Alexei's wife?
« on: March 08, 2006, 08:28:29 PM »
This is a BIG IF but if the revolution didnt happen or he was placed on the throne and he would need an heir to the throne who do you think would they have arranged or chosen to marry him ?

Yeah, I think it would have probably been Elizabeth of Greece. I wish I'd lived in that time!

I can't understand on any level why it would be Sofka Dolgoruki--what would be advantageous from their marriage? And how could a tsarevitch marry anyone lower than a princess? Frankly, I think she was only trying to draw attention to herself by making such a claim. The idea that the discussion of their marriage would have even been approached at that time is also ┬ásuspicious--Alexei was 14 and Sofka 11 at the time of the Revolution--far too young in my opinion for the discussion of marriage. Both had quite a few years before that would have been a worthy conversation. Putting aside Sofka, I firmly believe that Alexei's marriage would have been politically, materially or economically beneficial and undoubtedly to another royal. I assume that it would be one of his numerous cousins, thereby strengthening ties between royal families, but I've always considered Princess Ileana of Romania in particular a contender--they were only a few years apart after all. I also happen to like her quite a bit so I may just be exercising favortism.  ;)

Wasnt it rumored that he might have married Princess Lleana (SP?) of Romania?

Like I said previously about Princess Ileana and any potential marriage, they were probably still too young at the time for the subject to be broached--Alexei was 14 and Ileana just 9 in 1918. I think she would have made an excellent tsarina.

I am pretty doubtful it would be Sofka.

Tough question---I recall hearing from someone or reading somewhere that N&A liked the idea of his marrage to Ileana.

Is this something true or am I just losing my mind?

I've never heard that, but no doubt the Romanians would have been pleased with such an arrangement after the effort they made to unite Olga and Carol (which didn't work).

That's true, it would be the second chance for them, wouldn't it?
I think Ileana and Alexei would have been a better match for eachother in compairison to Olga and Carol anyway.

I never said that. I said the Romanians would be pleased, I never mentioned Alix's reaction. Frankly Alix wasn't that happy with the first arrangement--I think her feelings on a second one would be rather similiar, although she could have of course changed her mind. Please actually read what I've written before quoting and posting just to raise your post count.

As in Elisabeth of Romania? She was 24 at the time of the Revolution--a bit of a problem isn't it? As for Mary, Princess Royal, she was 22--evidently not a possibility either.

Umm, no. She too old for him. by seven years.

I think,on basic history!

1. Alexei had a childish passion for Ileana by saying he'll marry her.

2. Alexei was good friends with Princess Olga and Elizabeth of greece.

So maybe (if had lived and etc....) he would have married one of those three.
