Alexander III Denmark cottage
« on: March 21, 2008, 01:22:19 PM »
I found this pic of a house with Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovich and Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna sitting in front of it. My question is if this is the house that Alexander III bought in Denmark?

Not sure. Hopefully it's still standing. I just looked carefully at the pic. I think I see their nannines and those boys standing might be their servants because of the way they're dressed.

If ti remained it would I assume have belonged to someone in the Imperial Family. Do we know who ended up with it?

I don't think it was in the family when the revolution broke up, otherwise  GD Olga Alexandrova wouldn't have gone to live with her mother at Hividore..

That's true. Wonder who ended up with it, looks rather nice. Shame they sold their properties abroad as things turned out.

From another web page
http://kkinst1.inforce.dk/sw16123.asp

Translated by Google it says:

"The Emperor's Villa," The Emperor's Road 1, was bought by Tsar Alexander III in 1885.  The house was owned by the district bailiff Andreas Hjorth Grove, who had expected to live here in his retirement, but he had nĝdtvunget sell his house in zaren for 25,000 dollars.  It was part of the tsarist dying and was sold to photographer Otto Agger Holm."'

If anyone can translate the danish more accurately, please help.

Here you can see The Kejserens Villa in Fredensborg: http://www.mieks.com/research/danpalaces-kv.html. I do not believe it is the same house as on the first photo, but it looks a bit alike.

The Kejserens Villa is one of the "palaces" depicted on one of the Fabergé Imperial Easter Eggs, the Danish Palaces Egg.

The cottage in the picture is the "Svenske Villa" (the Swedish Villa) near the Bernstorff summer Palace, just north of Copenhagen.

The villas was originally build as the Swedish pavillion for the "Store Nordiske Landbrugs- og Industriudstilling" (The Great Nordic Exhibition for Agriculture and Industry) in 1888, but was bought by Queen Louise and transported to the park at Bernstorff. The building still exists and is now an exhibition space for local artists. You can see more images of it at the website http://www.svenskevilla.dk/
