Alexandra Feodorovna / Re: Alexandra as Empress and Mother
« on: April 27, 2008, 04:59:21 PM »
From all I've read, it seems that she was an excellent mother (more 'hands-on' than most in her position.) However, I have seen pictures (an unfortunately I did not include any) where the children are all wearing necklaces. I believe these to perhaps be icons they wore daily. Does anyone have any more info on what these were? There are a few beach pictures of Alexei with one of these necklaces on. Could someone please elaborate on this? Is this a common tradition in the Orthodox faith?

The Alexander Palace / Re: A Question Regarding The Alexander Park
« on: April 01, 2007, 08:22:25 PM »
I'm not sure if this question belongs here, but can anyone tell me how to locate the Alexander Palace on "Google Earth"? I have tried to locate these extraordinary places and palaces on the search engine, but the Alexander palace is one I can't find?!? I do see the "Egyptian Gates" though. Is the palace near this? I can also locate the Catherine Palace. Please anyone help!

Have a most blessed Easter.
