Grand Duchess Elizabeth, New Martyr of the Communist Yoke

A strikingly beautiful granddaughter of Queen Victoria, Grand Duchess Elizabeth married Grand Duke Serge Alexandrovich, governor of Moscow and uncle to Tsar Nicholas II. Her life in Imperial Russia began in a whirlwind of dazzling social engagements, a world soon eclipsed by war, the assassination of her husband and the gathering storm of revolution. But this darkness and disorder only highlighted the inner beauty of her soul. Consciously adopting the Orthodox Faith, she thoroughly dedicated herself to fulfilling the Great Commandment of Love – nursing the sick, rescuing children from Moscow’s slums, establishing the Martha-Mary Convent of Mercy and thereby attained sanctity even before receiving a martyr’s crown.

This expanded edition of Lubov Millar’s biography, the most extensive date, brings together a wealth of source materials, including never before published letters by the Grand Duchess and more than 160 photographs, to illumine the life of this extraordinary spiritual heroine and the turbulent times in which she lived.
