The website labels the lady in the first picture merely as "freilina" (so it´s lady-in-waitin or maid-of-honor. Not sure which one is the more correct). In the second picture they are supposedly Kyril Vladimirovich and Xenia Alexandrovna.

I always wish I knew who the photographers were in photos, like the beautiful one above.

I devour everything I can find written about OA and the closest I've found to an interview would be Ian Vorres book The Last Grand Duchess.  He had quite a close friendship with her in her lasts years/months.   She seemed to trust him  didn't seem to shy away from answering his questions or talking about sensitive subjects.

I do too, Maria. : ) I think you're right about Ian Vorres' book being the closest thing she did to an interview - that, and the series of articles she wrote for a Danish newspaper in the early 1940s, which later became "25 Chapters Of My Life".

What a sweet photo.  I assume that's one of her grandchildren with her.   When I see these photos of OA in her later years I can't help but wonder what memories she had stored in her mind of her past life.   I wonder if she dreamed dreams of her past life often and whether they were happy or sad dreams.  I know this is silly, but she was a witness to so much grandeur and so much horror, I wish she had left more detailed memoirs.

I have a question in flipping through the book "The Nicky Sunny Letters" Alexandra writes Nicholas on 11 September 1916 (OS) the Olga's sanitary train was bombarded some damaged but no casualties. Is this Olga A? I know she had a hospital train. I don't think it was Olga N since there is know mention of it in her diary. The only other Olga it could be was Queen Olga of Greece would did live in Russia during WW I. Thanks in advance.

In reading Furman's book on all their letters it was Olga A's sanitary train that got bombed.

Apparently Olga's grandson, Leonid Kulikovsky, passed away in Australia

Quote
A great-grandson of Russia’s Tsar Alexander III has died in a small town in outback Australia but his remains were left in a morgue for two months because authorities were unaware of his identity.

Leonid Kulikovsky, 72, a distant relative of both the Queen and Prince Philip, died while walking his dog at a caravan park on September 27 in Katherine, a remote town in the Northern Territory, where he lived alone.

A member of Russia’s exiled Romanov family, he was the son of Guriy, whose mother was Grand Princess Olga, the youngest daughter of Emperor Alexander III, Russia’s penultimate Tsar.

His identity was only discovered after the head of Russia’s Orthodox Church in Australia visited Moscow recently and was told a member of the Romanov family had died in the Northern Territory. The funeral will take place in the territory next Monday following a request by his sister, who lives in Denmark.
