Robert Massie noticed the Romanovs when he was researching for his son’s disease. Robert Massie, Jr. has just been diagnosed with hemophilia when he was a child and Robert and his then wife Suzanne wanted to find out how other families cope with having someone in the family ill with the genetic disease. The most famous hemophiliac child was last Tsar of Russia’s only son and would-have-been heir to the throne, Tsarevich Alexei.

As he read more and more about Tsarevich Alexei Romanov and his unfortunate bouts with hemophilia, the more than he find out and got fascinated, with the Romanovs. In his reading of personal accounts by people who had been close to the family, he found out that the Romanovs were in fact a loving, close-knit family.
