It's indeed in French.
The full description is: "Les fiançailles du Grand Duc Mikhailovich avec la fille ainee du Tsar Alexandre III"
"The engagement between Grand Duke Mikhailovich and the elder daughter of Tsar Alexander III"

I think it's from Le Petit Journal. The frequently published color double portraits like this.

It's Nikita. She hadn't a son named Nicholas.;-)

Thanks for the correction. I was wondering about that. One of them should be named after their uncle, The Tsar.

The couple were quite right in NOT naming their children after family members..giving each and all individual names that stood out in the crowd (although there was another Dimitri & Andrei).

Hi,

Yes, it is refreshing to have some unusual names in the Russian Imperial Family.
There are far too many Nicholases, Alexanders, Marias and Olgas.
Cheers to Vladimir, Cyril and Tatiana and my favourite - Rastislav...
