Ops !!! Next time I should put my glasses on ! I read "Alexander II" instead of "Alexander I". :P And I agree, Alexander I´s favourite sister was Catherine, the later formidable Queen of Württemberg.

Catherine, of course.
Alexander was really infatuated with his sister Catherine. All the gossip about an "unnatural" relationship between Alexander and Catherine reveals how much they loved each other.

I remember reading somewhere that there were even some implications of incest between the two, since they were very very close... No one knows of course.

Maybe Chaterina.I saw one Russian serial "Адьютанти любви".In this serial Alexander favourit sister is Chaterina beacuse she is younges and pretty girl.
