    I love how Ridley Scott gave Alexander I a Russian accent in his shitty Napoleon film from last year, despite the fact that Alexander I was an ethnic German.

      Who grew up speaking French

        I was going to say. I wasn't quite sure if they were already doing it that early but thought that was indeed a factor as well.

        Post Peter the Great, basically the entire cadre of Russian nobility was imported German nobility. The House of Romanov died with Grand Duchess Anna Petrovna, Peter III's mother, because even his father was a German. And then Catherine the Great cosplayed as Russian, as did all of her descendants and successors. The name 'Romanov' was only upheld for establishing legitimacy when its true heirs had already all died off.

        Alexander I and his younger brother Nicholas I were 7/8ths German, and then Nicholas' son Alexander II was 15/16ths German, and then his son, Alexander III, was 31/32nds German!

          And even then, Nicholas II's mother was a half-German half Danish (with more German on that side) woman, so he too was virtually completely German ethnically and ancestrally speaking. It is a wonder why they kept speaking French as their prestige language though after the enormous status and prestige hit France took following the Franco-Prussian War.

            The power of tradition. Formally, the French language could have been abandoned even during the Great French Revolution (the godless French killed their rightful king), especially after the War of 1812, but the St. Petersburg court continued to cling to the French language as le Roi Soleil still lives. Monarchy clings to tradition and is an irrational thing.

            What does the US's invasion and conquest attempt at Britain's Canada colonies have to do with this...?

            The Americans tried to tear Canada away while the British were at war with France (fail). For Americans, the "War of 1812" is their conflict with the British.
            Of course, I was referring to Napolon's 1812 invasion of Russia.
            The defeat of Napoleon led to the growth of national-patriotic sentiments in the Russian elite and increased interest in the “folk” theme (+ the influence of German romanticism). But not so much that the Court stopped speaking French.

            Look at his face; that's a quintessential inbred German face, so severe mental illness is 100% guaranteed.
            He was also gay for Napoleon and realized he couldn't live without the Frenchman so he faked his death to live as a hermit coping with his mistake.

            Not much, he single handedly defeated the Corsican gay and liberated the entirety of Europe. Easily Russia's greatest Tsar. His only problem was that he didn't get into the panties of his German wife nearly enough and therefore had no legitimate offspring. Instead he chose to commit adultery with some Polish mistress.

            Go back to fingering yourselves, inbred monarcucks.

        He most certainly would not have had anything even closely resembling a Russian accent, anon. Like

        >despite the fact that Alexander I was an ethnic German.

        pointed out, French was the foremost prestige language then still, and Alexander I would have spoken French just as finely as Napoleon, meaning that in the film he should have been portrayed as having a posh English one.

          Yes, that is indeed the point. That first anon (idk if it was you) specifically mentioned his German ancestry implying a German accent would’ve been present. I was poking fun.

            I didn't mean to imply a German accent, but rather just that he wouldn't have had such a blatantly Russian one. One of many gross inaccuracies with the film.

      I watched the trailer where Bonaparte speaks English. That's enough, I don't want to look any further.

      it's incredible how people on this board fall for exactly the propaganda great powers were tryng to push during the time
      no that's what the Tsar wanted people to believe, but that's hardly the truth, Napoleon was finally defeated only when all of the allies joined in joint operations
