Anna Fedorovna Tyutcheva, Aksakova by her husband. She wrote an interesting book of memoirs.

We had discussed this once...And as always you regretted that the memoirs were in Russian.

No idea...but a highly "idealised" painting. QV noticed Marie's lack of beauty, but admired her spirit and of course her money.

Yes...Although she was jealous of Marie's fine jewelry.

She was Colonel-in-Chief of the 14th Yamburg Lancers Regiment, whose uniform, as Eric points out, she wears in the photograph.  It was a Uhlan regiment.

Thanks CountessKate. I think two of Nicholas II's daughters also have regiments (Marie & Anastasia were too young).

Maria was Colonel-in-Chief of the 5th Kazansky Dragoons and Anastasia was Colonel-in-Chief of the 148th Kaspiisky Infantry Regiment (to which she was appointed on her 14th birthday), though both were too young to take part in the ceremonial parades which Olga and Tatiana attended.
