A sat­is­fy­ing de­tail

BBC History Magazine - - Letters -

Af­ter read­ing many is­sues of BBC His­tory Mag­a­zine, I was happy to see the ar­ti­cle by Dr He­len Rap­pa­port about the last days of the Ro­manovs ( The Ro­manov Mur­ders, Au­gust). In the ar­ti­cle, the ti­tle of the tsar’s wife is spelled cor­rectly as tsar­itsa. For some rea­son un­known to me, this ti­tle is usu­ally seen spelled as tsa­rina, which is not how it is pro­nounced or spelled in the Rus­sian lan­guage. See­ing this was a lit­tle sat­is­fy­ing de­tail for me per­son­ally, in the over­all bril­liant and in­for­ma­tive ar­ti­cle. Thank you! Olga El­bourn, Cam­bridge
