Thank you Svetabel. Here goes another Royal Collection question. They labelled the following image as Elizaveta Mavrikievna with her two eldest sons, but the lady does not look like Elizaveta to me?



That's Princess Augusta. mother of Elizaveta M., so here she is with grandsons.

Struck me as Tatiana from afar but upon closer inspection I'm sure it's Maria.

Does anyone know the name of the woman wearing the kokoshnik and the pearls? She seems to be Tatiana's nanny

In this bit of the famous coronation painting of Alexander III and Maria Fyodorovna there are Olga Konstantinovna, Alexandra Iosifovna and littel Xenia Alexandrovna. I have problems identifying the two ladies on the left. Could the lady in the red court dress be Maria Pavlovna the Elder?

The lady in blue looks like Gdss Olga Feodorovna of Russia and the other one looks like Eugenie of Oldenburg, nee Eugenie Maxilianovna of Leuchtenberg :-D

Hello everyone! I recently saw this picture of the costume ball that took place at the the Winter Palace in 1903, and the woman on the right (behind Alix) seems so familiar to me.

Does anybody know who she is?



Thanks in advance!! :)

The little guide book for the 1903 costumes ball I haveč once downloded from the internet lists her as Princess Sofia Oberliani. Here is the original picture that was used in the composite:

Her name was actually Sonia Orbeliani. A fine woman.

I originally meant to give "Sonia" as a correction to the listed "Sofia" above.I now think Sofia might be her formal given name, though written references to her , by those close to her or otherwise,   overwhelmingly have her as Sonia.Until seeing it in the 1903 Ball catalog I'd never seen her referred to as Sofia.

Sonia/Sonya is one of the diminutive / affectionate forms from the name Sophia.
