He was Grand Duke Michael, handsome brother of Tsar Nicholas II. She was the beautiful twice-divorced daughter of a Moscow lawyer. Everything was wrong…yet for Michael, it was love at first sight—an obsession that would lead to disgrace, humiliation, and exile. Their scandalous love affair and their runaway marriage to Vienna in 1912, trailed by the Tsar’s secret police, caused uproar in Russia and was the talk in all of Europe. Based on hundreds of letters long hidden in the Russian state archive, as well as Michael’s private diaries held by the Forbes Collection, here is an extraordinary tale of enduring love and ultimate tragedy that, until now, has never been told. Michael and Natasha is both an astonishing love story and an illuminating look at the last glorious days of the Romanovs and the brutal revolution that ended their reign.

Summary

He was Grand Duke Michael, handsome brother of Tsar Nicholas II. She was the beautiful twice-divorced daughter of a Moscow lawyer. Everything was wrong…yet for Michael, it was love at first sight—an obsession that would lead to disgrace, humiliation, and exile. Their scandalous love affair and their runaway marriage to Vienna in 1912, trailed by the Tsar’s secret police, caused uproar in Russia and was the talk in all of Europe.

Based on hundreds of letters long hidden in the Russian state archive, as well as Michael’s private diaries held by the Forbes Collection, here is an extraordinary tale of enduring love and ultimate tragedy that, until now, has never been told. Michael and Natasha is both an astonishing love story and an illuminating look at the last glorious days of the Romanovs and the brutal revolution that ended their reign.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This thoroughly researched work contains enough intimate details to satisfy the romantic, enough hard facts to please the casual historian.” Publishers Weekly
“[A] compelling, well-researched account of an aspect of Russian history not widely known. Highly recommended.” Library Journal
“[A] genuinely moving story…Given this intimate and persuasive account of a decent, honest man, readers cannot help but wonder about the course of history if only Michael, and not Nicholas, had been tsar.” Kirkus Reviews
"Where domestic discord and scandalous extramarital adventures are concerned, Russia's Romanov dynasty could more than hold its own with England's House of Windsor." New York Times
