That last picture is actually of Anastasia goofing around. I think there's a copy of it in the book Anastasia's Album which is a sweet little book. There's another great one of her in there, wearing false teeth and crossing her eyes! I don't have a way of posting it at the moment, but maybe someone else knows which one I'm talking about?

I think that is indeed Alexandra.

I am also surprised that Tatiana would be smoking right next to her mother, as I thought that Alexandra didn't like her daughters doing so. However, she knew they did, since Nicholas himself taught them to smoke. But if she is smoking, I guess either Alexandra didn't really mind or Tatiana is just playing around and pretending to be smoking.


It is Alexandra,  in one of my books there's a photo of Alix stepping ashore from the little boat, wearing the same dress and hat with a big smile on her face.
Occasionally Alix lighted up a cigarette herself, tho' not in public.

Here are Tatiana, Lieutenant Kodionov, Maria and Olga on the tennis courts at Livadia, in 1913. Olga looks like she's had enough sport for one day.

Maria, 1913.

Maybe it`s just my imagination but I think Maria has her right foot out of the shoe.
I can`t see very well because it seems to be an X mark over that area. Maybe someone made the X mark to retouch the photo.
What do you think?

That photograph is from 1914, and Maria does indeed have her shoe off.

Yes, agreed, Marie_Pavolovna, that is Tatiana rather than Anastasia.

And the photo of Marie with her shoe off--I'll have to take your word for it since the photo is rather dark on my computer--reminds me of the sequence at the beginning of Roman Holiday . . . the reverse-Cinderella, played by Audrey Hepburn, temporarily loosing her slipper!

The photo of Anastasia pulling a face as she appears to curtsey has never surprised me; she loved to do that type of thing, especially in contrast to her sisters, who had each stood straight and sober at that site for their individual photos. But the photo of Alexei with what appears to be a mattress over his head always has baffled me. Anybody have any ideas re: what's going on?

Oh I just love this picture, especially.  Maria being the good little Grand Duchess, and Anastasia making that face!  Classic....   Is that Dr. Botkin that's giving them a ride?    :-/

Anastasia wearing false teeth
Doesn't it seem like one of her sisters is laying down behind her?

Some of Alexeis`s pranks:

Once in a party he dran the champagne from the bottom of the cups and he started to actuate silly. He said to his parents "I can hear my tummy rumbling".

Once in a dinner with important people and Alexei was like 5 he went under the table and his parents told him to came up again, and he did, but then one of the women seated at the table screamed, because Alexei had put a strawberry in his shoe while she had it taken off and he was under the table.

Little Alexei - he was a pranker!

Yep, and that would be Maria (or so I have read).
