The first few months of 1925 have been eventful so far for scattered Romanov family. In Britain, the former Grand Duchess Olga (now Princess of Wales) christened her second daughter, Princess Louise of Wales. Among the godmothers is Princess Irina, who has quietly remarried following her divorce from Prince Yusupov. Olga's sister Tatiana, now Queen of Lithuania, welcomed her third child, Sofia, after a prolonged and dangerous labor.

In Russia, political tension is mounting, and talks of holding a nationwide referendum on keeping or abolishing the monarchy persist. Others whisper of deposing Nicholas II and placing his son or cousin on the throne. Nicholas is tempted to exert what executive power remains to him to quiet it, but others in the family feel this could backfire and only feed the discontent.

The Tsesarevich is settling into married life with his new wife, the former Elizabeth of Greece. In Belgium, where Anastasia is now crown princess, an official visit from the Italian Royal Family may lead to another royal engagement.

Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna - Sister of Tsar Nicholas II, mother of Princess Irina

Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich - husband of Xenia, brother-in-law of Nicholas II

Prince Andrei Alexandrovich - eldest son of Xenia and Sandro, brother of Irina.

Princess Mary - sister, friend, and confidante to the Prince of Wales
