Anastasia Nicholaievna / Re: Illnesses of Grand Duchess Anastasia

Interesting to know that those photos of Alexandra dressed similarly to a nurse were taken when she was nursing Anastasia through her illness.

The jaw actually hangs open by itself. It takes muscle to keep your mouth shut. That's why your mouth often hangs open while you sleep! (It's also why the jaw is wired shut before the viewing of a body.)

I don't have any information about Maria's surgery for sure, but I would expect if anyone would have access to anesthesia for it, the tsar's family would.

We've talked before about how big OTMA's feet were, this is just further proof!  ;)

$400? They don't offer anywhere near enough to justify asking for that much every year. I barely used them anymore anyway, so that's that I guess.

I can't believe how much Olga already looked like the grown version of herself there. She has the same exact face.

Looks like it came from the Russian state archives site. This is from there too:

I know the photos you're referring to. It's hard to say exactly what happened unless someone can link it with a diary entry or a letter!

Tripping up the stairs is something I always have to laugh at when I see someone do (as long as no one is injured) and yep, no exception here!

I'm terrible at translating things as I don't speak Russian, but reading it over he talked about how they encountered a Battleship in Sevastopol named Breslau. The Empress Maria (the ship Demenkov was on) fired first but the battleship was far enough away that it escaped. Later that same day they were attacked by a submarine and they attacked it back (I think?).

Then he says he met with the former commander of his regiment named General Komarov. He uses the word "treated" (at least that's how it was translated) so maybe Komarov had been hospitalized?

I'd love to see if someone is comfortable enough to actually try to translate it word for word.
