Well, almost in my backyard is the last residence of this Russian imperial descendant that I thought might be of interest to readers.

Thank you for the link to the article, gerry. Enjoyed reading about someone so part of all that grandeur and tragedy. Interesting end.

Thank you for the information, I did read the article and was so surprised that this is what happened to her later in life, and yes it was in your backyard. I saved the article in my History File Folder which is growing leaps and bounds, need to make separate folders now for all this articles that I have...lololo.
What I found interesting was that she was so innocent of the ways of the world, that nobody in her family had the forethought to teach her about money, life, just daily living. How different it is today when royals have children, they had better get careers and jobs, for they know it might not last forever like those royals back then who thought it would last forever.
