Maria Nikolaevna

Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna Romanov II (also known as simply Maria or by her nickname Marie or by Little Marie to distinguish her from her grandmother, Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna) (born June 26, 1899 in Peterhof Palace, Saint Petersburg, Russia) is the youngest of Anastasia’s three elder sisters from the 1997 Don Bluth animated film Anastasia. She was the third daughter and the middle child of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna. Her murder following the Russian Revolution of 1917 resulted in her canonization as a passion bearer by the Russian Orthodox Church. During her lifetime, Maria, too young to become a Red Cross nurse like her elder sisters during World War I, was patroness of a hospital and instead visited wounded soldiers. Throughout her lifetime she was noted for her interest in the lives of the soldiers. The flirtatious Maria had a number of innocent crushes on the young men she met, beginning in early childhood. She hoped to marry and have a large family.

She was an elder sister of Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia, whose escape from the assassination of the imperial family under the influence of Grigori Rasputin was rumored for 10 years until Anastasia was found by two con men named Dimitri Sudayev and Vladimir Vasilovich, who brought her to Paris, France and helped her regain her memories and revealed to both her and the world that she was the Grand Duchess Anastasia.
