They suppose it´s her. From the bequest of an asserted godchild (Maria von Schrader) of Maria Pawlowna, daughter of Feodorovna.

Maria Feodorovna was quite an interesting figure though she is not one of my favorite Romanovs. She was not as patriotic and dedicated to her new country as her mother -in-law.
she enjoyed lavish life and demanded 1000 000 roubles a year to maintain her court that was even more than the yearly budget of st.peterburgin this way she drained the country`s budget.
what is more, she treated badly her daughter-in-law, elizaveta and anna due to the fact that her mmother -in-law selected these princesses as wives for alexander and constantine.M.F. superceded empress elizaveta who was to remain in the shadow.
besides, she was quite manipulative when she wanted to get something from her son alexander. aware of the feeling of guilt that tormented her son after the death of paul, she used the death of her husband as a tool to force her son to do what she wanted.  she kept paul`s bloody shirt in a special container and whenever alexander was obstinate she put this container in front of him to remind him of the role that he played in march 1801.
this makes me think that alexander was not her favorite, it was nikolay.thee have been many speculations as to who was his father.they say,it was one of the courtiers,13 years younger.it was maria feodorovna`s great love so she transfered  her feelings on nikolay

Very interesting, thank you! And who was her favourite daughter? Did she suffer a lot when Helena and Alexandra died so early?
And when he shall die, // Take him and cut him out in little starres, // And he will make the Face of heaven so fine, // That all the world will be in Love with night, // And pay no worship to the Garish Sun.

Different sources give different information as to who her favorite daughter was. As for the death of Alexandra, empress Elizaveta describes this event in her letters  to her mother, Amalia of BAden:

 22.03/03.04 1801

We learned about the death of poor Grand Duchess Alexandra. I can`t even express the pain that I felt. The grief was universal...So young, so beautiful, such a wonderful child, and to die at the prime of her youth! I can`t believe it still. She loved life, she was so full of inner power, Poor Alexandra, I can`t imagine her to be dead! She died 9 or 10 days after giving birth. Another blow to the poor Empress! But this horribe event didn`t affect her as much as we expected: after the death of the Emperor she oftern repeated: "Aexandra will die,too"...Anyway her conditin hasn`t worsened.


Alexandra died at the time of Paul`s death . T

a letter to Amalia of Baden, 25.09/07.10.1803 on the death of Grand Duchess Elena PAvlovna

We have just received news about the death of the Poor Grand Duchess Elena. Although we had been prepared for her death, we were devastated by it. Poor Empress! God knows how she will bear this disaster! poor Grand Duchesses seem to be doomed. ... A week ago the Empress experienced another grief although it was not as big as this one. The late Emperor Paul had an illegitimate child, a girl born 3 months after his death. The Empress took care of the child who turned 2. She got very attached to her but the poor child died a week ago when new teeth started to grow.

Thank you so much violetta! Which information were given about her favourite daughter? I guess Maria or Katharina...
