review The Last Grand Duchess Her Imperial Highness Grand DuchessOlga Alexandrovna 1 June 1882 24November 1960

When she died in exile in 1960 Olga Alexandrovna was the last Grand Duchess of Russia the favorite sister of Czar Nicholas II who was executed with his wife and five children during the Revolution Born in splendor difficult to imagine today she endured a lifetime of relentless tragedy with courage and exceptional powers of adjustmentThe Last Grand Duchess is a val. I really enjoyed this little book even though parts of it have become outdated now Olga really came across well and her experiences shone through the author did a good job of not clouding her testimony and really letting her words take center stage The siblings of the last tsar are rarely discussed particularly Olga and Xenia and this was one of the only bios I ve been able to find on Olga One feels for all that she had to go through and how her faith and courage kept her going through a loveless marriage and years of exile Especially an interesting read now after the fall of the Soviet Union Although some of the smaller details ran contrary to what I ve read in other books I thoroughly enjoyed it as a personal memoir and a witness to history type story
