The Dowager Empress Augusta declared that Alexandra was "frivolous" and vain. In Scotland, the press criticized Alexandra for wearing expensive frocks and refusing to wear British tweeds.
Alexandra refused to court the public because she believed that the Russian people automatically loved and revered their Emperor and Empress.
When she and Nicholas were traveling to Crimea by train, hundreds of peasants wore their best clothes and waited overnight to see the Imperial couple.
Nicholas went to the window and waved, but Alexandra refused to open the curtains and acknowledge the crowd. Dowager Empress Marie was furious that "[Alexandra] thinks the Imperial family should be 'above that sort of thing.
And yet, how often she complains of the public indifference toward her. It is your first duty to win their love and respect.
Here we do not need to earn the love of the people. The Russian people revere their Tsars as divine beings As far as Petersburg society is concerned, that is something which one may wholly disregard.
On 15 November , Alexandra gave birth to her eldest child and daughter, Olga , at the Alexander Palace. Many Russians and members of the Imperial family were disappointed in the sex of the child, but Nicholas and Alexandra were delighted with their daughter and doted on her.
The birth of Olga did not change Grand Duke George's position as Nicholas's heir presumptive. The Pauline Laws implemented by Tsar Paul I forbade women from taking the Romanov throne as long as any male Romanov was alive.
If Alexandra didn't bear a son, Nicholas's heirs would be his brothers and uncles. However, few worried because Alexandra was only 23, so she was expected to be able to bear a son soon.
A few months after giving birth to Olga, Alexandra was pregnant again. At the time of her coronation, she "nurs[ed] However, there were unfounded and malicious rumors in St.
Petersburg that Alexandra had become pregnant by a lover and aborted the baby to hide her infidelity. On 10 June , Alexandra gave birth to her second child and daughter, Tatiana.
Nicholas was overjoyed, but the members of his family were unhappy and worried. When she woke up from the chloroform, Alexandra saw the "anxious and troubled faces" around her and "burst into loud hysterics.
What will the nation say, what will the nation say? Nicholas's brother George said that he was disappointed not to have a nephew to relieve him of his duties as heir: "I was already preparing to go into retirement, but it was not to be.
On 26 June , Alexandra gave birth to her third child and daughter, Maria. The whole of Russia will be disappointed by this news.
Two weeks after Maria's birth, Nicholas's brother George died and Michael became the heir presumptive to the throne.
Courtiers flocked to Michael and treated him as the heir apparent, which distressed Alexandra. In October , Nicholas became ill with abdominal typhus and was confined to bedrest for five weeks.
The cabinet were forced to discuss what would happen if Nicholas would die. Alexandra was pregnant with Anastasia, and she insisted that she be named regent in the hope that she would bear a son.
However, Nicholas's ministers refused: If Nicholas died, Michael would became tsar. If Alexandra's baby was a boy, Michael would renounce the throne in his nephew's favor.
Alexandra was not satisfied, and she grew to distrust Nicholas's ministers for trying to "steal" her future son's inheritance.
On 18 June , Alexandra gave birth to Anastasia. Nicholas's sister, Grand Duchess Xenia, exclaimed, "My God! What a disappointment! Thanks to her nefarious influence our Emperor is doomed to catastrophe.
Alexandra and Nicholas turned to the occult in hopes of having a son. Shortly after Anastasia's birth, Grand Duchess Militza Nikolaevna introduced Alexandra to a mystic named Philippe Nizier-Vachot.
He was an unlicensed quack who claimed that he could use his magnetic powers to change the sex of a baby inside the womb.
Nicholas's mother Marie , sister Xenia , and sister-in-law Ella were alarmed and warned him and Alexandra to stay away from Philippe, but the Imperial couple didn't heed their advice.
In the end of , Alexandra seemed to have become pregnant again, and Philippe swore that she was carrying a boy. By the summer of , it was clear that the Empress was not pregnant.
Now we have suddenly learned that she is not pregnant, indeed that there never was any pregnancy, and that the symptoms that led to suppose it were in fact only anaemia!
In reality, Alexandra had had a molar pregnancy. On August 19 , she had suffered a discharge of "a spherical, fleshy mass the size of a walnut"  , which Dr.
Ott confirmed was a dead fertilized egg in the fourth week of gestation. To save face, the court physicians published a bulletin on 21 August claiming that Alexandra had "a straightforward miscarriage, without any complications.
