Alexandra suffered from complications during her second pregnancy - I believe it was eclampsia. I don't know why she didn't have better prenatal care, as pre-eclampsia is a known complication and is treated with bed rest. This could have saved her and in saving her, could have spared her family much grief.

The reason of her eclampsia were weak heart and kidneys, and this fact was discovered only after her death and autopsy.

After Alexandra & Paul married did he accompany her to the family get togethers in Denmark?
Or did they as a couple attend any of them?

I just found out that GD Paul and GDss Alexandra attendet a gathering in 1889, the same year they got married, and her brother George finished his education in Denmark. Vicky (Empress Friedrich) also attended the gathering along with Princess Sophie who was engaged to Crown Prince Konstantin.


As for Pavel and Alexandra's visits to Denamrk, then they had been there in August-September 1889, just after their honeymoon in Ilinskoe, estate of GD Sergei. Then they visited Denamrk in 1890, after the birth of their daughter.

It is such a shame Alexandra Georgievna passed away so young.  She seemd to have a kind and gentle temperment.  With her deep friendship with Ella, perhaps she could have been a good friend to Alix in her early years in Russia.
In regards to the post with the large composite photo/etching of King Christian's extended family:  Where is Queen Louise?  Am I just missing her in that vast group of people?

I know what ifs are waste of time but do you think the death of Alexandra made Paul, Ella and Serge distant to Maria and Dmitri in some ways or just I think that way?...

How difficult that must have been for poor Paul...life or death for either his child or his wife.  I am sure this in some way effected his realtionship with his children.  Maybe this spilled over to the relationship Ella and Sergei too.

I decided to open a thread for Grand Duke Paul Alexandrovich. Oddly enough, it seemed we had threads for his first wife Grand Duchess Alexandra Georgievna, his children Maria and Paul and second family the Paley's. But no thread for the Grand Duke himself.

I'll start by posting some photos of Paul as a child.







I absolutely love the last two.

Paul did not have a son Paul. His sons were Dmitri and Vladimir.

Thanks Lisa. I didn't notice the typo. I meant Dmitri not Paul.
