#Romanovs100 is an online educational narrative — a research into history through the visual language of photography combined with the digital reality of social media.
On July 17, 1918, the last Tsar of the Russian Empire, Nicholas Romanov, was executed with his wife and five children by the Bolsheviks. To commemorate the family, a comprehensive cross-platform storytelling project was launched, unveiling photographs from the unique collection preserved by the Russian State Archive. The Romanovs were pioneers of photography — in the early 20th century they owned the world's first portable Kodak cameras and captured almost every meaningful event in their lives. This is the story of the Empire's last royal family through thousands of their own photographs.
