I know, still it may be hard for Nicolas as a loving and proud father when carol didn´t show any interest in his eldest daughter.

During 1916, Serbian politics Paschic wanted to marry Olga to King Alexander I of Serbia. (in April, preciselly). You are right, Ally.

Why is that Paschic planning to marry her to Alexander I of Serbia? Is it merely for politics?

I´ve heard Alexander of serbia asked for Tatiana´s hand.... Perhaps he just wanted an alliance with Russia and didn´t care too much which one of four Tsar´s daughters would be his wife.

Wouldn't Alexander have proposed to Olga, because she was the oldest and was still unmarried?

Maybe he asked for both of them, maybe he liked Tatiana better....

Remember how Olga wanted to remain a "Russian"? Maybe she didn't want to leave Russia, so he decided that Tatiana was the next "best".

Well, probably - he couldn't ask Maria or Anastasia, they were both too young, and I doubt Nicholas would have allowed any of them to marry him. So, if Olga said she wanted to remain Russian, and, as Ally said, he wanted "alliance with Russia", Tatiana was the one he would have had chances with. :-\

I heard only for Olga. It would be very nice if O.N. be Serbian Queen...people would accept her warmly - he said...For some politics reasons, I suppose, and for people.

I don't think Tatiana will take Alexander's hand if he proposes to her. Of course, she'll marry because of love, not for politics and other's desires.

If any of OTMA would marry for political reasons and duty, it would have been Tatiana.

Yes. After all, she was the "Governess" in the family.

Tatiana was called "The Governess" because she was the most regal and tended to be a bit bossy. Many people said that "You knew you were in the presence of a Grand Duchess when you were with her". She was the one who took her place as Grand Duchess as important, with the usual responsibilities.

And she listened to her Mama most. If she wanted Tatiana to marry Alexander of Serbia, Tatiana would probably have thought something like "If this is for the good of the Empire, and if Mama suggests it, it can't be too bad, can it?" Tatiana just had less of a "fighting" spirit than Olga.
