by Coryne Hall & Senta DriverWhy did Queen Alexandra and her sister, the Dowager Empress, decide to buy a private villa in Denmark, and what were the circumstances that forced the exiled Empress to make it her new home? Coryne Hall tells the fascinating story of two famous sisters and their Royal Retreat. Magnificent original illustrations from a private collection.
In 1906 Queen Alexandra of Great Britain and her sister, the Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna of Russia purchased Hvidøre, a villa on the Danish coast, as their private home. Until 1914, the sisters visited the property every autumn, entertaining friends and many royal relatives in an informal atmosphere. It was indeed a royal retreat.
The First World War put an end to these happy times but in 1919, now exiled from Russia, the Dowager Empress Marie made the villa her home and Hvidøre became her Court in exile. In 1920 she was joined by her daughter, the Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna and her family, who all lived at Hvidøre, not always happily, until the Empress's death in 1928.
Hvidøre: A Royal Retreat tells the story of the purchase, renovation, the many royal visitors and finally the sale of this forgotten royal home. This beautiful and informative book is filled with magnificent original photographs from a private collection. 100 Black & White Photographshttp://www.royalbooks.se/produkt/54/hvidore-a-royal-retreat.htmlhttp://www.hoogstraten.nl/theshop/product_info.php?cPath=21_22_43&products_id=560
