Very interesting, so she obviously personally knew Alexei, and indeed she would have been of equal rank to associate with him.

I dont think its true. Maybe not entirely true. I mean, wouldnt her visits be named in the various books about the Romanovs??!! Any actual photographs of them together??
I dont think so.

The Dolgoruckys were a family from the ancient line of Rurik, and one of the elite families of the Russian nobility. However, it is doubtful she could have married him under the existing laws of the Romanov Dynasty of the time. These laws still in force today, would have made this marriage unlikely. But she could have known him, and played with him, that is possible. But without further research, it is hard to say the extent of their association. So I would not make assumptions, but I woudn't rule anything out. I have never heard of this before, and it was carefully screened who played with the heir.

It seems that most of his playmates were sons of servants and close friends....occasionally with young relatives.

She could have been his playmate, but what you said about his playmates in general being is true.

I don't know why I didn't think of this before, but presumably Soskia's father was the Prince Dolgorouki that accompanied the family to Tobolsk and went with Nicholas to Ekaterinberg.

Consul Preston says that Prince Dologorouki  left his belongings with him (Preston) at Ekaterinberg and was returned to Tobolsk by the Bolsheviks and confined to prison where he was either killed or died.

Oh, yes, Prince Dolgoruky is mentioned with a photograph as one of the survivors of the revolution, I think, actually.  :-/
I am not in posession of the book right now, but it is old, written around 1973.  :-X

From what I have heard Prince Dolgorucky was killed. He could have been the father of this woman, but there were many Dolgorucky princes.It would certainly be interesting if he was the father of this woman.

I don't have that book, but I have heard that it is good, and it is interesting that it has her in it-what does it say about her?, or can you post the photo? I suppose most everybody else has that book. ;)

I can't scan it right now, but the caption says:

[glb]Prince Vasili with Princess Sofie Dolgorucky in one of the ship's life boats. Sofie's uncle, Prince Sergei Dolgorucky, was master of the Household to the Dowager Tsaritsa and also escaped on "Marlborough" with his mother and daughter. In later years Sofie would write a book, "Sofka, the Autobiography of a Princess".[/glb]
