to now these events have generally been presented in an inaccurate light. -- Introduction
