As Mandie said, Marie (Dagmar) had three brothers, Frederik, Wilhelm and Waldemar. Her brother Willie was elected King of Greece and ruled as George I. Dagmar also had another younger sister, Thyra.

There is a brilleant series about King Christain XI , Queen Louise and there six children. It's called 'A Royal Family' - It was excellent. There is a thread about in the Film section. It is a 6 episode series, about talk about each child, who they married their children etc. Also I show's some great footage and Photographs. Truely worth while watching.  ;)

Hope to be getting a video of the TV series on Christian IX and his family from a friend in Norway very soon ;).  Can't wait to see it.  Here is one of my favorite photos of Dagmar and her sister Alexandra.

Sorry it took so long for me to respond to your question.  This picture is from "Royal Cabinet Portraits of the Victorian Era" by David William Cripps.  I will try to post more soon.  What persons are you most interested in seeing?  I asume Princess/Queen Alexandra :)

Here is one from about 1863:

Ooooh, your photo is gorgeous!!!  You are absolutely right, now that I look more closely at the jewelry.  Speaking of jewelry, have you looked at the book, "Tiaras, A History of Splendour" by Geoffrey C. Munn?  I just love it and get it out of the library about once a month! :D

BTW, this may be a bit off topic.  As a fan of the late Princess Diana I see a striking resemblence in the style of Diana and Alexandra.  How they started out simply as "clothes horses" admired and copied by the general public.  Then as they grew older and adjusted to the "interesting twists" of their married lives, their styles matured and became even more spectacular.

Post by: grandduchessella on May 16, 2005, 11:17:16 PM
Thanks Speedy. I DO have the Munn book--it's great. I hemmed and hawed because of the price (and of course our library doesn't have it) I finally got the thumbs up from martyn (whose word on jewelry is final with me!) who said go for it. Haven't regretted it at all. I can go back and look at it over and over and find something new each time. I'm also going to get Vincent Meylan's book on royal jewelry--The Queen's Jewels. I've heard good things about it. And I have Leslie Field and Suzy Menkes books on Windsor jewelry. I enjoy seeing jewels from other countries though and the Meylan book is good at that.

There has actually been a good bit written comparing Alix and Diana--their immense popularity, cheating husbands, press adoration, common touch, fashion sense, beauty, not recognized as intellectuals, etc... There was an article years ago in Royalty magazine I think that did a comparison on the two. Luckily for Alix that while Bertie cheated he was never unkind to her (based on the conduct of the times--now we'd look at cheating period as unkind) the way Charles apparently was. The two realized their differences and established a strong relationship after some rocky points and doted on their family.

Alix was the First Lady of the England.  Edward VII never forgot it and never let anyone else forget it!

From what I have read and studied he loved Alix in a way that he loved no one else.  Alix was his wife, the mother of his children and consort.  The others were just diversion and confidantes from which he developed deep loving and sometimes sexual friendships.  The majority of his "conquests" were married women!  

Edward VII had no desire to get rid of or marginalize Alix.  She was his Queen!

I was doing to myself  ::) an report about Alix and Minnie. I know that Dagmar received this name for a beautiful and good-hearted queen who lived in the Middle Age. But I became curious about Alexandra...

Could it be that the parents choose the name remembering a sister-in-law of Louise, grand duchess Alexandra Nicolaevna? If I´m not wrong, Alexandra Nicolaevna married landgrave Friedrich of Hesse-Cassel in january 1844, but the young wife aged nineteen died the same year giving birth to a first son that did not survive the mother.

Am I right?

You can see Princess Mary Adelaide of Cambridge (later Duchess of Teck and mother of Queen Mary) in the dark dress to the right of the photo, under the window. Her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, was born a princess of Hesse-Cassel--like Queen Louise of Denmark--and was frequently at the family gatherings at Rumpenheim.

Post by: grandduchessella on June 24, 2006, 10:15:47 PM
Alexandra had a smaller-scale version painted as well as a segment of her, Bertie and Eddy (exactly as they are in the full version). It seems that most of the children and Louise & Christian had their sections done as separate pictures as well as the group. L&C's section is at Frederiksborg, I believe, as are many of the other small group portraits.

