That's one of my favorite photos of Marie; thank you for posting it, Brielle14.

And Happy Birthday indeed to this "angel" with the precariously long wings, who yearned so much for that which she would never have.

Happy 105th Birthday Marie!  To think if she would have survived the revolution what great things life had in store for her.  I could see her marrying Lord Mountbatten around 1920 and soon thereafter having loads of children.  She would serve her post gracefully as the wife of a lord but with humor and cheer.  In the end, if she ever made it to 105, she would be remembered as a sweet, beautiful, and honorable woman of the 21st century.  If only her life were not cut so short.

Tell me sir....were there any plans for these two, or are you simply being a delightful romantic?  ::)

Nyeh zashta Rskkiya. We should stop this, people probably don't know what we're talking about!

Lord Mountbatten was apparently madly in love with Maria Nikolaevna and kept a photo of her at his bedside right up until the day he was assassinated.

Happy (Very belated!) Birthay, Maria!!!!

And, by the way...What's wrong being a little romantic, Etonexile? If we weren't all of us a little romantic, what's the use to be member of a Forum like this  one, discussing things about a family dead sooo many years ago to be considered?  ???

Long live, romanticism! (I don't mean fantasy, but ROMANTICISM. Romantic doesn't see things different than they are, they only are very sensitive and enjoy little sweet things of life that today seems to be fading away as romantic love, family, deep friendship, love for the place where we are born, love for the past, and hope for the future. I just love to be a romantic..and didn't like cinic people a bit. )

Sweet darling Mashka, a happy, happy birthday to you!
Here's a poem for you, I wrote it a couple of weeks ago for your sister Tatiana, and while I can't think of a new one, it's all yours today..

Mashka can't be with us,
on this, her special day..
She isn't here with us,
but her heart is, and it will stay.

If our love can reach you there,
each of us will let you know,
we wish you a happy birthday Mashka,
107 years..So long ago..

I'll never forget you.. (http://img481.imageshack.us/img481/8373/mariacollage4ch.jpg) :-*

Btw, it's my boyfriend's birthday too..Two of the sweetest people ever, are born at June 27th, it must be a lucky day! ;) Happy birthday both :-*

Happy birthday Maria Nicholaievna Romanova
May your rest in peace


Happy birthday to a special friend!
Although I haven't known you many years,
Perhaps because you've dried so many tears,
Pleasure reigns as I these greetings send.
Your happiness should last till all things end!
Because you've been so sweet and understanding--
In toughest times you've made me laugh and smile--
Rejoice in your own specialness awhile:
This I'm not requesting but demanding!
How else to make yourself the celebration,
Doing what does not come naturally?
Always your concern has been for me,
Yet now you must endure my adoration!

Happy Birthday Maria June 14, 2007 you would have been 108 years old !!!

(http://www.frozentears.org/Images/Albums/January-07/Ikon-06.jpg)

Imperial Mashka

Maria
you was good like Cinderella
because of how friendly you were
you were a angel
nice and beautiful
both inside and outside
always good and obedient.
you had big blue saucers
she was only a teen
who died at only 19.
and who did not live long enough to be a adult
why?
do you have to leave so early?
Many were afraid of those angelic wings
that was too freindly and placid.

Your destiny was to have 20 children
and mary a Russian soldier
your dreams were crused by those vile bolsheviks
who were dredfully rude and idiotic.
why?
what did you do wrong to be murdered?
it was not your falt
you were so innocent and lonely
rarely ever involed in anything
Rest in peace
Imperial Angel
in our hearts and souls
granting peace and prosperity.
For all eternity +

Valeria
Rest in Peace darling Mashka Angel !!!!
I want you to know that I love you Darling Mashka !!!

She was indeed born on June 14 Old Style, but that is June 27 on the Western calendar (although in 1899 it was June 26 on the Western Calendar.) She won't posthumously have her 'birthday' for another week and a bit.

happy belated birthday.

This isn't the most accurate analogy, but it works: Think of the whole Russian/Western calendar as a really BIG time zone. When it was 14 June for Maria, it was 26 June in the west -- just like how when it's 9:47 for me in Michigan, it's 12:47 in Los Angeles. It's the same moment, but we label it differently.

Now imagine everybody but Russia switched to daylight savings time in 1900. That made Maria's birthday 27 June outside of Russia.

Celebrating Maria's birthday on 14 June in the west is like setting your clocks to New York time even though you live in California. You'd end up eating your lunch at 9:00am instead of noon, and you'd celebrate New Year's at 9:00pm instead of midnight. It just doesn't work that way. If you live in the US and you want to wish your friend in Australia happy birthday, you'd wait until the right moment in *their* time zone, not yours. That's why it doesn't make sense for us to observe Maria's birthday on 14 June -- on Maria's calendar, that same moment would be 1 June.

And to think if she had not died she could still be alive today. I just received a news flash a few days ago talking about how people are living longer, especially women. A good sized list of people who lived quite a bit past 108 years old, and were in their right minds to actually answer the survey questions. They said their longevity was primarily due to their spirituality. So with that, I think Maria could have easily lived this long, except for the circumstances.
Maria, you know how I feel about you.  ;)

Happy birthday Masha! 109!

