Excuse me,what was that article above?"Great-granddaughter of Nicolas II expressed...."!!?She wished....!

So much for accuracy,as we all know the late Tsars children never married,let alone had any children,but that doesn't seem to bother to some circles.What a laugh!

I think that's a translation error.

It is indeed an error - nowehere in the article is it said that she is Nicholas' granddaughter.

Dear boyar,
According to the Imperial House's website, the Grand Duchess was indeed in New York, although in early September.

In August 2007 I was in Los Angeles and I visited Universal. There I saw a woman speaking Russian who looked just like Grand Duchess Maria. She was there with other Russian people and they would talk between each other. I was so sure that this was Grand Duchess Maria. She was the same hight and build the same way. She wore cloths just like Grand Duchess Maria and had diamond jewerly.

I think that Vladimir Putin is busy inventing a new form of monarchy and that any chance of Russia becoming a constitutional monarchy any time soon is doubtful.
By the way it is a bit of a stretch of the imagination for the Grand Duchess to use HIH, firstly as Russia has devolved from an empire into a country. Secondly, she is not a ruler of any country. There is no problem with Princess, Grand Duchess or even Great Princess (which I think Grand Duchess translates into). As for whether the Tsar and his family were the victims of political repression, it is hard to think of what else their abysmal treatment could be classed as. There is still a lot of Communist era revisionism alive and well in Russia.

I love the look of revulsion on the Grand Duke's face and the look of bemused condescension on the face of the relative standing behind the Grand Duke. Considering it was Yeltsin who had the Ipatieff house demolished, there probably isn't a lot of love lost between the Romanovs and Yeltsin.

After reading through all seven pages on this discussion and through my own research, I would most certainly agree that GD Maria is indeed the rightful Head of the Imperial House of Romanov. No doubt about that, whatever anyone's personal "opinions" and bias maybe.
