Poor Count Nirod is in bad shape. I am so unbelievably happy with today!!! A bright day after 2 o'cl and a warm spell. Took a short walk in the morning. Took inventory of my things and books and started to put aside everything that I want to bring with me if we have to go to England. After breakfast walked with Olga and Tatiana and worked in the garden. Spent the evening as usual. When all the anxiety was over, and the terrors had ceased, there was simply a blessed feeling at what had come to pass!
God what happiness!!! She had great charm, and could be the merriest of the merry. When she was a schoolgirl, her unfortunate teachers had every possible practical joke played on them by her.
The Diary of Olga Romanov: Royal Witness to the Russian Revolution by Helen Azar
When she grew up, she was always ready for any amusement. She was generous, and an appeal to her met with immediate response. Her more careful sister, Tatiana, would suggest practical measures, would note names and details, and come back to the subject later out of a sense of duty. Olga Nikolaevna was devoted to her father. The horror of the Revolution told on her more keenly than on any of the others. She changed completely, and all her bright spirits disappeared. I mean, good books with documented references.
I don't care about the language, it could be russian, german, french as long as they are reliable. The Imperial children have been also well researched in some books focused on their parents, but literature aimed at them is scarce, given how private their family was - and how little influence on the events in Russia they had. Then went to the Church of the Savior for obednya. It was very nice.

His eldest child, Olga Nikolaevna, great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria, had begun a diary in when she was ten years old and kept writing her thoughts and impressions of day-to-day life as a grand duchess until abruptly ending her entries when her father abdicated his throne in March Held at the State Archives of the Russian Federation in Moscow, Olga's diaries during the wartime period have never been translated into English until this volume.
At the outset of the war, Olga and her sister Tatiana worked as nurses in a military hospital along with their mother, Tsarina Alexandra. Olga's younger sisters, Maria and Anastasia, visited the infirmaries to help raise the morale of the wounded and sick soldiers. The strain was indeed great, as Olga records her impressions of tending to the officers who had been injured and maimed in the fighting on the Russian front.
Concerns about her sickly brother, Aleksei, abound, as well those for her father, who is seen attempting to manage the ongoing war. Gregori Rasputin appears in entries, too, in an affectionate manner as one would expect of a family friend. While the diaries reflect the interests of a young woman, her tone grows increasingly serious as the Russian army suffers setbacks, Rasputin is ultimately murdered, and a popular movement against her family begins to grow.
