If that's what Alexander II thought then he was wrong since he himself was not 100% of Russian descent.

Noble Consort Ming, You are correct that Alexander II was not 100% of Russian descent.
Alexander II's mother Alexandra Fyodorovna was originally Charlotte of Prussia.

A great-grandson of Russia’s Tsar Alexander III has died in a small town in outback Australia but his remains were left in a morgue for two months because authorities were unaware of his identity.

Leonid Kulikovsky, 72, a distant relative of both the Queen and Prince Philip, died while walking his dog at a caravan park on September 27 in Katherine, a remote town in the Northern Territory, where he lived alone.

A member of Russia’s exiled Romanov family, he was the son of Guriy, whose mother was Grand Princess Olga, the youngest daughter of Emperor Alexander III, Russia’s penultimate Tsar.

Olga is telling nonsense, I am sorry to say. She often saw Diana "bedecked with Romanov jewels" which simply is not true. Diana had relatively few jewels: a diadem from her family as a loan and the Lovers' Knot Diadem as a loan from the Queen. She has some nice necklaces, bracelets and other bijoux. But "bedecked in Romanov jewels"? No way. Show me the pieces which once were worn by Tsarinas and graced Diana...

The article doesn't say that Diana owned the jewelry. It says that Q.Mary bought a lot of russian jewelry from the Romanovs after the revolution, and to be honest, that's not the first time i've heard that so there's probably some truth in it.
And most of the jewelry that Q.Mary acquired has been passed down the royal family and has been worn, among others by Diana, take for instance the "grand duchess Vladimir" tiara
Grand Duchess Vladimir Tiara

This link contains a picture of Diana wearing it

The litteral quote in the article is: "I often used to see Princess Diana decked out in Romanov gems."

That is simply not true. Diana has never worn the Grand Duchess Vladimir diadem. Her only diadem -besides the Spencer Diadem- was a copy of the so-called "Cambridge Lovers' Knot Diadem" (picture). That diadem was ordered by Queen Mary and is a copy of a similar diadem owned by Augusta, Duchess of Cambridge.

The jeweller Garrard used the broken-up "Ladies of England" diadem (picture) and pear-shaped pearls which once adorned the "Girls of Great Britain" diadem (picture) plus some loose pearls to create this diadem. Nothing to do with the Romanovs.



Olga Romanova has a rich fantasy.

Out of 16 nearest ancestors of Emperor Alexander II only one was Russian,Grand Duchess Anna Petrovna of Russia.

The rest were all Germans.

So,of course he was not 100% ,but only 6.25% of Russian descent.
