  The only "Treasures" hidden and rescued did not belong to a Romanov, but to to Nicholas II's mother - and only a small part of her jewels were "saved" by the English homosexual who entered her Petrograd villa to retrieve them. Only one piece is identified and named.

This title reveals for the first time the story of Albert Henry Stopford, Edwardian man-about-town, dealer in object d'arts and a regular guest at the Romanov dinner tables. In the terrible turmoil of the Russian Revolution, he risked his life rescuing Romanov jewels from the Vladimir Palace.   The documents, originally held by Soviet state security, the KGB, and unearthed by The Siberian Times, claim that 26 boxes of gold, from the era of the Romanovs, were placed two meters below ground, five kilometers from the Tayga railway station in Kemerovo, in Though the treasure was allegedly searched for in , nothing was ever found. Stopford is most famous for smuggling millions of pounds of Romanov jewels out of revolutionary Russia under the noses of the Bolsheviks. In fact, it was one such jewel, Grand Duchess Maria Pavlolovna’s Vladimir Tiara, now owned by HRH Queen Elizabeth, which led me to this book. In , the Grenadier offi cer is posted to Russia to locate and aid the escape of Romanovs. Attached to a Cossack regiment, a peasant girl rescues him from Red soldiers. Against a background of international intrigue and Imperial elegance the story winds through two of histories greatest mysteries, the murders of the Imperial family and Rasputin.