Tuxen did the preliminary sketches when the group was gathered in Denmark for Queen Louise's birthday as well as the background and composition. There's a copy of a preliminary portrait--minus Nicholas and the future Christian X--from the background and Alexandra of Greece isn't next to Queen Olga. The figure of Misha is also slightly different. Misha is actually different in all 3 incarnations--the sketch, Queen Alexandra's copy and the finished picture. There were some additional changes to QA's version and the dog beside the Tsar is omitted and more of the ceiling (of the Garden Room) was shown. Her version was at Marlborough House, then Buckingham Palace and then returned to Marlborough House when she was widowed.

Some of the photos that were published--and some are on this site--were taken to use in the portrait. The photos of Louise & Christian in the portrait are almost identical to the photos. Tuxen also travelled back to Denmark when the Greek royals were visiting and to Russia where AIII sat for him (and where one of his aides put on his uniform and took his place for some time). The segment he did here of MF, AIII and Misha was done at Gatchina in 1884. He also went to Gmunden in the fall to do the Cumberlands and then onto England to do the Waleses.

QV was impressed enough to ask Tuxen to do Beatrice's wedding (which he declined) and then later her own family gathering.

On Alix's version of the family painting, a dog was added at Bertie's feet and the Duke of Cumberland was also added. Alix wanted the whole family. Actually, Bertie did'nt pose for the picture at all. He send Tuxen some photographs and his uniform. He had grown to big for his uniform, and thus was painted a little smaller around the belly than he really was ;)
Title: Re: Pictures of Christian IX and family, Part II
Post by: grandduchessella on June 26, 2006, 04:27:55 PM
There were many photos taken that correspond to the painting--Queen Louise and King Christian's pose it identical to a photo. However, Tuxen did paint the Cumberlands at Gmunden and Thyra posed with her 3 children, the youngest in her arms. The picture may have been taken then. The sittings he got were of fairly short duration and he used them to try to capture the personalities and to set up the composition.

The little Pomeranian added to Alex's picture had his own sketch done at it was hung at Sandringham and then Windsor.

When he went to England, he first went to Sandringham where only Alexandra and the girls were in residence. He later got a sitting at Marlborough House. It sounds like he got Bertie to sit at least once in addition to the photos.

Alll in all, he started in 1882 (the year of the gathering) and the final version of the portrait wasn't finished until Feb 1886.

Tuxen wrote about the sittings in his autobiography En Malers Arbejde, published in 1928.

And Gdella, thank you for pointing out Mary Cambridge in the Rumpenheim picture. I thought that it did look like her. I wish I could ID all the people, since I havn't seen that many Rumpenheim pictures. :)

It was almost impossible to gather everyone--Alix and MF were the most devoted. Even the Crown Prince, who lived in Denmark, was sometimes not there due to the treatment of Louise.

Ernst Cumberland hardly ever went, Bertie probably even less. AIII was the in-law there the most it seems. CPss Louise was uncomfortable and seemed to trail off going.

George and Eddy were often at sea, GV especially once Eddy returned to go to university. GD George's illnesses would catch up with him.

As the generations aged, two of the most prominent descendents, NII and GV, didn't seem to go much--NII went to some occasions, like Queen Louise's funeral, but without Alix. May was there once or twice but GV wasn't ever as dedicated to going, probably because he hadn't gone much as a boy and young man. Queen Sophie of Greece went, but I don't think I've ever seen pictures of those gatherings. Plus, the former Crown Princess Louise, once she became Queen, didn't have much desire to gather everyone together. Sad, really.  :(

Post by: Eric_Lowe on July 04, 2006, 09:22:32 PM

The old newspaper article I got the picture from (hence the quality) also ID's the man as GD Mikhail, and the other is Prince Christopher. The article also notes that Thyra once again is the only one missing from this gathering at Bernstorff ( although Valdemar and CP Frederik  are not in this picture).

The picture is from the same paper as the previous one I posted, and it was in connection with the tragic death of Prince Georg Wilhelm in 1912.

So they may be in Denmark or maybe Gmunden but not probably England or Russia, well since you are so uncertain, how about Italy, Egypt, India?

Fantastic Pictures Kmerov and Svetabel  !!!!

