Dear Grandduchessella,

I am absolutly agree with your arguments.

Marie Alexandrovna begins to interesed me, because of her gravity and solemnity in all the photographs i saw of her person. I don´t know if it was because of sadness and melancholy or because of her strong caracthere, perhaps a mix of this two?

I think that the destiny of the lives of her children weren´t as brilliant as she expected.

I haven´t see any photograph of her with her grand children, i think that her family life was not very warm.

I belive she died in 1920, does someone knows where??
Was she accompanied by her family??

She died in Switzerland. I don't think anyone was with her.

I don't know of a biography of her . . . but she is mentioned frequently in John van der Kiste's the Romanovs 1818-1959 and, I would imagine, his other book about Affie, but I can't remember the exact name . . .

It's Dearest Affie... by van der Kiste and Bee Jordaan. It's pretty hard to find though.

There is a biography on Maria Alexandrovna in Russian. It's a limited edition - small soft-cover book. One can find it only in the libraries  :(.

Of course  :). Not an exciting one ;), just facts of MA's life. Quite an informative book though.
