DESCRIPTION

This is the first volume of the letters of Marie Alexandrovna, Grand Duchess of Russia, Duchess of Edinburgh and her daughter, Princess Marie of Edinburgh, Crown Princess of Romania written between 1879-1900. The Grand Duchess Marie Alexandrovna’s life and character has been imprinted by her upbringing at the Russian imperial court, as the daughter of Tsar Alexander II, in a grandiose and yet level-headed milieu that in a great measure personified her father’s way of life and vision of the world. Her personality was thus a distinctive mix of dominant behaviour and imperial outlook, tempered by an astute, realistic perception of the world.

The Duchess of Edinburgh was a diligent and constant letterwriter. She was also outspoken, humorous and a keen observer. Her letters to her daughter Marie, future Queen of Romania, have been transcribed and edited by Romanian historian Diana Mandache. As an ectra bonus, many letters from daughter to mother have also survived and are included in this unique documentation of a life and era long since gone.
