Artz, Martine - Een keizerlijke vluchtelinge
Marina Petrovna Romanova (1892-1981) was a relative of the last Russian tsar . She grew up at the Russian court and settled in France in 1919 , fleeing the revolutionary violence . After a long and eventful lifeshe died as a penniless artist in a small village in the Provence, France. Her last years were spent in self-imposed solitude - her husband was deceased and she had no children and had lost contact with her imperial family. The story of Princess Marina's life is part of the family saga of the Romanovs, which is part of the whole Russian history. The fate of this illustrious and tragic dynasty is back in the spotlight. The legacy of Princess Marina has more than mere curiosity value because its story is part of the history of the ' first wave ' Russian emigrants. This book contains the biography of this highly original but totally forgotten Russian princess, based on previously unpublished letters and photographs from her estate. Hardback, 240 pages, 25 illustrations, 15x22 cm, only available in the Dutch language.
