Her Majesty Queen Alexandra: 18441925, Queen consort of Edward VII of Great Britain, whom she married in 1863. She was the daughter of King Christian IX of Denmark, sister of Empress Marie Feodorovna of Russia.

She was especially patient with her hubby's infidelity. And her people loved her. She had a big switch going from the danish lifestyle to the British, but seems to have had adapted well. I love the fact she introduced some new jewels to the RF. It's a pity at least one tiara was sold.

I see a strong resemblance to her in Queen Margrethe and the Queen M.'s niece Alexandra. Thank you for posting the pictures.

I believe she had problems with her hearing for most of her adult life. I don't think she used sign language though.

She used to call King Olav of Norway for "my little Hamlet" since he was born Prince of Denmark.

Great pictures!

She is one of the most beautiful and elegant queen I have ever seen.
Even though she had a problem on hearing but she still gained the love and admiration of the people.

Thank you Poppy for all of the amazing pics.
I love Queen Alexandra. She's like a beautiful page in the english history books.
She will always be remembered.

Thank you Pdas1201 for the lovely pictures. She was such a beautiful woman and she certainly had an elegance about her - something that didn't disappear at all as she aged.
