I also think that Olga was beautiful.  I feel that she also had a kind and approachable way to her. 

I love the 1905 portrait!

I am very curious about the Ropsha Palace.  Does anyone have a list of who stayed and lived there?

Hi everyone, been a while since I was on, I have been pretty busy with work.  I am looking for Noblesse Russe Portaits 1 by jacques ferrand.  Does anyone know where I can find a copy? 

why did the marriage between Olga and Peter fall apart?

could it be a private sitting room?

I bet that there must of been.  I know that many of the Romanov men had mistresses and some even had children by their mistresses but I bet that was more accepted but for a married woman who was also a Grand Duchess there must of been disapproval.  Though I know that there was a considerable age difference between Olga and Peter

Great pictures!  I really like the one with Nicholas pushing the pram and yes in 1917 it was advanced for a man to be pushing a pram, though it definitely depended on the man as well!

Here is the text from the page before[start of the paragraph[]second part[]

it is nice to know that Maria Feodorovna did acknowledge that Nicholas did make Olga happy. Who knows why Xenia did not like Olga's Nicholas, perhaps she shared her mother's opinions or perhaps she was a little bit envious of Olga being married to a man that she loved, just opinion but who knows

Hi Ann, yes I agree, the 3 elder brothers definitely look quite alike.  Paul looks very different from all of them

was it because and I hate to say it like this, please forgive me, that Olga's second husband was not royalty or nobility?  Or was it, as in some people, that you just don't like the in law?

Yes, how come Xenia didn't like Olga's husband?
