Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna of Russia (Russian: Мария Павловна; 16 February 1786 – 23 June 1859) was the third daughter of Paul I of Russia and Sophie Dorothea of Württemberg. She was the Grand Duchess of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach by her marriage to Charles Frederick, Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach. Born on 16 February 1786 in Saint Petersburg to the son of Catherine the Great of Russia and his wife - the daughter of Friedrich II Eugen, Duke of Württemberg - Maria Pavlovna was raised at her fathers lavish palaces at Pavlovsk and at the nearby Gatchina. As a child, she was not considered pretty: her features were disfigured as a result of a pioneering application of the Smallpox vaccine. Her grandmother, Catherine II of Russia, admired her precocious talent as a pianist but declared that she would have been better to have been born a boy. Her music instructor was Giuseppe Sarti, a composer. In 1796 her grandmother died making her father the new Emperor of Russia as Paul I.
