Olga Alexandrovna Romanov
Birth: Jun. 14, 1882
Saint Petersburg
Saint Petersburg Federal City, Russian Federation
Death: Nov. 24, 1960
Toronto
Ontario, Canada

Russian Royalty. Born in Alexandria Palace, Peterhof, Russia, she was the youngest child of Czar Alexander III and Maria Fyodorovna, formerly Princess Dagmar of Denmark. At 19 Olga's marriage was arranged to Prince Peter of Oldenburg, but it ended in divorce. During World War I, she worked as a nurse on the Russian front and in November 1916, married Captain Nikolai Kulikovsky with whom she would have two sons, Tikhon and Guri. After the 1917 Revolution, she and her husband fled Russia and lived in Denmark until 1948. Following World War II, Stalin's propaganda machine declared that Grand Duchess Olga had conspired with Germany against Russia during the war. In 1948, with threats against her life, she and her husband left Denmark, moving to Canada where they spent the rest of their lives. Olga played the violin and painted. She produced over 2,000 paintings in her life. Works by Grand Duchess Olga are in the collections of HM Queen Elizabeth II, HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, HM King Harald of Norway, the Ballerup Museum, Denmark, and private collections in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Olga never lived with any delusions of grandeur or dreams of a Romanov return to power. When her husband passed away in 1958, she moved to a small house in Toronto where she died in near poverty. She is interred next to her husband. The funeral for the last Grand Duchess of Russia was attended by many Russian immigrants to Canada who arranged a guard of honor. (bio by: Iola)
