Former Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna, widow of Alexander III, is said to be in "precarious health," according to an Associated Press dispatch.
Marie, 81, is the younger sister of the late Queen Mother Alexandra.
She has been in "poor health" for several months now and her strength is "ebbing daily." Marie resides in a villa outside Copenhagen, where members of her family visit her each day.
