Was she right handed or left handed?
« on: December 28, 2008, 06:45:41 PM »
Does anyone know if Tatiana was right handed or left handed? I've never seen anything that said either way and I was just wondering if anyone knows.

I pretty sure she was right handed. I know that Maria drew with her left hand but that's all the info I can give you.
I'm back on my bull****.

I'm certain that she was right-handed. I've only heard that Maria painted with her left hand, but I don't know if she wrote or did other things with her left hand as well.

I also I am pretty sure that Tatiana was right-handed.  I know that Maria preferred her left hand for painting, but I have seen a picture of her and Anastasia on the Standart where she is holding a pen in her right hand, so maybe she used that hand for writing. 

In all the pictures that I have seen of Tatiana playing tennis she is holding the racket in her right hand.

Tatiana sewing right-handed:



Maria was right-handed also, except when she painted. At least one of the courtiers' memoirs specifically mentions Maria's ambidexterity.

All of the children were right-handed.
