Star-Crossed Lovers

Today is the date of birth (o.s.) of Mathilde Kschessinska, 1872. She lived to be 99 years old.

    1. Sooo.... so that's a heck of a lot longer than her lover and his family lived.

      This is WWI stuff, so you are probably in the dark on this.

  2. That's clever. :) I like it. Concise.

  3. There was a young lass called Mathilde,
    Whose canoodling with czars almost killed her.
    She'd settle for grand-dukes
    With Romanov good-looks,
    And the seed of the tsars quite fulfilled her.
