After the the rest of the Imperial family arrived in Ekaterinburg; Hendrikova, Schneider, Tatishchev, and Volkov were arrested and Kharitonov, Leonid Sednev, and Trupp were sent to the Imperial family. In "The Fate of the Romanovs", there are eighteen of the suite left on the train. I know this includes Buxhoeveden, Gibbes, Gilliard, Ersberg, Tutelberg, and Tegleva but I can't figure out who the other twelve servants were.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Rita Chitrovo Maid in Honor to the Empress


Wasn't she a friend of Olga N? Or am I confusing her with Rita Khitrovo?

Rita was both a Maid of Honor and a friend of the Grand Duchess Olga. As is the case with a number of Russian names, Rita's last name is spelled several different ways in English language books. Rita did travel to Siberia, but not as a servant; she was attempting to see the family, but was found out and sent back. Rita survived the Revolution and died in the United States in the 1950s.

I was reading through Alexandra's diary and I came upon a passage when the members of their suite were forced to join them in the Governor's Mansion in Tobolsk. Alexandra says that Trina Schneider and her two maids as well as Nastinka Hendrikova and "her old general". The editor's footnote says that this was General Tatishchev, yet in her entry for the next day, Alexandra writes that Prince Dolgoruky, General Tatishchev, and Gibbes took up residence in the mansion that day. I know it's a long shot but does anyone know more about Hendrikova's maid Pauline Mejantz? If she was an older, perhaps stern woman she may have earned the nickname of an "old general".

Thanks!

Additional question-

Did Dr. Botkin accompany the family to Tobolsk or did he travel with his children to meet them there?

Also, Klaudia Bittner seems like an interesting character to me. Why would a school mistress up and leave just to give music lessons in a far off Siberian town? Was this due to her relationship with Col. Kobylinksy?

Thanks!

That's a lot of servants!  How come only a few were executed and why were they killed?  I understand killing the entire IF to prevent any member producing any heirs, but wasn't it a bit much to shoot servants and other retainers, and why just four and not others?
