Tsarevich Alexei with sailor (Derevenko) assigned to look after him. Derevenko's two sons would often play with Alexei. After the revolution Derevenko was found barking orders at the boy and then abandoned the family.
Tsarina Alexandra with her son Tsarevich Alexei Romanov. as Alexis was diagnosed as a haemophiliac and was not expected to live long. Both parents devoted much time to the boy and left the government of Russia to others. Alexandra was a very protective mother, but she was also determined to see that her son became tsar. Alexandra believed that she was more suited to do this than her husband:
Grand Duchess Tatiana was the second child of Nicholas II and Alexandra; she and her elder sister Olga were known as the "Big Pair", and sought one another out for company in what seems, based on the reading of their diaries, to have been a lonely existence.
Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna, grand daughter of Maria Feodorovna.
