Don't you think she had a resemblance to Alexander II's first wife, Empress Maria Alexandrovna? Something in appearance...

Lovely portrait, thank you for posting! I'm glad this thread is active again - I've always found him a very complex and interesting Emperor

Alexander II mourning the death of Maria Alexandrovna.



While I believe he was still very fond of her near the end of her life, I still think such an image is highly romanticized.

My best guess is those children are Lina and Nixa.
