Alexandra Feodorovna: Scarce French vintage portrait photo-postcard from appr. 1905. Unused postcard, minor aging, no bends or tears.
Alexandra Feodorovna (Russian: Императрица Александра Фёдоровна, Imperatritsa Aleksandra Fyodorovna) (1872 – - 1918), was Empress consort of Russia as the spouse of Nicholas II, the last Emperor of the Russian Empire. Born as Alix of Hesse and by Rhine, she was a granddaughter of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom. Upon being received into the Russian Orthodox Church, she was given the name Alexandra Feodorovna and—having been put to death along with her immediate family while in Soviet captivity in 1918—was canonized in 2000 as Saint Alexandra the Passion Bearer.
Alexandra was the last Tsaritsa of Russia and one of the most famous royal carriers of the haemophilia disease. Her reputation for influencing her husband's resistance to the surrender of autocratic authority over the country and her known faith in the Russian mystic, Grigori Rasputin, severely damaged her popularity and that of the Romanov monarchy in its final years.
