b. 3 Jun 1843, Copenhagen

> 2. Princess Alexandra Caroline Mary Charlotte Louisa Julie of Denmark, b. 1 Dec 1844, Copenhagen

> 3. Christian Wilhelm Ferdinand Adolf, King of Greece 1863-1913, Prince of Denmark, b. 24 Dec 1845, Copenhagen

> 4. Princess Marie Sophie Friederike Dagmar of Denmark, 'Maria Feodorovna', b. 26 Nov 1847, Copenhagen

> 5. Princess Thyra Amelie Caroline Charlotte Anne of Denmark, b. 29 Sep 1853, Copenhagen

As Mandie said, Marie (Dagmar) had three brothers, Frederik, Wilhelm and Waldemar. Her brother Willie was elected King of Greece and ruled as George I. Dagmar also had another younger sister, Thyra.

There is a brilleant series about King Christain XI , Queen Louise and there six children. It's called 'A Royal Family' - It was excellent. There is a thread about in the Film section. It is a 6 episode series, about talk about each child, who they married their children etc. Also I show's some great footage and Photographs. Truely worth while watching.  ;)

Hope to be getting a video of the TV series on Christian IX and his family from a friend in Norway very soon ;).  Can't wait to see it.  Here is one of my favorite photos of Dagmar and her sister Alexandra.

Sorry it took so long for me to respond to your question.  This picture is from "Royal Cabinet Portraits of the Victorian Era" by David William Cripps.  I will try to post more soon.  What persons are you most interested in seeing?  I asume Princess/Queen Alexandra :)

Here is one from about 1863:

Ooooh, your photo is gorgeous!!!  You are absolutely right, now that I look more closely at the jewelry.  Speaking of jewelry, have you looked at the book, "Tiaras, A History of Splendour" by Geoffrey C. Munn?  I just love it and get it out of the library about once a month! :D

BTW, this may be a bit off topic.  As a fan of the late Princess Diana I see a striking resemblence in the style of Diana and Alexandra.  How they started out simply as "clothes horses" admired and copied by the general public.  Then as they grew older and adjusted to the "interesting twists" of their married lives, their styles matured and became even more spectacular.

Thanks Speedy. I DO have the Munn book--it's great. I hemmed and hawed because of the price (and of course our library doesn't have it) I finally got the thumbs up from martyn (whose word on jewelry is final with me!) who said go for it. Haven't regretted it at all. I can go back and look at it over and over and find something new each time. I'm also going to get Vincent Meylan's book on royal jewelry--The Queen's Jewels. I've heard good things about it. And I have Leslie Field and Suzy Menkes books on Windsor jewelry. I enjoy seeing jewels from other countries though and the Meylan book is good at that.

There has actually been a good bit written comparing Alix and Diana--their immense popularity, cheating husbands, press adoration, common touch, fashion sense, beauty, not recognized as intellectuals, etc... There was an article years ago in Royalty magazine I think that did a comparison on the two. Luckily for Alix that while Bertie cheated he was never unkind to her (based on the conduct of the times--now we'd look at cheating period as unkind) the way Charles apparently was. The two realized their differences and established a strong relationship after some rocky points and doted on their family.

Alix was the First Lady of the England.  Edward VII never forgot it and never let anyone else forget it!

From what I have read and studied he loved Alix in a way that he loved no one else.  Alix was his wife, the mother of his children and consort.  The others were just diversion and confidantes from which he developed deep loving and sometimes sexual friendships.  The majority of his "conquests" were married women!  

Edward VII had no desire to get rid of or marginalize Alix.  She was his Queen!

Some of Alexandra's pics are really hot, absolutely un-Victorian...

Hello,
Could anyone confirm the identity of this gentleman ?
The CDV is pencilled on the back "brother of Christian IX"



Thanks !
