Probably off-topic, what do you mean of 'did the governor'? I read that Shvibzik did the governor on the carpets and Anastasia immediately came up bringing  a shovel.
Does it mean "to poo poo"?

Yes i saw that letter here in AlexanderPalace.org Shvibzik made poo poo on the carpet and Alexandra wasn't very happy.... Then Anastasia was told to clean it immediately or something like that....This was the first and last when he did this to what i know....


Could I see this letter...

I thought it was on the main APTM site, but I can't find it there. It may be in A Lifelong Passion. I'll have a look later tonight.

Can't find it in Lifelong Passion, either...

Am I remembering correctly that it was a letter by Anastasia?

I believe the "governor" is mentioned on the AP's My Name Is Anastasia. If you enter the page called My Sisters and Brother and scroll down to Tatiana, it is mentioned at the end of the paragraph.

This is mentioned in letter extracts on the APTM main site. The year is 1915 and the dog is Shvibzik. Anastasia picks it up with a shovel.

Either I've overlooked it for the third time in a row or something happened to that letter when Bob redesigned the APTM site last year....

And now, is it Shvibzk or Ortino who did the governor? I've also read that one mentioned by Holly.

Why did they give "governor" as a euphemism for poo poo?

Yes, the governess should instead clean the poo poo.
I also think that's a kind of lesson for Anastasia to teach her dog (but it may be Ortino, too, i don't know)how to do it on the right place.
Alexandra wants her to clean the poo poo so that she would not let Shvibzk (or ortino) do it again. She knows that one would be the fairest thing to do.

The first one is also my first one. But then it was the pretty one from 1906.

Me too -- first one I have seen was first one. Never seen the third one. 8)  It comes from Beniecke, I suppose.

That's the first photo where I ever saw her teeth for the first time (probably the 1st picture of a grand duchess showing her teeth).
