Grand Duchess Marie. I adore her. "Fat little Bow-Wow" as she was called by her sisters was gorgeous and by all accounts a simple, kind-hearted young woman. She said she wanted to marry a Russian solider so she would never have to leave her beloved homeland.

Alexei: It is said that he knew he would be killed but had hoped that his sisters would be spared. They were all killed in a surprise execution in the night of July 17, 1918 at Impatiev House in Siberia.

Alexei - he resembled the Romanov side of the family says a pinner; I think he is the spitting image of his mother - what's wrong with you people.
