GRAND DUCHESS ELIZABETH OF RUSSIA: NEW MARTYR OF THE COMMUNIST YOKE
A biography of Queen Victoria`s most celebrated and beautiful granddaughter. This princess of Hesse-Darmstadt married Grand Duke Serge, uncle of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, and shared her adopted country`s tragic fate, her glittering life soon eclipsed by war, the assassination of her husband, and revolution. Having embraced the Orthodox faith, she devoted herself to fulfilling the Great Commandment of Love and established a unique monastic establishment, the Martha-Mary Convent, that combined the contemplative life with outreach to the sick and needy. The sanctity of her life was recognized even before her martyrdom at the hands of the communists.
