My God. It is clearly noticeable you do not do anything unless I am here pushing you around..The Palace is a mess. Where is Douglas?. He knows his sole responsibility is to keep the floors clean and make sure the garbage has been picked up.. Obviously, he has not been up to fulfill our expectations.. OFF with his head !!...

They were not common. It was more of a "Novelty" for the rich..

silly question; what color was Zenaida's hair?
Black..she had very blue eyes and a olive complexion.
Are you sure?. I somehow had the impresion her hair was anything but black. I  had the impresion her hair was middle brown or dark blonde..

Well, she did manage to smuggle her vast collection of jewells out of Russia via a diplomatic bag (I'm working from memory here), and she finally left Russia on February, 1920 and died on September that same year. Maybe you are right, for her, rank was everything and although she was a Grand Duchess by her own right, by the time she left Russia, the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin was no longer either

Hi,

do you know who lived in the palace between 1850 and 1917?

I think it was a house for "Minor Royalty", it that is what you mean by your question, although I do not know who lived there. I understood it was the equivalent of a house  of "grace and favor" or something like that, like where GD Xenia Alexandrovna lived in England...
But if it was for "Minor Royalty" I am sure "Tsar Douglas" lived there.... hehehehe

Indeed.....

I think this summarizes all.. She knew who she was, her place in society and what it was expected of her.....

I understand what is said here, but for discussion's sake I thought of posting the other side of the coin here.  I'm not that familiar w/ the details, just going by what I've read here...wasn't part of Miechen's "job" to support the monarchy and extended Romanov family?  It seems she conspired to advance her own line, established a rival court practically and undermined the reigning Emperor and Empress?  Or is that exaggerating the case?

Wondering,
T

I wonder what would have happened if Michen would have been successfull in be throwing Nichols II? She was as Regal and Elegant as  the Dowager Empress but I believe Michen was much more involved in Politics. Who knows?, maybe the Romanov would still be ruling Russia...

If I'm not mistaken Prince Philip comes from the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Gluksburg but adopted the Mountbatten last name (which originally was Battenberg). So their last name should be Mountbatten, but I believe it was Churchill's idea to adopt the Windsor surname in the best interest of the British monarchy... but that is subject for the Windsor thread...
