Olgasha, are you sure this is Maria? It doesn't look like her to me... :-\
And when he shall die, // Take him and cut him out in little starres, // And he will make the Face of heaven so fine, // That all the world will be in Love with night, // And pay no worship to the Garish Sun.

GDV, it is Maria, the photo was taken between 1899-1900, Olga and Tatiana have their own portraits there in the same room, it's got to be Maria... just look at those eyes!

Has anyone got a picture that I found in a book called Great Mysteries of the 20th Century? It has the whole of NAOTMAA, and some others, and it is captioned as being taken in Sweden in 1909? I am guessing the others are Swedish relatives.

I'm guessing it's this one, but I only have half of it:

Here's more of it, as well as one that's slightly different but of rotten quality.

In this picture we can see Maria standing behind her family, next to the imperial train. This photo represent the arrival of Emperor Nicholas II and his family on the platform of the station at General Headquarters Mogilev May, 1916.

From Faberge, well known photo of Maria:

The book I scanned this from say it's 1915. An officer is saying something to Nicholas..I love Marie's expression...

Much more probably Crimea May 1916, isn'it? There are other pictures of those days.

Most likely...the book also said it was on the Stardart...which didn't seem right either. If it's 1916  it's amazing how younger  Alexi looks when he puts back on a sailor suit rather than  the army one he was mostly wearing at this time. Perhaps because his army uniform  was modeled after the adult one

That one was indeed taken during the IF's visit to the South Crimea in May of 1916, exact place might be Sebastopol as well -- there is series of the photos, IF visited cruiser -- and I've got the full version. Right now I have no access to the photos, but hopefully I would be maybe able to post soon.

That pic made me believe that the heir didn't exclusively wear the army uniform and that he wore a sailor suit during the war years. The pic is from ROMANOVS: LOVE POWER AND TRAGEDY.

Exactly nena, the book is The Romanos, Love, Power and Tradgy  on page 275 . The caption   says it was on the Standart, but it's far too big a ship to be that.



As matushka mentioned there are photos of this time. I think this maybe one .



Glad you liked it Sarushka

Interesting. I wonder if Aleksei wore a sailor suit during the war years when he was *not* in the presence of sailors?
