The Alix we are talking about was born on December 1, 1844, in the Yellow Palace, Copenhagen.


I read somehwere that the "Yellow Palace" was not really a true palace at all but more of a very very large townhouse in the most excellent part of town. 

Can someone please post a picture of the Yellow Palace.

Thanks!

Wait a second, she was talking about Queen Alexandra. To my knowledge I never heard of Queen Alexandra being nickname or called Alix for short. The only person I know of that was Alix was Alix of Hesse fourth daughter of Alice and Louis. Anyway those photos are new to me thanks for sharing them Kity. Queen Alexandra.

Queen Alexandra was always called Alix by her family. She was named after her aunt by marriage, Grand Duchess Alexandra Nicholaievna, daughter of Nicholos I.
I think you can find many many pictures of a young Alix on the Windsor and Danish RF threads.

The Yellow Mansion (as it's called in Denmark) where Alexandra grew up.

Hey Kity I am sorry I do not know where the photos are or have them if i see them anywhere i will post them right here. I have seen them over a year ago so I have to find them. It may not have been taken on the same year but I remeber reading it was sometime around the early 1880's. I think the photo you posted Kity may have been taken during the time of when Alexander III and their children were there. I am sorry I do not have the photos or know where they are. :(
