Hi, from a new member and Tatiana fan!
« on: December 02, 2007, 01:57:36 PM »
Hi,  I don't know is I am posting this in the right section, but anyway...

I am a big fan of Grand Duchess Tatiana and have some questions about her, if someone could help me with them?


I read somewhere that the Grand Duchesses smoked, did they?

Did Tatiana play piano well?

I also read that all the Grand Duchesses each had something wrong with them(illness)?

Hey.  :) Welcome to the forum.

yes, the grand duchesses did smoke. (i'm pretty sure Tatiana did)

She played piano better than Olga from what i heard

I haven't heard that Tatiana had any chronic illnesses, but she was possibly a carrier of hemophilia.

601,1359,Ts.S., Apr. 15, 1915,pp.84-85 "...Well, we've finished the lesson. I am writing to you again and am smoking the cigarette which you gave to me at the time of Lent and I did not have time to smoke it. I am enjoying it now."

601,1359,Ts.S., June 11 1915,p.91
"...I'm sitting in the garden opposite the Children's Island and enjoying myself. Ortino is lying at my feet and sleeping. We've just returned from the Grand Palace where we went to see the wounded... How silly I was not to take a cigarette with me. So, those damned mosquitoes are litrally eating me."

These are letters that Tatiana wrote to her father, she states that she did smoke cigarettes. She also used them to keep the insects away since there was no bug repelant spray back then. Welcome to the forum  I am_Tatianochka Enjoy!!!

True. in Tobolsk, they put on plays for fun. They played the piano, and they might have played the balalaika a little.
