Elder daughter of the president of Finland, Carl Gustav Mannerheim. In 1892, Mannerheim's godmother, Countess Alfhild Scalon de Coligny, arranged for him to be married to Anastasia Arapova (1872–1936), the orphaned daughter of Major-General Nikolai Arapov, largely for financial reasons. They had two daughters, Anastasie and Sophie (1895–1963); a third child, a son, was stillborn. Mannerheim separated from Anastasia Arapova in 1902 and they were divorced in 1919. Anastasie, after being educated in France, moved to England during the First World War. She converted to Catholicism (she was originally Orthodox unlike her father) and became a Carmelite nun in England.
