THE ROMANOVS AND SERGEI YESENIN
DID YOU KNOW that Russia’s tragic young poet Sergei Yesenin once worked as a medical attendant at the Grand Duchesses’ Maria and Anastasia’s infirmary in 1917? He also served in their military-medical train #143.
Onscreen portrayals of the Romanov family often get many things wrong, but the one thing they do tend to get right is that the Romanov grand duchesses loved dancing. All four Romanov sisters regularly mentioned dancing in their diaries and letters.
