Portraits of illegitimate children of Russian emperors

The moron, the redhead, the consumptive, the "daughter" of Lermontov's second, and the trinity with the gloss of Makovsky's brush. The descendants of the ruling dynasty, born of favorites, - what secrets are hidden from their images? We are looking at the "fruits of love" of the Romanov family. In the Russian kingdom, in contrast to medieval Europe and morality, at least in the annals, it was strictly: there are no references to extramarital affairs and the children of monarchs (the exception is Ivan the Terrible). The situation changed after Peter the Great turned Russia into a Russian empire. The yard began to focus on France, including gallant adventures. However, the appearance of bastards at first did not affect it. In the first half of the XVIII century, the Romanov dynasty had a deficit of legitimate heirs, not that of illegitimate children. With the accession of Catherine the Great in 1762, stability ensued in the country - it affected the growth of the birth rate of extramarital offspring. And, of course, the appearance of works of art dedicated to them. Son of Catherine II Alexei Grigorievich Bobrinsky was the son of the empress Catherine Alekseevna (without an ordinal number) and her favorite Grigory Orlov. He came into the world under stressful conditions: Catherine was pregnant when Empress Elizabeth Petrovna died in December 1761 and her lawful husband Peter III ascended the throne. Relations between the spouses were already very tense by that time, they did not communicate much, and the emperor did not even know about the interesting position of Catherine. When the time of birth came in April, a faithful valet Shkurin set fire to his house to distract Peter, who adored looking at the fire. Hardly having recovered (has passed hardly more than two months), Ekaterina has headed coup, and has spent the night without leaving the horse. Alexei grew up quite unlike his passionary, intelligent parents, education was bad, he was boozing, made debts and, on the orders of an angry mother, her whole reign lived in the Baltics, away from the court. On the portrait of the Rokotov brush, a boy with a silver rattle in his hands is depicted at the age of about a year. When the picture was taken to the Russian Museum, it was believed that this was a portrait of his half-brother, Emperor Paul. The elusive resemblance to the features of the mother, and also the fact that the picture came from her private quarters seemed to confirm this version. However, specialists in the work of Rokotov saw that, judging by the style, the picture was created in the middle of the 1760s, when Pavel was already ten years old. Comparison with other portraits of Bobrinsky proved that it is he who is depicted. The daughter of Catherine II Elizaveta Grigorevna Temkina was the daughter of Empress Gregory Potemkin's favorite - this is evidenced by her artificial shortened name (such as Russian aristocrats gave to illegitimate children), and the patronymic and the words of her son. Who exactly was her mother, unlike Bobrinsky, is a mystery. Catherine II never paid attention to her, nevertheless the version about her motherhood is widespread. The son of Temkina, directly indicating that she is Potemkin by her father, writes evasively that Elizaveta Grigoryevna "on the part of the mother is also of highly descent". John Vassos If the empress is really her mother, she gave birth to the child at the age of 45, during the celebration of the Kyuchuk-Kainarji world, when, according to the official version, Catherine suffered from a stomach disorder due to unwashed fruit. The education of the girl was handled by Potemkin's nephew Count Alexander Samoilov. When she grew up, she was given a huge dowry and married to Ivan Kalaguordi, a schoolmate of one of the great princes. Tenkina gave birth to ten children and, apparently, was happy. One of her daughters married the son of the sculptor Martos - is it really possible that the author of "Minin and Pozharsky" was related to the Romanovs? Illustration for Oscar Wilde's 'Salome'

... da plataforma "Ontem" para a estação dos sonhos perdidos ...




No mundo imprudente do meu estúpido sonho,
Onde fantasmas em chinelos vagam
em azulejos,
Onde os deuses e heróis, demônios e monstros em abundância,
Perdidos nos mares distantes é uma ilha de bondade.
Não o busquei ...
Eu costumava pendurar as nuvens
Em uma sociedade despretensiosa de visões maníacas ...

... As sombras de olhos amarelos se detinham nas estradas crucificadas
E o pôr-do-sol refletiu nos olhos do duende frio.
Golpeado as juntas dos séculos da roda do tempo.
Dos ventos e da areia no céu foram construídas mansões,
Nas masmorras eles forjaram a armadura e as armas dos gnomos,
Os feiticeiros amaldiçoaram o destino e contaram os corvos,
Do qual no mundo de Raznozemya não se tornou vida,
E quem franziu a testa para o bem da mudança ...

... Mas apitos, lágrimas o bule na cozinha, me devolvendo instantaneamente ao cotidiano de ser.
Chá forte, mas, infelizmente, o calor eo conforto são ilusórios.
Na mira dos espelhos parece-me inútil e velho.
Longe do universo paralelo soa Procol Harum, a porta abre no passado por alguns minutos ...
Você se lembra, cantou, entrando em um guincho, cobre orquestral, revelando a coragem bêbada do tango argentino?
Meu anjo pelado, atado, orelhudo e puro sangue espalha asas de lã
esperando voar, mas o tempo não está voando ...
Compartilhamos um aconchego para dois, e a melodia da tristeza sombria está perto de mim hoje.
Nosso pecado pagão não está em adoração cega de uma pedra, mas em uma veneração muda de uma pedra
acima de outras pedras igualmente antigas ...

E novamente eu estou sozinho na cozinha.
Do lado de fora da janela, os corvos tentam me perseguir com infortúnio ...

... E as esculturas dos heróis adornaram o jardim de Perséfone,
Como uma triste conseqüência de milhares e milhares de razões,
De quem as origens há muito se perderam no pó interestelar ...
Os mundos balançaram e acidentalmente entraram em contato.

Nos arredores dos sonhos, na semelhança universal das ruas
Os deuses condenados entraram no esquecimento em silêncio,
Perdidos na incredulidade, eles caíram no abismo dos séculos,
Transformado em vagabundos imortais, marginalizados sem nome,
Tendo trocado a profundidade dos sentimentos sobrenaturais por outro
Compreensão da eternidade ...

Então perdemos os deuses ...

... O vento morreu por um curto período de tempo, a exibição do relógio eletrônico foi reiniciada.

Meu anjo geme e preocupa, isto é, é hora de nós ...

A esta hora, neste momento o trem sai -

da plataforma "Ontem" para a estação dos sonhos perdidos ...

Mémoire éternelle, Mikhaïl Nikolaïevitch Zadornov! Merci de rester avec nous!

Avec la mort de Mikhaïl Zadornov, toute une ère de bon humour classique est partie. Pour toute la vie créatrice de Zadornov, aucun des collègues du satiriste n'a pu gagner un tel amour populaire. C'est Mikhaïl Nikolaïevitch qui fut le seul artiste de l'histoire de l'URSS et de la Russie à féliciter tout le pays de la nouvelle année 1992 au lieu des présidents de l'époque.

Il est impossible de croire que l'optimiste, qui reste pour toujours un écrivain dans notre mémoire, ne réapparaîtra jamais sur la scène et ne donnera pas sa couronne: "Tous, tranquillement, arrêtez de rire ... et maintenant ils ont pris l'air ... et ils sont stupides ... ".

Il y a un an, Mikhaïl Zadornov a admis honnêtement à son auditoire qu'il avait de sérieux problèmes de santé. Pour cette raison, l'écrivain a arrêté son projet de télévision, a cessé de tourner. Quelques mois plus tard, il est devenu connu que Mikhaïl Zadornov avait un cancer du cerveau.

 
Cependant, nous tous les fans et les amis de l'artiste étaient confiants dans l'issue favorable du traitement. Malheureusement, ni la chimiothérapie ni les méthodes modernes de traitement n'ont abouti à un résultat positif.
