I have reviewed Tatiana Romanov, Daughter of the Last Tsar: Diaries and Letters, 1913–1918, translated and edited by Helen Azar for Canadian Slavonic Papers.
Grand Duchess Tatiana, the second of the four daughters of Czar Nicholas II of Russia and Empress Alexandra, was murdered alongside her family in 1918, at the age of twenty-one. The remains of the Imperial family were excavated in the 1990s and are now buried in the Peter and Paul fortress in St. Petersburg. Tatiana Romanov, Daughter of the Last Tsar captures the experiences and achievements of the young grand duchess during one of the most tumultuous periods in Russia’s history.
