The Romanovs at Contrexeville – Exhibition

The city hall of Contrexeville, France, is hosting an exhibition to commemorate the many visits of the Vladimirovich branch of the Russian Imperial Family.

Grand Duchess Marie Pavlovna (née Mecklenburg-Schwerin) was particularly fond of the resort town and spent long periods at Contrexeville, where she also died soon after reaching Western Europe in 1920, after a harrowing escape from Bolshevik Russia.

Descendants of the Grand Duchess have been invited  by the Mayor of Contrexeville to attend the exhibition's inauguration.
