Some interesting pictures. Unfortunately, each time I clicked on one, I not only got the picture but some others  showing bodybuilders with captions such as 'Want to increase your muscle mass?'!!!

Was the picture in the gondola taken around the time of Boris and Giovanna's wedding?

Strange. I'm using 2 pcs and on neither I see such stuff. Next time I'll go with the good old Tinypic. Sorry for the inconvenience.

It's from 1926.

Perhaps it's my browser.

Boris and Giovanna married in 1929 so presumably they knew one another for quite a long time beforehand. His mother was a Bourbon-Parma, so was he perhaps related to Giovanna?

I just remembered that I'm using addblockers :-).

According to Stephane Groueff, Boris and Giovanna first met in September 1927. That picture is from Boris' first trip abroad as tsar \1926\.

I think it could be his sister Eudoxia.

That sounds realistic. They are obviously not a courting couple from the body language, but I believe that Boris was on good terms with his brother and sisters.

Great pictures,guys. The woman next to Boris is Eudoxia for sure. Is it confirmed that the photo was taken circa 1926?
Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. No one was there.

Well, the description of the photo says so. :-)

And who is the lady on the right, holding Simeon? Is she Giovanna's mother, or perhaps Boris's stepmother?
