Young ladies who were appointed as maids of honor. To the Empress came from the most illustrious families of the Russian Empire. Their fathers served with distinction in either the civil service, the military, or at court. The nomination was thus an honor for her father and her family at large, as much as it was for the young lady. Prior to being appointed as a maid of honor, a young lady's character, and her family and social circle, were carefully scrutinized.
The position afforded a young lady many privileges, the foremost of which was access to the Imperial court. Such access allowed her to form an influential network, which could be beneficial to her future. There were two categories of maids of honor: maids of honor of the suite and maids of honor of the city. The former, who were required to live at the palace, constituted a much smaller group (from one to five during this period), and the latter a much larger group.
