The Imperial family with Greek relatives (around 1912)

Here you can see Princess Olga and Elizabeth again (along with their little sister Marina), as well as their mother, Elena Vladimirovna, sitting next to Nicholas. The other relatives are Elena’s brothers, her mother Maria Pavlovna the Elder, and Ducky, who was once married to the Empress’ brother Ernest but when this picture was taken was married to Elena’s brother Kyrill.  Awkward.

Anastasia, Maria, Alexei and two of their Romanian cousins.

I’ve never seen this one before! 

It’s actually Greek cousins—Princess Elizabeth (the shorter one) and Princess Olga, daughters of Prince Nicholas of Greece and elder sisters of Princess Marina, later Duchess of Kent.  Their mother was Grand Duchess Elena Vladimirovna.

Excuse me while I melt into a puddle!

Awesome scans and COMPLETELY new photos! (I had seen Maria and Tatiana’s before, but not at this quality)

Please note I purposely do not post photos on here that have the “for the AP forum” watermark on them, but this is an exception. They were on this blog.

BRB, screaming.

OMFG TATIANA’S PICTURE I THINK I’M GOING TO CRY OF BEAUTY

Hurray! At last!
