What is The Romanoffs about?
This brand new series is by Mad Men creator Mathew Weiner.
The Romanoffs is a contemporary series set around the globe, centring on separate stories about people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family.
It is based on the legacy of the Romanov family – who were the last dynasty to rule Russia from 1613 until the Bolsheviks seized power in 1917.
In July of 1918, Tsar Nicholas II, Tsarina Alexandra, and their five children and remaining loyal servants were executed, a slaughter that has, over the years, inspired conspiracy theories, including the myth that Nicholas and Alexandra's daughter Anastasia survived the attack.
Weiner's unconventional spelling of the Russian surname reportedly reflects both the pronunciation and how it was spelt up until recently.
