From what I can tell, the date on the bottom left side is her birthday: March 25, 1875 (or April 6, 1875, the calendar difference thing always screws me up) The other one, January 24, may very well be her name day, but I am not entirely sure.
I'm back on my bull****.

Grand Duchess Zenia, sister of Nicholas II, died in a "grace and favour" house at Hampton Court, England. Grace and favour means she was allowed to live there courtesy of the monarch, in this case King George V. Does anyone know where she was buried? She is not in the Royal Burial Ground at Windsor which is predominantly for British royals and she would not be in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle which is reserved for monarchs and their consorts.

Her sister Olga died in Toronto, Canada and photographs of her grave in York Cemetery in Toronto are published, but where is her sister? Incidentally their mother's remains were transferred from Denmark to St Peter and Paul Fortress church in recent years and is identified by a photograph of her on a stand by the grave, next to Alexander III, her husband.

she's buried with her husband (Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich) in France.  I believd its "Roquebrune" France.

Re Posting # 99:   A few years ago, I had the opportunity to study for a goodly bit at very close range (less than 12 inches) the original pastel/watercolor/colored pen of this portrait of the Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich, and was quite impressed with the rendering of the eyes. They actually seemed "wet"!  It is, of course, NOT a miniature and is on paper.  It was done in 1882 at the time of his naval studies.   AP.
