Russian Tsarina. Born Frederica Louise Charlotte Wilhelmina, she was the daughter of Frederick Wilhelm III, King of Prussia and Louise of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. She married her second cousin Grand Duke Nikolai Pavlovitch of Russia in 1817, and took the name Alexandra Feodorovna. They had seven children. Nikolai ascended the throne in 1825 as Tsar Nicholas I. The tsarina interfered little in politics, preferring the role of devoted wife and mother. Empress Alexandra was widowed in 1855, and died five years later at the age of 62.
