It's funny because reading the answers, there is one thing that is not taken into account: the Grand Duchesses and Alexei would probably have a strong connection with Russia and Russian culture.

I know for the "Club des 5". Not fan, but essential in children's literature.

The Protea is apparently a well-known ship. I found pictures and information about it.

As the principle of this topic is to talk about Russian music, I'm going to share some of my favorite artists.

I will start with Pelageya, singer of Russian popular songs, which belongs to my favorites in the style:

A small sample of my favorite interpretations. It is a Russia so warm, so "emotional", so poetic.

I keep the titles in Russian:

Любо, братцы любо

Не для тебя

Вишня Белоснежная

With three other artists, a cappela:

Every time I see the photos where Romanov children are always smiling with him. It's sad that the war separated them.

Yes. Great music. I have never seen the series but I came across the music and I listen to it often.

The girl looks like a little Olga. But I admit that I will not have made the connection.

I think there is worse, like being born on July 16th or 17th.

Olga, so far away from other members of her family. Born in the cold month of November.

Yes. There are many pictures of Flameng in Russia taken during the execution of this painting, kept at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Flameng is sitting next to his wife (Henriette Flameng, daughter of a prominent French politician).

Like the imperial family, Flameng was passionate about photography.

Note that in 1901 (or 1896, I'm not sure), when Nicolas II comes to France, he notices Flameng and comes to shake his hand in person. It says of Flameng's affinity with the imperial court of Russia.

A portrait of Queen Victoria, but of course we recognize Nicolas II on the left:
