ROMANOV FAMILY: ON THIS DATE IN THEIR OWN WORDS. ANASTASIA ROMANOV. 25 JANUARY, 1915.
1915 letter from Anastasia Romanov to Nicholas II:
Grand Duchess Olga and Grand Duchess Anastasia: the eldest and youngest imperial sisters. At first glance it may seem that the two did not have much in common and did not interact that much, at least not as much as “The Big Pair” did with each other. But that’s not really the case. The two sisters were actually pretty close to each other, and mention each other in their diaries and letters quite often and independently of the other sisters. There are also plenty of photos of just the two sisters together, from which we can see that they were close and spent a lot of time together. They also seemed to do a lot of things with their beloved “Papa”, Nicholas II, without the other sisters – just the two of them, especially they seemed to share the love of skiing and boating, and other physical things.
