Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Died in 1918, her family lost the revolution.
Sad, site of the royal family execution, by chance someone posted it yesterday https://cdni.rbth.com/rbthmedia/images/2017.12/original/5a26a66915e9f959c73d351d.jpg
Another Rasputin victim. Pretty young lady. If she were around today she'd be a member of the Glitterati culture
She was definitely NOT a victim of Rasputin. She and her whole family were brutally butchered by the henchmen of the Bolshevik revolutionaries; and all of Russia suffered immensely for more than 70 years after that senseless, cruel slaughter.
Stomp down beautiful. So they did make them like that years ago.
There was more than one Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna of Imperial Russia!This one was the daughter of Tsar Nicholas II.The other one (18 August 1819 – 21 February 1876) was the daughter of Emperor Nicholas I.
A stunning woman. A tragic loss. It's too bad the Tsar didn't see the writing on the wall. He wasn't too bright a ruler, but the massacre of the royal family does not justify the means, unless you are a communist.
