From memoirs of General Mikhail Dterikhs, "Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna was a typical good Russian girl with a big heart. She impressed those around her with her tenderness & with the charming & kind way she dealt with everyone. She was precise, calm & strikingly simple & natural with everyone." From Paul Gilbert in Royal Russia 9 May 2013.
