just how private was the mauve room to alexandra? was it almost an extra living quarter with people coming in and out or like an addition to her private rooms?

She did receive quite a few people there.

I was under the impression the mauve room was mostly private. I thought the formal reception room and occasionally the Palisander room served for official audiences.

I thought near the end, before the Revolution, she received ministers there.

yes thats what i thought , i thought that it was more of one of her private rooms, if so, was the maple room used for audiences with others, or was this more of a private quarter?
