Did Alexandra regret renouncing her Lutheran faith?
« on: October 02, 2011, 10:31:45 PM »
I have often wondered if there is any record of Alexandra expressing regret over changing her faith.  Of course, she loved her husband and children, but with Alexander III's early demise, her own troubles conceiving a son, and Alexei's suffering, I wonder if she felt that God was punishing her for her switch of faith.  Her letters to Nicholas in October 1893 so clearly lay out her perceived path of suffering if she did renounce Lutheranism.  She even told him it would be difficult for them to be happy together if God didn't bless their (Orthodox) marriage.

never. She was a hugely devout and devoted Pravoslavnaya for the rest of her life.
