The Life and Tragedy of Alexandra Feodorovna, Empress of Russia

£39.99

Product description

A biography of the last Empress of Russia by someone who knew her well. The Empress was born Alix of Hesse and by Rhine in 1872 and was renamed Alexandra Feodorovna when she adopted the Russian Orthodox faith. She was empress of Russia from 1894 until she was killed by the Soviets in 1917. Sophie Buxhoeveden has tried to make this book not the formal biography of a sovereign, but the life of a very human woman, forced by fate to be a heroine of tragedy. It is the record of a life, not the tale of daily happenings at Court.

The work was first published in 1928 and this edition is one of 250 copies reprinted by Royalty Digest in 1996. The introduction is by J. C. Squire.
The book has green boards and gilt titles; spine ends have minor bumping but otherwise the book has a fine appearance. Pages are clean and bright. There are 18 illustrations including the frontispiece portrait.
