Anna Alexsandrovna Vyrubova
Original name: Anna Taneeva
Birth: Jul. 16, 1884
Death: Jul. 20, 1964

A daughter of Aleksandr Taneyev, a noted composer and Director of the Private Imperial Chancellery. Due to family connections in the noble circles, she was introduced at a young age at court and became a lady-in-waiting, best friend and confidante to Tsaritsa Alexandra Fyodorovna. At Aleksandra's urging, Anna married Vyrubov, a participant of the Russo-Japanese War, which strongly affected his personality. When he drank, he often became violent. After a frightful but short period of time together, they separated, and the marriage was thereafter annulled. Vyrubova is often credited with the introduction of Rasputin to the family of Tsar Nicholas II and, along with him, became a focus of growing public hostility. After Nicholas abdicated, Anna was taken by force from the palace and was imprisoned for months in a cell at the Peter and Paul Fortress. She was badly treated and abused by her captors. In the end, charges that she meddled in politics were dismissed. Vyrubova escaped the Bolshevik revolution by fleeing to Finland. As an emigrant, she wrote about the Imperial Family and her life with them in two different books published in the 1920s and 1990s, respectively. (bio by: julia&keld)
