Maybe I think those quotes on the eyes should be reexamined.

Dagmar had been described as both gentle and bossy at diffident times.

Robert Massie says in Nicholas and Alexandra that Marie had brown eyes.  Greg King says in a post
on kingandwilson.com that her eyes were blue.  Which one is correct?

They look brown in the portraits with which I am familiar.  However, I know of instances in which dark
blue eyes look brown on film except in extreme closeup. It may be the same with color reproductions of portraits.

Thanks.

On looking again at the portraits reproduced in this topic, I think they're probably blue.

Sorry.

I would think about 5 to 5'2. Her husband was at least 6 to 6'5. I would think...

I have been wondering the same thing about her height. She was quite small. I'd assume 5ft3 going by photos?

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.

There is a photo of Alexander. It's been reproduced several times. I think it's a post-mortem shot of him surrounded by flowers with a little cap.
