Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna was the sister of the Empress Alexandra Feodorovna; she married on 3/15 June 1884 Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich, who was assassinated in Moscow in 1905. After his death the Grand Duchess became a nun devoting the rest of her life to deeds of charity. After the Revolution she was arrested and deported to Siberia where she was murdered, dying of suffocation in a mineshaft. She was canonised by the Russian Orthodox Church in 1995.
Johannes Zehngraf (1857-1908), the painter and miniaturist, was born in Copenhagen. He travelled and worked throughout Germany, and occasionally in Russia. He executed for Fabergé the miniatures of three of the Imperial Eggs.
