Minny stilled looked a bit girlish in the photo while Olga looked more mature.

Was Nicholas her first born child? I think I read somewhere she had another boy before? Sorry, it was her second born, I found it again, Alexander ... do we know something more about him?

He died very young. As he was her first born. It is understandable why she spoilt her children (especially the elder ones). She also had a miscarriage in her life too...

Eric, I too remembered him as the first born but not according to wikipedia! Do you remember where you read about it?

It was in Coryne Hall's book on Marie Feodorovna "Little Mother Of Russia".

To clarify: NICHOLAS (1868-1918) was the first born, though, as Coryne Hall suggests in "Little Mother of Russia", there is some evidence that the future Empress Marie F. may have had a miscarriage before her successful pregnancy with him. Alexander lived 1869-70, and the idea that he was the first son is nothing more than one of those "lost heir" fantasies which arise when a monarch screws up as Nicholas did: the fond idea that if his brother had succeeded, things might have gone differently. It used to be written that Alexander was the eldest in the sort of books which summarised royal lives, not in-depth biographies - in fact, Alexander Mikhailovich may be responsible, ultimately, because he did say this in one of his many tomes. Coryne does not describe him as first son in her in-depth book, because he wasn't.

Yes. I think they mixed up the miscarriage with Alexander. The fact that there is no photo of Alexander complicated things. Even her sister Alix posed in a photo with her baby son Eddy.

My forthcoming book related to Alexander III presents indisputable evidence that will confirm once and for all whether Tsesarevna Mariya Fyodorovna suffered a miscarriage or not.

Don't think so other than bits from the Danish program on Glucksborgs on youtube.
