Alexandra Feodorovna (1872-1918) Empress of Russia and the wife of the Emperor NicholasⅡwas destined to be the last Tsarina of the Romanov Dynasty.
A favourite grand daughter of Queen Victoria, Alexandra was a German Princess who was to marry a Russian monarch and bear him four daughters and one son.
Her reputation for encouraging her husband’s resistance to change and the surrender of his autocratic authority severely damaged her popularity in general and the Romanov dynasty in particular especially in its latter years.
In addition her faith in and reliance in the Russian mystic, Rasputin further angered and encouraged her detractors and enemies.
Tragically her, her husband and their children were all to be murdered by the Bolsheviks more than a year after the Tsar’s abdication in 1917.
Here we see Alexandra in happier times dressed in a classic white ball gown and wearing a few of her many awards and valuable jewels.
