I can’t help but notice the few uncanny similarities between Russian Emperors Nicholas II’s daughters and Paul I’s four eldest daughters. The eldest daughters of both Emperors had musical talents, spoke a several languages, and learned quite easily. They were the most thoughtful of the sisters and the most religious. The second daughters were both considered to be the most beautiful of all their sisters and also shared a special bond to their elder sister. They were both sensitive to anything beautiful.
The third daughters, sharing the same given name, were considered to be the most simple and ordinary of all but most skilled in art and painting. They were both called “the Angel” for their selfless nature and strong desire to help others. Unlike their elder sisters, the two Maria’s were uninterested in fashion and was somewhat a tomboy (though Anastasia was the true tomboy). The fourth daughters were both very lively and vivacious. They had fiery personalities. They both had a close bond to their brothers, who were both heirs to the throne.
