Last Empress: The Life and Times of Alexandra Feodorovna, Tsarina of Russia


A full biography of Alexandra, from childhood to death.

unique features:

Explores the author's ideas about the influences of Alexandra's childhood, and dispels the idea that Rasputin used the imperial family solely for political gain.

similar to:

Alexandra: The Last Tsarina

in my opinion:

Occasionally relies on the fictional memoirs of Marfa Mouchanow for information, but source notes allow readers to sort fact from fiction. Even so, the best biography on Alexandra to date.
