Marie, the name of the popular tea-time biscuit, was inspired by Russia’s Grand Duchess Maria. She was also the daughter of Czar Alexander II of Russia and wife of Alfred, the second son of Queen Victoria and the Duke of Edinburgh. The original biscuit was created for their wedding at an English bakery that made a small round cookie stamped with the duchess’ name in 1874.
