IPTC INFO
CaptionMaria Feodorovna Romanova born Princess Dagmar of Denmark November 26 1847–October 13 1928 was Empress Consort of Russia. She was the second daughter of Christian IX of Denmark and Louise of Hesse. After her marriage to Alexander III of Russia she became the Empress Consort of Russia as Maria Feodorovna Romanova Cyrillic: Mapия Фёдopoвна Романова. Among her children was the last Russian monarch the Emperor Nicholas II whom she outlived by ten years. _______________ Princess Marie Sophie Frederikke Dagmar of Denmark was named after her kinswoman Marie Sophie Friederike of Hesse-Kassel 1767–1852 Queen Dowager of Denmark. Dagmar's father soon became an heir to the throne of Denmark largely due to his wife's succession rights as niece of King Christian VIII. Born as a daughter of a relatively impoverished princely cadet line she was baptized into the Lutheran faith. Her father became King of Denmark in 1863 on the death of King Frederik VII. Due to the brilliant alliances of his children he became known as the "Father-in-law of Europe." Most of her life she was known as Maria Feodorovna in Russian Мария Фёдоровна the name which she took when converting to Orthodoxy immediately before her 1866 marriage to the future Tsar Alexander III. She was known within her family as Minnie. Maria Feodorovna was the younger sister of Alexandra Queen Consort of King Edward VII and mother of George V of the United Kingdom which helps to explain the striking resemblance between Nicholas II and George V. Her younger brother was King George I of Greece. Her eldest brother became King Frederik VIII. Her youngest sister was Thyra Duchess of Cumberland.
