Were the Leuchtenberg-Romanowsky family descendents of Eugène-Rose de Beauharnais, the stepson of Napoleon I Bonaparte, who married a Baverian princes?Beauharnais was made Duke of Leuchtenberg by his father in law king Maximilian I Joseph of Baviera.

In munich there is a palais Leuchtenberg in Ludwigstraße. A beautiful, big palace which today houses the ministry of finance.

In the war time correspondence of Nicky and Alix, Daria is mentioned 2 or 3 times. For what I understand of this lady, is that she was very pushing,  begging and very demanding.

She was a Grand Dame,who did what she wanted and didn't mind what other people thought about that.

All living today Leuchtenbergs are descendants of Duke Nikolai (1843-91), eldest son of GDss MN and Duke Max of Leuchtenberg.

Here's the genealogy:

GDss Maria Nikolayevna in 1858 by Denis Raffet.

And her morganatic second spouse Count Stroganov, by the same artist, in 1858



The last sketch was presented to the Russian Museum in St-Petersburg by the owners who had bought it on Christies.
