Do you really see there any resemblance with portrait of Alexandra Feodorovna?? I don´t think so...quality is not so good as Angeli and portrait of "your" lady is ten (maybe twenty) years older...

I agree with others comments!
But, I've never saw the portrait of Alix by Angeli! It's so beautiful! Does anyone have it in better quality, please?

It really is an impressing portrait painted in a superb quality! Judging by the coiffure and style of the dress I'd say it was painted in the 1890ies.

If there is no signature whatsoever it will be hard to find out who your lady was... I may say that she is definitely no member of the Grand Ducal Hessian House (though I have to agree: the style is very much the one of Angeli's canvas of Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna)

Nonetheless: it might be a prescious possession. You should contact a professional. He/she might be able to help you identifying the painter/background.

She resembles Caroline's daughters indeed. It could be the eldest, Caroline Landgravine of Hesse-Homburg. There are no signs of a royal descend of that lady. No crown no hermine or such. Hard to say.......

I found this photo. And they look a little bit like members of the Hessen family. But who are they??

Thanks!

One of the girls does resemble Princess Irene of Hesse, but the photo is of 1867-1868 years, and Irene was born in 1866 as we know.

Personally I don't think they are Royals.

I have tried thousands of times to find the Hessiches-Staatsarchiv Dramstdat photo gallery. But I can't.  I know the link of the website but I can't find the photo archive there. Could someone post the direct link to the photoarchive please? Thank you very much! =)

It say "Princess of Denmark" - the other word means "Ducky" nickname of Victoria Melita. The IDs are often wrong - I think that she is a lady-in-waiting due to her simple dress
