I found some images of Tatiana's tomb before it was "opened" by the bolsheviks. I must say it was a very beautiful piece.






Does anyone know if the statue on the grave is the same one currently in the Moika palace, or if it's a replica?

what happened when her grave was opened?

The tomb had been opened because they had believed the Yusupov's had buried riches with their dead. (Same reason they opened the tomb of Nicholas, Zenaida's son.) According to witness, the bolsheviks were angry at the lack of jewels and gold in the coffin. Sadly, they threw the bodies into the river which runs through the estate. They were never recovered.

If they found a baby's body together with Tatiana then could be that she died in childbirth then the family did all do hide this scandal and someone from the family ripped the pages of her last diaries who could perhaps tell who was this "Paul" and much more about Tatiana mysterious death!

There is alot of mystery surrounding Tatiana's death. While officially she died of typhoid, several villagers around the estate swore the princess had drowned. If Tatiana had gotten invovled with a 'Paul' and become pregnant the shame and possible scandal could have been motivation for her to commit sucide. Naturally this is something the family would have wanted to hide and be a reason behind the missing pages from Tatiana's diary. As well as the mystery surrounding Tatiana, and lack of information/photos about her.

Elizabeth Krasnykh who wrote a very long and detailed biography on Felix Yusupov stated she had spoken with another historian who was currenly researching the Yusupov's archives to find out more information about Tatiana. My guess would be this historian should he ever publish his findings is our best bet in finding out more. The Yusupov archives in Arkhangelskoie and in Saint Petersburg and maybe Xenia Sfiris (Felix's grandaughter) are the only three places where any information about Tatiana may be found.  However if the family destroyed all of Tatiana's papers to protect her and their good name, its very possible we may never know the real truth surrounding the death of this young princess.

I have always thought the mysterious baby might be her brother Boris.....it is not too farfetched to think that the long dead baby may have never properly been buried and it was decided to bury him with the younger sister he had never known....of course he could have been buried with his mother when she had died.

It is very possible that it was her brother Boris.

If it had been Boris, wouldn't they have marked near the grave that Boris was also buried there?? Perhaps it was an intimate detail known only to the family.

Original tomb of Princess Tatiana after her death in 1888.


Shortly after Tatiana's death, her family commissioned Mark Matveyevich Antokolsk to make a tombstone for Tatiana's grave. The result was 'Angel'.





The beautiful headstone remained on the grave, even after it was opened by the Bolshevik's during the revolution. It wasn't until the 1930's that the headstone was moved in order to preserve the work of art. It's rumored to be in the tea house of the estate.
