About Maria Nikolaevna Romanov Grand Duchess of Russia

Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna of Russia (Maria Nikolaevna Romanova; Russian: Š’ŠµŠ»ŠøŠŗŠ°Ń¸ ŠŠ½Ń¸Š¶Š½Š° ŠŠ°Ń€ŠøѸ Š¯ŠøŠŗŠ¾Š»Š°ŠµŠ²Š½Š°, June 26 [O.S. June 14] 1899 ā€“ July 17, 1918)

Maria was the third daughter of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, the last sovereign of Imperial Russia, and his wife Alexandra Fyodorovna. Her murder following the Russian Revolution of 1917 resulted in her canonization as a passion bearer by the Russian Orthodox Church.

Died unmarried and without issue.


During her lifetime, Maria, too young to become a Red Cross nurse like her elder sisters during World War I, was patroness of a hospital and instead visited wounded soldiers. Throughout her lifetime she was noted for interest in the lives of the soldiers. The flirtatious Maria had a number of innocent crushes on the young men she met, beginning in early childhood. She hoped to marry and have a large family.

She was an elder sister of the famous Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia, whose alleged escape from the assassination of the imperial family was rumored for nearly 90 years. In the 1990s, it was suggested that Maria might have been the grand duchess whose remains were missing from the Romanov grave that was discovered near Yekaterinburg, Russia and exhumed in 1991. However, further remains were discovered in 2007, and DNA analysis subsequently proved that the entire Imperial family had been murdered in 1918.