Here is a picture that was posted by Kmerov in the earlier thread on Christian IX and his family, and I believe it was taken in the same room as the one with Queen Louise I quoted.
(http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f78/opzich/Royals%20past%20and%20present/sep1896.jpg)
I recognized the vase standing on the closet, but Louise ( I think) changed furniture and paintings and isn’t that the little statue from Dagmar from the museum. (were the colour pictured was send from in the early thread, were the whole family was looking at the statue of Alix and Dagmar)

Thank you both.  :) Yes, pictures from old newspapers are not the best quality, and it dosn't help that the picture shrinks when you post it!
I can't say if they are in morning. The closest deaths in the family that year that I can think of, are Alexander III and Princess Louise of Glücksborg (CIX's sister), but both died in november 1894, after this picture was taken.
I have reposted the group picture as a link, so you can se it a bit clearer in another window.

Post by: grandduchessella on November 08, 2006, 04:08:55 PM
It's often misidentified--it is Louise. The photo was taken (and became one of the most popular and reproduced royal images of the time) to show the British public how their beloved princess had recovered from her illness during her pregnancy and the long recuperative period.

Series of these photos were very popular at the time--it seems the public enjoyed seeing the more human side of the royals. There are also ones with Queen Mary and Prince George and Louise (Fife) with Alexandra. I've been slowly accumulating them.  :) I find them especially charming. The Daisy one was published in the Graphic (or ILN, I always get them mixed up) in the early weeks of her death.

Thanks for the proper Id, i wasn't sure myself, since I knew the famous picture had been Id'ed as one of the other children. The author of the book where I got the picture said it was Prince Victor Albert so I played it safe!
The author also speculates that the pose maybe came about because of the tournoure. But yes they are charming. :)

Interesting pictures, I've never seen them before!
I think that the boy in the sailor dress to the left is Prince Axel. (son of Valdemar & Marie of Orleans).
Prince Carl (later Haakon of Norway) is standing to the right of Prince Christian.

Young Prince Frederik could be in the picture too, but I won't bet on it!.

I suppose it's a picture from 1900?

If I am not mistaken, I recognize on the first pic, first row : Princess Victoria of England, Princess Alexandrine of Denmark, spouse of Prince Christian, with her baby child Frederik, King Christian IX, Queen Alexandra, Empress Maria Feodorovna, Princess Marie of Orléans and Alix of Hesse.

Behind them : Prince Christian of Denmark, later King Christian X, King Georges Ier of Greece, Prince Nicolas of Greece, Tsar Nicolas II and Prince Valdemar of Denmark.

Its probably a photo from 1899 or 1900.

Sitted on the steps, the children are, from left to right : Prince Axel, two of his brothers, Princess Irina Alexandrovna, Princess Margreth of Denmark, Grand Duchesses Olga and Tatiana Nicolaievna, and an other brother of Axel.

Yes. I think Dagmar is at the back.

That's definitely not Dagmar at the back with Crown Princess Louisa.  I think the lady in front with the Queen is Princess Marie of Anhalt, the Queen's sister, and the lady behind her may be her daughter Princess Hilda of Anhalt.

Here is the 3 sisters together in 1870, they was called the “three graces” and considered very very beautiful, as they actually where.

But she was able to see Dagmar after the war when she visted her sister at Hvidore. It was her suggestion that Waldemar started investigation on Anna Anderson.

Sad that Dagmar had all her grandchildren killed.  :'(

She didn't have all her grandchildren killed--she still had Xenia, Olga & Michael's children--though she wasn't as close to the children of the latter 2. I know what you meant though about suffering the loss of 5 of her grandchildren. Another great grief was the loss of all 4 of her sons--Alexander as an infant, George as a young man to tuberculosis, and then Nicholas and Michael to the Bolsheviks. I wouldn't blame her if she honestly did believe until the end that they were alive.

Thyra suffered the loss of 2 of her sons--Christian to illness and George Wilhelm to an accident and Alexandra lost an infant son (Alexander John) and a grown one, Prince Albert Victor. It was a sad bond all 3 women had.

She didn't visit England. I don't know whether she met up with Alix in Denmark after the war or not. I'm not sure when Alexanda's last visit to Denmark was. Thyra kept up somewhat of a correspondence with George V who was apparently quite fond of her.

No...The Wrangel project was announced on the new RD, which he published...Don't tell me you don't knowabout that ?

Not from Rosvall or Art and hopefully not a long wait still.

