The love story between Charlotte/Alexandra and her Niki seems very sweet and tender. It´s a funny thing: the two empress named Alexandra Feodorovna had the most strong feelings to their tsars, both of them named Niki. It must had been hard for Alexandra to accept the appearance in her marriage of Barbara Nelidova (any portrait of her?) but Niki was really kind to his wife, not as his son Alexander when he hurted so much poor Maria Alexandrovna showing clearly the passionate crush on Katia Dolgoruki...

It is also interesting how Nicholas I, Nicholas II and both Alexandra Feodorovnas loved the Alexander Palace, Tsarskoe Selo.   It was certainly the favourite home of both couples.   Both those Tsars invested much imagination and funding into the development of both Alexander Palace and Alexander Park.

Nicholas I and Alexandra Feodorovna (I)'s love for the Alexander Palace is best expressed in the wonderful oil painting commissioned to celebrate their 25th - Silver - Wedding Anniversary - Tsarskoe Selo Carousel by Horace Vernet.

Both Tsars and their wives knew heartbreak in the Alexander Palace.    Nicholas I and Alexandra Feodorovna lost their dear daughter, also, Alexandra, while residing at the Alexander Palace.   Nicholas II and Alexandra (II) lived with the constant heartbreak for their ill son and heir.

Of a rather more tenuous nature - Nicholas I died, worn down and mentall destroyed by the destruction of the Russian army the Crimean War.   The collapse of his troops in the First World War directly impacted on the demise of Nicholas II.

I know that the name of Alexandra was close to Alix's name but when taking her new name upon her conversion to Orthodoxy, did the fact that there was a previous consort of a Tsar Nicholas play a part in the selection of  'Alexandra Feodorovna'?

In the book "The Camera and the Tsars" by Charlotte Zeepvat is a photo of this tsarina in her old days.

Another photo of the empress in her old days:

Are there more photos of the tsarina known ?
