Having Fun! / Rare Pictures X

The previous topic already totaling more than 40 pages, I think it is time to start a tenth. I have no doubt he is as full as the others because there are still tons of unpublished photos of the Romanovs to discover and share.

Here's more from Russian archives :

I think it's high time to start a fifth section for this thread since the fourth already has 43 pages !

It's surprising because participants are able to find each time new photos of the Romanov !

The subject seems inexhaustible... To our greatest pleasure...

The Imperial Family / OTMA & Irina together Pictures
« on: November 05, 2006, 08:46:14 AM »
With to have seen of them only some, I find the photos where OTMA and Irina Alexandrovna pose together particulary beautiful and moving.

It's a pity really that Empress Alexandra did not let her daughters more attend the Grand Duchess Xenia's daughter because obviously, the girls seemed to appreciate themselves and get along well together.

Also, I thought of dedicating this space to them in order to gather there all the pictures where we can see OTMA and Irina together.

I thank by advance all future participants !

Having Fun! / Royal women in Tradional costume
« on: May 25, 2006, 11:13:52 AM »
I propose to start this new topic for post pictures and anecdotes of European Royal Ladies from various times and various states wearinf folk dress.

At the end of the XIXeme and the early XXeme, Queen and Princesses liked to pose in tradional costume from their native or adoptive state. And in the Twenties, some famous women like Queen Marie of Romania, contributed to popularize the ethnic dress.

I start with Queen Marie :



12
She was born in 1901, daughter of a conservative member of Parliament, the Baron Wilfred Ashley, and his wife Maude Cassel.

Her maternal grandfather was sir Ernest Cassel, one of the richest and most powerful men in Europe. When he died, in 1921, she inherited a part of his great fortune.

In 1920, she met for the first time Lord Louis Mountbatten and married him on 18 July 1922, in presence of the Royal Family of Great Britain.

They had two childs :

- Patricia, born in 1924,
- Pamela, born in 1929

Quicky, the couple was unhappy but had always make an effort for save appearances.

In the twenties and the mid-1930s, Lady Mountbatten, who had any idea of her whereabouts, lived a fashionable and privileged life.
But, during the World War II, she decided to consecrated her intelligence and energy to the service of others.

Later, in 1947, she had briefly been the last Vicereine before India's independence.

She is universally praised for her heroic efforts to relieve suffering during the Partition of the Punjab.

After her Viceroyalty in India, she continued to lead life of selfless service.

She died in 1960, in Borneo.

Tatiana Nicholaievna / Tatiana Surname
« on: February 23, 2006, 10:25:41 AM »
Is it true that her siblings called Tatiana "The Governess" ? I don't like this pejoratif surname because it was certainly a critic against her big personality. They could have called her "The Impérial Beauty" or "The Dancer". It would have more flattering !

Tatiana Nicholaievna / Tatiana with Maria pictures
« on: February 19, 2006, 09:23:08 AM »
I've noticed that Tatiana and Maria were not often taken together on photos. If you observe, you can see more pictures of Tatiana with Olga and Anastasia but not a lot with Maria. Why this ? And does anyone have pictures where the two sisters posed together, please ?
