Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna of Russia in bed with her mother Empress Alexandra Feodorovna and brother Tsarevich Alexei by her side. During the grand celebrations of the Romanov Tercentenary in 1913, Grand Duchess Tatiana fell ill with the Typhoid fever after she drank contaminated water. Tatiana spent several weeks in bed and as Tatiana’s hair was cut short, she had to wear uncomfortable wigs for official occasions and formal photoshoots.
