Tatiana was described as tall and slender, with dark auburn hair and dark blue-gray eyes, fine, chiseled features, and a fefined, elegant bearing befitting thhe daughter of an Emperor. She was considered the most beautiful of the four grand duchesses by many people. Of all her sisters Tatiana most closley resembled their mother. Like the other Romanov children Tatiana was raised with some austerity. Tatiana and her sisters slept on bed camps without pillows, took cold baths in the morning and were expected to keep themselves busy with embroidery or knitting projects if they had a spare moment.
Tatiana a was practical and had a natural talent for leadership. Her sisters gave her the nickname ``The Governess´ and sent her as their group reprasentitive when they wanted their parents to grant a favor. Olga had no problem Tatiana decided to take charge of a situation. Tatiana was the conduit of all her mother decisions. ``It was not that her sisters loved their mother any less,´´ said french tutor Pierre Gillard, ``but Tatiana knew how to surround her with unwearing attentionsand never gave way to her own capricious impulses. Alexandra wrote Micholas on 13 March 1916 that Tatiana was the only one of their four daughters who ``grasped it´´ when she explained her way of looking at things.
Gillar wrote that Tatiana was reserved and well balanced but less open and spontaneous than Olga. She was also less talented than Olga, but worked harder and was more dedicated to seeing projects through to complection than her older sister. Colonel Kobylinsky, the family´s gaurd at Tsarskoye Selo and Tobolsk, felt Tatiana ``had no liking for art. Others felt Tatiana´s artistic talents were better expressed in handiwork and in her talent for chooding attractive fashions and creating elegant hair styles. Her mother´s frian Anna Vyrubova later wrote that Tatiana had great talent for making clothing, embroidery and crochet and she dresses her mother´s long hair as well as any professional har stylist.
