Olga Nikolaevna Romanov


Of both her parents, Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna was much closer to her father. Olga idolized her father and wore a necklace with an icon of St. Nicholas on her chest. Though she also loved Alexandra, her relationship with her mother was somewhat strained during her adolescence and early adulthood. Parlor maid Elizaveta Nikolaevna Ersberg told her niece that the Tsar paid closer attention to the children than Alexandra did and Alexandra often was ill with a migraine or quarreled with the servants.
