Grand Duchess of Russia Elena Pavlovna (1796)


Russian Grand Duchess by birth, and Hereditary Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg by marriage. She was a daughter of Grand Duke, later Tsar Paul I of Russia and his second wife Sophie Dorothea of Württemberg. After marrying the son and heir of the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin she ceased to use her Russian title.

As a girl, Elena was educated privately at home, her first years' education being supervised by her paternal grandmother, the formidable Catherine II of Russia.

On 23 October 1799 Elena Pavlovna and Hereditary Prince Friedrich Ludwig of Mecklenburg-Schwerin were married at the palace of Gatchina. Elena and Friedrich Ludwig had two children.

In September 1803, Elena Pavlovna fell gravely ill and died suddenly on 24 September.
