  1. Maria's siblings were Grand Duchess Olga of Russia, Grand Duchess Tatiana of Russia, Grand Duchess Anastasia of Russia, and Tsarevich Alexei of Russia. Maria's Russian title ( Velikaya Knyazhna Великая Княжна) is most precisely translated as "Grand Princess", meaning that Maria, as an "Imperial Highness" was higher in rank than other Princesses in Europe who were "Royal Highnesses".

    • The Death and Legacy of Maria Romanov

    As a young duchess, Maria Romanov reportedly loved to flirt and discuss her dreams of marriage and children. Her childhood nanny recalled how “One day the little Grand Duchess Mari[a] was looking out of the window at a regiment of soldiers marching past and exclaimed, ‘Oh! I love these dear soldiers; I should like to kiss them all.'” As many of her contemporaries noted, “had she not been the daughter of the Tsar, this strong, warmhearted girl would have made some man an excellent wife.” Lord Mountbatten, who was cousin to the grand duchesses and met them when he was a young boy, would later reminisce, “I was crackers about Mari[a], and was determined to marry her. She was absolutely lovely.” Although the pair would never meet again, Mountbatten kept a picture of Maria Romanov near his bedside until his death. Despite her wealth of adulation and her royal blood, Maria Romanov and her sisters had a surprisingly spartan young life. The Big Pair and the Little Pair each shared bedrooms...

    Enter Grigori Rasputin, a Siberian peasant mystic who enjoyed great success passing himself off as a holy man with special powers to the ladies of Russian high society. Thanks to his elite connections, Rasputin was eventually introduced to the tsar himself. The truth about Rasputin’s seemingly-magical ability to heal Alexei is still shrouded in mystery, but even the most skeptical historians agree that for whatever reason, when the “Mad Monk” prayed over the tsarevich, the boy’s bleeding stopped. Naturally, the imperial couple was overjoyed. Alexandra, in particular, fell under Rasputin’s spell, becoming entirely beholden to the only man who could heal her “baby sweet.” Soon enough, Rasputin was spending copious amounts of time with the royal family. Maria Romanov and her sisters seemed to be equally taken with Rasputin, confiding in him and asking for advice on how to handle their teenage crushes. “My little Pearl,” Rasputin once wrote to Maria, “I miss your simple soul. We will se...

    With the rumors surrounding Rasputin complicating things for the Romanovs, their position grew more precarious still with the outbreak of World War I in 1914. Olga and Tatiana began to work as nurses alongside their mother in a military hospital, while Maria and Anastasiavisited wounded soldiers, cheering them up with their humor and lively personalities. Nonetheless, Russia’s initial enthusiasm for the war began to fade as the casualties mounted. Soon, it was whispered that the tsar’s poor decisions were made at the behest of Rasputin. The family’s fortunes began to truly unravel when Rasputin was murdered by one of their own relatives in 1916. Nicholas’s power, already tenuous due to the war, continued to weaken as popular discontent grew among the poor and disenfranchised who were increasingly angry with the bourgeoisie. Finally, a full-blown revolution broke out in February 1917, forcing the tsar to abdicate, leaving the Romanov family at the mercy of the new provisional governm...

    Initially, Maria Romanov and the rest of the imperial family were exiled to Tobolsk, Siberia, where life was dull but bearable. However, when the Marxists revolutionaries known as the Bolsheviks seized power in October 1917, they decided to move the family to Ekaterinburg, where the fervently-Bolshevik population would prevent any attempts at rescue or escape. The Romanovs were kept inside a house with whitewashed windows and only allowed to go outside for one hour each day. Even Maria’s good nature was pushed to its limits; as she recorded, “It is difficult to write anything pleasant, there is little of that here.” Yet, Maria Romanov soon found she was still able to pursue her favorite pastime in the “House of Special Purpose.” She began flirting with the teenage guards, one of whom later recalled heras “a girl who loved to have fun” and quickly became the guards’ favorite of the Romanov children. Even Yakov Yurovsky, leader of the secret police who had been sent to guard the famil...

    In the early hours of July 17, 1918, Yurovsky woke the family and told them to dress and go to the basement. The Romanovs hoped that this meant rescue by their supporters. While it was true that pro-Romanov forces were closing in on Ekaterinburg, the actual reason was far grimmer. The Bolsheviks had decided to execute the royal family rather than move them. Yurovsky read this news aloud to Nicholas who barely had time to cry “What?” before Russia’s last tsar was shot in the chest. The basement rumbled with shots and screams, but when the smoke cleared, the terrified grand duchesses were all still alive. Unbeknownst to their captors, they had sewn the royal jewels into their corsets, turning them into a protective armor. One of the executioners repeatedly attempted to stab Maria Romanov in the chest, but “the bayonet wouldn’t pierce her bodice” so he shot the sobbing girl directly in the head. As the bodies were being carried outside, one of the girls — either Maria or Anastasia. acc...

  2. Maria Antonia, Princess of Bavaria, Electress of Saxony (18 July 1724 – 23 April 1780) was a German princess, composer, singer, harpsichordist and patron, known particularly for her operas Il trionfo della fedeltà (Dresden, summer 1754) and Talestri, regina delle amazoni (Nymphenburg Palace, February 6, 1760).

  3. The Grand Duchess Maria Romanov had the face of an angel and a sunny disposition to match. But life for this royal was far from easy, and it wasn’t long before her gilded childhood morphed into a terrifying nightmare. Just like her sister Anastasia, Maria’s short life and legacy is greatly defined by the mystery surrounding her gruesome end.

  4. Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna was the first Romanov to marry into the British royal family. Between her jealousy-fueled rivalry with her mother-in-law, Queen Victoria, to her loveless marriage to Prince Alfred, she would also be the last Romanov to shack up at Buckingham Palace.
