... The later of years of the
Grand Duke Constantine's life were spent in his beautiful retreat at
Pavlovsk, where, it is said, he lived under police supervision.
Towards his last days he had been bereft by paralysis of the power of
speech, and could only scrawl in characters in blue pencil a sort of
indication of his wishes. Thus, when the birth of a granddaughter
was announced to him, he scrawled the typical Russian national name of
Tatiana, which Pushkin had immortalised; and it is said that in
obedience to that implied command she was the first Russian Imperial
Princess to be christened with a truly Russian name... (The Court of
Russia in the Nineteenth Century, Hodgetts, v.2, 1908)
