The family tradition of education in the Imperial family
The earthly guardian of the girls became governess Elizabeth Kardel, which not only taught the basics Princess of knowledge, a passion to her book, but she had given the girl a lot of important moral lessons that largely defined its attitude to life. Catherine II was not the monster that it used to represent and are often still in the hands of unscrupulous contemporaries and descendants. But she was a real person, with all the inherent human feelings and weaknesses. Mother, who took away the child, wanting to take revenge, she decided to raise her grandson taking it from the parents. Paradox just say that for the benefit of Alexander the First it not get. However, the pedagogical system developed by Catherine for grandchildren, Alexander and Constantine, however, was a good cause – she brought in this difficult and delicate a matter as the raising of the Imperial children of the reasonableness of the classification, the lack of which had already begun badly to give myself to know. The first and main principle is that special attention was given to those postulates that scooped himself from Orthodox morality: “Try in all cases to instill in children a love for mankind and even compassion for every creature.”. “.Who has neither virtue nor courtesy, nor good conduct, nor knowledge of men and things, that will never happen in the people a person worthy of respect”. Fear can’t be taught, for in the soul, fear occupied, no more than you can invest a training exercise trembling on the paper to write. “the Main advantage of the instruction of children should consist in the love of others (do not do to others what you do not want to see you made it), in the General good will toward the human race, in benevolence to all men, gentle and lenient treatment for all.”. ” away from the eyes and ears of their Highnesses and all the bad examples, and that no one in front of the kids didn’t say rude, obscene and abusive words and angry”. Other principles were not such global things, but even today they have not lost relevance, and it is no wonder that in the future the Romanovs were nurtured their descendants right “Catherine”, even if – in theory. “I’ll take care to not have made a very pretty doll, because I don’t like them ” – written by Catherine immediately after the birth of her grandson Alexander. This is very common with the admonition of Alexander the Third, he made the governess of his sons: “Keep in mind that neither I nor the Grand Duchess does not wish to do them from hothouse flower”. In the Manual “on the preservation of health,” the Great princes Catherine dictates that their dress was simpler and easier that the food was simple, and “bude want to eat between lunch and dinner, give them a piece of bread”. Sleeping boys must “gently”, and on the couches under light blankets, summer cotton, hemmed sheets, and winter quilted. To bed and get up early. Useful, thought Catherine, at any time of the year as often as possible to spend time outdoors, and in winter seldom is near the fire. In the winter, the boys rooms, the temperature should not exceed 17 degrees Celsius. Summer Catherine told not to restrict the bathing of children and believed that it is good for them to learn how to swim. And again of course a comparison with the last Emperors.
Kravtsov, M. V. story – the science is fascinating and at the same time is contradictory. Looking at it often opposite things, and often find what I want, but whether the findings of the truth is another question. Long, very long Russian history played a humiliating political role of a maid. It is not surprising that large-scale façade of the history of the state was to see living persons of its creators. And our consciousness of the people, ideas, characters coloring books, and then repaint another demagogues from history. And now are still attracted many writers and journalists to expose people once lived hostages favorite author of the idea – but still not as good as before. Why? The answer is simple: many materials available to the General reader, dive suddenly breathes life into the figure, revealing a very real sense, serious contradictions, depth and tragedy – and the most common human qualities. How strange is Russian rulers, Kings, Emperors were human beings too. Moreover, they all were once children. Grew, played, studied, cried in desperation, to enjoy simple child’s play they were parents. There were the teachers. The kids tried to teach something to, submitting practical knowledge, forming the mind, influencing the moral development of the soul And nurturing when it is something without which can not do the Royal Scion of a sense of duty. Emperors of our rulers were called, as we all know, by the will of Peter the Great. And has created this effect for the sake. Russia actually grew into an Empire, a great Power. Accordingly, and prepare a worthy successor to the powers that be a matter of national necessity. However, in the eighteenth century, held in Russia in the turbulent political intrigues and coup d’état, emperors and empresses were somehow not up to pedagogy. The first Royal child, which tried to bring to the realities of the new time, was the future Emperor Paul the First. However, no wonder they say that General instability affects children, and it was not a simple child – alas, young Paul is very long, starting from birth, were considered adults as an important trump card in the political game. In addition, the child became a victim of the transition period paint-by-numbers from the Moscow to St. Petersburg scholarship. Initially brought up Paul’s aunt, his father Empress Elizabeth, daughter of Petrov. Rather, it was believed that was raised “a few minutes after the birth of his claimed in-law quarters and began to feed, nurture, educate first by the order of Elizabeth Petrovna, and after at the discretion of the busy hanushek and mamusiek. Catherine was supposed to look at his son once a week. Then he was given into the hands of Nikita Ivanovich Panin, teachers and Tutors,” (A. M. Peskov in the book “Paul I”). Catherine – the future Catherine the Great – which took away a son, bitterly recalled: “much of it was suffocating.” “in addition, it was surrounded by many old mamusiek that goofy care, it is devoid of common sense, brought him more suffering than good”.
