Oh, thats interesting. I often red that it was a girl and not a boy. I've found many sources about that. Where do you find this about a boy?

Its often said, that Olga and Alexandra were the two beauties of the daughters. Were the sisters very close to each other or to their brothers?

Olga and Alexandra was always close to each other. Alexandra was also the favourite sister of her brother Konstantin,her death was a  great blow for him.

What was Maria's relationship with her sisters like?  Was she close to one in particular?

In childhood Maria was more or less close to her sisters, the family of Nicholas I was a very united one. But Maria was the eldest daughter and thus her somewhat unique position in th family. She also had a difficult character, she was head-strong and eccentric, while her sisters were more gentle and simple. They adored her as the eldest and cleverest one. Maria married in 1839 and became a mother of the large family, so she didn't have enough time to be with her youngest sisters.

Was Maria very close to her first husband and her children?
And what about her second marriage, was that a love marriage? It was "just" a count, wasn't it?

Maria was a very good and loving mother who was able to keep her children united. Her first marriage wasn't a success actually but she found a real happinness in her 2nd one, as Count Stroganov shared her artistic tastes and wasn't ambitiuos. He never boasted that his wife was a Tzar's daughter and knew his place.

Info on GDss Maria N. you can also find at the topic about her and the Leuchtenbergs.
