A remarkable series of letters from one of the surviving Romanovs have been unearthed which reveal her 'hate' towards the Allies in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution.<br />
<br />
The Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna - the younger sister of Tsar Nicholas II - penned more than 50 letters to her sister Xenia between 1916 and 1920 which provide a fascinating insight into the perilous existence of the Romanovs, the last Russian royal family.<br />
<br />
The letters were written mostly in English to get past the censors since the Romanovs lived in constant fear of assassination by Bolshevik forces.
