My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!
Come… follow me. We shall become one soul, one blood. Follow me. Death is waiting…

Vera Komissarzhevskaya (1864 – 1910) was one of the most celebrated actresses and theatre managers of the late Russian Empire. She is probably best known today for originating the role of Nina in the ill-fated premiere of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, in 1896.
