Alexandra: The Last Tsarina

description:

A popular biography of Alexandra Feodorovna. Illustrated with black and white plates.

unique features:

An accessible style, and an abundance of anecdotes.

similar to:

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

in my opinion:

An easy, compelling read, but not very accurate or reliable. The author relied knowingly on fictional memoirs and rumors as sources. The Last Empress, by Greg King, is far superior from an academic point of view.
