I guess I can understand why you'd celebrate her birthday on both the 26th and the 27th since that's a little iffy (although the 27th is most correct), but the 14th on the NS calender is too early. That's the OS date, and it's only the 1st of June OS.

Well, I understand your point, but  I'm simply equating the date  of Marie's birth, June 14th , on the calendar prevailing when and where she was born, with our present day June 14th (understood to be yesterday, in fact).  June 14th simply being taken as June 14th, though in 1899, that date was June 26th outside Russia in countries under the Gregorian system. No one in her family ,or country, for that matter, would have thought her birthday was June 26 or June 27( in the twentieth century.)

It's true that  yesterday she could be thought to be 116 years minus thirteen days, past her birth, but a strong case can be made for saying her birthdate was/is June14th.

It always goes so fast! Of course we still have Alexei's in mid-August followed by Olga 2 1/2 months later...

My thoughts today with the lovely, precious and incomparable Maria Nikolaevna on this, the anniversary of her birth! One of a small handful of faces I wish see when (hopefully) arriving in the heavens someday :-)

Happy Birthday to one Sweet Marie! The perfect princess, daughter, sister and wife & mother (had history allowed for the latter).

May we all be so lucky to have you watching down on us from above!

and so on this day we remember Maria Nikolaevna. The third girl, the "disappointment". The sweet, unselfish and brave soul.
