russian princess of my heart and soul

Grand Duchesses Olga, Maria, and Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia dressed as peasants. Contrary to what lies history might have believed, the last Imperial Family of Russia cared about their people, especially peasants. In fact, the last Empress Alexandra Feodorovna (born Princess Alix of Hesse and by Rhine) nurtured a distaste for the Russian aristocracy and considered them aloof. Alexandra believed that the true people of her adopted country were the humble peasants, the heart and soul of Holy Russia.
