Postcard Friendship Friday


Empress Alexandra Feodorovna with her son, the Tsarevich Alexei, 1913

Alix 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, the last Emperor of the Russian Empire. Born a granddaughter of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, she was given the name Alexandra Feodorovna upon being received into the Russian Orthodox Church, which canonised her as Saint Alexandra the Passion Bearer in 2000.

  2. A tender Postcard.
    With her dear loved and precious one.
    I have read a lot about them, and OTMA too.
    They made mistakes, as we do all, they paid the heavy price.
    My daughter is named Alexandra.

  3. I have many books about Nicholas and Alexandra and enjoy the rich history of that era. This is such a beautiful photograph of mother and son.

  4. A lovely picture. I didn't know she had been canonised. That must be a first for the British Royal family.
