  5. Lili Dehn:

    “The Grand Duchess Tatiana was as charming as her sister Olga, but in a different way. She has been described as proud, but I never knew anyone less so. With her, as her mother, shyness and reserve were accounted as pride, but once you knew her and had gained her affection, this reserve disappeared, and the real Tatijana became apparent. She was a poetical creature, as always yearning for the ideal, and dreaming of great friendships which might be hers. The Emperor loved her devotedly, they had much in common, and the sisters used to laugh, and say that, if a favor were required, ‘Tatiana must ask Papa to grant it.’ She was very tall, and excessively thin, with a cameo-like profile, deep blue eyes, and dark chestnut hair… a lovely ‘Rose’ maiden, fragile and pure as a flower.”
