Out of the five Imperial Children, the eldest Grand Duchess Olga was the one who achieved the most in the schoolroom. Olga was the cleverest of all, and was quite a bookworm. She easily grasped mathematical and scientific concepts. Olga wasn’t the only one who loved reading; her younger sister Tatiana loved reading as well. Olga was attached to poetry and literature books (her favorite was Les Misérables), while Tatiana preferred fashion magazines. Olga also enjoyed reading about politics in newspapers.
All of the children were very bright, but occasionally, they become lazy. The younger three children weren’t as scholarly as the oldest two. The Tsar’s Colonel Mordinov remembered Tsarevich Alexei: “Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaevich was an awfully lazy, but very capable boy (I think, he was lazy precisely because he was capable), he easily grasped everything, he was thoughtful and keen beyond his years.”
I totally love Tatiana’s dress here. Looks like something out of the Tudor era. :)
