Years ago I read a bio of G.D. Marie Adelaide. I was interested in her because in reading about the Grand Duchess Olga Nicolaevna it was mentioned that Olga felt an affinity for her and was concerned when Lux was overrun by the Kaiser's army. Marie-Adelaide was about a year older than the GD Olga N and became the hereditary ruler of Lux shortly before the beginning of the Great War(1914). I'm a bit hazy after 20 years. I 'll get the book and refresh myself. The title is:  Marie Adelaide, grand duchess of Luxemburg published in 1932. Author is Edith O'Shaughnessy. I remember the book as being somewhat sentimental but full of facts. It has a 2 page bibliography according the the library info.I think GD Olga felt close to her because of some similiarity in their situation -- oldest in a family of girls, devout, etc.

I had never read that before about GD Olga! That's very interesting.GD Olga and GD Marie Adelaide both seemed to be independent minded(about who to marry for instance, GD Olga said no to Carol of Romania, and said she would only marry a Russian, GD Marie Adelaide turned down German princes).Both ended up dying at young ages (22 and 29) when they weren't as wanted by their countries anymore.One big difference was GD Marie Adelaide was the heir, and GD Olga was not..
