Grand Duchess Maria Nikolayevna, and her descendants
« on: May 30, 2004, 07:07:20 AM »
Does anyone know anything about this woman, Daria Yevgenevna? She was the grand daughter of Maria Nikolaevna, who was the daughter of Nikolai I Pavlovich. The geneaology site I was on said she returned to Russia in 1930 and was executed in Leningrad.  ???

According to the author Belyakova (Ref. provided above) Dariya Leuchtenberg was arrested on 10 September 1937, and then interrogated by the NKVD in October. She was found guilty on all charges, and no doubt under duress, signed the documents presented to her admitting the following:

1. ... that she was the wife of Markezetti, an arrested Gestapo member,
2. ... she was connected with an intelligence-terrorist group of German political emigrants in Leningrad,
3. ... she was aware of the preparation of a terrorist act on A. Zhdanov (Communist Party leader),
4. ... she was recruited by a monarchist-terrorist organization,
5. ... her appartment was used for secret meetings,
6. ... her appartment was visited by six foreign counter-revolutionary organizations.

She was shot on November 5, 1937.

Her husband, who was shot a few months later, in January, 1938, had his case overturned posthumously in 1975, for lack of evidence. It was also found that criminal proceedings against him were falsified.

On May 11, 1989, Dariya was no longer classed as an "enemy of the people". However there is no consideration as to whether she was also found to have had 'evidence' falsified against her as well.

The Bolsheviks needed no reason to execute her or the millions of people they murdered during their unfortunate tenure as Russia's rulers. She was murdered because of her ancestry, not because of anything she did.

Hi! This may have already been posted, but I'd like to know a little bit more about the Leuchtenbergs, which were Romanov through a Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaievna, daughter of the Iron Tsar. I know the Leuchtenbergs were related to the Wittelsbachs, the Bonapartes/Beauharnais, etc but would like to know who they were, what were their lives like, what did they do and what happened to them after the revolution(I gather none of them died at the ahnds of the Bolsheviks)? Thanks in advance :)

One did. On an identification thread I posted the following. I'll try to flesh it out more later unless anyone knows more of the story.

Quote
Could it be his cousin on his mother's side Daria Beauharnais? She was the daughter of his mother's brother, Eugene, Duke von Leuchtenberg, Prince Romanowsky. She was born in 1870 and married Prince Leon Kotchoubey in 1893. They divorced in 1911 and she returned to Russia. She remarried in 1911 Waldemar von Gravenitz who died in 1916. She herself was executed in Leningrad in 1937.



Quote

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 information is very confusing  ??? I know nothing about the Leuchtenbergs at all. Does anyone have any clearer information on them? I'm completely lost.  :-[

Very interesting family!

Some of them.
Prince Nikolay Maximilianovich and his morganatic spouse Nadejda Akinfieva (Annenkova). Their romance was very passionate.
