I saw some other people had a stickied birthday thread, and that's a good idea. That way we don't create a new thread every year.

On June 7, Alix will be 137. That's Sunday.

Because of the calender differences, it became the 7th after 1900.

But Alexandra´s birthdate 6th June is from western calendar, is it not? In that case it doesn´t move.

All birthdates went down a day after 1900. I don't really understand it myself. That's why Olga's birthday is now on 16 November, Tatiana's is 11th June...etc.

Yes, but Alexandra was born in Germany. Not in Russia.

7 June is the technically correct date to observe the anniversary of Alexandra's birth on the Western calendar.

However, Alexandra herself apparently didn't care much for the way the new style dates shifted after 1900 -- a notation at the top of her diary page for 24 May/6 June 1918 says "my real B.D." A footnote at the bottom of the page explains: The empress's bithday had been celebrated officially on 25 May (old style), despite the fact that at the turn of the century the difference between the old and new calendars changed from twelve to thirteen days. From Alexandra's point of view, her "real" birthday should have been celebrated on 6 June (new style).
