It was brought to my attention that the photograph (left), which I originally included in my post about Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna was actually altered in Photoshop.  In my haste to get the post completed, I didn’t notice that the picture, which I’d seen before in print and online, had been cropped and that Olga’s face had been replaced with her sister, Maria’s, face.

I am sorry for any inconvenience and I am sorry if anyone feels misled.  It was an honest, though silly, mistake.  Unfortunately, in today’s world of faked photos and made-up facts on the internet, I should have been more careful.

I located the original photograph and fixed it in my post — here you can see the two side-by-side.
