I have recently started my Masters and one of the classes is about Russian history. One of the requirements of the class is to write a paper on an interesting persona and I immediatelly thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to write about Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich.

Can I ask for recommended literature, please? I already own "Gilded Prism", I also have a Russian book on the Konstantinovich family (but since I can read Russian slowly and need a dictionary beside me I prefer English pblication as of now) there are some diary entries published in "A Lifelong Passion" and I believe some mention of KR is included in Pavlovsk by Suzanne Massie. Can anyone point me to the right direction in finding more resources on KR himself?

Tatiana Konstantinovna Escaping Russia
« Reply #283 on: May 05, 2018, 05:01:30 PM »
So this has been bugging me for a really long time. I know there's a topic completely on the Konstantinovichi but I felt this was specific enough to warrant a new topic.
I've heard different accounts on what happened to Tatiana Konstantinovna and her children. For example in most accounts (such as wikipedia and other websites that I'll need to track down again) it says that Tatiana Konstantinovna escaped Russia with her uncle's aide-de-camp and her young children. It says that she remarried and then that she reunited wit her mother, brother, sister, and children. I'm unsure what to think since it seems they left Russia together but somehow separated, and it seems unlikely she would separate with her young children. I'm also confused how she escaped as her sister and mother traveled to Sweden by offer of Victoria of Sweden. And yet the source only mentions Tatiana's children and not Tatiana K herself. I read somewhere Tatiana K fled to Rumania and then Switzerland, but I'm unsure of that as it still wouldn't explain her separating from her children or why she wouldn't go with her mother, sister, brother, and apparently her two children. I've also read Teymuraz, Tatiana's son, fleeign to Switzerland and then Yugoslavia, which makes little sense as to how then he escaped via Sweden and why Tatiana K is not reported to have gone to Yugoslavia. There is no report I've found of Natalia, save pictures of her and her mother with Mavra in 1921, what looks to be a little after (around 1927), and a picture of her, Teymuraz, and Tatiana K in 1930. This all makes it more confusing.
     Since I've heard multiple variations I wanted to ask if anyone knew where she went after fleeing Russia (her being Tatiana Konstantinovna) before being with her mother, sister, and brother in Brussels in 1921 (that much is evident since there's photographic evidence), and whether or not she separated with her children.

According to a Russian Orthodox site devoted to members of the Imperial Family and their relationships to the Church:
Aide-de-camp Alexander Korochenzov serving to the Grand Duke Dmitri Konstantinovich, helped Tatiana and her young children to escape from Russia. They were fortunate enough to flee to Switzerland. Tatiana decided to marry Alexander Korochenzov, who saved her and her children’s life in fact.

   In October 1921, they married in Geneva. Not quite three months later, however, Tatiana became a widow for the second time when Alexander died in Lausanne… Tatiana raised her children alone, and tried hard to give them good education granting independence.
