Ceclava Czapska (Cécile Czapska) (Bucharest 2 January 1899 – 1 December 1970) was a Romanov impostor who claimed to be the Grand Duchess Maria, daughter of Tsar Nicholas II, the last autocratic ruler of Imperial Russia, and his wife Tsarina Alexandra.
She was the daughter of Boleslaw Czapska and Raja Ludmilla Tchapline. On 20 January 1919, she and Prince Nicolas Dolgoruky, called 'di Fonz,' were married in Romania. They had two daughters, Olga-Béata (born 1927), mother of Alexis Brimeyer; and Julia-Yolande (born 1937).
The remains off all the Romanovs have been found and identified via DNA testing disproving her claim.
