內容簡介

俄國史上最強盛的羅曼諾夫王朝,橫跨了3個世紀,統治世界1/6的面積。這個歷經了20個男女沙皇的家族,如何從一個飽經戰爭蹂躪的公國,成為史上最偉大的帝國?

「引人入勝…,羅曼諾夫王朝的故事已有無數人說過,但是從來沒有像這本書一樣:文學意味濃厚、敘事強烈、嚴謹的研究又關照人心。本書涵蓋羅曼諾夫的一切,從戰爭與外交,到機構的建立與宮廷的陰謀,生動地描繪了20個俄羅斯統治者的畫像。」 - Douglas Smith《文學評論》

羅曼諾夫的沙皇們權力無邊,但又一直籠罩在宮廷密謀、家族敵對、荒誕淫亂與揮霍無度的陰影下。統治者身負帝國神聖的任務,卻又飽受王位不保的威脅,最後12個沙皇有一半被謀殺而亡。

彼得大帝建立帝國的同時卻將兒子折磨至死,他的宮廷衣香鬢影,卻也充斥著醉鬼與裸身的侏儒。凱薩琳女皇拋棄了丈夫,和一群年輕男子搞不倫,但也征服了烏克蘭、讓歐洲驚艷不已。保羅一世被兒子亞歷山大一世所支持的朝臣們勒斃,拿破崙侵略亞歷山大一世統治的俄羅斯並焚燒莫斯科,他回頭進攻法國拿下了巴黎。亞歷山大二世解放了農奴,逃過5次暗殺,寫出世上所有統治者都比不上的最露骨情書。這個王朝最戲劇化的高峰是篤信神秘主義的尼古拉二世與亞歷山卓王妃,以及他們寵信的巫醫拉斯普丁崛起與被謀殺的故事。

本書利用新的檔案資料,生動描繪了這些偉大又帶有缺陷的男女君主、他們的家族與宮廷,為讀者帶來關於勝利與悲劇、愛情與謀殺的迷人史詩。透過本書深入的羅曼諾夫王朝研究,更能理解當今的俄羅斯現況。

The Romanovs were the most successful dynasty of modern times, ruling a sixth of the world’s surface for three centuries. How did one family turn a war-ruined principality into the world’s greatest empire? And how did they lose it all?
 
This is the intimate story of twenty tsars and tsarinas, some touched by genius, some by madness, but all inspired by holy autocracy and imperial ambition. Simon Sebag Montefiore’s gripping chronicle reveals their secret world of unlimited power and ruthless empire-building, overshadowed by palace conspiracy, family rivalries, sexual decadence and wild extravagance, with a global cast of adventurers, courtesans, revolutionaries and poets, from Ivan the Terrible to Tolstoy and Pushkin, to Bismarck, Lincoln, Queen Victoria and Lenin.

To rule Russia was both imperial-sacred mission and poisoned chalice: six of the last twelve tsars were murdered. Peter the Great tortured his own son to death while making Russia an empire, and dominated his court with a dining club notable for compulsory drunkenness, naked dwarfs and fancy dress.

Catherine the Great overthrew her own husband (who was murdered soon afterward), enjoyed affairs with a series of young male favorites, conquered Ukraine and fascinated Europe. Paul I was strangled by courtiers backed by his own son, Alexander I, who in turn faced Napoleon’s invasion and the burning of Moscow, then went on to take Paris. Alexander II liberated the serfs, survived five assassination attempts and wrote perhaps the most explicit love letters ever composed by a ruler. The Romanovs climaxes with a fresh, unforgettable portrayal of Nicholas II and Alexandra, the rise and murder of Rasputin, war and revolution—and the harrowing massacre of the entire family.

Dazzlingly entertaining and beautifully written from start to finish, The Romanovs brings these monarchs—male and female, great and flawed, their families and courts—blazingly to life. Drawing on new archival research, Montefiore delivers an enthralling epic of triumph and tragedy, love and murder, encompassing the seminal years 1812, 1914 and 1917, that is both a universal study of power and a portrait of empire that helps define Russia today.
