Out of print for nearly 20 years, a new edition of A Romanov Diary: The Autobiography of the Grand Duchess Marie Georgievna of Russia will be available in March 2012. A Romanov Diary spans five decades in the history of Imperial Russia and Royal Europe (1884-1934). Through the Grand Duchess Marie's memoirs, we relive life at the Russian Imperial Court and the Royal Courts of Europe. She shares her personal impressions of her royal relations, including tsars, kings, queens and royal cousins in their everyday private lives, as well as their intricate relationships which determined the course of history. She takes readers through imperial and royal palaces, revealing a private world shared only by a select few. She also shares the letters written by her husband, Grand Duke George Mikhailovich, from prison after the Bolshevik revolution of 1917. These letters were smuggled from prison, and detail events up to shortly before her husbands murder in 1919.
On 30 April 1900, Marie was married to Grand Duke George Mikhailovich of Russia. Together, they had two daughters: Princess Nina Georgievna (1901-1974), and Princess Xenia Georgievna (1903-1965).
The Grand Duchess spent most of her life abroad: Russia, England, Italy—and on her return to Greece in 1940, she vowed never again to be driven into exile. During the Second World War, as the German army advanced on Athens and the Royal Family prepared to flee, Grand Duchess George passed away in 1940, at the age of 64.
Prince David Chavchavadze and Alexandra L. Wynkoop, daughter of the late Nancy Leeds Wynkoop, own the copyright to this book. They have authorized Gilbert’s Books (the publishing division of Royal Russia) to publish this new edition.
