She belongs to us!
« on: February 27, 2008, 12:06:37 PM »
I have just read, that when Olga was born Nicolas reported to have said: "I am glad the child is a girl; had it been a boy he would have belonged to the people; being a girl, she belongs to us."
I have never heard that before. Anone knows from where it comes from?

If so, she didn´t mean Olga, right :)

Yeah....definitely Marie Antoinette to her daughter the Madame Royale.

If I do remember correctly she whispered tenderly to the infant: "You may not be what was expected, but you are nonetheless dearer to me! A boy would belong to France, but you, my Marie-Thérèse, shall belong to me!"

Just a slight mix up, no harm done!
"...I am in Tatiana's room...Olga and Tatiana are here. I am sitting and digging in my nose with my left hand... Olga wanted to slap me but I ran away from her swinish hand..."

Well, that was not my mistake :) .

I read it in an OLD newspaper article. Guess the reporter wanted to be romantic.

Oh, well then that clears up things somewhat. It personally discerns me when people do things like that, whatever though.

I believe Marie said: "A son would have belonged to the state, but you shall be mine, and have all my care; you shall share my happiness and soften my sorrows."

Yes, I believe that was so, I remember reading that in a biography of Marie Antoinette. I believe she also said: "You shall be mine, you shall have my undivided care, you will share all my happinesses and you will alleviate my sufferings."
