This is an updated version of William Clarke’s Lost Fortune of the Tsars with additional information added since first publication. It gives a detailed, comprehensive account of the immense wealth of the Imperial family before the revolution and what happened to the money, jewels, palaces, and other riches in the chaos that followed.

The result is a fascinating account of what belonged to the Tsar’s family and what belonged to the state.

From Coryne's list on Imperial Russia and the Romanovs.
