The Romanovs: 1613-1918


British Ambassador to Israel Matthew Gould held a reception in honor of Simon Sebag Montefiore’s Jerusalem: the Biography (W & N 2011) on July 27, 2011. Eschewing long ceremonial speeches in favor a conversation as direct and lively as Sebag Montefiore’s immensely readable history of Jerusalem, the Ambassador conducted an interview with the author, raising many interesting questions in relation to the book, the choices made in the process of writing, and the Montefiore family history.

Ambassador Gould noted that Simon Sebag Montefiore comes from a family that is “a part of modern Israeli history” and asked the author about his relationship to family history.
