Russian royalty, the third daughter of Czar Nikolai (Nicholas) II and Czarina Alexandra; executed with her entire family by the Bolsheviks in the early hours of 17 July 1918 in Ekaterinburg, Russia.
Though Maria unquestionably died with her family, the exact cause of her death remains a mystery (gunshot? stabbing? struck in the face?).
Her murder at age 19 resulted in her canonization as a passion bearer by the Russian Orthodox Church.
