Tatiana's birth
« on: July 02, 2010, 10:25:46 AM »
Hi! I'd like to aks about Tatiana's birth. Where exactly did it happen - Tsarskoe Selo or Peterhof? Xenia Alexandrovna writes 29 May in her diary: "From the station we went straight to the farm." That was when she and Maria Feodorovna were goig to see Nicholas, Alexandra and new-born Tatiana. I have never quite understood what is that "farm" mentioned in Romanovs' letters and diaries. And, by the way, on what weekday was Tatiana born?

Wikipeida entry for Tatiana.  That might help.

The farm was the family nickname for Peterhof, I believe.
I'm back on my bull****.

Ok, thank you. I'm sorry if I'm asking stupid questions. I've always supposed it was in Peterhof, but then, I wasn't sure, because there's an extract from Nicholas' diary from May 15 and they're still in Tsarskoe Selo. I just started to wonder if they had moved from a place to another, the birth being so close...Was it a Lower dacha where Tatiana was born (and Maria, Anastasia and Alexei too?) Do you know when Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia were christened?

Do you mean Old Style or New Style?

June 11, 1897 was a Friday. Unless that doesn't "kick in" until after 1900, in which case Tatiana was born on a Thursday. The whole different dates thing really makes my head spin!

Yes, I believe so.
Olga's Christening...November 14, old style
Tatiana...June 8, OS
Maria...July 9, OS
Anastasia...can't find
Aleksey...Sept 3, OS

Thank you so much for the dates!

I'm not sure, to be honest...That extract is on Alexander Palace Time Machine (Diaries of Nicholas II). I'm sorry if I'm being annoying, but there's still another thing. Xenia Alexandrovna wrote in her diary 3 June 1897: "At about 5 o'clock Sandroshka and I went to the Alexander Palace. Nicky wasn't back from his walk, so I went in to Alix, who was feeding the baby." This extract is from Livadia.Org, so I think it's rather reliable. This is just disturbing me, because I'm writing about them and trying to find facts. She writes about a "farm" in 29 May and about "Alexander Palace" in 3 June. Is that possible they really were in Peterhof when Tatiana was born and went back to Tsarskoe Selo so soon, I don't know. Maybe it's just a mistake...

Thank you for those images, Nena!!!
You are filled with anguish
For the suffering of others
And no one's grief
Has ever passed you by
You are relentless
Only towards yourself
Forever cold and pitiless
But only if you could look upon
Your Own sadness From a distance
Oh, how you would pity yourself
How sadly you would we
