« on: August 06, 2004, 09:45:08 AM »
Hi, im a new member so just a little about me,

My names Dane Romanov, no relation in fact its my name that got me intrested, im 15, and i plan to become Historian about the Romanov's i know a vast amount of information of which im am proud, i dont have a big head honest lol. ;D

My Fav Romanov is H.I.H The Grand Duchess Tatijana Nicolaievna, i collect photos of the Romanovs and have 100's of loverly photos, BUT, i only have about 3 of Tatijana alone, she was a BEAUTIFUL lady, i was wondering if anyone had any nice photos of her, like official photos not family snaps, i have one of her facing sideways at a table taken to mark the 300 years of rule i have seen one of her facing foreward but it was really bad quality, so PLEASE, has anyone got it???

Here are some of my favorites of Tatiana:











Hair-wise I think Tatiana was the darkest.  I've heard dark auburn to brown, so I'm not too sure.

I agree, Alexa.

Since I've spent the last few days neck-deep in photos of Tanya, I've begun to see glimmers of Nikolai in Tatiana's eyes.  

Like, check out this photo... (it's big, at the moment)

AND...I also see her aunt Olga in that pic.  The eyes again, and ever so slightly, her lips!

Look at this:
Alix's eyes + Nicky's nose = Tatiana!

Nicholas was quite pug-nosed, and i think Olga was who most resembled her father´s nose. Tatiana was not pug-nosed at all. Sadly, almost all the photographs were retouched to look so. In fact, she had a somehow bigger nose, really beautiful and much more aristocratic and characteristic.

Antonio, I'm not agree with you! :-/
Tatiana have a little "retroussé" nose, like her father. Not exactely the same(as Olga), but not a long one like her mother...

Here are non-retouched photos from the The Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and family-photos...


What do others think about it?...

wow thanks for sharing the album with us, Livadia! It's coming along great. I love all those pictures! Great job!  :D
And I agree that Tatiana also had Nicholas' nose. Who's to say that Olga is the only one with a pug nose? LOL Just because she called it "my humble snub" just means hers got the most attention! I think the photos of Nicky's nose and Alix's eyes are a great estimate of where Tati got her looks! Thanks

Hello Abby

It´s me who said that :) . Well, i did not said Olga was the ONLY one who had pug nose, what i said is that she was who MOST resembled her father´s nose. I NEITHER said that Tatiana had a long nose like her mother. Perhaps i did not fully understand the meaning of "pug nose". For me Olga´s and Tatiana´s noses are completely different. Hope you understand how difficult is for me to explain the differences of a nose in this language :). What i mean is that Tatiana had a little bridge, and the tip(?) of her nose was slightly divided by a cleft(?). See Prince Michael of Greece´s album page 169 and 169.

The photo that best ilustrate what i mean is that wonderfully rare photo from 1916 that Lisa posted the 6th of August.(Thanks so much Lisa!!! :) :)

And Lisa. ALL the photographs, even those familiar photographs from the Yale Univ. were more or less retouched. In some of them they would not retouch the face, at least not noticeably, but they would retouch waists, chins or necks, even the shoulders, for example.

Obviously, it's very hard to speak about this sort of things! Each of us have his own vocabulary to describe noses, lips, eyes! Even with my mother, we don't understand each other! ;) BUT I understood what you mean Antonio! :)
It's vey difficult to judge, inspite of very good photos, because we never could see her!... :'( And even the ressemblance is often very tenuous, and inscribable...