(http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f78/opzich/QueenAlexandraandPrinceOlaf.jpg)

Two great pictures of Queen Alexandra in mourning with her beloved grandson prince Olav of Norway, son of her daughter Maud and future king of Norway. In the first picture you can see Alexandre lovingly embracing her grandson just after his arriving at the trainstation in Copenhagen, and Olav apparently is trilled to see his grandmother. Look at Olav standing on his toes to watch his beloved grandmother in the face, isn't it a heart warming picture. And Olav's mother Queen Maud of Norway is getting out of the train with help of her husband King Haakon of Norway in the background. King Christian X of Denmark, a cousin towards Maud and brother of Haakon is greeting them and takes his hat of.

In the following picture Queen Alexandra in her mourning dress and little grandson Olav in his sailor suite pose in front of the camera (the close-up is a well known picture), probably a few minutes after the first picture was taken. Alexandra's sister Thyra, the Duchess of Cumberland is standing at the right and Olav's father (the man with his back towards the camera) is standing at the left, at least that's my suggestion.

I'm not shore which occasion is the reason fore this family-gathering. At first I thought it could be the funeral of Alexandra's father King Christian IX of Denmark in 1906 Because of the mourning Queen Alexandra is wearing, it is the same outfit as the picture I posted before of Alix and Minny at the Klampenborg trainstation in 1906. But Olav would have been three at that time and he is looking much older than that in the pictures above. So it must be fore the funeral of King Frederick VIII of Denmark, Alexandra's brother. Olav would have been nine by that time and that more likely to be the occasion than the 1906 funeral. And when I take a second look at the picture of Alexandra and Dagmar I posted before, I think that one is taken to in 1912 (and not 1906). So a little mistake, but I'm glad I have restored it. I really enjoy seeing pictures of the Glucksbourg family, their history is so intresting and a pleasure to study.

Three royal siblings on board a Royal Yacht, maybe during a holiday in Greece but propably during a holiday spend in their homeland Denmark. King George the first of Greece is standing at the left together with his elder sister Queen Alexandra of England arm in arm. Their younger sister Dagmar or Empress Dowager Maria Feodorovna of Russia is standing towards the right of them with a woodenbox in both her hands. This picture must be taken in the last years of King George's life before he was murdered by a mentally deranged Greek schoolteacher during a walk in town in what would be his fatal year, 1913.

Another group picture of of the big royal family during a stay in Denmark. The picture is rather small, but I can tell you that Thyra and even her husband were present at this family gathering. Thyra is standing next to her mother Queen Louise and her sister the Empress Marie Feodorovna (Dagmar),Tsar Alexander III, Dagmar's husband is standing behind them. Next to Dagmar are her brother Crownprince Frederick and Princess Victoria (Toria). And Crownprincess Louise is also present, she can be seen between her mother-inlaw Queen Louise and sister-inlaw Thyra. Next to the Duke of Cumberland stands King Christian IX and his oldest daughter Queen Alexandra. Infront of them princess Maud is sitting next to one of Thyra's daughters (probably Olga). Valdemar is sitting at the right of his brother-inlaw the Duke of Cumberland, I'm not shore but it could be Marie Orleans (Valdemar's wife) standing behind Queen Alexandra. The man next to Valdemar could be prince George of Greece. And the men behind Christian IX and his wife Louise could be brothers of the King. The girl between Alexandra and Queen Louise looks like Ingeborg, daughter of Frederick and Louise. Little Olga Alexandrovna (Dagmar's daughter) is the girl sitting in white, the third from the left infront of her aunt Thyra. The girl first one from the left sitting could be Xenia, Dagmar's other daughter. The girl infront of her grandmother Queen Louise, could be princess Thyra, daughter of Crownprince Frederick and Crownprincess Louise. The boys could be Valdemar and Marie's sons (the one with the navt costume) or Ernst August and Thyra's sons ( the one in the front, first at the right.). And the boy with the straw hat could be prince Harald, son of Frederick and Louise.
It must have been a rare picture, with Ernst August and Thyra, Frederick and Louise present. Too bad George I (Vilhelm) and his wife Olga weren't their, or atleast not in this picture.

Aarhus is in Nothern Jutland and the main city of Jutland. I think they just made a visit to the city, which the RF often did. Yes, they are at Marselisborg Palace which belonged to Christian X and Alexandrine.

