i found this picture as " Grand duchess maria Nikolaevna". Any chance that this is really her?

for what it's worth I found this image in a book on photographs from the soviet archives also labelled as Maria Nikolayevna c1840 so there's a very good chance it is her.

Some photos are from a Russian bio on GDss Maria N. The photos of Nadezhda are from the book which tells a story of the romance between her and Duke Nikolay.

More of Nadezhda Akinfieva, spouse of Duke Nikolay







And her husband Duke Nikolay, who as they said was the most talented son of GDss Maria N. His career was ruined after escaping abroad with Nadehzda, and his Uncle Alexander II always regretted about Nikolay. Nikolay itself  was missing Russia all his life abroad but he didn't left Nadezhda and their sons.
