The photographs began to spread on social networks, after a famous Brazilian digital colorist posted them on her Twitter account
To commemorate the centenary of the execution of the members of the last royal family of Russia, the RT chain, in collaboration with the Russian State Archives, launched in 2018 the project # Romanovs100, which featured the Romanov history in 4,000 photographs.
Two years after the launch of that large-scale photographic puzzle, which won several international awards, some of the images, which were part of the project, have unexpectedly gone viral in recent days.
It's about the photos that show the tsarNicholas II swimming naked during a trip to Finland in 1912. Thousands of Twitter users have shared these images, quite explicit for that time.
The photos began to spread on social media after the famous Brazilian digital colorist, Marina Amaral, posted them on her Twitter account on Thursday. The artist's tweet now has more than 16,000 likes.
