Interesting facts. Thanks. 14 is quite young to be appointed, I wonder if Marie Coburg was appointed at a similar tender age ?

Thanks for info. I wonder if Marie Coburg was made head of reigments at such an age too. She too was proud of her Russian heritage.

did she remain their chef even after her marriage? by the way, if grand duchesses married foreign princes did they have to leave thei position of a chef? they were to live abroad and couldn`t see their regiments very often.

She did remain.

The Grand Duchesses didn't leave the positions becouse of the marriage, there was no special rule of abandoning the position. Some of them were the chiefs till their death.

As I understand it, Grand Dukes and Grand Duchesses were appointed Colonels-in-chief at birth, but only started wearing uniform and attending parades etc in that role a good deal later.

Incidentally, Prussian princes were put under the tutelage of military governors at seven and commissioned into the 1st Foot Guards at ten.

Grand Dukes, yes, were appointed at birth, but Grand Duchesses not. They "received" their regiment later.

Maybe to select a suitable for them ? So many babies died in infancy.
