On a very light note, their daughter Olga certainly had the Romanov look. That picture of her Mandie posted reminds me of photos of otma alot, particularly Tatiana. This affair was however, rather inappropriate, given that it was sort of flaunted to the poor Empress. It wasn't a casual affair of which Alexander II had many, and could have had many more, it was a true passionate relationship. Certainly in their youth, and slightly beyond Alexander had loved his wife, it was a love match. It is understandable, that given the fact she could not, due to health and the birth of many children, perform her marital dutuies for Alexander, he sought solace elesewhere. But this wasn't just solace, it was a major affair. You can understand how he felt, as his life might be taken from him anyday, but as well, your feelins must go to Marie Alexandrovna, a good woman who had enough suffering.

I have never heard of that book, so it must be rare. She was one of his daughters, I think the longest lived one from his marriage with Princess Dolgurukaya.

A news item in the London Times today reveals that seven explicit love letters written by Alexander II to his mistress Ekaterina Dolgorukaya were put up for auction in Berlin on behalf of their owner - an unnamed French aristocrat.

Here's the link to the online edition:

From an old book, hence the quality. And as always I blame on my scanner...

This has probably already been answered somewhere, sorry, but are there any descendants still living from Alexander and Dolgorukaya?

Two dozen love letters of the couple were auctioned in Paris last week,for 10.000 euro (only!),part of thousands of letters between the love birds,who had their own "french " version for the word/act sex:"bingerle" and according to the letters,you see that word used quite often,not to say in every letter....a very passionate pair.

Wow, that's pretty graphic, considering it was the 19th century...

That is quite out there.  I wonder what Empress Maria Alexandrovna would think if she saw them?  They are really crude, but I don't think they should be auctioned though.  They are private and should be kept that way.
