Perhaps I can contribute something here.

According to Marina, Gleb said the Empress said, "With the Botkins one always speaks German."

However, Nicholas took Dr. Botkin with him on his state visit to England in part for his fluency in English.

One truly has to admire Dr. Botkin. He was a man of great ability and collosal duty right to the very end. He will surely have been rewarded for his good work. He was truly a good samaritan.

I am very surprised to read learn this and fail to understand why that pronouncement was made. Which "Empress" allegedly declared that?

Between Sergei and his son Evgenii, both Botkins served three Russian Emperors as Court physicians.

Does someone have a photo of Tatiana Botkina Melnik, when she was a teen?

And,I have also read either she sent a cap she knitted to Tatiana Nikolaievna Romanov or that Tatiana Nikolaievna made one and sent it to Tatiana Botkina Melnik? True or not?

That's the first time I've seen a pic of Tatiana Botkin. She sort of reminds me of the way Garbo looked in "Ninotchka"!

According to Tatiana's book - Aux Temps des Tsars - they were alone. Their mother had divorced her father years before, when they were young children. She left her husband to marry the children's tutor. They stayed for a while in Siberia, then Tatiana married Melnik (her father had asked her to do so), and then they went to Paris. Eventually Gleb came to USA.

 Tatiana Botkin ,and Gleb for that matter, looks amazingly like her father.

Such a shame they tagged onto Anna Anderson and the way the treated the Imperial Family post the revolution. To say they are now disliked might be an understatement.

I´m affraid they were just not willing to admit their world, the world as they had known, vanished, and they focused on Anna Anderson as to a connection with the past...
