Tsesarevich Nikolai of Russia Featured Print

Tsesarevich Nikolai of Russia

Engraving from a photograph of Nikolai, Tsesarevich of Russia (1843-1865), eldest son and heir of Tsar Alexander II. The Tsesarevich was a gifted young man trained in a liberal tradition by the finest tutors available in the expectation that he would one day have reigned as Tsar. After celebrating his engagement to Princess Dagmar of Denmark with his family in Darmstadt in October 1864, the Tsesarevich went on to Italy to continue the educational tour he had started some months before. In Florence he suddenly fell victim to back pain so severe, he had to be carried. He spent six weeks in bed, undergoing a series of painful treatments for a spinal abscess, and as soon as he could be moved he was taken to Nice, where his mother was spending the winter. There, French doctors disagreed with the diagnosis, viewing the 21-year-old's back pain as rheumatism and prescribing spinal massage. The massage spread the infection to Nikolai's bone marrow and brain and his condition deteriorated steadily. He died on 24 April 1865. On his deathbed he requested that Princess Dagmar should marry his younger brother Alexander. Dagmar later became Empress Maria Feodorovna, wife of Tsar Alexander III. Date: 6th May 1865

Marriage of Princess Alice to Prince Louis Featured Print

Marriage of Princess Alice to Prince Louis

The marriage of Princess Alice, third child and second daughter of Queen Victoria, to Prince Louis of Hesse-Darmstadt, in the dining room of Osborne House, the Royal residence on the Isle of Wight. Between the announcement of their engagement and the wedding itself, the Prince Consort, Albert, had died in December 1861, and the subsequent long period of mourning overshadowed the ceremony, a mood not helped by dreary weather on the day. Above the altar is the celebrated painting by Winterhalter of Queen Victoria, Albert and the Royal children, and above the doorway to the left is a portrait of the Duchess of Kent, mother of Queen Victoria, who had died in March 1861. Watched by her mother, seated to the left, and family, Alice was given away by her uncle, Alberts brother Ernest, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, and had four bridesmaids - her sisters Helena, Louise and Beatrice, and Princess Anna, the sister of Louis.
2 July 1862
