Interesting thread, although I can't honestly say I'm a fan of Miechen. To me, she comes off like another "middle school mean girl", Alice Roosevelt Longworth, whose era overlapped with Miechen's. Alice reportedly was thrilled when President William McKinnley was shot, enabling her father Theodore Roosevelt to become President of the United States, and picked mercilessly on her unattractive cousin Eleanor. Give me Alix any day!

probably not entirely new, but I thought the comparison between these two images of Maria dressed for a fancy dress ball in 1883 was interesting...

True, but the extent of the boredom is spectacular.

Yes. Ellen became great friends with Ducky, while both had problems with the difficult Miechen.

I read that a portion of the proceeds from the auction of the long lost Faberge items found in the two pillows in the Swedish legation in Stockholm were to be used by G.D. Maria Pavlovna (the Elder)'s  heirs to have a biography of Miechen written ----this was not long after the auction in December of 2009 -----does anyone know if there is any accuracy to this, and, if so, any idea where the project may stand.

Really ? I haven't heard about this before. Were the Faberge items part of Miechen's property ?

That is correct. In Jewels of The Romanovs by Stefano Papi it is reported that the heirs donated some of the profits from the sale  to restoring the castle in Schwerin where Grand Duchess Vladimir was born as well as to fund her first official biography. This was only in late 2009 so perhaps research is still going on! I would love to know for sure.
Grief is the price we pay for love.

I wonder whether this biography is going to be published in English.
