The Russian jewelry House Fabergé was founded by Gustav Fabergé (1814-1893). His son, Peter Carl Fabergé (1846-1920) is the famous Russian jeweler who created the famous Fabergé Eggs (Easter eggs were made as gifts for the Tsars Alexander III and Nicholas II’s wives and mothers). He is considered as the jeweler of the Russian Tsars (Alexander III and Nicholas II. The Fabergé house closed in 1917, during the Russian revolution.
In 2007, the Fabergé House revived, 90 years after its disappearance in 1917. The name of Fabergé is redeemed under the blessing of Tatiana Fabergé (Great grand-daughter of Peter Carl Fabergé). The French jeweler Frédéric Zaavy is in charge of the creation. The brand innovates (watches, new designs…) but also perpetuates the art of Peter Carl Fabergé (Imperial collection, Easter eggs under different forms).
The Imperial Romanov family ruled Russia from 1613 to 1917. On the February 21th of 1613, Michael Romanov became Tsar of Russia (Tsar Michael I of Russia) and reigned until 1645. Nicholas II of Russia had been the last Tsar of Russia (1868-1917).
Tsar Nicholas II and Tsarina Alexandra had six children : Olga (1895-1918), Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia Nikolaevna and Alexei Nikolaevich.
The Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna is the Tsar Nicholas II’s second daughter. She was born on May 29 1897, in Peterhof.
Tatiana Nikolaevna looked like her mother. Tatiana was very devoted to his mother. And she was very closed to her older sister Olga; they were nicknamed “the big pair”.
During the World War I, Tatiana, Olga and Alexandra worked as Red Cross nurses. Tatiana fell in love with a patient named Dmitri Yakovlevich Malama.
During the Russian revolution, from 1905 to 1917, Tsar Nicholas II and his family lived in the Alexander Palace of Tsarkoïe-Selo from March 1917 to August 1917. In 1917, Tsar Nicholas II of Russia abdicated. Then, they were send to Tobolsk, in Siberia. In April 1918, the tsar Nicholas II and his family were transferred in Ekaterinburg. The Emperor Nicholas II and his family (wife and children) were murdered in the night of 16 July 1918 and 17 July 1918 by the Bolsheviks under the orders of Lenine. The murder took place in the Villa Ipatiev in Ekaterinburg.
