hello Grand Duchess, I know this is slightly off the main topic but i was intrigued by your statement that GD Wilhelm Ernst of Weimar was a sadist and his first wife was rummered to have killed herself. i would be very pleased if you have any more information on this ruler.

I think there is a thread on Saxe-Weimar ?

I would love to know if Moretta was happy with Adolf ?

Based on what writings there have been published about the marriage, she seems as happy as she could've been--that's not saying a whole lot though. She seemed more content than really happy, though heartbroken at having no children.

The two Sashas?? Could you say exactly whom did you mean? Alexander of Battenberg was never known as SASHA. And who is the second?

Maybe. But still Alexander of Battenberg was not SASHA but Sandro.

So she could speak about Zoubkoff.

Interestingly I read a little while ago, in Anthony Blunts biography, that as well as rescuing the letter between Vicky and QV he also rescued a collection of letters between Vicky and Moretta....

That should make very interesting reading...although a small section was already been published.  ;)

Sasha was Alexander Zoubkoff's nickname.

Yes, it's understandable, I just can't agree that Alexander of Battenberg's nickname was Sasha.

Yes...Only Irene & Heinrich's wedding was photographed.  ;)

According to the new book "The memoirs of Emily Loch" (lady-in-waiting to Helena), she has in her albums a picture of Victoria in her wedding dress. Unfortunately it is not included in the book.
