Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna never once received her son Grand Duke Michael's morganatic wife, Madame Brassova and her son, Count George Brassov.

In her first years of marriage, the new Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna continued to be a Lutheran. However, over time, certainly with the example of her husband helping, she became convinced of the beauty and authenticity of the Orthodox faith. In 1891 she decided to formally convert and join the Russian Orthodox Church.

I've often wondered, if the marriage would've lasted had Michael survived the revolution, considering Natasha had already two failed marriages.


Still those morganatic wives were, though not fully accepted in the family, brave enough to try to save their husbands. Olga Paley wanted to save GD Paul, Natasha drove to Moscow to personally speak to Lenin (of course she wasn't let through).

At least Prince Gabriels later wife Antonina Nesterovskaya was successful with the help of Maxim Gorky.

I think Maria Feodorovna could've at least received her. I think that Michael meant a lot to both of them.

Theotokos Fyodorovskaya is the patron icon of the Imperial Romanov family. Michael I of Russia received a copy of the icon from his mother. He carried it to Moscow when he went there to rule.

Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna of Russia became Queen Consort of Wurttemberg. Queen Olga was no doubt pleased when Vera married Prince Wilhelm Eugen of Wurttemberg in 1874 and thus stayed in Stuttgart.

Wasnít Tashkent an important military station?  Was GD NK permanently billeted there?

Did Grand Duke Constantine Pavlovich (1779-1831) officially have the title of Tsarevich of Russia?
