Possibly Olga, if only because there is only one child in the photo. After TN was born, there are mostly shots of all the children born up until then.

That was taken in Germany in 1910, so I would guess it's one of their Hessian (or Greek) cousins. I don't know for sure, though.

It looks like Crown Prince Olav of Norway, later King Olav V of Norway. He was the son of King Haakon VII of Norway and Queen Maud. Queen Maud was a first cousin of Alexandra Feodorovna and King Haakon VII was a first cousin of Nicholas II. Queen Maud was the sister of King George V of United Kingdom.

The child is one of Grand Duke Ernst's sons. Either Donatus or Louis (not to sure about the youngest son's name). I'm pretty sure the eldest.

It's Georg Donatus (1906-1937). His brother, Prince Louis wasn't  born until 1908. So, all the subjects in the photo died tragic deaths, because Georg Donatus died in the plane crash at Ostend which also killed his wife and two sons.

Hey, this photo has been labeled Alix, but it looks more like Irene to me. Can anyone tell me for sure who it is?
