Thank you all for your answers.Don't know who could it be,although to me she doesn't look very much like Ekaterina,but who knows...

Here is one portrait from collection of Grand Duke Nicholas Konstantinovich(1850-1918) who married Nadzeda Dreyer,but also had several mistresses...

So,any idea who could it be?




Looks very much like Alexandra Abaza, his mistress. After their affair she married a Demidov.

Sorry, I meant to say that she married Count Sumarokov-Elston after her affair with GN Nikolai. Demidov was her 1st husband.

Can anyone tell me where this was taken?

Thanks!
Grand Duchess Tatiana,  Friedberg, Denmark, August/Sept. 1910

Friedberg is in Hesse - near Frankfurt. The Imperial Family would stay there for several weeks when the Empress took a cure in Bad Nauheim. The ancient castle Friedburg is a school today

 IN the portrait from your link she looks just like in her photos.

This is definitely not GD Dmitry. It's one of the Suite's cavalry generals. It seems to me this is Gustaf Carlovich Mannerheim (later Marshall and President of Finland). At least from the back it's very resemble. Btw, when the photo is taken and where did you find it?

He looks too young to be Mannerheim, who was a young man in the beginning of the 1890s. But the photos is of 1908-1912 years due to the style of the Empress' dress and hat.

That's why I asked the date;). 1908 and 1912- two big differences. If it's 1911-1912 - it could be Mannerheim (for example he as a commander of Guard's Uhlans Regiment, or later as a Suite's General visited Imperial family during one of the official meetings). If 1910 or early - it could not be him.

I like this pic on AP main site very much, but...
The Gd in uniform is clearly Tatiana; next to her, undoubtly Maria. But who's the woman in front of us, semi - hidden by the cord?
