Grand-Princess Maria Nicholaevna, the third daughter, was one month old when her uncle Tsarevich Georgy Alexandrovich died. As Tsar Nicholas II still had no male heirs, the expectation was that he would confirm his youngest brother Grand-Prince Michael Alexandrovich as the new Tsarevich.

Out of policy and because of superstition the Tsar refused to confirm his youngest brother. Later, when it became clear that the (then 6/7 years old) Tsesarevich Alexej Nicholaevich was extremely vulnerable, in 1911/1912 the Tsar considered to confirm his youngest brother as Tsarevich, but then Grand-Prince Michael Alexandrovich married a twice-divorced non-royal lady without the Tsar's approval and by doing so he threw himself out of the Imperial House.

Floppy didn't exactly throw himself out of the House,but he and Natalia "transferred themselves" to comfortable England.With all my might I never could understand why of all people he had to have Natalia.Probably in essence because he was a bit of a spoiled brat with not to much sense of responsibility....Not untill it was too late.

Tsar Nicolas II was against the wedding of Grand Duke Cyril with the divorcee Princess Melitta of Hesse.
Without this wedding no Grand Duchess Maria ...

In 1908 the Tsar fully restored his cousin Kyrill and his cousine Victoria Melita. Since then they were known as Their Imperial Highnesses Grand-Prince Kyrill Vladimirovich and Grand-Princess Victoria Feodorovna.
