St. Elizabeth the New-Martyr

Born a Princess of Hesse-Darmstadt, she married the Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich, uncle of Nicholas II, who married her sister Alexandra.

Fr. Serfes, as always, has a good WEBPAGE in her honor.

Not familiar with this one. So she was royalty in Russia, became a nun and was martyred? What's her story?

I got distracted and didn't edit the information into the post until just now. She was a remarkable lady.
