The best site for all things about the Grand Duchess Vladimir is to look up Alexander Palace discussion forums" Some people on there have access to diaries and journals of the Imperial family. I read on there about where her nickname came from and I Think not 100 % sure it was from her youthful days in Mecklenburg Schwerrin. I have many great photos of her if you wish to send me a private email I can send them on to you. She is a tremendously interesting lady and deserves a biography.

What a treat! I find her one of the most interesting Romanovs of the later years. Nice that it is written by a Russian author, so the focus is not completely on the British aspects as is so often the case.

It seems that the book has 400 pictures, which makes me wonder if there is a lot of space for the actual biography. It seems that the book has been published by Arturo Beeche / eurohistory.

It is also for sale at van Hoogstraten bookshop:
Korneva, Galina/Cheboksarova, Tatiana - Grand Duchess Marie Pavl, van Hoogstraten Online Shop
I did not find it on eurohistory.com yet.

Grand Duchess Vladimir

She is often referred to as the The Grandest of all Grand Duchesses. Elizabeth Taylor's emerald necklace once belonged to MP.

They say that Kyril inherited the pearls, Boris inherited the emeralds, Andrei inherited the rubies and Elena inherited the diamonds. After the revolution and war and they had no access to money it was vital they had these jewels to sell so they could live. Strangely there are not many photos of her rubies.

Do not feel sorry for the Dancer Mathilde. She was the one who dangled the two Grand Dukes on her hooks. They did not Pass her around as some suggest. She cleverly kept them baited and hooked. I love the little quote when a fellow dancer asked Mathilde what was it like to have Not One but Two Grand Dukes dancing at her feet. Her reply; And what is wrong with that! I have Two Feet!!!!!" After reading Imperial Dancer you will discover this lady was no ones victim.
Mathilde and her son Vova. She never revealed his paternity.
