Grand Duchess Olga (1882-1960), Romanovs of Russia - Watercolor

The Grand Duchess was the youngest sister of ill-fated Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. Her entire life was marred by relentless adversity that plunged her from unimaginable wealth to poverty. Petite, fragile, self-effacing, she had a heart full of compassion and was deeply religious. Miraculously, she managed to survive the intrigue and decline of the last imperial reign, communist persecution and the long years of exile in Denmark and Canada, where she died in Toronto on November 24, 1960 at the age of 78.
