This photo was with other photos of the grand duchess  Ksenia Aleksandrovna , I think the princess Irina Yusupova but you recognize the man? thanks


Today watching the documentary film, "Olga: The Last Grand Duchess", perhaps I seen the man in the photo. Do you know the identity of the man guest of the Empress in Hvidøre? Thanks

It's definitely not Nikolai Koulikovsky.

Nikolai Koulikovsky is to the left of GD Olga, the man of the photo is to the right of Olga but do not know his identity.

My feeling is that he is some sort of close family friend or retainer, but not a relation. Could he be Xenia's confidant Serge Dolgoruky - has anyone seen a picture of him?

I have not seen photos of Serge Dolgoruky, but it is possible because the woman in the photo, probably named Irina ( later mistakenly identified as Irina Yusupova) . Serge Dolgoruky had married Irina Vassilievna Naryshkin (1879-1917) , Xenia friend. The daughter Olga was Viscountess Tredegar. Possible?

I have read that Irina was the mother ( from the first marriage ) of Maria Illarionovna Vorontsova-Dashkova ,wife of  Prince Nikita Alexandrovich son of GD Xenia.

I finally found the photos I spoke of up thread of who, I believe is Irene's son,  Prince Waldemar of Prussia in civilian clothes in Finland with the family. He has  a built up shoe heel  , sugesting one leg is shorter than the other at this time ( 1912?)



I recognize the officer with him as someone I have seen in photos on the Standart

and that Prince Waldemar was a hemophiliac, just like his Little cousin Alexei Nikolaievich of Russia.  :(

Exactly , that's why his  shorter leg here is significant...like Alexi couldn't fully bend his leg for a year after the attack in Sala. Sadly two of Irene's three boys had the disease .

I found this beautiful painting of Christmas at the Winter Palace in the time of Nicholas I; I belive I recognize Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna and her children (based upon their ages, I'm guessing the painting was done sometime in the 1850s), but I was wondering if someone could help me idenitify anyone else depicted, especially the group of women in the foreground.  Download the image for full size, and thank you!

No, that's no Elena V. I don't see a resemblance actually. Some noble girl, probably the 1903 ball is the occasion.

pity, by the angle thought it was her and since this lady has a dark beauty appearance as well, but then again, she was married in 1903, and possibly if attended the ball, her costume would have been far more bejeweled and fitting to her rank.
