Dear Lanie, could you please post this other photo of Malama with Olga and Tatiana? I am not sure I know it. Thank you!

Yes, I understand... but on this pic, he looks like GD Dmitri. Was it "always", or just here?

Hey, finally one of the GD's showing some taste in guys! :D ;D ::) lol lol lol

Paul Voronov who liked Olga (and she liked him) was far from a looker. :P Not worthy enough for her beauty. Olga was way too good for him.  This Dmitri dude is much MUCH more handsome!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Paul Voronov was tall, slender, and distinguished, the latter applying to both his looks and his service to his employers. From his photographs, it appears that he did appear more mature than his years, but given the fact that Olga was "her father's daughter" and a thoughtful person with greater emotional maturity than many her age, it stands to reason that she would be drawn to someone who had tremendous inner qualities in addition to physical attractiveness.

Dmitri Malama was far more in the image of what would now be termed a "hottie," but I am not entirely convinced that he was the "Mitya" Olga later wrote about in her diary.  Perhaps.

Also some people who may be genuinly good looking aren't necessarily photogenic.

I don't think Dmitri Malama was Olga's Mitya. Bob, do you remember?

There is this famous picture of Tatiana putting a cast on the leg of a soldier, with two doctors looking on (can't post it, no scanner). The soldier on the picture looks a lot like Dmitri Malama (the picture Lanie posted previously). So I'm wondering if there is any chance that the guy whose leg was being cast was also DM. That DM appears in a wheelchair indicates that there was something wrong with his leg too. Just coincidence?

Peter de Malama recently wrote about his cousin's romance with Tatiana.  The article "The Romanovs - the Forgotten Romance" was published in the December 2004 issue of Royalty Digest.


Would you be willing to scan the article Marlene, it does sound like quite the read  :)

P.s Thank you Speedycat for the picture!  :-*

Please scan that article! This so interesting. It is nice to know that Tatiana who was always rather cold and reserved had some sort of romantic interest and that it was this guy, who seems so interesting.

I would like to cite a passage of the memories of I. Stepanov, a wounded who was in the same room as Malama in the lazaret.  Part in my poor english, part in russian, when I can not translating.

"Malama was young, had blond hair. Before the war, he became famous when won the first price for a course of 100 verstes (stoverstnom probege) although he was the youngest officer. He shows himself as very couragous at the first battle and was quickly wounded (byl tiajelo ranen). His conscience, his fair relation to his duty and in particular his regiment was surprisingly high. He though only about "duty" and "responsibility". He was decorate by the Empress, who gave him the Georgievskoe oruje, but felt tourment because his camarades were fighing when he spent good time in Tsarskoe Selo. He had only the conscience of his duty. He loved the Empress very much. [...] Malama [and others] had been page at the Court and they were abble to talk interesting  stories for the Grand-Duchesses . Most of the time, the GD went out from the "pereviazochnoi" (sorry, do not know the english word) before their mother. They visited all people and then had a sit in our room and were waiting for their Mother. Tatiana Nikolaevna was always sitting near Malama [...]"
I hope it was interesting, and help us to know more about Malama.
