Scope and Content Note

The papers of Kseniia Aleksandrovna were deposited in the Hoover Institution by her family in 1980, under the supervision of her son the late Vasili Romanoff, who served as honorary curator of the Hoover Institution Archives Imperial Russian Collection.
Of particular interest are her diaries, covering the period from January 1916 to March 1919, the day before she left the Crimea for England. Also significant is the correspondence between her and her brother, Emperor Nicholas II, and between him and their mother, Empress Mariia Feodorovna. Those original diaries and letters, in Boxes 12-13, may be viewed under supervision only, but use copies are available in Boxes 6-8.
Other diaries of note are those of Mariia Feodorovna (in Box 9) and of Kseniia's brother, Grand Duke Mikhail Aleksandrovich (in Box 11), as well as a diary presumed to have been kept for the crown prince Aleksei by his French and English tutors (in Box 8).
The bulk of the collection relates to Mariia Feodorovna, consisting of extensive correspondence with her daughter Kseniia (Boxes 1-6) and with others (Boxes 8-9), and of condolence letters upon her death in 1928 (Boxes 9-10).
The increment consists mainly of correspondence with family members in the United States and Europe, and various royal figures from the United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, and Yugoslavia. Correspondence includes handwritten (mostly unidentified) letters on political, social, religious, educational, and economic conditions in Russia. The increment also contains a number of remarkable prints depicting members of the royal family.
