For anyone interested in the Romanovs, or anybody who enjoyed The Last Grand Duchess: Her Imperial Highness Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna, 1 June 1882-24 November 1960 or Olga Romanov: Russia's Last Grand Duchess this is really a must have book. These are the reminiscences of Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna published in conjunction with her silver wedding anniversary in Denmark in 1942 . These stories were originally published in Denmark as magazine articles, which have in recent years been reprinted in books there. However, this is not a straight translation of that work but instead is a translation from Olga's original notes, which were written in a combination of Danish and English.
This book is not simply the same stories you read in the memoirs produced later in life, but many new ones you won't see in other books about Olga. The memoirs are also interspaced with letters from Olga stored in the Russian archives and the translated memoirs of Countess Zinaide Mengden . Pictures are interspaced throughout the book, some of them quite rare images of Olga and at the end is a very handy family tree showing all of Olga's descendants. As the title says, this is 25 chapters, none of the terribly long, but nevertheless this is a good read and a book anyone interested in Olga should buy that will undoubtedly be highly sought after by royalty buffs in years to come - currently this book can be found at amazon uk.
