Maybe either yourself or somebody you're aware might be able to double check this. If you check the above picture and the description from the Library of Congress, it identifies the two people as Marie and Carol of Romania. Carol was born in 1893 and Marie was born in 1900, but those children do not remotely look like they are seven years apart in age. Just a suggestion, but far more likely candidate for the little girl is Elizabeth, their sister, who was born in 1894. Maybe you might shed some light on the matter. Another candidate is Marie and her younger brother Nicholas although does anybody else find that the two children look more like Carol and Elizabeth?

At the very least, who represent the Portuguese king at the coronation of Czar Alexander II in 1855 and who represent the Russian Emperor at King Pedro V's coronation in 1851?

I personally never much of anything between the Kingdom of Portugal and the Russian Empire until the Revolution of October 5 1910 in Portugal and also Czar Nicholas II reaction to that revolution since he was obviously aware of it. Also anecdotes about any interaction between the various members of the Houses of Braganza and the Romanov.

Were the two closely related? Through Pedro's paternal family perhaps?

The most recent common ancestor was through King Pedro V's maternal line. King Pedro V and Queen Stephanie would be 7th cousins through their most recent common ancestors, Georg II, Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt (born 17 March 1605 in Darmstadt; died 11 June 1661 in Darmstadt) and his wife Sophia Eleonore of Saxony (born November 23, 1609 in Dresden; died 2 June 1671 in Darmstadt).

Georg II, Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt → Elisabeth Amalie of Hesse-Darmstadt → Maria Sofia of the Palatinate → João V of Portugal → Pedro III of Portugal → João VI of Portugal → Pedro I of Brazil → Maria II of Portugal → Pedro V of Portugal
Georg II, Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt → Ludwig VI, Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt → Ernst Ludwig, Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt → Ludwig VIII, Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt → Ludwig IX, Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt → Amalie of Hesse-Darmstadt → Karl, Grand Duke of Baden → Josephine of Baden → Stephanie of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen



Just wondering, but what if any dealing did either King Pedro V or Queen Stephanie had during their lifetime with members of the Romanov dynasty?
