Romanov Family Photos Now in Color

Russian artist Olga Shirnina (also known as 'klimbim') has brought to life archive images of the Romanov family by applying color to them, reports Ksenia Isaeva of website 'Russia Beyond the Headlines.'

The last Russian Emperor of the Romanov dynasty, Nicholas II, is pictured with his wife Alexandra, daughters Maria, Olga, Tatiana and Anastasia, and son Alexei.

All of them were killed by the Bolsheviks on the night of July 16-17, 1918. Their servants, court physician Eugene Botkin, maid Anna Demidova, footman Aloise Trupp and cook Ivan Kharitonov also died alongside them in Yekaterinburg.
