Happy 117th Birthday, Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna!




    Today is Grand Duchess Olga’s 117th birthday. It was the story of Anastasia that piqued my interested in the Romanovs, but as I have “gotten to know” Olga, she has become my favorite by far.

    Anna Vyrubova said of her “Olga was perhaps the cleverest of the girls, her mind being so quick to grasp ideas, so absorbent of knowledge that she learned almost without application or close study. Had she been allowed to live her natural life she would, I believe, have become a woman of influence and distinction.”

    The girl with the equal hat of anastasia probably is Olga, Tatiana or Maria ,and the lady on front is Alexandra ,I think …



    „The Grand Duchesses were fast leaving childhood behind them and blossoming into charming girls; they did not greatly resemble one another, each was a type apart, but all were equally lovely in disposition. I cannot believe that any men so inhuman existed as those who, it is said, shot and stabbed those defenceless creatures in the house of death at Ekaterinburg. Apart from their beauty, their sweetness should have pleaded for them, but, if it is true that they have “passed,” then surely no better epitaph could be theirs than the immortal words, “Lovely and pleasant were they in their lives, and in their death they were not divided.” - Lily Dehn

    The Romanov Family’s Alphabet v.2 - V is for Victorian Era.

    The Victorian era of British history was the period of Queen Victoria’s reign beginning from 20 June 1837 to 22 January 1901. The era was preceded by the Georgian period and followed by the Edwardian period. Victoria’s granddaughter, Empress Alexandra Feodorovna of Russia, was pregnant with Grand Duchess Anastasia when the Queen died in 1901, thus marking the end of the Victorian Era.
