Olga Alexandrovna

Remembering Grandduchess Olga Alexandrovna, youngest daughter of Emperor Alexander III and Empress Maria Feodorovna. Here seen as a young girl, arriving in Copenhagen by steamship, sitting “in front” – with her back turned wearing a wonderful strawhat and polka dot dress – of the royal carriage with her mother, Empress Maria Feodorovna and her maternal grandmother, the danish Queen Louise. This wonderfully detailed photograph was taken by photography pioneer Elfelt in 1890. Olga Alexandrovna was born June 13th 1882.
