Russian Royalty~The eldest daughter of Prince Paul of Württemberg and Princess Charlotte of Saxe-Hildburghausen, she was named from birth Princess Friederike Charlotte Marie of Württemberg,. She lived in a modest home in Paris with her father and younger sister. It is there she received her education from teachers who thought she was exceptional and highly intelligent. By 1822 she was engaged to marry Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich Romanov of Russia. He was impressed at the beauty and maturity of this 15-year-old girl. As expected, she converted to the Russian Orthodox Church and given the name of Elena (Helen). The couple married on February 20, 1824. Their marriage was a happy one and producing 5 daughters: 2 died as toddlers, 2 died under the age of 21, and only one married with children. At times the Duke was much more interested in his military adventures more than his home life with his family, thus leaving his wife to entertain herself and others. Their home, Mikhailovsky Palace, became the gathering place for the center of social and cultural life of the Northern capital. She was very interested in bringing culture to her new homeland and collected Romanov portraits for display in museums. She supported the founding of the Russian Musical Society. After her husband's death, she did various charity work including the Red Cross, which was newly established in Russia. During the Crimean War, she helped with the training 165 Russian sisters of mercy, who did battle field nursing.
