Agreed. It maybe that Olga & Xenia didn't get along.

I have never read about that. They were not super-close (like OTMA for example, which is understandable given age difference) but I have never heard about them not getting along. What is your source, if any?

Olga certainly seems to have been closer to her brothers than to her sister, but I know of nothing to suggest that they didn't get on.

In relation to Olga's relations with Irina, it may simply be that Olga appreciated that Nicholas's daughters, given their mother's desire to isolate them, needed her more.

Yes. I think Irina was closer in mentality with her mother and grandmother. Although I think Olga Nicholievna was close to Irina due to the closeness of their ages.

Indeed. It was Alicky's idea to isolate the girls and prevented them from an early marriage. Olga Alexandrovna was one of those approved by the empress to be near her daughters.

I have some information on the regiment Olga A was honorary Colonel of the 12th Akatisky Hussars from the Osprey book The Russian Civil War (2) the White Armies. Part of this regiment joined the White Volunteer Army later the Armed Forces of South Russia sometime in the 1918 period as part of it's 1st cavalry division. Do to losses it later made part of the General kaledin composite cavalry regiment. It served with the White forces until the final evacuation from the Crimea. When Olga A died there were a number of former officer of this unit who went to her funeral.

I found this wonderful Pinterest page in a google search recently. I'm not on pinterest, but this might be a reason to join! Some of the information is incorrect (and ignore the first photo, which is actually of Olga Nikolaevna!) but there are many wonderful photos, some I've never seen before - such as the one with Xenia with Princess Irina and Prince Andrei, together with Olga, Guri and Tikhon!

Very nice collection of photos. Is that color photo of her as an older lady well known? I don't recall seeing it, although admittedly I've seen far fewer photos of the children of Alexander III as oppose to those of of Nicholas II. It's very good quality especially given the time period, late-1950s I'm guessing? (The one next to it is labeled as having been from mid-1958 and look to have been taken around the same period..
Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right...

Thank you very much for the link! There are definitely some photos which are new to me - I just have a question. Is this picture real or photoshopped?

That's interesting. I hadn't realised it was photoshopped. However, the picture always puzzled me. She looks like she is in a wedding dress, however her first wedding was a formal Romanov wedding in court dress wasn't it? and her second one was in wartime and a very simple well known outfit.

She put a mark on her work but it was, on purpose, cropped. Sad, because its an awesome work!

She did an excellent job. Its a good example of how these Photoshopped images end up circling the net as the real thing.

Indeed...A good job. Wonder if Olga would have liked that dress ? It was too Edwardian for her taste.

But she worn that kind of gown. I can remember when posed with Peter during the engagement session. It cant be more edwardian like that!
