She did look amazingly like her father the Emperor Paul;  so she was not exactly a beauty. She was a tragic one though, as were many Alexandras in the Romanov Family. Anyway, her marriage was one of the only ones of a Romanov to a Hapsburg correct? What was done about the issue of Alexandra's religion in this case? Was she allowed to remain orthodox?

She was allowed to remain Orthodox, there was a strict rule for all Romanov brides to remain Orthodox after marrying some foreign Prince. BTW, in Hungary, in the estate of Alexandra's spouse, was built an orthodox church just for young Grand Duchess.

Thanks. I figured she must have, but then I wondered as the Hapsburgs were very Catholic, and they would have made a Protestant bride convert for sure.

In one picture where young Olga Alexandrovna holds some dolls and sits in a room of the palace, behind her is a portrait of Alexandra P, I believe. I think that is in Camera and the Tsars.

Hi,

Marvellous pictures!!!  Very rich.....

She is lovely;  she may not have been a beauty but was more a 'handsome' woman...

Yes, the resemblance is wonderful. It's interesting that all of Pavel's daughters loked more like him not like their pretty mother Maria Fedorovna. And at the same time such sons as Alexander I and Nicholas I inherited the charm of their mother.

She looks somewhat like her grandmother Catharine in these portraits as well.

I guess that was a special intention of the artist and so probably of Pavel and Maria Fedorovna - just to flatter to the strict grandmother Catherine.
