In front of a priest is GD Wladimir Kirillovitch, by his side is GD Dmitriy Pavlovitch.

I've often seen the woman at the center of this photo identified as Isa Buxhoeveden, though it's never looked like her to me. Today on tumblr I saw her identified as Princess Alice of Battenburg. Which is correct?

I think she is Olga Byutsova.

That's not him. Actually I even don't see any resemblance.

I may be a bit slow on the uptake here, but who exactly is Olga Byutsova?

She was a maid of honor to the empress. More about her here.

I have often wondered about this lady .  Clearly not Isa  as she's imo far more beautiful  ( sorry Isa!)
There is a photo of this lady looking over Olga's shoulder as Olga N. is  looking up while drawing ...a close up of both , She is striking

To me she looks a lot like Princess Zinaida Nikolaievna Yussupova in that photo (above by Sarushka).  But I know it’s not her.  Perhaps a noble woman as not many commoners would be around the Imperial Family. She is defiantly a Lady-in-waiting or Maid of Honor as we all can see however I don't even know whom she is.

I think Sarushka's link on reply 457 is pretty definitive, especially Nicola de Valeron's contribution.

I'm puzzled over this photo. GDss Olga,her husband Prince Petr and... ??? The caption says a young woman is a Princess of Oldenburg, sister of Prince Petr. As we know Petr was the only child of his parents. May be she is his cousin?




They are very informal and relaxed!

Just to answer my own question and surprise some experts :)

That's not Daria of Leuchtenberg who was never close to Olga or Petr. That's a dear childhood friend of GDss Olga and a cousin of Prince Petr, Sophie von Daehn, nee Sheremeteva, daughter of Countess Elena Stroganova and thus a granddaughter of GDss Maria Nikolayevna.

Sophie was a friend of Olga and some other Romanovs, more info on her could be found here:

http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=6444.30

Recently I've done a research on Sophie's mother and Sophie itself, so came to the discovery who's that woman with Olga and Petr.
