Tatiana

Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna Romanov (also known as simply Tatiana or by her nickname Tanya) (born June 10, 1897 in Peterhof Palace, Saint Petersburg, Russia) is the middle one of Anastasia’s three elder sisters from the 1997 Don Bluth animated film Anastasia. She was the second daughter of Tsar Nicholas II, the last monarch of Russia, and of Tsarina Alexandra. She was born at Peterhof, Saint Petersburg. Tatiana was the younger sister of Grand Duchess Olga and the elder sister of Grand Duchess Maria, Grand Duchess Anastasia and Tsarevich Alexei. She was known amongst her siblings as "the governess" for her domineering but also maternal ways. Tatiana was the closest out of all the children to her mother (Tsarina Alexandra), often spending many hours reading to her. She was often thought to be the most beautiful of all her sisters, and was the most aristocratic in appearance. During World War I, she chaired many charity committees and (along with her older sister Grand Duchess Olga) trained to become a nurse. She tended to wounded soldiers on the grounds of Tsarskoye Selo from 1914 to 1917. Her time as a nurse came to an end when her family was cursed by Grigori Rasputin in 1917 after the first Russian Revolution.

Her murder by communist revolutionaries under the influence of Rasputin's black magic on 17 July 1918 resulted in her being named as a passion bearer by the Russian Orthodox Church. Tatiana and all of her siblings (except Anastasia) were falsely rumored to have survived the assassination and dozens of impostors claimed to be surviving Romanovs, until two con men named Dimitri Sudayev and Vladimir Vasilovich found the youngest daughter, Anastasia, who survived the assassination, but got amnesia, and brought her to Paris, France to prove to the world that Anastasia was alive. Author Michael Occleshaw speculated that a woman named Larissa Tudor might have been Tatiana; however, most of the royal family, including Tatiana, with the exception of Anastasia, who escaped, were assassinated by the Bolsheviks, under the influence of Rasputin's black magic.
