Wonderful!!!! Katenka - would it be possible to have it without the mark to my inbox please? I would have sent you a PM, but it seems the ones I posted earlier did not reach you.

Georgiy Aleksandrovich
(I know that you all know  it's from a large picture of Aleksander III's family and others, but it wasn't posted here anyway, at least I haven't seen it here)

Thanks Olgasha.
I love seeing pics of the Romanov children in Denmark with their family. It portrays a sense of unity and celebration.

This is a response to earlier posts on this thread (?) There are historical incidences of princesses willing to marry men who were already ill with something. Three immediately come to mind: May of Teck was engaged to 'Eddie'--just a few things not in his favor: poor health, bisexual scandals, and very low intellect. When he died of pneumonia (?) she fairly quickly became engaged to the new British heir--the younger brother. Dagmar repeated the same thing with GD Nicholas Alexandrovitch--poor health but a greater candidate for a ruler than Eddie. Prince Leopold of Britain had no trouble finding a bride although his crippling hemophilia was well known.

Since tuberculosis/consumption ran through all the royal families I imagine spousal selection was a gamble but swayed by power and position and hopefully mutual attraction. Checking the web I found no site which supported the absence of sexual activity with a case of TB as a symptom. I'm sure this is highly individualized depending on sex drive but not generally applied.
I'm redefining myself at present--any suggestions?

Well, there were Princesses who were willing to marry men with less then perfect health, but I still think that it was an issue of concern, and a ilness was something that was a disadvantage both for women and men.
Prince Leopold did have trouble finding a princess to marry, and his ilness was a big factor in this. I don't think you can put Eddie in the same poor health category as Leopold or George Alexandrovich.

And Nixa, Grand Duke Nicholas Alexandrovich, became engaged while still healthy - he became ill after proposing to Dagmar.

In actual fact Niksa was never healthy after he the first time he fell off his horse in 1859.

He experienced periods of depression and lethargy due to his periodic physical incapacity that was caused by an underlying lumbar condition, well before he travelled to Copenhagen to propose to Dagmar.

Georgiy Aleksandrovich (in the centre) with his parents and siblings at Spala or Białowieża (I'm not sure, but I think it was the last time, when he and his father Tsar Aleksander III were in Poland in 1894.

Well I wasn't sure if it had been posted on one of the Nicholas or Empress Maria threads so I just posted without the mark. Also, the quality wasn't the best. Scanner problems.  : [
