I think they were quite rich, but after the death of GDss Ekaterina Mikhailovna they had to sell Mikhailovski Palace and move into a smaller Palace. I think it was partly due to money issues.

They just moved everyone to its mansion/palace. The siblings together owned the Oranienbaum palace and estate though.

I found it on Wikipedia some time ago, it's by Kramskoy and had the date 1876. Have you posted his other portrait, would love to see it?

I think this Palace in Mecklenburg, Schloss Remplin was used as a summer residence by the couple.

The future Elena Pavlovna, nee Fredeika Charlotta Maria of Wuerttemberg, arived to Russia on 30.09 (12.10) 1823.

Danilevskiy, Alexander I`s aide de camp, wrote about her

She attracted universal attention, and the members of the court talked about her arrival for a month. I didn`t know a single person, among those introduced to her, who were not charmed by her. ..I don`t know what her life in Russia will be like but her arrival put a stop to jealousy and gossiping so comon in our court. Before the return of Alexander I the Wuettenberg princess  lived in Gatchina, and the Empress  invited a few people every day so as to introduce them to her future daughter-in-law. The princess could find a common topic with  everyone e.g. she discussed Russian history with Karamzin or Slavonic languages with Shishkov or  she discussed battles with generals. It was evident that she prepared herself for her new role in Russia and that she wanted to gain universal love at once. When I was observing her I came to the conclusion that the future Empress Catherine II behaved in the same way when she found herself in the court of Empress Elizabeth
