I am very glad queen olga is still remembered for her charity work e.g.during franco-prussian war she foundd organization to help wounded soldiers -  Wuerttembergischer Sanitetsverein. in 1921 this orgaization became a member of Red Cross. Nikolauspflege founded in 1856 and named in honour of the Emperor  Nicholas I was to help the blind and to help them adjust to life and acquire some skills that would make their life easier. SHe also founded school for girls Konigin Olga Stift Gymnasium. Olgaschwester was an organization where nurses helped the elderly and the sick. The  list can be continued.

The people of Stuttgart  named one of the streeets of the city in her honour

Unfortunately, information on Queen Olga is scarce. There is of course her book of memories "Golden Dreams of Youth" and "Grand Duchesses" by Eurohistory. Plus some info scattered in different books. Unfortunately. Does anyone know more sources on Queen Olga?

I don't know if you read German or not, but there is a book called K├Ânigin Olga von W├╝rttemberg by Detlef Jena.

No, Dru, I don`t read German. But th name Detlf Jena is familiar to me as I read his research on GD Ekaterina Pavlovna, another Russian queen of Wuerttemberg. This is superb book !!! It is in Russian . May be I`ll check if the book on queen Olga iis available in Russian.
