I was just reading about the early years of the tsarina. Her parents and maternal grandmother were murdered by the Spanish regime in 1936 when she was only 1 years old. Afterwards she and her brother were taken in by various close friends of their parents family members until their respective deaths:

1 - Initially (until May 1937) by their father's close friend, the marquess of Casa Pissaro
2 - Next by their paternal grandmother in France (which was quite a complicated journey due to the war) - Doña Margarita Marta Modet y Almagro, until her death in 1940.
3 - Next by their paternal uncle, Don Juan Gómez-Acebo y Modet, Marquess of Zurgena, and his family until his death.
4 - Finally by another paternal uncle, Don Jaime Gómez-Acebo y Modet, and his wife, Doña Isabel Duque de Estrada y Vereterra, 9th Marchioness of Deleitosa (parents of Luis, later husband of Infanta Pilar).
