Born in Potchep, Russia, the daughter of Count Constantine Kleinmichel, Olga Woronoff was officially presented at Court to the Dowager Empress Marie and the young Empresses Olga, Tatiana, Marie and Anastasia. There she met her future husband, Paul Woronoff, a Lieutenant Commander in the Imperial Russian Navy.
They married in early 1914. The Tsar and the Empress fulfilled the traditional roles of representing the parents of the married couple. In Upheaval, Olga Woronoff described in detail the frightening period of World War I and subsequent Russian Revolution. Eventually she and her husband, who fought with the White Army, escaped on an English steamer to Constantinople and then on to Paris, where their daughter Tatiana was born.They were joined in Paris by Olga's mother and three sisters. The family later emigrated to the USA and then to Australia. Our father was a bibliophile who collected rare books, letters, and ephemera for more than 60 years.
