The Grand Ducal Crypt?  I believe it's not far from the Peter and Paul Fortress--Alexandra and other grand dukes and duchesses were reburied there in 1911.

Slightly different version of Christina Robertson's 1840 portrait of Alexandra.

I don't know.  Maybe someone else does, though?

Alexandra Nikolaevna embroidering, ca. 1835.  If anyone knows for sure who the artist is, please let me know.

I found this portrait as Alexandra Nikolaevna.  I'm not sure if it really is her (if it isn't, there is a definite resemblance), but if it is, I would love to know the name of the artist.  What do you guys think?

You know too well how much thankful I am of your magnificent contributions to Alexandra's memory, Dru~!!
Still, many, many, many thanks for this divine portrait!
To me, it looks so much like her... new hairstyle that's why it leaves room for doubt that she isn't this lady.
However, it is really Alexandra to me. The whole face, most especially the eyes:  an unmistakable resemblance there ~

Amazing colored fotos  by the most wonderful Yelena Aleksandrovna. Endless thank you very much!

That portrait was done by artist Ivan Winberg, but I'm not sure on the year.  Maybe someone else knows, though.
