Re: What Did OTMA Do In 1913?

Was looking at The Court of the Last Tsar by King, and found this;

The highlight of the visit came on May 20, when the entire imperial family attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Romanov Dynasty Memorial. Designed by the architect A. I. Adamson, the memorial would include depictions of sixteen of the eighteen Romanov sovereigns, including a statue of Nicholas II-- the first such representation of a living monarch ever to be raised in Russia. The emperor, the empress, and members of the imperial family attended a Te Deum in the Assumption Cathedral that beautiful early-summer day, the blue sky stretching for miles into the distance of that great Russian plain. "Their Majesties," recalled Dzhunkovsky, "were accompanied to the Cathedral by constant shouts of Hurrah!' that drowned the choir." A large white canvas tent, decorated with double headed eagles, had been erected next to the memorial site. Nicholas, Alexandra, Tsesarevich Alexei, the four grand duchhesses, and Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna each laid a foundation stone engraved with his or her name.

In my files I had labeled it as 'Borodino 1912', but it must have been wrong label, since Aleksei wore an uniform during Borodino celebrations. Unfortunately, I did not have any other English source for correct identification. This was shot on May 31st 1912:

EDIT: Or was you talking about May 20th 1913, or about the photo of laying stones, from 1912?

It was found under the Tenecentary chapter, so I wouldn't know.(I'm horrible at spelling, please excuse the butchering!)
Why I enjoy watching The Andy Griffith Show at 2am, I'll never know.
Why yes, I do enjoy comical stylings of Anastasia :]

Several staff members presented Nicholas and Alexandra with a beautiful icon on the occasion of the tercentenary of the Romanov dynasty in 1913. This icon, by V. Guryanov with an oklad by Dmitri Smirnov, was presented on 21 February 1913 (OS) and is shown at:

What a find!

The description of the icon on that web-site also states that it came from the Alexander Palace.

I presume that the inventory number for the icon (ГЭ Инв. N ЭРО-8752) indicates that it is now kept in the State Hermitage (Государственный Эрмитаж).

And yes, St. Anastasia of Sirmium, although among the Orthodox she is known as "Deliverer from Potions".

There are also other people we know at least by name in the list. Trupp and Demidova move us because they died in Ekaterinburg, but there are others to remember, IMHO:

T. Tchemodurov died in Ekaterinburg too.
A. Tegleva, Gilliard's later wife, wanted to follow the IF in Ipatev House and wasn't allowed.
She, along with M. Tutelberg and A. Romanova was in Tobolsk with IF.
M. Zanotti was faithful to the end - i don't remember well, was she old/ill? I unclearly remember she couldn't go with them in captivity for some reason...

Thank you for the explanation!

'Maria the beautiful': you just posted what I was typing as a reply.  I also noticed that, apparently, even Maria Vishnyakova contributed to this gift.

Madeleine Zanotti did travel to Siberia in 1917-8. She was actually only slightly older than the Empress. She was born on October 14th, 1869, as the daughter of Francesco Zanotti (1835-1908), Kammerdiener to Prince Alexander of Hesse and later to Prince Louis of Battenberg, and Emma Piper. Madeleine Zanotti married Henri Delacroix, a French merchant, in 1920. Her husband died in Wiesbaden in 1922, and Madeleine is said to have lived at the New Palace in Darmstadt from 1922. She died in Darmstadt on February 16th, 1941.

Spirdidovitch recorded in "Souvenirs..." Vol II Ch. 14 "21 February was the anniversary day of the election of Mikhail Feodorovich, and Their Majesties received, in the morning, the congratulations of their closest servants."  This is almost certainly when this icon was presented to them.

They then went to attend services at the Khazan Cathedral.
