Thank you, that's beautiful. What a difference the colour makes!

I fell in love with the Romanov girls (and then the whole of Russian history!) after reading Helen Rappaport's book about the four sisters, and probably most of you know the documentary. Imho it's completely unnecessary to drag out again the name of Diana, Princess of Wales, for a comparison of the most photographed princesses etc - but I guess they had to bait the viewers a bit ;-)

I wish oh how I wish Peter Jackson would take all the royal home movies and give them the treatment he gave to the WWI material (which was amazing).

The footage showing OTMAA running happily up and down the deck makes one feel such melancholy. Poor kids.

In Nicholas and Alexandra, Robert K. Massie wrote: In running his family and empire, Nicholas looked to his father and the Russian past. Nicholas preferred to be Russian down to the smallest details of personal life.

She certainly was lovely and well-connected. It will never cease to amaze me, why her parents refused to let her find a marriage partner.
She had been 21, her elder sister Olga 23 and her younger sister Maria 19, all of them at a perfect  age (at that time) to get married or at least engaged. Even Anastasia had been almost 17.
Married or at least engaged into a foreign monarchy would have saved their lives.

Tatiana had in fact a suitor Dimitri Yakovlevich Malama. He was a commoner, but obviously accepted by N and A. He later joined the White Army and was killed in action in 1919.

But I know what you mean. The Tsar's daughters certainly weren't short of candidates. I don't think their parents actively prevented any marriage. They just wanted them to marry for love and be happy.

Olga f. e. turned down the Crownprince of Romania, because she didn't want to leave Russia. Tatiana and the others had surely similar feelings.
