The Elenas of the Romanov family: Elena Vladimirovna Grand Duchess Elena Vladimirovna of Russia: 17th January 1882 – 13th March 1957; was the only daughter and youngest child of Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich of Russia and Duchess Marie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. Her husband was Prince Nicholas of Greece and Denmark and they were both first cousins of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. She had three daughters: Olga, Elizabeth, and Marina, and no suns.  When the revolution struck Russia turnmoil was also apparent in Greece. Elena and her family packed their bags and moved to France as to escape the violence.

Elena eventually moved back to Greece and would stay there for the rest of her life, outliving her husband who died of a heart attack in 1938.

And following on from my previous post about James VI of Scotland/I of England, here is a recently arrived new book. . . “Daughters of the Winter Queen: Four Remarkable Sisters, the Crown of Bohemia and the Enduring Legacy of Mary, Queen of Scots” by Nancy Goldstone. . . About the book... . . “Elizabeth Stuart's marriage to a German count far below her rank was arranged with the understanding that her father, James I of England, would help his new son-in-law achieve the crown of Bohemia. The terrible betrayal of this promise would ruin 'the Winter Queen', as Elizabeth would forever be known, imperil the lives of those she loved and launch a war that would last thirty years. Forced into exile, the Winter Queen found refuge for her growing family in Holland, where the glorious art and culture of the Dutch Golden Age formed the backdrop to her daughters' education. The eldest, Princess Elizabeth, counted the philosopher René Descartes as her closest friend. Louisa, whose lively manner would provoke heartache and scandal, was a gifted artist. Henrietta Maria, the beauty of the family, would achieve the dynastic ambition of marrying into royalty, although at great cost. But it was the youngest, Sophia, a heroine in the tradition of Jane Austen, with a ready wit and strength of character, who would fulfil the promise of her great-grandmother Mary, Queen of Scots, a legacy which endures to this day.” . . Elizabeth was the daughter of King James VI of Scotland/I of England, the granddaughter of Mary, Queen of Scots and great-great-great-granddaughter of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York. . . In 1714, her grandson became King George I of Great Britain and Ireland. The British Royal Family are directly descended from her. . . The line goes; . . Elizabeth of Bohemia = Sophia, Electress of Hanover = George I = George II = Frederick, Prince of Wales = George III = Prince Edward, Duke of Kent = Queen Victoria = Edward VII = George V = George VI = Elizabeth II. . .
