It was natural, even though the Vladimir family was next in line for the throne, both Alexander III and Marie did not trust their intentions nor their loyalty. Kyrill's mother Miechen was one of the least favourites of the family according to Alexander III.

I don't have her diary. My guess is that he is not related to Karl Rove...

It was a joke and pun on the name.  :)

Both MF and Alicky could be very warm and kind if they chose to, but they could also be bossy. It is sad that people saw mostly the other side in the case of Alicky, MF was more diplomatic in her dealings with people.

Yes. Alix was "Aunt Alix" to Alicky. She was more big hearted than MF.

Alix was always Alix , despite her children there she was "Motherdear".
But the mystery Karl is still not solved for me

I don't have MF's diaries right now at hand but I remember that Rothe seemed was an old Danish friend, at least the editors of the Russian version of the diaries described him so.

Alix was "Aunt Alix" to her nieces, both Alicky and Ella called her by that name (not to mention Missy who has a chapter on her in her bio). Yes, both Alix and Minny use "motherdear" to their own children (Minny also extented an invitation to Alicky to call her "Motherdear" in one of her letters to her son Nicky.).

That would make sense. They were devoted to their Danish friends.

I bought the russian version, and a friend (which I paid) translated it for me.
