Agree with Eleanor whole heartedly. Even my Grandfather who is very skeptical about female rulers thinks she's an excellent role model even for young girls. He had me do a project on her when I was younger.
How about Maria of Portugal, Isabella of Castille's daughter?

I'm terribly fond of Queen Adelaide, so I agree with you there, Kakafrana. Ella (junior) of Hesse and Irene of Prussia?

Both photos were taken 1911. No court dress photographs were taken, to my knowledge in 1910. Just the formal shoot.

Anya was rejected by her husband and found Nicholas as the next male figure to her. It was natural for her to develop a 'schoolgirl crush' on him, even if there was no chance in a relationship sexually.

Hmm, the A.V incidents are incredibly shaded. This book does throw some light on it. Yes, one of the main reasons Rasputin was so hated by the gentry was because of his huge influence on Alix. If he disliked a minister, heaven help the poor fellow. One of Alix's downfalls was relying on him so much, I think.

I suppose that's the fun of colouring, not having to use exact colours but making up your own :)

Ortipo, I have found this picture which is very similar to the coloured one you posted on Ally's wonderful site:

one that is incredibly alike but smaller:

and the one you posted but in b&w:

Hope this is of help. Also, having looked back over staella's gallery, I don't think the colouring is one of hers but maybe from one of the earlier colourists on the forum? I'm afraid I don't have the patience to scroll through all the topics to find it, lol.
