All the members of the Romanov family were animal lovers, and each imperial child had pets: dogs, cats, horses, and even a pet elephant. The children even had a little pet cemetery where they buried their beloved animals, which was located on the Children’s Island in the Alexander Park. They visited it often and brought fresh flowers…

One thought on “ROMANOV FAMILY PETS

  1. How far back in the family does the liking for pet dogs and cats go? What about Tzar Nicholas’s father and grandfather?. Who had the first Siamese Cats in Russia ? The French had people potty about cats throughout the 1700s, were therre any in Russia during that century . king Chulalongkorn of Thailand allegedly gave the Tzar of his time 200 Siamese Cats, is there any Russian record of that alledged event?
