In the Poisoned Crown Novel: |
Privet! I am Alexei Nikolayevich Kostromanov, nice to meet you. I am a Russian servant at the French Court as my Master is Count Saltykov, the Russian Muscovy Ambassador to France.
I am sixteen years old, and the oldest child and only son of Nikolai Nikolayevich Kostromanov, a Baker in the town of Kostroma and his wife Anastasia Alexeyevna, nee Rostova, a Seamstress. I have two younger sisters- Anna and Irina, whom are ten and seven years old.
I dont know French well enough but am learning day by day by listening to the French servants whom I work with as a gardener on the Royal grounds of Anna the Regent of France. Only one servant befriended me, an old man by the name Phillipe Saint-Claude, whom calls me "Alexis de Russie".
I'm torn between France and my home Russia, the food and customs are so strange here but I cant leave or i'll lost my pay for my family and the love of my life, the count's beautiful daughter Elena Vladimirovna. I must stay here to protect her from the French Court.
