Strange sound to the song about the king, against the will of married to the unloved. But maybe this song is not about Nicholas, but of somebody else - of Alexander II, for example? For many years, he loved the princess Dolgorukaia and only a year before his death, was able to combine her morganatic marriage. But even at the palace balls emperor he was not free to dance with the one you love. They had three children who were brought up secretly in other people's families. To see them, the king had to go to incredible tricks and contrivances. But what he experienced when they were sick, and he could not even visit them! And this life, too, was the king's life. Only the death of those two granted the opportunity to briefly on short hours, to be together in public. When the king after the assassination attempt on him was dying, bleeding to death, she was with him.