In , Alexandra and Nicholas decided to sponsor the canonisation of Seraphim of Sarov. Before he left Russia, Philippe told them that Seraphim would grant Alexandra a son.
Seraphim was a monk in the Tambov region was had performed local miracles, but none of his so-called miracles were verified and he had been dead for seventy years.
The Metropolitan of Moscow reluctantly agreed to canonize the previously unknown saint. On 19 August, Alexandra and Nicholas bathed in the Sarova River in which Seraphim had once bathed and prayed that the sacred waters would bless them with a son.
In , Alexandra became pregnant. There was high anticipation for a son. Alexei's birth affirmed Nicholas and Alexandra's faith in Philippe.
In her diary, Nicholas's sister Olga wrote, "I am sure it was Seraphim who brought it about. Olga physically resembled her father, and she adored Nicholas.
She had a more distant relationship with Alexandra. Her letters to Olga include frequent reminders to mind her siblings: "Remember above all to always be a good example to the little ones"  and "Try to have a serious word with Tatiana and Maria about how they should conduct themselves towards God.
Alexandra was closest to her second daughter, Tatiana. Tatiana resembled Alexandra the most in terms of appearance and personality.
Nicholas' sister Xenia described "[Tatiana] and her mother are like as two peas in a pod! During the family's final months, Tatiana helped her mother by pushing her about the house in a wheelchair.
How did such an extraordinary idea get into your little head? Get it quickly out again. Anastasia physically resembled Alexandra, but her boisterous, mischievous personality was very different from her mother's.
She was dubbed the shvibzik, Russian for "imp. Alexandra doted on Alexei because he was her only son and the heir to the Russian Empire.
The children's tutor Pierre Gilliard wrote, "Alexei was the centre of a united family, the focus of all its hopes and affections.
His sisters worshiped him. He was his parents' pride and joy. When he was well, the palace was transformed. Everyone and everything in it seemed bathed in sunshine.
She feared that he would injure himself in tantrums, so she spoiled him and never punished him. Despite her fears of never bearing a son, Alexandra loved her daughters and called them her "little four-leaved clover.
However, these plans were delayed and canceled by the beginning of the Great War. Alexandra's health was never robust and her frequent pregnancies, with four daughters in six years and her son three years after, drew from her energy.
Her biographers, including Robert Massie, Carrolly Erickson, Greg King, and Peter Kurth, attribute the semi-invalidism of her later years to nervous exhaustion from obsessive worry over the fragile tsarevich, who suffered from hemophilia.
She spent most of her time in bed or reclining on a chaise in her boudoir or on a veranda. This immobility enabled her to avoid the social occasions that she found distasteful.
Alexandra regularly took a herbal medicine known as Adonis Vernalis in order to regulate her pulse. She was constantly tired, slept badly, and complained of swollen feet.
She ate little, but never lost weight. She may have suffered from Graves Disease hyperthyroidism , a condition resulting in high levels of the thyroid hormone, which can also result in atrial fibrillation , poor heartbeat and lack of energy.
On 12 August , Tsesarevich Alexei was born. He was heir apparent to the throne of Russia and the first and only son of Nicholas and Alexandra.
Shortly after his birth, the court doctors realized that he had haemophilia. After his umbilical cord was cut, his stomach bled for days and his blood didn't clot.
Alexandra's brother, Friedrich , and maternal uncle Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany , had died young of hemophilia. Alexandra's sister Princess Irene of Hesse and by Rhine and first cousin Princess Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg were also carriers of the hemophilia gene, and they had hemophiliac sons.
Alexandra felt immense guilt that she had passed down the disease to her son. Since the incurable illness threatened the sole son and heir of the emperor, the Crown decided to keep his condition secret from the Russian people.
They wanted to limit social instability because of uncertainty. At first, Alexandra turned to Russian doctors to treat Alexei.
Their treatments generally failed. Burdened with the threats to her son from any fall or cut, Alexandra turned toward religion for comfort.
She studied all the Orthodox rituals and saints, and spent hours daily praying in her private chapel for deliverance. Grigori Rasputin , a priest and mystic from Siberia, appeared to have a cure for her son and became powerful in court as a result.
