Marie Louise de Monterey was born on the 6th of January 1900; the daughter of an illegitimate union between an English Lord and a Russian peasant girl whilst on vacation to recover from bad health in the Black Sea. When Anyuska was found to be pregnant she was banished from her village. She had sent a letter to Lord Monterey who agreed to send her enough money so that she might make a journey to Paris. When he arrived in Paris he found Anyushka had grown frail from the journey and that her confinement had taken its toll upon her. He did not love her but he felt sincere compassion for her plight and for his part in the affair.
