I have a question  I wish to know if their were any twins in the Imperial family? Even though I know the joke between Nicholas and Geroge the V.  Thanks :-)

Gretchen:
Yes there was one pair of twins: Grand Duchess Militza Nicholaievna, the wife of Grand Duke Peter Nicholaevich, gave birth to twin daughters Marina and Sofia in March 1898. Sadly only Marina survived as Sofia was too weak. She was laid to rest in Kiev where her paternal grandmother was abbess.

julia.montague:
It was Nadeshda who was Sophias twin sister, not Marina ;)

Gretchen:
Oh right. I must have thought of Marina of Greece, the youngest of the three daughters of Prince & Princess Nicolas of Greece. ::)

rosieposie:
