She definately looks Daria.  Look at the chin, hair, ears, nose.  And as Mandie said, the first picture may be when she's older.

Heres Daria, umm maybe it is her , but an older her? :-/


I believe she is not Daria. I've seen the picture on some site, and I'm sure it's a mistake, the woman is not Daria.

........ She herself was executed in Leningrad in 1937.




Yikes :o, Any details on this?  Or just part of the "overall purges" of that awful era.


BTW, if that is indeed Daria in the Court Dress, then it looks like the same woman to me as in the first  group photo.

I don't know all the details but she wound up living in either St Petersburg or Moscow after the Revolution. Somehow she became known just as 'Dora Leuchtenberg' and remarried for a 3rd time to a former Austrian officer. For years she worked at a library and somehow in the 30s became implicated (most likely falsely) in being an informer and in anti-government activities. She and her husband were both arrested and after 'trials' were shot.

That woman in a Russian-court dress might be Princess Maria of Leuchtenberg, nee Countess Grabbe, spouse of Prince Nikolay Nikolaevitch Leuchtenberg-Romanovskiy.

Just for comparison. Prince Nikolay and his wife Maria.

I don't thing so, I think the woman with Olga and Peter and in the court dress is Daria.

I'm new here, but I'd need some help identifying people in this picture. I suppose it was taken at Yalta in 1891, in the silver wedding of tsar Alexander III and Empress Maria Feodorovna.






I believe I've identified some people at the picture:





1 - GD Alexander Mikhailovich (?)
5 - GD Ksenia Alexandrovna
7 - GD Olga Alexandrovna
8 - GD Alexandra Iosifovna (?)
10 - Tsarevich Nicholas Alexandrovich
11 - Empress Maria Feodorovna
12 - GD Michael Alexandrovich (?)






14 - GD Nicholas Nikolaievich (?)
16 - GD Dmitri Konstantinovich (?)
19 - GD George Alexandrovich (?)
20 - GD Konstantin Nikolaievich (?)
21 - Tsar Alexander III
23 - GD Andrew Vladimirovich (?)
24 - GD Vladimir Alexandrovich (?)


Any guess?

I think you're right about #19. I hemmed & hawed for awhile but now looking at Nicholas's age I don't think it could be GA.
