Sovereign No. 7 Coming Soon!


The No. 7 issue of Sovereign: The Life and Reign of Emperor Nicholas II is now at the printers. The first copies will be made available at the International Nicholas II Conference on 27th October, in Colchester, England. It will be available for purchase, from the Royal Russia Bookshop, along with the No. 14 issue of Royal Russia: A Celebration of the Romanov Dynasty and Imperial Russia in Words and Photographs at the end of October.

This is a very special issue, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the death and martyrdom of Russia’s last emperor and tsar. It features 143 pages, 7 articles, and richly illustrated with more than 150 photographs.

This issue includes a summary of my trip to Ekaterinburg for the Tsar’s Days events in July 2018, and includes 50 of my own photographs of the Divine Liturgy held on the night of 16/17 July, Ganina Yama, Porosenkov Log, exhibitions, churches, and much more!
