I read that Alexandra Pavlovna may have proposed the design for the red, white, and green Hungarian flag.  I wonder if there's any truth to this, or if it's just a myth?  :-\

Can anyone tell me where Alexandra Pavlovna died (i.e., which palace)?  I'd be much obliged...

According to Burke's Royal Families of the World vol. 1, she died at Buda, so I assume she died in Buda Castle in Budapest, the official residence of Archduke Josef as Palatine of Hungary (this would have been the baroque palace damaged by fire in 1810 and by the fighting during the Hungarian revolution of 1848].

Thank you for your answer, CountessKate.  Some places say that she died in Vienna, and others say that she died in Buda, so I've never been completely sure.

Alexandra Pavlovna in the Hungarian costume, of which she grew very fond.  Download for full size.

Alexandra Pavlovna as archduchess of Austria, ca. 1800.  Rather unflattering portrait, I think...

Very man-like I'd say. And with a certain resemblance to her father, Emperor Pavel. His daughters were not beauty stars actually, but sons - except Konstantin - were very handsome.

But weren't Elena and Ekaterina were supposed to have been more attractive than their sisters?  

Also, I was unable to find the name of the artist--do either of you know who it was?

I think all Pavel's daughters were not really pretty or beautiful, though Ekaterina was praised for her prettiness but it's more due to her character - lively, emotional and fussy.

I found it in Google's Cultural Institute, but it's originally from the Slovak National Museum :)
