8. She Was An Honorary Commander

As per the tradition followed by the Romanov’s, each of the royal daughters was made an honorary commander of a Russian army regiment on their 14th birthday. So naturally, in 1914 when the little princess turned 14, she was made the commander of the Kaspiyisky regiment.

It was also a royal tradition for the daughters to be photographed in full military uniform and meet the regiment. Sadly, since World War I began around the same time, Anastasia didn’t get a chance to do so.
