Czarina Alexandra full length portrait

Czarina Alexandra

Sold

Alexandra Feodorovna (6 June 1872 – 17 July 1918) was Empress of Russia with Nicholas II—the last ruler of the Russian Empire—from their marriage on 26 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917.

 

Originally Princess Alix of Hesse and by Rhine at birth, she was given the name and patronymic Alexandra Feodorovna when she converted and was received into the Russian Orthodox Church. She and her immediate family were all killed while in Bolshevik captivity in 1918, during the Russian Revolution. She was later canonized in 2000 in the Russian Orthodox Church as Saint Alexandra the Passion Bearer.

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

This is a 'one of a kind' original.  All moulds have been destroyed to ensure exclusivity.  The Czarina stands approximately 85cm tall (32 in) and comes complete with stand., underclothes and accessories.  Clothing is tailored & the doll can be undressed and dressed.

From her new owner: I can’t stop looking at the Czarina, she is so life like! She is even more beautiful than on the pictures, more beautiful than I had hoped!
Her eyes are so expressive, I can read the history of her life in it. Incredible, what a masterpiece! Worth every penny!
