To me, she's not Alix, thought it does look like her.. :-/
I don't think that those jewels survived the revolution, nearly none did, no matter who they belonged to.
I am assume that this is the original photo, but scanned?
Because, if you look at her jewelry closely, there is a blue sapphire, and a photo from that era (a sepia photo, no less) would not have any color.
You can see that the diamonds are the color white and gleaming, also.
This photo has been tampered with.
Or am I seeing things?

if the photo has been tampered with it was not by my hands i just really need input on who she is i hate to sound sentimental and silly buti am drawn to her image (probaly because like a magpie i am attracted to shiny sparkley things) i really want to give her a name and maybe find out more about her and hopefully in the process find another print like this but yes i have to agree with you this photo print or what ever it is has some blue/grey in it

I'd say Militza...though the sisters looked like twins! :)

I just finished reading "Imperial Dancer" by Coryne Hall which I thought was an excellent book. I just found it disconcerting never to really find out who was the father of Mathilde Kschessinska's son, Vova. Andrei Vladimirovich or Sergei Mikhailovich? What about the way Vova was raised, I don't think he ever knew the truth either? I admire the way Mathilde persevered after losing so much in the Revolution. And even though I admire the way Vova took care of her when she was elderly, I had to think with all the spoiling she did with him he grew up to be a big mama's boy. Never really having a life of his own, depending on his parents to the very end, til they were gone. Is Mathilde's biography "Dancing in Petersburg" any good? Does it have any good pics of her in it?
Any way....
I found a Russian site website with a picture on it. Can someone please translate the caption under the pic? Is that Andrei or Sergei with Mathilde & Vova?
Thanks!!!

It's Andrei Vladimirovich.

The full caption reads, "In Belgium with Grand Duke Andrei Vladimirovich and son Vladimir, around 1907." (It doesn't actually say that the boy is his son, though -- just hers.)

i found this photo in a vintage clothing and antique store i work in on the east coast in the us actually i think it is a repo and some one has written 1893 on it (which can mean nothing) i think it might be  maria pavlovna "the elder"  grand duchess of vladmir ... if this photois not her any ideas who she might be?


She's not russian at all, but egyptian....Khédiva Emineh Ilhami, born Prss Amina Khanum Effendimiz (1858-1931 )

Danjel, what a wonderful website!  I got lost and spent a long time looking at all of his pictures.  How did you know to look there??

Ordino,
You must put the entire url of the photo exactly. The url you put up is only to your account in general.
