Any treatment of Nicholas and Alexandra much less the Romanov family aside from print needs to be a mini series. Something like what has been done with the Tudors or other BRF.
Simon Sebag Montefiore produced an excellent book on history of Romanovs covering beginning and end of dynasty.
We don't need to go back to 1613, but starting sometime around 1878 with death of Princess Alice of the United Kingdom and effects it had upon young Princess Alix.
Queen Victoria, Alexander III of Russia, Maria Feodorovna, and many others in royal families across Europe saw the match of Nicholas and Alexandra as a huge mistake. Alexander III flatly told his son and heir to look elsewhere as Princess Alix simply would not do. Nicholas told his parents if he couldn't marry Alix at once, he would wait until becoming tsar and marry her then. As it turned out that event happened far sooner than anyone expected.
Not since Princess Maria Antonia of Austria was shipped off to France to become consort of the Dauphin of France has there been such an unsuited choice
Princess Alix was a mere child when her mother died. That trauma was bad enough, but her grandmother Queen Victoria stepped in to over see the child's upbringing.
When Alix wasn't in England at her grandmother's court, a flurry of communications from England to Hesse-Darmstadt carried Queen Victoria's instructions. Result was Alix grew into a young woman who was an English lady fortified with strong dose of Prussian values. Unfortunately the Imperial Court at St. Petersburg had no use for "ladies" English or otherwise.
Alix was painfully shy, something many Russians and others who didn't know the woman took to her being aloof and cold.
Alix would glance down receiving lines to count number of persons, totally anxious to get things over with and retreat back to her apartments. Romanov and high born Russian women were like "who the fuck does this German princess think she is?".
Like many English ladies Alix was a bit of a prude. Goings on at high living Court of St. Petersburg scandalized Alix as newly arrived princess engaged to the heir.
At a ball given in honor of Nicholas and Alix's pending marriage the latter was shocked at amount of cleavage exposed by Russian ladies whose gowns had rather low decolletage. Upon spying one particular grievous example Princess Alix dispatched one of her ladies to convey this message:
"Her royal highness wishes me to inform you that at Hesse-Darmstadt we do not wear our gowns that way"
The Russian lady shot back "Tell her royal highness at St. Petersburg we do!". At which she yanked the bodice of her down down lower exposing yet more bosom and continued dancing.
End result was for this and other reasons Nicholas and Alexandra withdrew into their own little "English family" world. Even members of the close Romanov family complained they felt Alix was keeping them from seeing the Tsar.
When the family did travel it was usually just to another of their palaces where again Nicholas II, his wife and children largely kept to themselves.
This self imposed or whatever isolation was one reason things ended so badly for Nicholas II and his family. Alexandra wouldn't leave Tsarsko Selo with her children during the war for another distant (and perhaps safer) property. Of course then the children all came down with measles and Alix doubled down on them being moved.
