They were the Princess Dianas of their day—perhaps the most photographed and talked about young royals of the early twentieth century. The four captivating Russian Grand Duchesses—Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia Romanov—were much admired for their happy dispositions, their looks, the clothes they wore, and their privileged lifestyle.
The Romanov Sisters sets out to capture the joy, the insecurities, and the poignancy of those young lives against the backdrop of the dying days of late imperial Russia, World War I, and the Russian Revolution. It is a book that will surprise people, even aficionados, with its aims to present a new and challenging take on the story by drawing extensively on previously unseen or unpublished letters, diaries and archival sources, as well as private collections.
