I found this labeled as Marie of Hesse, future empress of Russia; is it really her?

About the first posted I don't think that the lady portrayed is the Empress... or perhaps very young...
I wonder which event was in the second one? Really lovely

I didn't think it looked much like her either, but I was curious to see what other people thought.

Hi everyone. Can anyone post some info about Marie of Hesse and by Rhine, who was Marie Alexandrovna when  she married Alexander II? I really want to know about her personality. Thanks!
You are filled with anguish
For the suffering of others
And no one's grief
Has ever passed you by
You are relentless
Only towards yourself
Forever cold and pitiless
But only if you could look upon
Your Own sadness From a distance
Oh, how you would pity yourself
How sadly you would we

I wonder - do you create a new topic to focus attention on your question or just don't see the proper topic near at hand? I merged the threads, please do a search before starting  ANY topic.
Thanks for understanding.

I'm sorry, I think I'm searching wrong then, because nothing comes up when I do. Sorry again to make a fuss.
