Russian Royalty~ Grand Duchess in the Imperial House of Romanov~She was youngest daughter of Czar Nicholas I and Alexandra Fyodorovna. A beautiful young lady with a charming charming personality, she was talented with a trained singing voice. She married Prince Frederick William of Hesse, who came to Russia with a possible romantic interest in Alexandra's older sister Olga but, he fell in love with Alexandra the very evening he met her. This situation did not upset Olga or Alexander's parents, who gave permission for marriage to the couple. Before the wedding, the bride became sick and diagnosed with tuberculosis. She became pregnant shortly after the marriage, which complicated the situation as she went into labor about 2 months early, delivered a son who died within hours, and Alexandra died shortly after on the same day. Her son Wilhem was buried with her in her arms. Her parents and husband never did recover from her death. At the palace in St. Petersberg, there is a memorial bench in the garden with a small sculpture bust of the Grand Duchess Alexander. A tiara was fashioned from wheat-shaped diamonds, which embellished one of her gowns. This tiara is now the traditional wedding tiara of the Hessian princely family, and was last worn by Floria of Faber-Castell when she married in 2003.
