A thread for the Grand Duchess Elizaveta Mikhailovna, daughter of Mikhail Pavlovich and Charlotte of Wurttemberg. Like her cousin, Alexandra Nikolaievna, she died at an early age. I've always been fascinated with her. I mean, what was she like? Her personality. Any information about her?

The contemporaries said she was a very sensible girl with much imagination and inclination to melancholy. She married almost at the same time as GDss Alexandra N., her cousin, and after learning about Alexandra's death Elizaveta convinced herself that she would die in child-birth as well. And she died in child-birth.

She obviously understood that her health was weak. Alexandra N. was tubercular, that's why she gave a premature birth to a son and died. Elizaveta, if I remember correctly, died of complications of the child-birth.

They said the couple was truly in love, and Adolf was devastated with Elizaveta's death.

adolf,elizaveta`s husband,was devastated by his wife`s death.in fact,thei newly-born girl died,too.adolf decided to build an othodox church after her name.the church was placed on the hill,visible from everywhee in the city, even from the duke`s palace (it reminds me of the chapel on the hill in stuttgat erected in honour of ekaterina pavlovna).





in 1896 nikolay 2 bought the church and a plot of land around it (including the cemetary) so nowadays the church belongs to the Russian Othodox Church.

Princess Elena owned a Palace on Kamenniy Ostrov in St-Petersburg, also she had a right to live in the Oranienbaum palace. Prince Albert had an estate in Germany.
