What color were Alexei's eyes? Reading all your posts they must were blue, as the ones of
his parents and sisters. A question more someone posted one day that Marie Feodorovna had
brown eyes... Is it true?

According to OTMAA's French teacher, Monsieur Gilliard, Alexei had "large grey-blue eyes like his mother".

And about Maria Fyodorovna: Yes, I believe it is true. The portraits that I have seen of her show her with brown eyes.

Yes, I wonder if he had most similarest colour eyes as Tatiana's. Count Voeikov decribes his eyes, and look from them, that it was something amazing. I am so sorry that I hadn't ever met him.  :-(
