Emperor Alexander III loved the family gatherings at Fredensborg Palace in Denmark.
On one occasion Alexander drenched King Oscar II of Sweden and Norway with water.

Faberg-Eggs...



These Faberg-Eggs are somewhat sinister, taking into account what later happened to the Romanovs!

Meant as a precious easter-surprise - "Oh, look, what is in there!"... Well, the real surprise were the Bolsheviks crawling out of snake eggs...

And that under Lenin and Stalin so much of the russian cultural heritage was then sold abroad! I wonder, what else ended up in the West!

Have only just found your link and I want to thank you for the wonderful historic photos and the quality of them is marvelous. Many thanks.

As for the missing Faberge eggs. One can only hope that they will appear again one day. Or we that we finally find out one day conclusively what happened to them, if they were pulled apart.

Empress Marie Feodorovna travelled to Elsinore in 1900.

There is a pink ribbon in the lesser coat of arms of Empress Maria Fiodorowna, (the picture in Wikipedia). Do you know what is the meaning of the ribbon? And one more issue, Maria Fiodorowna was a great rose lover. Do you have any infomation, what a variety or group of roses she liked best? Have you ever heard of her imperial rose?
Thank you in advance for any help.

President Putin attended the inauguration of the statue to Tsar Alexander III in Livadia Palace, Crimea. Tsar Alexander III is viewed as one of the best monarchs Russia had. His famous words "Russia only has two allies: the army and the navy" are often repeated by President Putin and other government officials.

Far as I know, she didn't speak Finnish.

Danish, Swedish, German... are similar.

Danish, swedish and norwegian are similar. German is not similar at all to those languages in understanding. The scandinavians can basicly speak their native toungue in the three countries. You cant do that with german

Thank you for this nice video,@Queen Claude!

I was surprised, how proud Queen Margarethe was of her famous relative, Empress Dagmar.

After all I thought, Empress Dagmar was just a royal too. But Empress of Russia seems to be something, a lot, more, than Queen of Denmark.

In Alexander III's time, was Danish ever used in court?

Why would Danish be used? Dagmar/Marie was a Russian Empress. She adored her homeland but on her marriage became Russian first and foremost. There would have been no Danish people at Court to speak it with her anyway. French was the language of polite society in 19th century Russia but Tsar Alexander used Russian within family circles a lot too.

We do know that Queen Victoria didn't allow Alexandra to bring any Danish staff with her when she went to Britain but whether Dagmar had the same restriction I have no idea. She may or may not have had someone with her in Russia who only spoke Danish.

When Alexandra, Princess of Wales, visited her sister in Russia, might not Alexandra and Marie speak Danish?

Yes, when all the siblings got together, when visiting each other or in Denmark on holiday, they would speak in Danish.
