Didn't she -because of her poor health in later years-fall under the influence of Axel Munthe ?

She was indeed under the strong influence of famous Axel Munthe. They said he was a terrific person.

Yes, she did. Axel Munthe was not a nice person, though. Maria Pavlovna, who was married to queen Victoria's second son Wilhelm for some years, detested him.

Yes, it is the same man, Axel Munthe (1857-1949), the son of a pharmacist in a small town named Vimmerby. Staffan Skott, a Swedish author who has written about both the Romanovs and the Bernadottes, states in one of his books that Munthe sexually abused Maria Pavlovna.  >:(

Axel Munthe settled on Capri, where he wrote a best selling book "The story of San Michele".You often see copies cheap in secondhand bookshops....

Didn't Victoria not get on well with her daughter-in-law, Margaret of Connaught, because of the latter's pro-British sympathies in WWI?

That makes me feel bad for Marie Pavlovna. :'(
I'm sure at that time she knew very little about such matters....

Did this man hold a powerful sway over Victoria as well?

I've always wondered--she seems sort of an isolated figure.  She didn't have too much family of her own--only two brothers, one died young, no nieces or nephews.  Her mother was the only sibling of Fritz, so Victoria would have been a first cousin to Fritz and Vicky's girls.  Was she close to them?

There were some photos taken of her and Charly as young women and, I think, also with Wilhelm.

They were very different personalities and the marriage was not very happy, according to the sources.


Apparently it was because he preferred men.

Staffan Scott doesn't state such a thing , he just cite words of Maria's lady-in-waiting.