Sorry but I lack the capability on this computer to make any sort of really cool-looking birthday graphic with pictures of Maria. But I'd be really happy to see what other people come up with if they have anything!

Also, depending on what part of the world you're in, it may no be the 26th yet as I post this, but it is over here in Ontario, and I just wanted to send out my personal HBD to our beloved Mashka.  :D

Let me just say that today is in fact Marie's birthday according to the Gregorian calendar. Marie was simply the best , a dear, precious, kind, and yes, beautiful,  girl  and saint.  I am  deeply moved simply by the thought of her  and her life and will remember her always. The world was better for her brief presence in it. May she be in eternal peace.

I couldn't agree more...I was thinking yesterday ( and this is true for them all ,)  13, 17, 19, 21, 22 years is vastly better than none...we ,the world, at least had 19 years of Marie's presence.

Happy Birthday to the gentle, often angelic, sweet and cheerful Grand Duchess Maria Nicholaievna!

Usually I stick with the Gregorian calendar and June 26th for her birthday, but I don't see any problem in wishing the lovely Marie Nikolaevna a happy birthday twice!

Or thrice. I guess  you could go with June  26th ,Gregorian calendar, but that pretty much ceased to work at the end of the 19th century,; thus , even in the Gregorian style, her big day was the 27th in the 1900s. Alll three dates are a way of looking at it. I opt for today.


So, Happy birthday to the sweet,strong, beautiful and truly angelic, Mashka! Always, always remembered.

I guess I can understand why you'd celebrate her birthday on both the 26th and the 27th since that's a little iffy (although the 27th is most correct), but the 14th on the NS calender is too early. That's the OS date, and it's only the 1st of June OS.

Well, I understand your point, but  I'm simply equating the date  of Marie's birth, June 14th , on the calendar prevailing when and where she was born, with our present day June 14th (understood to be yesterday, in fact).  June 14th simply being taken as June 14th, though in 1899, that date was June 26th outside Russia in countries under the Gregorian system. No one in her family ,or country, for that matter, would have thought her birthday was June 26 or June 27( in the twentieth century.)

It's true that  yesterday she could be thought to be 116 years minus thirteen days, past her birth, but a strong case can be made for saying her birthdate was/is June14th.

It always goes so fast! Of course we still have Alexei's in mid-August followed by Olga 2 1/2 months later...

My thoughts today with the lovely, precious and incomparable Maria Nikolaevna on this, the anniversary of her birth! One of a small handful of faces I wish see when (hopefully) arriving in the heavens someday :-)

What's a mere 117 years when the birthday girl is the dear Maria Nikolaievna?

Happiest birthday wishes  and remembrances to "our" Marie, Mashka, Masha. Never really forgotten. In fact, I think of her arrival among us as on June 14th, but that's another story and another day to remember the girl whose eyes  ("Marie's saucers") still beguile us from pictures and descriptions.

Well, color my face red , and sorry,Marie, but though the sentiments are true, my months are off. I'm confident she'd forgive me, though probably also give me a wicked , well-deserved teasing.

Alrighty then. Today is June 14th. Marie was born on this day in 1899.That was according to the Julian calendar in effect in Russia then and for centuries.Her entire family knew it as such, as did about 130 million of her countrymen and the Church into which she was born.June 14th is also the date I correctly and first learned of her blessed arrival. So...

Happy birthday and fond remembrances to "our" Marie, Mashka, Masha. Never really far from our thoughts.Her eyes "Marie's saucers" still beguile us from pictures and descriptions.

It's perfectly acceptable behavior - at least in this particular forum - for one to jump the gun (by a month or so) and bestow praise on Darling Mashka :-) Never a bad time to do so. These birthday anniversaries just give us a convenient excuse.

In life she used to be overshadowed by her elder sisters, in the years post her death it was the name of Anastasia that drew attention. Maria Nikolaevna, third daughter of the last Tsar, had a reputation of being placid and almost angelic, as well as often ending as the butt of a joke because of her clumsiness. By nature Maria was essentially a Mother. Extremely earthy and straightforward, she felt awkward during official occassions, but would lose any shyness when face to face to an ordinary person. With remarkable memory for faces, Maria never forgot anyone and felt keen interest in other people. Occassionally there would be pangs of loneliness and jealousy in her heart, owing to the fact she suffered from the middle child syndrome, but her inborn unselfishness and devotion always triumphed over them.

Maria was the only one of the four sisters whose birth disappointed the Emperor so much that he had to take a long, solitary walk in the park before he could face his wife and greet the new baby. But it was also this daughter, who stood as the greatest support and pillar of strength to her parents during the days of February revolution in 1917, and a year later during their transport to Ekaterinburg. She died a horrible death in the hail of bullets and thrusts of blunt bayonets, just one among millions of innocent victims of the Russian Civil War. Today she is considered a martyr and a saint. But all she ever wanted was to have a family of her own.

Not easy with the dates of the Julian calendar, the Gregorian calendar, then before 1900 and after 1900. Sometimes I forget a date, so I think of the next one.
