Feodor Vassilyev (c. 1707[1]-1782) was a peasant from Shuya, Russia. His first wife, Mrs. Vassilyev sets the record for most children birthed by a single woman. She gave birth to a total of 69 children; however, few other details are known of her life, such as her date of birth or death. She gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets and 4 sets of quadruplets between 1725 and 1765, in a total of 27 births. 67 of the 69 children born are said to have survived infancy

Imperial children were taught arithmetics, geography, history and religion, from languages they had to know Russian, English and French and the two elder girls knew a little German, but spoke it with difficulty. The younger ones and the Tsarevich did not know it at all. The language situation within the Imperial family was such that the Grand Duchesses spoke English to their mother and Russian to their father and brother. They used both and also French among themselves.

The girls were usually dressed all alike, sometimes the Big pair wore one colour and the younger girls another one, clothing being chosen by their mother and the clothes outgrown by the elders were handed down to the younger girls. According to the tradition the girls didn´t wear long skirts until they were 16, when they were considered adults. At that age they also could cut off their long hair and choose their own dresses. The girls were usually dressed in a simple English fashion.
