GD Elizaveta Mavrikievna with her daughter Tatiana and granddaughter Natalia, ca. 1920.


Not 1920. That's around 1926-1927.

Natalia is certainly far too tall for an eight-year-old!

That's from an old magazine of 1915 year.

Apologies if this has already been posted.

Link to a photograph of Princess Natalia "Natasha" Bagration-Mukhransky (daughter of Princess Tatiana Konstantinovna and granddaughter of KR)  

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Photographic-Princess-Bagration-Mary-Evans/dp/B004KHVCZ6

Princess Natasha was engaged to Lt. The Hon. Christopher Furness (eldest son of the 1st Viscount Furness) before his heroic death in France in 1940.  He was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions.  There is a photograph of him at the Esoteric Curiosa blog.  He was apparently considered to be quite a good catch (money and looks).  His father's second wife was the semi-(in)famous Thelma, Viscountess Furness.

Natasha was after Lady Johnston...Her husband was Governor of Aden and Ambassador to Jordan...

She was also "first love" of her cousin Prince Tomislav of Yugoslavia!

True.  According to The Times, King Peter and Queen Alexandra attended her wedding to C. H. Johnston in 1944, so she must have maintained some degree of friendship with the Yugoslavian royals.

'She was also "first love" of her cousin Prince Tomislav of Yugoslavia!'

Hm, I wonder, for the simple reason that Tatiana was 14 years older than Tomislav, and he was still a boy when she married in 1944. Maybe not in a romantic fashion.

According to Wikipedia, Tatiana's husband translated the works of Pushkin into English - obviously he picked up fluent Russian from her!

Is there any information about Tatiana's brother Teymuraz?
