Queen Victoria's Forgotten Granddaughter: Elisabeth, Grand Duchess of Russia by Dr. Ramona Garcia

Friday, November 15, 2019

QUEEN VICTORIA'S FORGOTTEN GRANDDAUGHTER: ELISABETH, GRAND DUCHESS OF RUSSIA 'Russia I could not wish for any of you,' Queen Victoria once said in reference to her Hessian granddaughters. Elisabeth of Hesse not only defied Queen Victoria by marrying Grand Duke Serge of Russia but also engineered the match of her sister, Alix, to Tsar Nicholas II. Please join us as we explore the life of this forgotten granddaughter who should have heeded her grandmother's warning. A light lunch will be provided by the Library.
