Just a remainder after viewing the whole thread : Please, use this topic only for the Paleys - GD Pavel's second family. GDss Maria Pavlovna-younger and her brother GD Dmitriy have their own threads.

A very curious fact about Natalie! I've just started reading "Natalie Paley: Princesse en exil" by Jean Noel Liaut and, in the first pages he talks about a rumor that said that Queen Mary was impress by Natalie's beauty and tried to marry her off with one of her sons!

And a little p.s. Where did the information about Natalie's supposed rape came from? I couldn't find any references to it in Jean-Noel Liaut's book, unless I've missed something... she did become distant and could only maintain friendships with men who looked physically like her brother Vladimir for a while, but does that necessarily mean that she was sexually assaulted? There is quote that explains her state of mind in the time that followed the events of the revolution, when she entered a private school in Switzerland and couldn't mix with everybody else because she felt different:

"At twelve, French girls were still reading Robinson Crusoe and watching Douglas Fairbanks movies. At twelve, I was taking some bread to my father in jail. How could I have been like them? I was mute, I would not play. But I was reading a lot. I had faced death, so close. My father executed, my brother, my cousins, my uncles, executed, all Romanov blood splashed on my adolescence. This gave me a taste for sad things, poetry, the icy and lightning antechamber of death. Soon, my classmates understood me. And respected the way I was, as strange as it have may seemed."

I may be wrong, of course and my French, I'm afraid, is not what you would call impeccable, but where did that came from?

I didn't know there was a book about her, I guess it's never been translated into English. I liked the quote you posted from the book. Her brother of course was a poet, and some of his poems earlier on this thread, aren't so different from the perspective she expressed in that quote when she mentions" sad things, poetry", etc, although he didn't survive the Revolution.

No, unfortunately it has never been translated into English, which made it a lot harder to understand! Both Irina and Natalia were extremely close to their brother, which may have somehow affected their vision of the world (if that makes any sense). Irina had a particulary close relationship with her father and he doted on her because she reminded him of his own mother, Empress Maria Alexandrovna. Prince Felix Youssupov is also quoted in the book saying that Irina Pavlovna reassembled her grandmother physical. But, anyway, the point is that their deaths during the revolution were hard blows for both sisters, but Irina seems to have dealt with it a little better than Natalia.

As for books about the Paleys, I was surprised to know that there are a few of them. I don't recall all the titles and authors right now, but I will post them latter!
