Tatiana Konstantinovna was the niece of the
Great prince Dmitri Konstantinovich (1860-1919), who owned the charming palace "

Tatiana was the only member of the large family of the Great Prince
Konstantin Konstantinovich (famous poet, who used the pen-name "
K.R." - Konstantin Romanov) whose marriage was morganatic.

Georgian Prince Konstantin Bagration-Moukhranski overcame the strict
laws of marriage of the reigning dynasty, and they were betrothed in the
Church of Intercession in Livadia in the spring of 1911.
