^^ I had read that somewhere .. Wasn't it rumored his mother was plotting to assassinate Nicholas II in an attempt to place her son on throne?  I heard there was a lot of bad blood between Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna & the Empress...

Actually, the plan was to dethrone Nicholas, imprison Alexandra, and then someone would rule as Regent until Alexei was ready to rule.

Of course, the Vladimir certainly had plans of their own. Alexandra objected to the idea of Grand Duke Boris (son of Maria Pavlovna) marrying Olga. Thing is, it's just as well that the daughters perished, I cannot imagine how much pressure they would be under to marry to continue the direct line. Imagine losing your parents and then being surrounded by those eager to marry you just so they can seize headship of the Imperial House through you. Too much really.

That line of Grand Dukes and Duchesses is tainted by the virulent ambition that runs in their veins.

Ninety year old Prince Dimitri Romanov dies in Denmark. He'd been to Russia earlier this year to receive an award.

When Tsarevich Nicholas asked his parents for permission to marry Princess Alix of Hesse, Empress Marie Feodorovna opposed Nicholas' wishes. Marie Feodorovna feared Alix would diminish her influence with Nicholas.
