I personally wouldn't trust the Radziwill accounts because she mainly spread gossip and is therefore not a reliable source. I would check with some other books before drawing conclusions about the relationship between Alexandra and her sisters, particularly Ella.
I'm back on my bull****.

Thank you for your kind reply Marty. I was just a little disturbed after reading it, although I know for certain that the two sisters undoubtedly loved each other. ANd i don't think Alix felt any sort of rivalry with Ella.  :)

Sorry for the interruption but when actually was the last time Alix and Ella saw each other? Is there a date and a place? Thanks in advance!

The date and the place are 1 December 1916, Tsarskoe Selo. Ella came from Moscow the day before. THe 2 sisters had a difficult conversation about Rasputin and the general situation. Their last contact was some congratulations of Elisaveta Feodorovna for Easter 1918, if I am not wrong.

Thanks a lot! So they didn't see each other for nearly two years till their death. Sad. Can't imagine it with my sister.

Thanks for the date - I tried to figure it out, but with no success.

Ella : " Perhaps it would have been better if I had not come ''
Alix : (shortly and bitterly) ''Yes''.

And then they parted coldly.Their last farewell was unfair to their love that sisters shared from early childhood. Later, Ella crying said : '' She threw me out like a dog! ..Poor Nicky..Poor Russia ''. Ella wanted to open sisters' eyes, but Alix was persuaded in her opinions and very stubborn.