Over time, Alexandra grew to believe that Rasputin was the only man who could save her son's life. If I am not there to protect you, you will lose your son The director of the national police told Alexandra that a drunk Rasputin had exposed himself at a popular Moscow restaurant and bragged that Nicholas gave him sexual access to her, but she blamed the account on malicious gossip.
Pierre Gilliard wrote, "He did not like to send Rasputin away, for if Alexei died, in the eyes of the mother, he would have been the murderer of his own son.
From the start, members of the court exchanged gossip about Rasputin. Although some of St. Petersburg's top clergy accepted him as a living prophet, others angrily denounced him as a fraud and a heretic.
Stories from his life in Siberia were heard in St. For instance, he was said to conduct weddings for villagers in exchange for sleeping the first night with the bride.
He lived in St. Petersburg with his two daughters and two housekeepers, and was often visited by persons seeking his blessing, a healing, or a favour with the tsarina.
Women, enchanted by the healer's crude mystique, also came to Rasputin for more "private blessings" and received a private audience in his bedroom, jokingly called the "Holy of Holies".
Rasputin liked to preach a unique theology that one must become familiar with sin before having a chance to overcome it. Alexandra sat for days at his bedside, and she rarely ate or slept.
The doctors expected Alexei to die, and a priest performed his last rites. The court officials prepared an official telegram to announce the death of the Tsarevich.
In desperation, Alexandra sent a telegram to Rasputin, who replied: "God has seen your tears and heard your prayers. Do not grieve. The Little One will not die.
Do not allow the doctors to bother him too much. From , Alexandra came to rely increasingly on Rasputin and to believe in his ability to ease Alexei's suffering.
This reliance enhanced Rasputin's political power. His role in the court seriously undermined Romanov rule during the First World War.
Rasputin was assassinated to end his perceived interference in political matters, on 30 December Amongst the conspirators were the nobleman Prince Felix Yusupov , who was married to Nicholas II's niece, Princess Irina of Russia and Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich, who was once close to Nicholas and Alexandra's family.
The outbreak of World War I was a pivotal moment for Russia and Alexandra. The war pitted the Russian Empire of the Romanov dynasty against the much stronger German Empire of the Hohenzollern dynasty.
And I knew nothing of it! This is the end of everything. Alexandra's ties to Germany made her even more unpopular in Russia. Her brother Ernie ruled the Grand Duchy of Hesse and by Rhine, so he fought with the Germans.
The German Emperor, Wilhelm II , was Alexandra's first cousin. Alexandra's sister, Irene, was married to Wilhelm's brother, Heinrich. Ironically, Alexandra was an ardent Russian patriot and disliked the German Emperor.
She privately wrote that Wilhelm II "is really nothing but a clown. He has no real worth. Auch Königin Victoria hatte Bedenken wegen einer solchen Verbindung, da ihr Russland nicht lohnend erschien, um Verbindungen auf politischer Ebene einzugehen.
Es sicherte ihr auch eine gewisse Form der Kontrolle zu. Der junge Zarewitsch gab seiner Braut reichlich Zeit und stellte ihr einen orthodoxen Priester zur Seite, der sie in die Lehren des Glaubens einwies und dessen Zusprache ihr Mut machte.
Und zudem versicherte ihre Schwester Elisabeth ihr, dass sie ihren Glauben nicht aufgeben müsse und beide Richtungen, den evangelischen und orthodoxen Glauben, miteinander verbinden könne.
Zuerst dankte er zugunsten seines Sohnes ab, änderte jedoch die Abdankungsurkunde noch am selben Tag zugunsten seines Bruders. Die Situation für Alexandra spitzte sich immer mehr zu.
Er befürchtete Auswirkungen auf seinen eigenen Thron, da das Zarenpaar auch in seinem Land nicht sehr beliebt war. Nach der Oktoberrevolution jedoch wurden sie in das von den Bolschewiki kontrollierte Jekaterinburg gebracht, wo sie im Ipatjew-Haus untergebracht wurden.
Dort wurden die gesamte Familie, ihr Arzt und drei weitere Bedienstete nach mehrmonatiger Gefangenschaft in der Nacht zum Juli in einem Keller erschossen.
Nach der Oktoberrevolution schied Russland aus dem Krieg aus. Die Leichen der Kaiserfamilie wurden in der Nähe eines ungenutzten Minenschachts namens Ganina Jama , nördlich von Jekaterinburg vergraben.
