I did, but there are many here who aren't native speakers of English -- yourself included, I believe.

For the type of relationship they had, yes I do think it's normal. Rodionov's duty was as a companion and an escort. He was responsible for making Tatiana comfortable at social events. If some level of fondness or affection developed between them over the years, that seems reasonable to me, but as far as I know there's no evidence of romantic involvement.

I see.... but did Voronov for example was a companion and an escort of Olga... because i really think she felt in love in him... but he got married and she wrote in her diary God bless him and some sort of things i don't have the letter but you know it.....
My point was that for me it's kind of strange the girls flirted(?) with 20-30 years old men.... in this days they will call such a romance.... you know how....

Voronov was an officer of the Standart. Sablin was officially Olga's cavalier. However, Olga did develop intense crushes on both Sablin and Voronov, which she wrote about in her 1913 diary.

True, but they didn't have many other options. As far as I know, they had virtually no contact with boys or men their own age except perhaps for the soldiers in the lazaret during WWI.

Is this Rodionov with Tatiana? (I don't recognize Rodionov as easily as I recognize Sablin.)

Do you have that one unmarked? I don't think I've seen it before.

I posted it in Rare pictures VII thread. It was taken in 1913.

I am confused...we have one or two Sablins? I only know Nicholai Pavlovich Sablin, the 'leader' of Standart yacht. Thanks for infos of Rodionov.

Rodionov was born in 1886. He had 2 promotions, in 1915 and january 1917.
Nena, there is only one Sabline, Nikolay Pavlovitch. He was indeed Olga's official cavalier.

You are welcome

I will answer you:
Indeed as Matushka said there isonly one Sablin...Nikolay Pavlovitch...According to what i have read Olga was interesting in him... i don't know much about it.....  Mostly i know about Pavel Voronov ( he wasn't very handsome in my opinion)

Thank you all. I don't know why I think of two Sablins. I think there is photo of him carrying Aleksei at Stavka/Mogilev in 1916.

Also, I think Sablin is in these two:


Sorry for my mistakes. Thanks Matushka and Irina.
