a note about dates
Important days in Russian history are often written with two different dates. That is because during the time of the Romanovs, the calendar was written in the Julian year, rather than the Gregorian style, which came about later. Most dates have been modified to reflect the new style that we all use today, and I'll continue to use this - but just know that the Romanovs often operated 12 days behind!
