Hi Sveta,

I read on your LJ page (excellent job, by the way) that Maria Nikolaevna received her regiment in 1837; do you know if there is a reason why Nicholas I's other daughters were not given regiments at the same time?  

I think Nicholas I 'granted' the regiments to his daughters in the case of their marriage. Olga N. in 1846, Maria N. in 1837 but it's strange that Alexandra did not receive any regiment in 1843...

That sounds accurate, but you're right--it is strange that Alexandra didn't receive a regiment.  Anyway, thank you very much for your help :)

Close-up of Alexandra and Olga Nikolaevna from the family portrait by Vernet, which was done for the twenty-fifth wedding anniversary of Nicholas I and Alexandra Feodorovna.
