Grand Duchess Elizabeth (1864–1918) was a Russian duchess that became a orthodox abbess after her husband was assassinated. She sold all her possessions and founded the Convent of Saints Martha and Mary. She was brutally murdered by the Bolsheviks along with her family on July 18th, 1918 (today 105 years ago).
