I feel sorry for Maria...

She lost her two eldest children, lost the love of her husband and had to see his Mistress and their children in her home...

I was recently looking for pics and I found this with the name of the Empress below. I don't understand Greek and can't read what it's written in the upper part, so I want to ask if this is actually she.
From a 1850's magazine.

It doesn't look much like her, but I believe that is supposed to be Maria Alexandrovna.
