A. von Oldenburg summer cottage
« on: January 12, 2006, 02:21:48 AM »
Alexsander von Oldenburg and Yevgenia Maximilianova Romanovskaya bought this house in 1915. They escaped there the revolution. They owned it until 1929.

It is said that there is still lot of furniture and other items left used by Oldenbugs.

I suppose this couple were the parents of Prince Peter of Oldenburg who was the first husband of Nicholas II's younger sister Olga (divorced 1916).Prince Alexander was granted the right to "Imperial Highness" in 1914.

It's situated in the south-eastern part of Finland, in Ruokolahti parish, which is quite near the Imatra town (Imatra is famous for it's rapids, and the Russian imperial family visited it quite many times in 1800's and in the beginning of 1900's.) Ruokolahti and Imatra are near the Finnish-Russian border. You can read more about it if you follow Antti's link, it's in english.

Could anyone perhaps post photos of the Prince and Princess Oldenburg as they would have looked at the time of the Revolution? From what I read, Prince Alexander of Oldenburg was with Tsar Nicholas at the front during WWI.

Thanks!

Alexander I became at the beginning of the 19th century grand duc du duché de Finlande(I prefer to write into french in view of the fact I do not know how to write it into englich,like this I can not make mistakes).

The russian throne in Finland

Mon cher Vassili,

Les mots anglais sont: Grand Duke of the Grand Duchy of Finland  et enthronement.

Avec amitié,

David

That’s right. We still have some relics from czars emporer time. For example our presidential palace was made for czar in 19th century: here’s a link to the homepage. There is some info what is pretty interesting. http://www.president.fi/netcomm/news/ShowArticle.asp?intNWSAID=34091&LAN=EN

Those pictures were interesting: here’s one of our first diet (is it diet?) in Porvoo:

here you can see Aleksander I and his throne.

We have maintained a statue about czar Aleksander II. Here’s a picture of it:



and next picture is from 1899 when folk flovered the statue for in memory of the *released czar Aleksander II* who was very freeful for our country and this flovering was ment to be a protest for Nicholas II because of his oppression and trying to limit Finland’s freedom.


I hope this brought you some new info. :)

Many thanks for the fascinating information and photos! I am glad Alexander II continues to be honored; when it comes to "the big picture" I consider him to have been a remarkable and conscientious leader.
