    One of the first “selfie” was made by the Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of  Russia, the youngest daughter of Tsar Nicholas II, in 1914. She used the “Kodak Brownie” camera. In a note to his father, on 28 October, that Anastasia has made to the picture, she wrote: “I did this photo looking at myself in the mirror. It wasn’t just because my hands were shaking.”

October 1839: I'm not entirely sure that it is true that this is the first "selfie," but I do know this is Robert Cornelius and he was a photography pioneer. It's also billed as one of the first photos of a human being. I think that is amazing.
