To me this is 100% Alexandra Feodorovna - but the archive has identified it Elizaveta Feodorovna (I think Ella took the photo and gave it to the Tsar with her dedication - still it is Alix). We had a little fight :)

Your opinions?



I donīt know, but why would the picture would be signed with Ellaīs name?...... On the other hand itīs a picture for Nicky, so it could be Alix..... and on the other hand why would be Ella giving Nicky a photo of Alix in 1896?

As a remembrance of their trip to Ilinskoye - as she wrote above.
I am interested in your opinion about the face - the hands, the ear, it is the Empress

I think so. I can read ' A merry Xmas to you dear Nicky, Ella 1896'. So I'd guess that Ella took the photo and gave it to Nicky. 'Sunny' definitely.

I'm starting to think it is George. KR does look older in the photo so it would make more sense.

Not at alll. 0 resemblance, in fact the boy posted looks more like GD Dimitri Pavlovich (im not saying its him but i see some resemblance) than young Nicholas.

and as i said before, the photograph technic and how it looks it modern than 1878`s pictures. I d say the picture of that boy is from early 1900s.

it is similar Dimitri Pavlovich, if you have certainty you can write? I send a photo of the empress, coming from same album , you know the child? thanks

I think the child with Maria Fyodorovna could be Grand Duchess Xenia.

I have found online, these two images identified like grand duke Alexander Mikailovich ( husband of grand duchess the Xenia)  and Anna Vyrubova.   it is possible? I have of the doubts. Thank you

Those ebay dealers sometimes are really annoying with their "rare" photos from "reliable source". They found some old Russian photo and at once claimed about their Romanov origin. And some buyers easily swallowed the bait. I don't mean you, Mishaxenia, but those who bid for such photos.

i know this seller and i ve helped a few times in put right labels to his/her pictures. At least he/she is nice and accept her/his mistakes not like Hephaiste who sells in it majority, fake pictures about royalty and when you try to correct him/ her he/she gets pissed off.
