Queen Olga of Greece with her daughters

Marlene A. Eilers Koenig collection
A nice maternal pose: Queen Olga of the Hellenes with her two daughters, Princess Alexandra and Princess Marie. Olga was born Grand Duchess Olga Constantinova of Russia. Both her daughters married back in the Romanov family. Alexandra was the wife of Grand Duke Paul, and Marie married Grand Duke George

This is an interesting picture of the ill-fated Alexandra...usually she is pictured from the side..I've never seen her full face before this much so that I did a double take to see if it was really Alexandra...Regards

Looks like Princess Sophie to me instead of Princess Alexandra.

Hi i came from APF and i must to say i love your Blog.

About the picture i must agree with the anonymous. That s not princess Alexandra but Princess Sophie nee Prinzessin von Preussen.

Thanks for the wonderful Images and info!
