About Alexandra Feodorovna, Empress of All the Russias

Wikipedia: Deutsch, English

Alexandra Feodorovna (6 June 1872 – 17 July 1918) born Princess Alix Viktoria Helene Luise Beatrix of Hesse and by Rhine, was Empress of Russia as the spouse of Nicholas II, the last ruler of the Russian Empire. She was given the Christian name and patronymic Alexandra Feodorovna upon being received into the Russian Orthodox Church and—having been put to death along with her immediate family while in Bolshevik captivity in 1918—was canonized in 2000 as Saint Alexandra the Passion Bearer.

A granddaughter of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, Alexandra was one of the most famous royal carriers of the haemophilia disease. Her reputation for influencing her husband's resistance to the surrender of autocratic authority over the country and her known faith in the Russian mystic, Grigori Rasputin, severely damaged her popularity and that of the Romanov monarchy in its final years.
