Happy birthday Grand Duchess Anastasia…



    Today is Anastasia’s birthday! Born 18th (o.s. 5th) June 1901 to Nicholas II and his wife, Alexandra at Peterhof, Russia. The youngest daughter out of the five children born. Happy Birthday Anastasia!




    Happy 111th Birthday to Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia. She was born on June 18th, 1901 at Peterhof Palace in Peterhof Russia. To her family she was known as shvibzik (the Russian name for Imp).

    She was an interesting character, that’s for sure. Nastya was the family trickster and would play to and be nasty “the point of being evil” as her cousin Princess Nina Georgievna once said.

    Gleb Botkin once stated that “She undoubtedly held the record for punishable deeds in her family, for in naughtiness she was a true genius.” When WW1 broke out, she and her elder sister Maria would visit the wounded soldiers in the hospital. Anastasia had her own regiment in the army but unfortunate, no photos of her in uniform are known to exist.

    Anastasia is the most famous Romanov due to claims of women being her after her brutal murder in 1918 when she was just 17 years old. She was a beautiful young lady, a good sister and a wonderful person. Happy Birthday, Anastasia!

    The Romanov Family’s Alphabet - F is for Finland.

    For summer holidays on their yacht, the Imperial Family would often journey to the Finnish skerries. They would play tennis, have picnics in the open air, swim in the sea, and take photographs of each other.

    “The Emperor,” remembered Sophie Buxhoeveden, “would go to shore with the gentlemen of his suite to walk or play tennis on a rather primitive court, and in autumn there was generally some shooting, in which the officers of the yacht joined. The young Grand Duchesses sometimes went about with their father, replacing their mother, while the little Tsarevich played with the ship’s boys on the rocky beach. It was a healthy life for the young people and the bracing air of Finland did them all good.”

    The Romanov Family’s Alphabet - C is for Camera.

    There was a real explosion of photography in Russia around 1900 when the Kodak Brownie camera (originating from Rochester, New York, United States) made its appearance. Tsar Nicholas II and his family were great collectors of photographs. Pictures were carefully pasted in big albums, many of them green and stamped with gold crowns. These albums were all over the private quarters of the family, but many of them were kept stacked up on the ledge of the balcony of his New Study in the Alexander Palace. In dozens and dozens of volumes they covered his entire life from childhood right up to his exile to Siberia in 1917.
