IMO, it is a drawing of a wedding, probably N&A's. Aside from the issue of the crowns, N&A both wore full length, ermine-trimmed gold robes like this one during the coronation ceremonies:

I need your expert help over here =D

Someone posted the next illustration in another forum about royalty. She said it is Nicky and Alicky s wedding...but i clearly see she s wrong



Who are these peopleż. The groom looks to much like Alexander II

Why do you see that other poster was wrong? That's a wedding drawing of Nicholas II and Alexandra Fedorovna. Empress MF is behind them (at left). Of course there is a resemblance of Nicholas II to Alexander II, after all the late was his grandfather.

It is?!

Well...the groom doesnt look like Nicholas (i aint got a pretty good eye, but i can see clearly,  the groom has a clean chin...Nicholas didnt had bearded chin in the moment of his wedding?) , He s not wearing the red hussar uniform..Alicky is not wearing the Gold robe. The lady behing looks like Minnie but, i also thought that would be a young Miechen


Those indicatives makes me doubt

Can anyone tell me where these were taken? I think I know a lot of them, I just want to be sure. Sorry I have to post links, but my computer crashed, and is very slow. They'll be more, I just didn't want to post them all at once.

Here are three of them, I might be able to ID two others, but will have to look further:

I made a mistake on the location of this one (below), it should be Russia, not Crimea:

Can't find the others right now either, but hope the information will turn up.

I was just thinking that because the person's hair is as curly as Alexei's when he was young. I didn't notice the ribbon. :-[

Here's a clip from a 1901 visit to Denmark-
http://royalromania.wordpress.com/2009/03/18/tsar-nicholas-ii-of-russia-in-denmark-1901-film/

In the beginning still photo and at the end I think it shows Alexandra.  I wonder who the other ladies are?  I thought the one w/ her was Dowager Empress Maria at first, but on second look maybe it's Queen Alexandra.

Can anyone identify the people in this clip?

I don't think a link to this has been posted here before, if so my apologies.

I see exactly what you mean. I'm not sure either.
