Empress Alexandra Feodorovna of Russia (Alix of Hesse)

95 Pins

Alix Viktoria Luise Beatrice of Hesse, and by Rhine, later Alexandra Feodorovna Romanova (6 June 1872—17 July 1918), was Empress consort of Russia as spouse of Nicholas II, last Emperor of the Russian Empire. Granddaughter to Queen Victoria of the UK, she was named Alexandra Feodorovna upon being received into the Russian Orthodox Church, which canonized her as a saint in 2000. She is best remembered as the last Tsarina of Russia, and as a famous royal carrier of the haemophilia disease.

Grand Duke Dmitrii Pavlovich and Empress Alexandra. (Dmitrii was raised primarily by Alexandra's sister Grand Duchess Elizavetta after his Father left Russia to have a morganatic marriage. Dmitrii was very close to the Empress (and was a possible suitor of her eldest daughter Olga) but later was involved with the plot to murder her confidant Grigorii Rasputin).

    This is much, much earlier than 1915 - Alexandra was pregnant here, and the sleeves are 1890s.
