Anastasia's on the right, but who's beside her? Olga?
Actually, looks like Olga & Tatiana to me... :-/

I've never seen the photo of Anastasia with the dog. Is that ortino? He was a small black dog, I believe.

Ortino was a small black french bull dog. the one that the Grand Duchess is holding is her last dog i believe, jemmy or jimmy.

Anastasia at Peterof - shame it's dark, I think it would have been a really nice photo.





Hope this one hasn't been posted!

Here's one:

I notice that Tsaritsa Alexandra is wearing a pink dress, but, when Anastasia was born, the Tsaritsa was in mourning for her grandmother, Queen Victoria of England. Why is she not wearing black in the picture?

I believe she could wear mauve or gray in partial mourning.

Could it be possible she just changed for the picture sesion? I mean, wearing "black" in the photos with her little daughter woudn't look very nice, not to mention that it woudn't had been very encouraging for a grown up Anastasia to look at her pics and see her mother "in black" (comparing them to the ones her sisters had ) I'll will probably make her feel ...I don't know...different...

I think she was wearing mauve or grey, in partial mourning as Ritka siad. This was actually acceptable and common. I don't think she changed for the picture, out of black. She wasn't wearing a black dress, although she was not dressed in pink most likely. The dress in the black and white photo is pale, not black.

Mourning clothes followed a strict hierarchy.  The closer the relative, the longer and more 'deep' the mourning period.  Mourning was relaxed after six months when mourning for a more distant relative, such as a grandparent, in Alexandra's case in 1901. After six months, you could stop wearing black and move into greys and mauves. Queen Victoria died in January, and Anastasia was born six months later, in June.  Therefore, Alexandra would have been out of 'deep' mourning, which necessitated only wearing black, by the time this photograph was taken.

Remember, that photograph is coloured and probably does not reflect the true colour of the dress.  In the actual uncoloured photograph it looks closer to a grey or possibly mauve dress, which would fit the lesser mourning period Alexandra would have moved into by the time Anastasia was born.
