Grand Duchesses Maria and Anastasia Romanova of Russia

The two youngest daughters of the last Russian Emperor, famously known in the family as the Little Pair, Maria and Anastasia were born in June 1899 and 1901 respectively. Maria, the elder sister, was often dominated by her more lively and vivacious younger sister. Whenever someone had suffered a prank orchestrated by Anastasia, Maria always had to apologize for the actions of her rowdy sister. During World War I, Maria and Anastasia visited wounded soldiers at a private hospital in the grounds of Tsarskoe Selo. The teenager girls, too young to become Red Cross nurses like their mother and elder sisters, played checker games and billiards in an attempt to uplift the soldier’s spirits. Along with their parents, siblings, and loyal servants, the two girls were imprisoned in 1917 and brutally murdered in 1918 just because their last name happened to be intensely hated by many.