Thank you very much kmerov, fore those wonderfull and rare pictures of Christian IX and Louise's royal bunch! I just love Alix's royal smile in the last picture and giving the thought that it is Her Imperial Majesty The Empress Maria Feodorovna beeing lift up, puts a smile on my face too. Aldo she was just rich aunt 'Minny' from Russia fore them. And I also think the 'state portraits' like the one with their father are wonderfull. The one with Olga in it, just shows you a glimpse of late 19th century royal life. Thank you so much fore sharing kmerov!

Front row are 3 sons of Waldemar & Marie (I always get them all mixed up); Christian IX is holding Waldemar's daughter Margarethe and Empreses Alexandra is holding Olga. Back row is Queen Alexandra, Prince Waldemar, Empress Marie, Czar Nicholas, Princess Victoria of Wales holding ?? (it looks like Prince Edward of York), Princess Marie (wife of Waldemar)

When I asked about this picture not so long ago somebody identified the child Toria is holding as Prince Viggo of Denmark...
The princes in the front "should" be from the left Axel, Erik and Aage.

Viggo makes sense. I was thinking the child was too close in age to Margarethe but it could work, I guess. Viggo was born on Christmas Day in 1893 and Margarethe 17 Sep 1895.

Post by: Eric_Lowe on December 27, 2009, 11:41:55 AM

"Queen Louise with baby Eddie" refers to Prince Albert Victor, not the future Edward VIII. You had asked for identification under the picture of the family group from 1864.

Sad. It would have been good to maintain it as the Greeks would have loved to have a Danish home during their later exile years. Was that place ever considered a place to install the Russian Dowager Empress ? Any inside shots of the castle ?

Thanks for the Grand Duke Alexander arrival painting ? Where is the painting now ? I went to the national gallery at Copenhagen and didn't see it. Maybe in private collection ?

Priceless as always kmerov! Some of this movies were just in the splendid documentairy 'A Royal Family' by Anna Lerche. At least the first one and the one were several grandchildren of Christian IX and Louise ride their bikes in front of the camera.

I would say the end of the 1890-ties, but it's just a guess.

Another picture.

From left the ID's are; George (V), GD Mikhail, Prince Valdemar, Prince Max of Baden, Crown Prince Constantine of Greece.

MAx of Baden and Constantine?, It looks to me like the one next to Waldemar is Constantine and the other Giorgos 0_o

Those are Constantin and a brother of Waldemar's wife, Henry or Jean.

Are you sure?. Im not 100% sure about the guy beside Waldemar. but the one of the right looks a lot like Giorgos.,

I agree...He does look like Greek Georgie.

About the man beside Waldemar, at least Jean d`Guise it isnt. He had a big nose, according this picture posted by Kmerov

(http://i40.tinypic.com/6em0kz.jpg)

And it looks to "bald" for being Henri

(illustration of the era)

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2f/Henri_d%27Orl%C3%A9ans_%281867-1901%29.jpg)

BTW when the picture was taken? if it was  in 1901 later it cant be Henri since he died in 1901. Fot me they re Constantine and Giorgos.

I don't know wthat year the picture was taken, but I was unsure about the ID myself, so I just wrote what the caption said. But no, I don't think it's Jean or Henri.

That was Greek Georgie...not question about it in my mind.

The picture is taken before 1901. Had we clearer version then we'd answer the ID question...
Title: Re: Pictures of Christian IX and family, Part II
Post by: Carolath Habsburg on July 13, 2010, 07:00:30 AM
Yup, that would be great. Still, im pretty sure those gents are Constantine and Giorgos.

Yes. Especially Greek Georgie since he is rather big in size if you observe him in family group photos.  :)

In this photograph ''Minny'' and Thyra really became old ladies. Their dear older sister Alexandra is really a missing link.

Margaret of Borbon-Parma (mother of Queen Anne of Romania) is sliping an arm on Prince George of Greece (Princess Viggo (Eleanor Green)hold the other arm). Thyra's daughter Grand Duchess Alexandra of Mecklenburg-Scherwin and her sister Olga of Cumberland isstanding behind her mother Thyra and Aunt Dagmar. Prince Valdermar of Denmark with glasses stood at the back with glasses, while Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Scherwin stands beside his wife.
