But all the same, I wish we could have more knowledge about these women just to  know WHO they REALLY were.

As far as I am aware Larrissa Tudor was neither a liar or attention seeker, indeed all her actions indicated the complete opposite. She made no claims during her lifetime and all the speculation as to her identity came about after her death.

Ahhh, okay! Yes, I would have liked more knowledge about Larissa's life, certainly interests me!

Problem is that there is virtually no information about her early life, a common occurrence back then.

I agree totally with you! Not only that she didn't make any claim but even her husband didn't make any claim in her name after Larissa's death, as I see he never wanted to speak about his wife or her identity after she died. I see that they wished to go unnoticed. The claim appeared really recently -long time after Larissa's death- (early 1990's) thanks to Occleshaw and his really imaginative book. :-/

I've always wondered why about this hermetic attitude of her husband, -I repeat, I don't believe she was Tatiana- but this makes the story even more mysterious, as well as that the little information that we know about her doesn't match (like birth date).

I wonder who she was then, I guess we'll never know.  As I said, there are no records of her birth.

Agreed with Tim, looks like we'll never know who this mysterious Larissa REALLY was...

Better to say, when was she really born. I mean, in her marriage certificate says that she was 24 years old in 1923 (August 16th) but in her grave says that Larissa was 28 years old at the moment of her death in 1926 (July 28th). So 1898 or 1899? Her personal information doesn't match in these documents, and I wonder how likely is that she really gave her real age in any of them. If it is hard to know  about her birth year is much harder to know for certain about Larissa's family or origin.

Sadly... I tend to agree with Jen about that we'll never know who was this mysterious woman :-(

UNLESS someone manages to stumble across something about her and it gets published, but that is very unlikely. Ahhh well...

The records are likely lost forever.

Personally I don't believe that there are much more documents about Larissa besides the few ones that we know -and still exist-. Who knows? Perhaps I'm wrong :-/

Well, you honestly never know....things/documents turn up out of the blue sometimes and get published and new information is found.
