TSAR NICHOLAS II: DIARY OF THE ABDICATION

Tsar Nicholas II with his generals

FEBRUARY 1917

 27th February. Monday. Disorders started several days ago in Petrograd; unfortunately, even the troops have begun to take part in them. It is a sickening feeling to be so far away and to receive fragments of bad news. Did not spend much time listening to reports. During the day took a walk along the highway towards Orsha.

The archive has the typed version of the diary, with Kschessinska’s inscription, which says “In the end I also flew out of the sleigh into snow and… got banged up. If it weren’t for this misfortune, I would have soon become a mother. Only later, when I was older, did I realize what I lost then. They later said that I had children from the Heir, but this was not true. I often regretted that I did not have any”.
