Dowager Empress and other family members are safe
April 15, 1919
It is being reported in Paris that the Dowager Empress of Russia and 19 other members of the Imperial family are now in Constantinople after leaving the Crimea. They arrived in Turkey several days ago. Other members of the family on board the ship include Grand Dukes Nicholas and Peter. Both are married to sisters of Queen Elena of Italy, who has extended an invitation to the two Grand Dukes and their wives to come to Italy. Empress Marie and her family will board a British warship in Malta, where they will learn the British government's decision regarding a new place of residence.
