Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna of Russia
Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna of Russia (Maria Nikolaevna Romanova) (In Russian Великая Княжна Мария Николаевна), also known as Marie or Mashka (June 26, 1899 - July 17, 1918) was the third daughter of Nicholas II of Russia and Alexandra of Hesse. She was a happy go lucky girl and often bossed around by her younger sister Anastasia, interested in children and the families of normal people; she assaulted soldiers when she was imprisoned in Tobolsk and Ekaterinburg with questions of their wives, children, families, homes and other things. She loved children and said to her sisters, "I want to marry a Russian soldier and have twenty children!" She was nineteen when she was executed in Ekaterinburg.
