The stairs in the Governor’s Mansion in Tobolsk. Alexei was so bored by being confined that he tobogganed down them one day, only to be struck down with his worst hemophilia attack since Spala in 1912. He never walked again. The photograph of Alexei within the larger photograph was taken during his last illness, but was not the last photograph ever taken of him.

Anna Stepanovna Demidova (1878 - July 17, 1918) was a maid in the service of Tsarina Alexandra of Russia. She acquired posthumous fame because she was murdered alongside her employer in 1918. She shared the Romanov family's exile at Tobolsk and Ekaterinburg following the Russian Revolution of 1917 and was murdered with them on July 17, 1918. Like them, she was canonized as a martyr by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia in 1991 as a victim of Soviet oppression.
