Hm, I'm not aware of anything in the Pauline Law to cover such a situation.

This is pretty much what happened in France in 1316 and again in 1328. When Louis X died in 1316 he left daughters and a pregnant wife. His brother Philip became regent pending the birth. The child was a boy and technically reigtned for a matter of days as John I the Posthumous before dying (rumours of foul play). Philip then succeeded as Philip V in the normal way. He died in 1322, leaving only daughters, and was succeeded by the third brother as Charles IV. Charles then died in 1328 leaving daughters and a pregnant wife, and his male line cousin, Philip of Valois, became regent. The child was a girl and Valois succeeded as Philip VI.

When Alexander of Greece died in 1920, leaving a pregnant wife, there seems to have been no question of a regency as the marriage was treated as morganatic.

I don't see Mikhail as beeing all that ambitious. Had Nicholas died in autumn 1900, I think Mikhail would have been content to be regent had the child been a boy.

Indeed...but after Alix found out Alexis was ill, then  Michale becomes a worry again...In that she knew her son could die at any time...having seen others do so from the family disease....so all in all she had about 6 weeks without this worry.....the weeks between AN's  birthday and the diagnoses .  Even without the war and the revolution ,that branch of the family was going to lose the throne  ... Her situation  had been hopeless for years already...

I think that Michael as regent for the unborn child would have made sense.  Then when Anastasia was born in 1901, Michael would have become Tsar as he was already Tsarevich.

Of course had Nicholas died in 1901 then Alexei would never have been born.  What status would that have given Alexandra?  Would she be considered Dowager Empress but her daughters would not have precedence. 

She would have been a sort of "bump in the road" between Nicholas and Michael and Dowager Empress Marie would still be the mother of the reigning Emperor.  Marie would then take precedence over Michael's future wife (I am sure they would have found one for him as soon as they could) and Alexandra would have "retired" into obscurity?

Given her reluctance to carry out the duties of an Empress, Alexandra might not have been too sorry to retire into obscurity!

Perhaps she had a reluctance to carry out the duties of Empress, but the duties of Regent seemed to suit her very well.  She took hold right away when Nicholas was at Stavka.

I believe she would have been a tigress if Nicholas had died and Anastasia was a boy.  I think she might have even tried to be regent for Olga if the Pauline Laws of succession could have been changed.

But I know that we are way off topic here, so I will stop posting about this now.  :-)

Alixz is quite correct. You can NOT just grab photos off of the internet without the permission of the owner of the photo.  I have deleted the hermann-historica photo as this photo was being sold at auction, and you clearly do NOT have the legal right to copy the photo here unless you got permission first.

This is a serious issue and I have a legal obligation to enforce copyright laws that apply internationally.

Thank you for your consideration.

Instead of posting the photo itself, why not post a link to the auction or site where you found it? That way APTM members will have the opportunity to click through and see it without violating copyright.
