Biography of Alex Carlton

Alexander Nicholas Carlton Александр Николаевич Карлов (Aleksandr Nikolayevich Karlov) Alexander Nikolas Karjala 29th August 1917 Loviisa, Finland Loviisan peruskoulu, Loviisa, Finland Lassiters School, Dorset, England Граф Николай Александрович Карлов (Count Nikolay Aleksandrovich Karlov) Графиня Татьяна Иванова Карлова (Countess Tatiana Ivanova Karlova)
Aleksander Nikolayevich Karlov was born into Russian aristocracy towards the end of August 1917, the result of the parting union between Count Nikolai Aleksandrovich Karlov, and his wife Tatiana Ivanovna on the eve of his return to his regiment. It is known that Count Nikolai Aleksandrovich did not ever meet his son, although Aleksander Nikolayevich came to greatly admire the man that gave his life in a bid to rescue the Imperial family from the Bolsheviks. As a result of the strong anti-White sentiments in St. Petersburg, the heavily pregnant Tatiana Ivanovna was secretly expatriated in the last days of July 1917 by family members and friends who were concerned about her safety; they believed that mother and child would be better off and safer in Sweden. Should the Bolsheviks ever seize power, there would be little hope of prosperity for the widow of a loyal Tsarist and his child. This precautionary commitment was accepted by the Countess because Sweden was not so far away from the autonomous Grand Duchy of Finland, and it would be easy to return should the Bolshevik threat come to nothing.
