In memory of darling Marie Nikolaevna on this day, the 26th of June. The very definition of a princess! A remarkably beautiful and vibrant young lady. We cherish your memory and wish you blessings on this commemoration of your birthday. May we all play the role of Earl Louis Mountbatten for a day, at least!

Dearest beautiful Maria, of all the amazing personalities I've come to know from my studies of the Romanov dynasty, you are the one I would have most like to have known.   I feel a kinship with you.   Someday, in heaven, I hope we become friiends.    Happy Birthday Maria.  Rest in peace.

Let me just say that today is in fact Marie's birthday according to the Gregorian calendar. Marie was simply the best , a dear, precious, kind, and yes, beautiful,  girl  and saint.  I am  deeply moved simply by the thought of her  and her life and will remember her always. The world was better for her brief presence in it. May she be in eternal peace.

I couldn't agree more...I was thinking yesterday ( and this is true for them all ,)  13, 17, 19, 21, 22 years is vastly better than none...we ,the world, at least had 19 years of Marie's presence.

Happy Birthday to the gentle, often angelic, sweet and cheerful Grand Duchess Maria Nicholaievna! It surely seems that you always wanted to do whatever you could to help others, and that is such an admirable quality. May God bless your spirit and memory, and may you be celebrating it even now with your family!

She looks pretty good for her age doesn't she? :-)

Usually I stick with the Gregorian calendar and June 26th for her birthday, but I don't see any problem in wishing the lovely Marie Nikolaevna a happy birthday twice!

Or thrice. I guess  you could go with June  26th ,Gregorian calendar, but that pretty much ceased to work at the end of the 19th century,; thus , even in the Gregorian style, her big day was the 27th in the 1900s. Alll three dates are a way of looking at it. I opt for today.


So, Happy birthday to the sweet,strong, beautiful and truly angelic, Mashka! Always, always remembered.
