In Grand Duke George Alexandrovich's photo album (so nicely linked to us by Joanna) there is a photo identified as:

"Portrait of Anna Dosaeva."

Could anyone please identify for me her connection with Grand Dike George A?  I am unfamiliar with the name.

Anna Dosaeva is a woman who founded the dying GD Georgiy, he died on her arms. Later she went to Empress Maria Fedorovna to tell about Georgiy's last minutes.

Hi Svetabel - please could you tell me where you found the information that Anna Dosaeva was the lady who held G. D. George when he died as I would like to find out more if it is from a book you have read.
Many Thanks

I think I read this in a bio on Empress Maria F. by Elena Khorvatova, the book is in Russian.

Link to video on Abbas Tumani. It seems it had survived all these years until a fire destroyed part of the palace a few years ago. Video in Russian.

I found this blog with many photos (Google Translate) https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=nl&ie=UTF8&prev=_t&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=ru&tl=en&u=http://indigogeorgia.tourister.ru/blog/2698&usg=ALkJrhjW7XrsnwyH5A4L6lUpAy3Kv55Tug

Can anyone help me with this:  Long discussions were, what better place to stay the Crown Prince, and then offered Davos, while the most famous resort for pulmonary patients, it is well-maintained, and other European resorts.  But the sad experience of being the Grand Duke in Algeria led to the fact that all the Abastumani was preferred.


What happened when and to whom in Algeria?

GD Georgiy lived winters of 1891 and 1892 in Algeria as the doctors thought that would be the best place for him because of his illness. But the Algeria climate appeared not to be good for Georgiy and he was sent to the Caucausus.

Thanks Svetabel. I thought GD Georgiy started living in Abas Tuman in 1891 (or perhaps even earlier) as the miniatures of the Fabergé Imperial Caucasus Egg are dated 1891 and one miniature is showing his house in AT. So chosing the Caucasus had probably nothing to do with his stay in Algiers in 91 and 92?

I wonder why they did not chose Davos in Switzerland for the Grand Duke as that was the best place to go in those days.
